A creative writing instructor once told me that the cause of writer’s block is that the story has no plan. The characters have no goals. The writer doesn’t have a clear idea where the story is going.
Listening to my daughter, I think that’s right. She recently went in a different direction and the pieces to her story seemed to fall into place. She’s got her storyboard all completed and up on the wall and she’s off and running again. I can’t wait to read her story!
I’m going to follow her example and restart my own story. I’ve only been working on it for years, and keep getting stuck.
I’ve found a storyboard type software since I’m a little short on wall space 😉 But, it can’t hurt to re-start the story, at this point, since I may actually finish it sometime. I’ll have to keep bugging Nichole for advise.
Wish me luck!
