My story took me into some lichenous swamps today, and so I waded through, up to my waist, wondering how the fuck I'm going to get out. It's for this that I both LOVE and HATE writing, particularly pantsing, as I don't plot. Plotters steer away from such unpredictable fibrous masses of worm-like movement. It's sucky to try and navigate your way out, and it's scary, but exciting at the same time. I can't plot because I get bored if I know where I'm going, but I get stuck, too, not sure what turn to take.
The hardest part to get through this is to overcome fear and think. Simply take time to think. Not check news or chat online or do laundry or chase neighbor's chickens , but sit with your own blocked self and think, without any distractions. The solution will come. IT WILL. I have proved it to myself time and time again, and yet I get scared out of my mind when it happens.
How do you get out of being blocked? If you ever do get blocked? (If you answer, I might give you some of my borscht .)
