Part of writer's block in my opinion is not having had the life experience to take on some characters.(this is speaking of fiction of course) When I still feel nothing coming on I might sit down and write a single moment, a scene, as if creating a door into the place I'm trying to find. For me the best things come as a surprise since I'm not a heavy plotter in advance, since any plot will be changed by the needs and often unexpected deeds of the characters. I love being surprised by my characters, and have had an entire novel pivot on the whim of a tertiary character who becomes a major protagonist on their own volition.(less)

When you owe a historical work to those who lived it and the entire genre doesn't previously exist it's really gratifying to have so much interest. Hippie Hill, or How I Spent My Vacation is a runaway teenage romp in the early seventies that stumbles into the real outlaw counterculture of the day you were never meant to know about. The psychedelics, the guiltless sex, the early pot industry in... Read more of this blog post »
