Jazzy: What is your bane? What causes the writer's block for you? What are the things that cause stomps for you story?
Kate: I'm not sure how my writer's block happens. Probably loss of interest in the story and lack of planning before I launch into the "once upon a time"...
Anna: I would say, probably, over-thinking a plot line and then getting bored with the whole story is my biggest bane and writers block. I like to leave myself a little room to dream and write on the spur of the moment or it just doesn't flow from the pen (actually, I prefer pencils) and feels too stiff, not my style.
(this might sound silly...) A big road block for me is when I don't actually have a whole plot for my story. I might have a few good ideas, a cute scene, or a great setting on paper, but I've had to learn not to get so excited and try to write a whole story from them. Recently I've taken to writing down my scene ideas as though it were an excerpt from a story, putting it away in a folder for later use, and then much later changing it to fit wherever I need it.
Holly: What causes writer's block for me is when I get bored of the story or bored writing about the little details that happen between major scenes. Also, trying to keep stories going. I easily lose inspiration on what can happen next. If I don't sit down and write the whole story when have super high inspiration, I generally don't finish it!
Jazzy: Where do you get most inspiration more, a walk in the park, or a picnic in the woods?
Kate: Probably a picnic in the woods. : )
Anna: Yikes! I automatically pictured and described both settings in my head! The way I envision a picnic in the woods (to put it briefly) is sunny with birds singing which I definitely love the most.
Holly: Hmmm.... neither! :) If I had to pick one I would choose a picnic in the woods for sure though!
Kate: My question is how do you help yourself get past writer's block? When the three stories you started aren't working at all what do you do to make yourself be interested? : )
