Young Adult Dark Urban Fantasy Author ~


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.

  1. Going to the gym always helps me! Wishing you luck on your latest manuscript. I’m in the trenches with you, and some days we just need to run 🙂
