My personal opinion…moreI don't usually get writer's block, but when I do, I tend to take a break and give my mind something else to focus on for a while. My personal opinion is that writer's block typically comes from two places: (1) not spending enough time truly thinking about and 'living with' my story, or (2) distractions and real life events getting in the way of my focus.

Both of these issues tend to resolve themselves if I take a step back from trying to write and do something else relaxing instead, such as a walk with my dog or a bike ride. Ideally, I am still thinking about my story, but no longer have the self-added pressure of staring at a blank screen.

By the time I get back to my computer, I almost always have something to write.(less)

For me, the best part about being a writer is the creative process.

It's not uncommon for me to have storylines and plot points that don't instantly reveal themselves. Often times, I have to spend a lot of time trying to visualize what happens next, or how to resolve a plot hole.

Few things are as exciting as that euphoric moment when things come together and I figure out how to proceed.(less)
