Yvonne C. Hebert
I'm not sure I get writer's block -- at least not often. I don't write for days on end at times, but the words are churning around in my head, plots are developing and problems with my story are showing up and being resolved in my head. If I don't get the writing done, it's because I've gotten overwhelmed with living in the real world, with doing the tasks we've all got to do to stay alive and functioning in our culture. After a while, I'll rebel and let life go to pot and stay up all night if necessary to get my thoughts on paper. If I do get writer's block where I just can't think anymore, I'll realize I'm depressed and it's ice cream time and playing with the dog time. I have to get into that little kid part of my brain so that I can relax and become myself again.
