Dealing with writer's block I cannot believe I am writing this blog. Just the thought of it gave me writer's block. As a business journalist, I wrote several news stories over six years but never once...
There are good days when words come flying out of thin air and I can write five pages without any effort and there are non-writing days when even twenty words are a headache (sometimes, I don't even get that, especially when I'm stressed).
When I was fairly new to writing, I thought most writers sat in front of their desks, pen in hand, their notebook open in front of them, fire burning in the hearth, a cup of tea right by their side, and words just started flowing.
Writers aren't born with extra creativity; they just use their creative impulses well. Some authors like Danielle Steel get so good at it, they are able to churn out multiple novels in one year. Problem is, you don't know when that million dollar idea will come to you. People get their ideas doing all sorts of day-to-day things.
