Writers Block. That evil thing that prevents one from moving forward on a work in progress (WIP). And I have it bad. I can’t get past this point in my WIP because I have a lack of connection with the characters. FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER.
My characters are alluding me. It’s as if they have left the area for a vacation. These characters have been in my mind for years and now that I have time to actually write their stories, they’ve decided to disappear. I can’t figure out their motivations for their actions.
I have yet to find a solution. I’ve read up about it. I’ve asked for advice. I’ve tried reading more. I’ve tried working on a different piece of writing. I’ve attempted to walk away from it. I’ve describes the storyline and characters to someone else. Yet nothing. No ideas.
It has also carried over to the blog. I don’t know what to write about or how to write it. This post only popped up because a close friend of mine suggested it and even then it took a bit of explaining before I seemingly could grasp the idea of it.
How do you fix writer’s block?
