Lately I’ve been suffering a bit of writer’s block. To deal with this affliction I stopped writing altogether for approximately a month. I started taking my dogs to the dog park every day. Many days I would include either riding my mountain bike or going to the gym for a workout in my new routine. Most evenings I would give my guitar and Crate amp a good workout. I also did a lot of reading, listening to audio books and studying books about writing. Two books that I found very helpful are Writing Fiction for Dummies And On Writing by Stephen King. I found Stephen King’s book to be especially encouraging. I have also starting listening to Last FM again. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of their Grunge station. I loved grunge music during the nineties.
