How to Conquer Writer’s Block: Tip 51


From my good friend Alexis O’Neill, author of the wonderful picture book THE RECESS QUEEN, and many others, proprietor of, and SCBWI leader extraordinaire. Her wisdom and humor are always right on!

“Grab your calendar. For each month, cross out one entire week. That is your “no fly zone.” No hair or doctor appointments. No food shopping. No writers meetings. No laundry. No sojourns to Starbucks. No email (well – maybe for half a day each day). Just one week a month. In your office. At your desk. Writing crap. I guarantee unblockage once a month for twelve months. If not, Ex-Lax might be required.”
