Writer’s Block; or, How to Keep Going!

It’s that bit of any writing. The Last Little Bit. I have about 10,000 words left to write. Comparatively speaking, I suppose it’s the conclusion of an essay. Plus a little bit of bolstering the arguments made earlier on.


No reason; I just quite like this photo. I like bees.

But it’s still not nearly as easy to write as the beginning 10,000 words. See, that’s what I’m good at. I can begin a story, but it’s the keeping going that I have problems with, and having a satisfactory ending. Even if I know exactly how I want it to end. It’s the expression on paper (or computer) of it that I have problems with. So I have lots of story-beginnings, and lots of story-plans. But not so many complete stories.

But it’s the last few days of the challenge. I’ve made it this far, I can press onwards. Especially as I’ll have no time to do so in December. The looming deadline. The focused mind. No distractions.


So. To break the Writer’s Block. The answer to this comes from Katie.

Instructions, should you find yourself with Writer’s Block:

Find one equally large block of chocolate and hit the Writer’s Block with it until it breaks into lots of tiny pieces. While it is thus distracted, sneak around behind it.

Mwa-ha! You have defeated the Writer’s Block! Have a cup of tea and eat the chocolate.
