BEATING WRITERS BLOCK with Stant Litore
“Writer’s block” actually can cover a range of habits and ways of getting stuck. Maybe you’re a perfectionist, or maybe you’re the artist looking at a first draft that feels like a betrayal of the original vision. Maybe you’re stuck in the middle of the plot. Maybe you just can’t get that one scene written. We’ll cover several of the most common blocks and an array of practical strategies for getting over, under, around, or through them.
