It's not often I sit staring at a blank screen when it's time to blog. While writing, yes. Constantly. But blogging never takes long.
Well, almost never. Because I've been staring for ever so long this morning, and this is all I've come up with.
Which leads to an excellent topic (I hope). What do you do when the Blank Screen looms? When thoughts have congealed, immobile, and inspiration seems to have died?
And what do you do when this sad state of affairs happens when you're writing to a deadline?
I used to fear just that -- writerly constipation with a looming deadline. I'm all over my self-imposed deadlines and, as yet, haven't missed a single one. But they are, in the end, SELF-imposed. The world will not cease to revolve if I don't meet them.
So today, share your methods for breaking through the blankness. Or a fuzzy-warm story of how you successfully overcame a particular bit of stuckage. Or a list of appropriate foods to consume while one is summarily stuck.
As always, I'm all ears!
