Have you ever had those moments when things are at a standstill?
Like now when the computer doesn't want to load your post at 7am this morning. heheh.
I'm currently at a standstill, literary standoff (Guns and whips blazing)
I sure have, usually my characters start having parties with the muses and they go away to Jamaica. They'll send me a post card from time to time. Tell me that things are great and they are hoping I'm doing wonderful trying to figure out how to make the story go.
Yeah....I don't like that.
With my latest book, Torrid Teasers 44 it was easy. The story came and bam there you go. But with this new book, tentatively called Shadowed Heart I am wondering where the muses are, why they havent' called recently but most importantly if they are on Jamaica with all my other muses that have suddenly disappeared.
It isn't a writers block, because the ideas and development of the stories are still there and strong as ever. Its only a lull in the design and flow of the novel.
As a writer, what do you do to overcome the limbo?
As a reader, have you ever had moments where things just stall on you? What do you do to get your ideas back on the same track.
I personally would love to know!
Talk to you next month all, the muse just called and she's visiting my home island of Puerto Rico. Slippery little sucker is traveling without me!
