I was hoping that I would be finished reading Crescendo by today, but unfortunately I'm not. Though, I am close, very close. So close I want to sit in my office reading, but I don't think my boss would appreciate that very much. Instead I am desperately trying to come up with a topic to blog about. I'm coming up empty. It's like writers block for my blog. Actually I think I just found my topic.
I think that is why I get ideas for books and dialogue for my characters at the most bizarre times. I'm notorious for getting ideas in the shower and it's probably because that is the one time I clear my head and relax. And I can't even tell you how many times I will be out doing things and suddenly I'm scrambling for my notepad because I have to get my thoughts down on paper. Though, so many times when I sit myself in front of my computer with the intention of writing I go blank. I stare at the screen my mind a jumbled mess of thoughts and then I go blank. Usually when this happens I'll pick up a book and start reading, watch TV or exercise and hope that inspiration will strike again which it usually does. However, there are times when even those methods don't seem to work for me because my mind is still going a mile a minute. Who knew it was as simple as stop thinking? So I'm curious, what do you do to cure your writers block?
