Dealing with the blank page

There is nothing as intimidating as writer's block.

Rick, do you mean you get blocked at times?

Oh, yeah, baby, I get blocked and I've spent the last several weeks banging my head against the dreaded blank screen. It happens to me once in a while, especially after I've finished a novel. It's happened before and it will happen again.

So what do you do?

Well, nothing beats sitting down and just writing something, some scene, some story, anything. Many times it's crap and you know it's crap but it helps to get the juices flowing.

Some say it's because of the death of my mom that's got me all messed up, but I was blocked before she passed so I can't use that excuse.

All I know is last night I sat down with the determination to start #3 of the Eastlander Chronicles and lo, it happened. All is back on track with Rick now.

By the way, The next Logan novel should be out in 2015. HINDSIGHT is a good one and I can't wait for you to read it.

Peace and love
