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)

Hey, it's David Baldacci... What would you expect?

Decent enough story with a host of good characters. However, I never got a good feel for the main protagonist (somewhat two dimensional) and didn't feel any empathy for his plight.
