Other discussion

Connie said that she is dealing with Writer’s Block and the group discussed ways to overcome it.

Some of the suggestions were

  • Write down your motivation for writing
  • Use a character notebook to describe each character’s background. Have as much setting information as possible
  • Record questions about present work in a journal
  • Decide in the work should be a short story instead of full length novel
  • Read a novel from the same genre
