I’m reminded of my post: How To Write And Stay Focused. Today as I’m staring at my laptop screen, I realize that I didn’t mention much about how to get through writers block in that post. It’s because I don’t hit writers block often but when I do, like today, I’m not so sure how to get passed it. I mentioned that The Duck Pond would be very challenging for me to write, well…here we go. I’m challenged. I hit these walls with this novel that I haven’t run into with Legend or with The Guardians of Historia (the third novel I’m writing) and nothing I do seems to help. So I write these random blog entries to loosen my brain a bit. Sometimes it works. The problem I have with The Duck Pond really, is the subject matter. It’s close to my heart, maybe a little too close. Although I am a fiction writer and this will be a book of fiction, there are some elements that are based on true events. For me, that makes things difficult which is the reason I keep walking away from it, picking it up, putting it down and not finishing it. But I am determined this time around and I will finish it. Maybe the treadmill will unlock the vice I have gripped around my brain…or maybe it’s gripped around my heart. Maybe both. Run, run, run.
