Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This week's topic: How do you defeat writer's block?
To be honest, I don't believe in writer's block. (Maybe that's a trick in itself!) I have days where I can't focus or can't get the words flowing, sure. Everyone does. But it's not some mythical block that I have to break through. That's not how I see it anyway. To me, it is a sign that something isn't working. Maybe I'm stressed or having a hard time with a plot point. Could be that I need to get out of the house and, you know, have a life for a while to get some inspiration.
No matter what it is that's got me off kilter, I always see it as something that can be fixed.
What about you? Do you believe in writer's block?
