Book Tour - Diamonds In The Rough by Vogue

Diamonds are a girl's best friend right?  Please welcome my guest today,  Vogue,  author of Diamonds in the Rough.  Welcome Vogue and thank you so much for stopping in.  Today Vogue discusses writer's block.

Tackling the Roadblock

A frequently asked question that most authors get is:

What do you do when you have writer’s block?

Well, there is never a correct answer for this question because it all depends on the person. There are some authors who may try to write through the block while others may take a break.

Personally, I choose not to write. I feel as if I come up with the worst material only because I feel obligated to put something on paper. It is then that I realize that just because I am an author, it doesn’t mean that I have to write daily. My personal advice to all published and aspiring authors is this: Write only when you feel inspired.

It is never good to force yourself to do something that you don’t want to do. Just think; the break might be good for you. You might come up with new ideas for the plot or even a new character.

A lot of times we view writer’s block as something that is negative, but maybe it isn’t. Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise. Here’s an exercise that I recommend for all writers. Even if you only do it once, the next time you experience writer’s block, simply stop writing. Wait a few days or even a few hours and revisit the story. See if you come up with something more exciting and intense then what you wrote last! Feel free to share the results!

Vogue loves to hear from her readers and would love to hear from you too.  You can visit her online at www.simplyvogue.net or find her on Facebook.   She is also on virtual book tour so leave her a comment for your chance to win a copy of this fantastic book.
