I had what is considered writer’s block about half way through Music Of Souls and it scared the crap out of me. I thought “That’s it, I’m done, a dismal failure.” I thought that even if I could write again, I had lost the excitement and fervor. Writing would just be hard work from now on. I was wrong. My passion kicked in a few days later, even stronger than before. I have decided, I don’t like the term “Writer’s block”. For me, it is inaccurate, I will use the term “Writer’s regrouping” because that is what I personally need to do from time to time. It doesn’t scare me anymore. I just give myself the time I need, usually writing or reading something else or editing, and sure enough the ideas come and I get back into the groove.
