Ellie Firestone lives in Texas with her family, two dogs, and a whole host of fictional characters. At various times in her life she has wanted to be an astronaut, a cowgirl, a ninja, a superhero, and an explorer. However, once she realized that a writer can be all of those things at once, she never looked back.

I have a three-step process for dealing with this.

1. Step away from the computer.
2. Lie down with my eyes closed and brainstorm. When did I get bored? What can I do to make it not boring? Will it be as simple as dropping a bomb right now, or will I have to delete the last 20 pages and start again?
3. Get my bottom back in the chair and don't stand up again until I've made some headway.

Writers' block -- I mean boredom -- is deadly. Because if the author gets bored, so does the reader. And if the reader gets bored ... the author is toast.(less)
