It was very frustrating to me, as I'm sure it is for all writers. It's like being pregnant but unable to give birth, or having something on the tip of your tongue but no way to say it. Eventually, I learned to work with my writer's block. Now I will sit and watch movies, dramas or comedies; I will listen to music, all types of music. I will be with my family, and especially the kids in my family (who are always energetic and with something insightful to say). Pretty soon the words that have evaded me come to me like a whisper in a harsh wind, and if I am still enough and quiet enough the words come through crystal clear. I don't push it. I just let the words flow through me. No matter what time it is, day or night, I sit and begin writing.(less)

"Good but somewhat predictable

I did enjoy this book but I did feel it was a bit predictable. Even though I didn't know the exact details, I already knew what would happen at the end halfway thru the book. It's also a short read too.

Quotes by H.L. Sudler  (?)

“You are never more powerful than when you learn. You are never more powerful than when you teach.”
H.L. Sudler

“Before the autumn of our years, there exists a time when we struggle to reconcile what we are with what we wish to be. This time can be known as summer. After spring gives us life, before winter takes it away.”
H.L. Sudler, Summerville

“Do not become too pretty with yourself. And by that I mean, do not be afraid to get down in the dirt and tell stories that need to be told, using the appropriate language needed to convey the tale. Use the world around you, the people in it, the situations, the timeless problems and delimmas and yearnings. The further you get from this, with ornate and flowery language, with homogenized and predictable storytelling, the further away you push the audience. For the reason the reader has come to you, the writer, is to see themselves. In Romance, in Westerns, in Science Fiction, in Horror. They want to be able to put themselves in your story, to live it, see it, breathe it. Even if they are unfamiliar with the world you've created or are frightened by it, or it makes them uncomfortable, the reader wants the thrill of a rollercoaster ride. So give the audience its monies worth. I've said this before and I'll say it again. Tell me a good story and I will listen.”
H.L. Sudler
