You have to write yourself out of a thinking block.

  1. Shawn, so true. Some think and think while the page remains empty and white.

    • I do timed exercises with my students and ask them what they discover. They will frequently say how they had nothing to write, but once they started, all sorts of unexpected things poured out. A valuable lesson for young writers to learn, I think!

  2. Rhonda Says:

    Reblogged this on A Novel Journey and commented:
    Love this little truth. 🙂

  3. I’m interested in the root causes of writer’s block. After forty years of writing, I’ve just experienced it for the first time. It’s all grist to the mill.
