So I thought since I have interviewed hundreds of authors over the years on this blog, that you would enjoy hearing me answer some of the questions I have posed to them over the years.
Each week I will answer one or two questions, if you want you can leave your own questions for me in the comments and I will try and answer them in a future blog post!

Any tips on how to get through the dreaded writer’s block?
After the two year hiatus the only thing I could do was write little bits. By little bits I mean 50 words at a time if that. So I took what I could get. 50 here, 100 there. It started to add up. Then I threw myself into impossible deadlines (yes I totally threw myself under the bus) and forced myself to get moving again. While I still suffer some flow issues it is not nearly as bad as it has been in the past.
I think the biggest thing is to start small and keep plugging away. Even if the 50 words you get down are crap at least they are a start and something you can work with later on. Also dont get down on yourself. You put too much pressure on yourself (unless you are like me and live in a virtual pressure cooker) and you could stifle the muse. So let your brain work at the pace it needs to. A single word is way better than none.
