I find myself sort of blocked up inside. I know what the cure for that is, some uninterrupted writing time. I need to just blow out all the blockages inside me and write, write, write. It doesn't matter if it's good or not, I just need to do something. Write something.
I did a little writing over the weekend and things did not flow well. That usually a sign that something inside me is holding me back. I do have a couple of story ideas in my head and I think I'll write them instead of shoving them back behind editing and my next novel. When inspiration strikes, always open the door.
And if you want to get a writer something, give them the gift of time...and a swift kick in the hinder to make them use it writing.
