A Quote to Begin the Day…

“A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.

~Thomas Mann

 
Hi Everyone!

I think we have all at some point in our lives dealt with “Writer’s Block.” Whether it was a term paper, a proposal or even a novel. We have struggled with the impending deadline that haunts us as we stare at a blank page. This exhausting moment is yet another reason why I admire authors. Somehow they not only power through, they create a magnificent world for us to live in temporarily.

So tell me, have you ever experienced a Writer’s Block? If so, how did you overcome it? What are your favorite methods for preventing this pesky nuisance?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Enjoy!

Enjoy!
