Pushing forward, no matter how awful your writing, is essential to getting your strength and confidence back to continue your work. If I feel stuck on a scene or chapter, I usually sleep on it. It's amazing what clarity can come from a good night's sleep. (less)
L.V. Pires I think the best thing about being a writer is finding out what you're capable of. There are no limits to what you can imagine.
