If I'm stuck, it usually means I've gone off course in the story, and if I can pinpoint where I messed up and fix it, the blockage usually resolves. But generally speaking, if you're just feeling creatively strangled, writing for pleasure or working on another project can help. It can also help to ask friends, family, or colleagues for help resolving a thorny plot problem. Or sometimes getting away for a bit, taking a shower or a walk, can shake a solution loose.(less)

There's no guarantee you succeed, but of the writers who did make it, they all have one thing in common.

They didn't quit. So believe in yourself (even if no one else does) and keep writing. (less)

“There were different kinds of strength. I knew that now. It didn't always come from a knife or a willingness to fight. Sometimes it came from endurance, where the well ran deep and quiet. Sometimes it came from compassion and forgiveness.”
Ann Aguirre, Enclave

“I never belonged anywhere until I met you.”

“I'll always want him. Until every sun goes dark in every sky, until I am nothing more than long-forgotten cosmic dust, I will want him. And even then I suspect my particles will long for his.”

Ann Aguirre Head over here to watch the trailer for Bronze Gods. http://www.goodreads.com/videos/41600...

Comment for a chance to win a signed copy of Bronze Gods! (This is one of my books; I wrote it with my husband.) If you like steampunk fantasy, check it out.


Christian Will we see more of Thimble and Stone? I was more engaged in their story, than the two main books.

Stone gets his own story, a novella that will be released before Outpost.

So far no. Maybe someday. :)


Lyndsey I was wondering if any studios have shown interest in optioning the rights to the Sirantha Jax series. It would be great to see a movie but even better would be a TV series, especially since the absence of shows like Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, and Lost. Just curious! She'd be perfect to base a show around.


Belinda Kroll I love the covers of your Sirantha Jax books. I've always thought they were lovely and I just wanted to let you know!
