The Black Walls of Writer's Block
Then, I tried something I've never done. Switching characters. I decided to do a few chapters in the head of my love interest, and voila! Renewed interest. I've found a much more exciting plot and even a couple of subplots too. I know that no two writers write the same, but I thought I would share in case you've hit a wall. My writing life is full of frustrating, scary, brick walls, and I find that they are the most prevalent in the first five to ten thousand pages.
What about you? What do you do to overcome and conquer? Let's help each other.
