I have been working on 5 different writing projects and have been at a standstill for about 4 or 5 days. I found myself wasting time on some writing blogs today when I came across something so simple and back to basics that I thought ‘this may just be the key’. I never (or hardly ever) write an outline of a chapter before I write it. I will write down ideas, how I want the plot to flow, or even a sentence I like but never a complete pre-chapter outline. There are a list of creative reasons I don’t like doing this, mostly dating back to Mr. Gober’s writing class (blahhh). I took a deep breath and picked up a pen and pad and wrote an outline of one of the projects and it flowed out of me in minutes. I guess there is really no such thing as writer’s block– just stubbornness 🙂
