USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer Ellision writes about daring young women in magical worlds. She survives on a steady diet of books, podcasts, and her favorite magical tropes. Jennifer frequently wakes up early to work before she has to "people" and can often be found squirreled away in her office, getting some writing done--or in her local library, agonizing over revisions.

If all else fails, look under the covers. She's probably hiding out with a good young adult fantasy series.

Writer's block can be super frustrating, so I'm sorry you're experiencing this. I've dealt with my own in a variety of ways depending on the situation. Here are a few suggestions for you.

1) Freewrite. Maybe put on some music on and write whatever comes into your mind
2) Try some writing prompts. Maybe it'll spark some inspiration for a wholly original work or maybe you'll like the prompt so much that it takes on a life of its own for you. Either way, you can stretch your writing muscles.
3) Bounce a story back and forth between a friend or two-- continuing a story between you may turn out to be fun and it's a little less pressure to get from Point A to Point B.
4) Consider turning off that internal editor and diving into NaNoWriMo next month. I've done it a couple of times myself and it can really help you push past a block.
5) Read a book that's totally different from what you're writing. OR read something in your genre. I find that sometimes reading a good book inspires me to want to write the best thing that *I* can.

Above all, find what works for you. For some people, that's writing every day. For others, they need a break inbetween or a week on and a week off. Whatever it is, don't beat yourself up for not doing what works for others. You can do it!

Good luck.
