Jennifer Ellision was born and raised in South Florida and lives in perpetual fear of temperatures below 60F. She spent a great deal of her childhood staying up past her bedtime with a book and a flashlight. When she couldn't find the stories she wanted to read, she started writing them.

She has an OTP, loves character analysis, and is a master of the fangirl flail, with a particular soft spot for fanfiction. She frequently bursts into song (and they are often of a Disney persuasion). Sailor Moon is one of her favorite things on this planet. If you make her any kind of fanart, she'll love you forever.

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.

As you may know, I’ve had the idea for Over Raging Tides for a long time.


So much time, in fact, that I’ve had plenty of time to think over what I wanted out of developing a cover for it. I knew that I wanted both a ship and a feminine representation. The book was, after all about female pirates.


Developing a cover on my own

I tried developing a cover myself in my free time years a...
