Cure for Writer’s Block – #011
You Can’t Get What You Want
The iPhone 6 craze got me thinking about how to Cure Writer’s Block. Think of something that you, someone you know, or your character really wants and needs. Have that image in your mind? How badly does the person want it? What are they willing to do to get it? Why do they need it?
Now, imagine that they can’t get it. There either are no more, or they have to wait three months to get their hands on it. What does this do to the person? How do they feel? What are they willing to do to get it faster? Will they get it at all?
When thinking about this Cure for Writer’s Block, try to imagine how each of these questions impacts the person, and write from there.
(And, I already got my new iPhone and I love it!)
