Short Story Therapy

  So, I may have discovered my own cure for writer's block!!! For anyone who doesn't know, I'm working really hard on my first full-length novel. But lately it seems that all I can do is re-write what I've already said. So basically, I'm getting nowhere.

Solution: I decided to quit for a little while. But instead of laying down my pen, (figuratively, of course. I don't actually use pens. I'm a lefty and they make my hand yucky.) I wrote two totally different short stories and I read a book. And guess what? I'm now brimming with new ideas for my own book. Heck, I even named the manuscript, which I've been trying to do for six months. Now I just need to get the ideas out of my head and onto the paper and I'll be a famous author in no time. It is that easy, right? (Read with tons of sarcasm.)


  1. Good luck with the book and the short stories. You can do this!!! BTW I love the new look of your blog.

  2. Lol! I'm commenting here to see if it works. Glad you've been inspired. Participating in writing prompts help a lot.
