Writing can be so exciting when your fingers and brain cooperate. When you are feeling the momentum kicking in and suddenly your realize you are in writing bliss. Whether you are writing from an outline or from the hip completing a specified word count is great. Okay, so you’re typing away and this character starts nagging you. Before you know it you’re stuck. You can’t believe it. The character was perfect in your head, you had the scene down. Now, nothing is working and your character has fizzled. Writer’s block has set in.
Don’t let this become a dilemma or even the demise of your project. Step back for a moment and determine if you really need this character. Review your manuscript and read it as if the character were not there at all. Another option would be to start writing without the character. Just try it for one or two pages. If all else fails put the project on a back burner and work on something else until the fog clears. These are just a few examples of curing writer’s block. Happy writing!
