The Attack of Writer's Block
Guys, I'm stuck!!
I've been working on this full length play for over a year and I can't seem to get past the first half! Like, seriously?! I have a reading. I read through it. I make edits. I put it down. I return to it. But, the same results come through. I have no clue what to do!
So, I made a schedule of writing days and I must stick to it. Even if it's just for 30 minutes, I must push through the block. I recently polled my Facebook followers to ask about their favorite books and plays. My thought process was, well, if I read others work maybe I'll get inspired. We'll see how that goes.
I just don't want to keep banging my head against the keyboard with this one, but I also know that this piece has some great potential. So, I keep going back to the drawing board.
What do you do when you're stuck? What are some methods you put in place to push through? And, when do you know that it's time to move on?
