Writer’s Block October 10, 2012

I am really beginning to see a problem with writer’s block. I have limited computer time each day. Using a small solar power system that does not allow me to use the computer for long periods is a challenge, but not one that is insurmountable. My issue is more basic than that. I get writer’s block on a regular basis. Some days, it seems that the words simply flow. I am able to write up to 2 chapters at a time. Other nights, and somewhere between my walking over to the computer and my backside meeting the chair, the thoughts simply evaporate.

I am beginning to truly believe the source of the block is that I am trying to write what I want and not letting the book write itself, so to speak On nights when I allow the words to simply flow from inside of me, the writing is so much easier to do. When I try to put my own interpretations in to what I see coming from the book, I seem to hit a snag and the flow simply falters to a stand still.

It is time for me to let go and let the book take me where it will.
