Happy World Book Day!! How cool. Didn’t know there was such a thing!
Now, I wonder if there is a Southern Book Day. That would also be cool. I’m just a little prone to southern things. One can’t help it when you’re brought up in Alabama, Georgia and parts of Florida.
So, having some “issues.” I took a break from doing research and decided to work on a short story for an upcoming writers workshop. Whoa! I have writers block!!! And yes, it is real. I had to dig up some old stories that I don’t particularly like and try to fix one or two. Not working. So what do I do? Punt.
Yes, I punt. I will get out all of the “craft” info – stuff that tells me how to write, how to find a plot, how to make characters’ effective, etc. So back to the basics for this writer. I’ve got umpteen books on the subject and some I should have memorized by now. So, here goes…
Maybe, just maybe…I’ll read a favorite author’s book. See how to do it again. Yeah, that’ll do it.
Have a great week!
