How to Cure Writer’s Block

Well, that’s one way to do it.

I’m starting a novel next month– anyone wanna word war? (SANS grasshopper!! We can decide on a different punishment. :D)

    Well, that’ll get me to write… excellent video, thanks for sharing. And I will Word War you sometime. I promise.

  2. Ewwww. And he kept eating them! Lol. I will totally word war with you, all August (or at least the beginning) long. As long as there are no grasshoppers involved.

      When I first saw your comment I had a panic attack–I’d completely forgotten about the August novel (I’d written this post a while ago for a rainy day). Two days to the start and I STILL have no idea what I’m going to write on Monday 😀 I’ll figure something out though. It’ll be fun.

      • I’m glad I reminded you then! And I know you’ll think of a great idea. Just remember, killing characters off is a good thing. Now I have to go figure out what my MC’s brother is going to be named because I will not name another character Adam. Darn all those red A’s XD

        But, as I learned the hard way from my post-apocalyptic attempt last year, killing ALL the characters off in the BEGINNING of the novel isn’t good, either. Because then you have precious little to actually write about.

        IKR!! I love A names– dunno why. Ashleigh, Aaliyah, Alexander, etc….

  3. Haha! No, that’s not a good thing. Just throw in a romance and kill off the love interest. Then have the love interest get really angry and start killing people. And I’ll stop now before I get a really great idea and want to write that instead of what I already have planned 😀

    Haha, me too! I use them way to much!

      Ooh, sounds like you’ve got some good ideas >:D I love a good psychotic ex-lover subplot.

      Maybe it’s just because we’re lazy, and when we go to to search for protagonists’ monikers, we stop on the first page?
      Just speculation. We may never know.
