Here's a secret: the first draft will be wrong on so many levels but it will also have magic if you give yourself permission to write crap. Write crap. Get something on the page. Repeat. When you get to the end of that first crappy draft, you'll know your characters, your conflicts, your setting...all the basic building blocks of the story. Then you can go back and start creating something wonderful.
Sometimes "writer's block" is actually creative exhaustion or physical exhaustion. When that's the case, I refill the creative well. When I start to feel like I can't write another word, I set a timer for ten minutes and say I'll just do that short time, or I say 100 words. I can do 100 words. Or I say ONE PAGE. Just one page. I do whatever the tiny goal is and sometimes it gets me through the exhaustion. Sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't, I hit the goal and then go read or watch Netflix or go for a walk or go take a nap. If you can end knowing where you want to go the next day and then shut the computer and walk away, your brain can percolate subconsciously while you do other stuff. Usually the next day you come back refreshed.
I did The Artist's Way several years ago, and Julia Cameron gives LOTS of advice about this. I HIGHLY recommend working through that book if you find yourself in that place of fear or exhaustion OR if you think you want to write (or partake of any other art), but you're just not sure. When you finish the workshop, your creative soul will NEED an outlet. :)(less)

Best Intentions

Seriously. I had the best intentions. I wrote my goals out, I packed the iPad with the keyboard for the trip to visit DD and DGD, I set multiple alarms. This is tougher than going to the Y to catch a Zumba class before the end of the day. I loooooove my characters, I loooooooove my story, I went on a research trip. And yet, I've fallen off the word count highway.Simple truth: all the planing in th Read more of this blog post »

“I have an inner Regina George. The manipulative, deceitful, belittling queen bee in the movie Mean Girls talks smack, giving my self-esteem Ray Rice beat downs. Don’t judge. I’ll bet you have an inner Regina George, who makes you feel like crap because of your thighs/boyfriend/job/laugh. We all do. Some are just better at silencing their Reginas before she inflicts real damage. My Regina is telling me I am going to lose my job.”
