When was the last time you experienced writer’s block? What do you think brought it about — and how did you dig your way out of it?
Writer’s block won the battle yesterday, as it often does. Write a story about a stranger in a photo. Even with a prompt and a photo that spells it out, writer’s block won.
Not that I didn’t write. I wrote in the third person, I wrote in the girl’s voice, I wrote from the kid’s perspective. I just wasn’t happy with any of it so I gave up and went to bed.
I think part of my problem is Fiction Blockage. I seldom read fiction and I don’t make stuff up. Much. I’d like to get better at it.
Will you tell me the story in this photo? I’m curious to see if it’s close to what I was thinking.
C’mon, please? Just a shorty?
