Goodreads asked Shelly Crane:

How do you deal with writer’s block?

Shelly Crane What's that?! ;)

I've never had writer's block before. I have the opposite. My brain won't turn off and I have too MANY ideas. When I first started writing, I had 3 or four different books going at once because I couldn't stop the ideas from coming and had to start writing a new book or it would drive me crazy. I have notebooks full of new books ideas, notes, lines, plots, things characters would say all over the house. Now, I have tamed myself to write just one book at a time, but the notebooks are still there and they are still full to the brim of ideas that drive me insane if I don't write them down. I even text them to myself, which is a new thing I just started doing. :) I currently have a new book idea that is eating away at me to start, but I can't until Undeniably Chosen is done, but I've already had the cover done and everything. It's BEGGING me to write it. But I refuse to start it, not even a word, until I'm done with UC. But it's not making it easy. I can't wait to start it and share it with you all!!
