A few weeks ago I wrote about my bout with writer’s block, and how I needed a good “slap” to get over it. That got me thinking: how do other writers get over those moments (or hours) when the blank screen is so imposing?
So I asked for advice from some very good writers whose work appears in print, broadcast and online.
You’ll see that in addition to sharing a gift, they also share an understanding that writing well is the product of discipline and hard work.
I hope their advice helps you the next time the words won’t come. Most of all, I hope they inspire you to write.
