Write for the Jugular

Writer’s Block? Or Bad idea?

Writer’s block is bullshit. It doesn’t exist. And that’s not some corporate workshop positive thinking crap, it’s true, there’s no such thing. It’s just one of those things people believe in because they’ve been told about it so many times. Like Bigfoot or life on Mars.

That’s not to say that writers don’t get stuck sometimes. You can’t figure out where your character should go next, you’re not sure how to fix a big, fat plot hole. It happens.

But block? Bullshit. It’s no different than an electrician who can’t figure out where the problem with the line is. He’ll get it. He might have to open the walls or pull a thousand feet of cable first, but he’ll find the problem. And then he’ll fix the problem.
