It's not a matter of what some call writer's block. I know what I want to write, I've been thinking about it for months. I don't do much outlining, being and organic writer. I know how the book starts, some of the middle, and the end. Now comes the hard part.
I'm headed to Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers Conference next month to get some hands on work done in a brainstorming class with Lynette Eason. This will help me round out some ideas and dig deeper. I'm looking forward to the class and everything Ridgecrest has to offer. I have a certain number of words I want to get done before that time arrives. But I needed that proverbial shot in the arm this week and found some. So I'm sharing it with you now so you can get back on target if needed. Or maybe you're just thinking about writing and need to hear from others. This will help newbies and seasoned writers alike. So click on any of the links below to get a bit of encouragement, guidance, inspiration, kick-in the-pants, whatever you might need at this moment. You might want to save a favorite or go looking for your own. Build your own file of encouragement blasts and use as needed. Enjoy.
