When the Words Won't Come

I'm sure we've all experience writer's block, that time when the words won't come and we sit at the computer fiddling with the keys or tapping a pencil on a note pad. This issue has been a real problem for me lately. Looking back to the times I was most prolific, I realize a change of scenery was the key to spuring my muse. Now I carry a notepad and when I have to wait at the doctor's office, or anywhere else, I write. When I get home, I transfer my notes to my manuscript.

While on vacation, sitting in the back seat of the car, watching the scenery from the windows, I rapidly filled the pages of my tablet. I think the next time the words won't come, I'll have my husband take me for a drive. He can groove on the scenery and I can write.

What about you? What spurs your muse?

Thanks for reading and writing!

Book Signing in Bastrop

Fleeta Cunningham, my fellow cruise friend and The Wild Rose Press author invited me to join several local authors for the Bastrop Public Library's book signing. When I looked on the looked on the library's website it listed the event as Author Buffet. I wondered if they were serving a meal so call the library to ask. Their answer was, "No, you authors are the buffet."

Here we all are. From left to right - Diana Castilleja, Fleeta Cunningham, Tiffany Green and her father and fellow author James Schubert, Linda LaRoque, and Deidra Holly.

Each author was given the opportunity to speak. You know how we authors like to talk about our books and writing.

Thank you to the Friends of the Library at Bastrop Public Library for putting this event together.

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in my monthly ebook drawing.

Happy Reading and Writing!
