I am working on a novel and I have hit a terrible block. I get up from the screen and go to the notebook. I drop the notebook and venture back to the screen.
I listen to people talk. I read what others have written. Yet, I still cannot put a complete thought onto a page or the neon screen that glares back at me.
So I ask you. How do you deal with writer’s block? Do you get up and walk away for ten minutes? An hour? A day? A week? Do you have some sort of ritual to overcome this wall of defeat? Do you start writing about something completely unrelated to what you have already started?
