More on Writer's Block

Hello Fellow Writers!

Yesterday I reworked a scene in "Marrying a Movie Star", and then I had to rework the following scene in Chapter 3 to follow up with it. It's amazing to me how quick and easy these revisions have been for me to work on - even major overhauls like rewriting a scene are no problem because I am so in tune with the characters that it's almost like they are writing the scene themselves. The revisions that are taking me less than hour to do would have completely baffled me and stopped me cold just last year.

Last night I thought up an really fun idea for my next romance novel, and I got so excited I almost said "Forget 'Snowed in with a Millionaire"! Let's scrap that and get started on "Seduced by her Captor"! But there is unlimited time, I am under no contracts, so what I did this morning was write down my idea for "Seduced by her Captor" and file it away so I can use it when I am done with "Snowed in with a Millionaire" for my next novel.

I wanted to put more information on writer's block. Yesterday's advice from the experts was to work through it, stay at your desk and get it done (that's what works for me, personally) - but this video shows Rebecca Sato, a professional freelance writer, giving basically the opposite advice. She suggests getting up and moving around.



Today is Yom Kippur, so I don't think I will be getting much done today since I have to be at synagogue, I'm fasting, and I have a cold. If I do get anything done it will be - you guessed it - more plotting of "Snowed in with a Millionaire".

Wish me luck, and good luck to you too! If you are Jewish then I wish you an easy fast!

Yours Truly,
Shoshanna Evers
