DO YOU KNOW THAT KIND OF WRITER’S BLOCK WHERE YOU ALREADY HAVE A PLOT, YOU KNOW WHAT TO WRITE BUT YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO WRITE IT AND YOU JUST STARE AT THE COMPUTER SCREEN FOR HOURS UNTIL YOU FINALLY CLOSE THE DOCUMENT AND CURSE YOUR ENTIRE EXISTENCE
CAUSE I DO
I kind of want to do a taxonomy of the different kinds of writer’s block. For this particular kind, I recommend writing your intention: “I know I want to open in the middle of a battle, but I’m not sure how that’s going to go down yet. We could start with X or how about…” You may write some dialogue or usable stuff or you may stay in intention mode, but you’ll be WRITING. Get your fingers moving on the keyboard and stop worrying about the gap between what you envision and what you’re putting down on the page. Easier said than done, but there I said it.
