Writer's Pause v. Writer's Block:
I don't think I've ever really experienced writer's block, but more of writers pause--like I'm not sure where to go with my story next.
I'm more easily distracted during these pauses... I read through all archived posts of every blog on my reader... actually look/update my facebook and check my email compulsively.
So my cure for writer's pause is to get out a notebook.
For some reason it feels less permanent to write in my notebook then opening up my WIP on the computer...that sounds stupid. It's true. Maybe it's because I edit and change it when I stick it into my story. Or maybe it's the fact that I can't check my email while writing in my notebook.
Anyway next time you get writer's pause--I'd highly recommend it. Paper is just easier to brainstorm on.
