And if I absolutely cannot figure ANYTHING out then I just take a step back for a day and sleep on it. Writer's block often occurs for me when I'm trying to write on one project, it doesn't bother my ability to write other things at all. So sometimes I work on something else that's in my 'maybe' or 'later' pile until the writer's block has left me. Doing all of this honestly helps me get through it faster.(less)

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”

Hi Rose! Thanks for accepting my friend request :)
I'm looking forward to chatting about the books we like too! And thank you about my novella. I hope you enjoy it! I'll be coming out with a new updated edition of it, with added material next summer. Exciting couple of years ahead ;)
