resources

Here are some of the resources I've found helpful in dealing with writer's block.


Writer's Block Forum

I am trying an experiment here.  I get many notes from writers who feel alone in their block and others from writers who have managed to find ways out.  I love getting these e-mails (even though I am sometimes slow to answer) and it occurred to me that it might be useful if some of you could communicate with each other as well.  To that end I have started a writer's block forum here on the site.  I hope it will be a place where blocked writers can unload a little angst and provide support and encouragement for each other.

So, go for it.  Whine a little, offer support, post your favorite writing quotes, exercises, links and tips or just write a little.  I'll try to keep the spam and meanies out and we'll see how it goes.
