Writer’s Block

So many people ask how have I conquered the dreaded beast known as Writer’s Block?

First of all, I am one of those people who just work through it. Generally I have writer’s block because of the new and shiny idea which is trying to wrangle my attention away from my current project. So I give myself an hour to work on new shiny idea and then set it aside until my current project is over.

 Sometimes when I am stuck on an idea, I go on long walks with my dogs and talk out the problem. They like it because I am talking with them.  Strangers don’t bother me, because I obviously am having deep discussions with two dogs. 😉

If I can’t or don’t feel like leaving the house, I get up and clean the house. A clean house can clean out my mind.

I also create lego structures. 

Things I have heard from other authors:

Keep a journal. You must make writing a habit.

Go to the library and read something new and exciting that interests you.

How do you deal with writer’s block?
