I've been lucky thus far. I haven't been crippled, yet, by writer's block.

That's not to say that once in a while I write myself into a corner. When that happens i sit back and take my time, playing the scene through in my mind. Usually, within hours, I have a resolution for my issue (whatever it may be).

If something stumps me too long, I move on and write in a different or new chapter. This will help from my mind from the previous problem and somewhere in the middle of this new writing, a solution will pop into my mind.

The biggest thing is to just keep on writing. (less)

Think of it as a piece or tale that has never been told before. Until I create it, it doesn't exist. Truly, it feels like bringing life from nothing!(less)

A nice little read

3.5 stars. A nice novel that kept me mostly engaged. Liked most of the characters. Loved Mauve. Some came and went too fast. And there were a few grammatical errors, but not a lot. Fun little dystopian novella.

I liked it. Liked it a lot. Good story, not as preachy as others have reviewed, in my opinion. Another well-crafted novel by the master of lawyer stories.
