Today, we talked about the various species of writer’s block… I guess. But more accurately, we talked about stalling or failing on a project and then ditching THAT PROJECT (or that draft) and doing something different or trying again. What we don’t suggest doing is staring at a blank screen and thinking about how we can’t write and are “blocked.”
Sean and I share the story about how in our new publishing company Realm & Sands(you’re signed up for the mailing list to get our new releases at a discount, right?), we ditched the concept for one of our “sitcoms” because it wasn’t working and replaced it with other projects.
Dave talks about ditching words, Sean talks about pushing through discomfort, and I also share the story of how I COULD have gotten blocked writing The Bialy Pimps but was too new and too stubborn to do so.
