As a published novelist and fiction writing coach, I've come to understand that there are two main cause of Writer’s Block.
Each plagues writers in different ways and at different times, whatever the individual writer's experience.
Far and away, the biggest road block to fiction writing is The Inner Critic, that very personal fear monger dwelling within you. It’s almost as if there’s a radio in your head that has only one DJ, the Inner Critic. While you can’t kill your Inner Critic, you can defang it.
The second reason for Writer’s Block is that you genuinely don’t know where to go next with your characters or your plot, or both.
Two of my favorite techniques to help guide students through this block are Using Images As A Bridge Into The Imagination, and a powerful method of asking and answering questions, called What If?
Three Ways To Work With Me
I work with students all around the world, and over the years have developed three ways for writers to work with me in order to move past their writer's block.
Whether you're trying to begin a novel or a short story, or you've already written part of a manuscript, you'll find that each way offers a noticeably different approach and allows you to chose the path that best suits you!
