Creativity is a brain activity involving certain cerebral areas that sometimes simply turn off. In my personal case the reasons are usually psychological and the only thing I can do is to find out the origin of the cause and act accordingly.
If the block is due to lack of ideas, I do something else and wait for inspiration. If it is due to an overcrowding of ideas, I try to do a little mental tidy up while I’m training with my dog or my horse because dealing with animals helps me a lot. Sometimes the blockage is due to the difficulty to find the proper wording; in these cases I try to switch to another language and it often opens the doors to creativity. A block can also be caused by an inner refusal to proceed and I recognize it by a feeling of dissatisfaction that accompanies it. This is for me the worst case; it happens when my subconscious mind tells me that I have not worked well and that I should take a few steps back. When this happens I close my computer and go for a walk. It takes me some time to accept the fact that I have to throw away part of the chapter, or even the whole thing, and re-write it but than, once I am ready to do so, I am unblocked again. What I certainly never do is to stare at the blank page trying to concentrate.

We should define what a writer is: someone claims that the term refers to anyone who writes, while others believe that writers are only those that are published by regular publishing companies. I think it is a way of being.
I do not write from morning to night - I also deal with other things - but mentally I'm always in the "writing mode". I published with several publishers but I struggle to call myself a writer because it would reduce my way of being to a profession.
Considering that for me, writing is a way of life, I would say that the best thing about being a writer is that it keeps me alive.

Gli antidoti/The antidotes

La vita è cambiamento.
Non c’è nulla che sia stabile o sicuro, neanche la morte in quanto alcuni sono convinti di essere eterni. Forse hanno ragione loro.
In questa relatività, si cerca il supporto delle definizioni per delimitare il campo e ottenere un fermo immagine. Ma termini importanti, come amicizia e amore sono carichi di variabili individuali: contengono significati contrastanti ed elementi Read more of this blog post »

Dear Lucinda,
it is always a pleasure to add an equestrian enthusiast to my friends list. I hoe you will soon be able to read "Stable of sorrow", and the new novel published in these days. "Huginn & Muninn" is not about horses but the deep emotional well in which I always plonge my characters is the same. I am keen to read your reviews!
BTW if you love horses I would recommend you take a look at my blog "The Hoofprint" at http://quarterfilly.wordpress.com or on FB. It is a literary project, not the usual stuff about horses.
Best regards.
Sibyl

Milena Kalat • Sibyl von der Schulenburg is well known for her success in tournaments (shows), but that she writes books only few people know. Her latest book Stable of Sorrow is focused on the western show scene and, apart from others, also on “pleasure”. Behind the reserved and polite Sibyl as we know her, a sharp observer and precise analyst hides. As a dentist who places his drill where it hurts the most, she places her sharp pen where the circumstances/situations for our four-legged friends are not fair, by which she literally places a mirror in front of our face. But mostly she tells a story. A story of an American trainer, who stays in Italy because of love. A story of a horse owner who began to doubt the meaning of such tournaments (shows). A story of a rider who lives with her violent husband just because he finances her tournaments (shows). A story of an Italian trainer who literally tries to win over corpses. And if we are made to think about it all after we are finished reading the last page, the purpose of this book is truly fulfilled.
