#Holiday - Happy Encourage a Young Writer Day!

Ansley Ansley
Okay, okay---technically it's for the youngesters...but this is an adult site and I feel it applies here! So let's twist the meaning of "young" writer into something that means "budding" or "new", not necessarily something defined by the number of years the writer has been on the planet.



Anyone and everyone who has ever tried to get their feet wet in the world of writing and publishing knows that it's not what you write about, so much as how you write it! That's quite possibly one of the most frustrating aspects of breaking into the business, your manuscript could be canned over a single word choice. It's one of those things that can make you give up writing forever, but don't lose heart! You will get there!

New Writers: Share your roadblocks in your writing, let us help you overcome them and get those words flowing again! Some of the most prolific writers have been turned down time and again, and only with determination and drive were they able to persevere!

Experienced Writers: Share how you have overcome roadblocks in your own writings, even if you've never been published and write for yourself!

I have always wanted to become a published writer. I've started a ton of books and never finish them because I never think they are good enough. I've got one going that sorta follows what I went through in the last few months but I'm not sure if it's interesting to anyone else!

You could try sharing little snips of it at the Eden Lit Club and we would be happy to give you an opinion about whether it's an interesting subject. All we ask is that you submit complete works not a story line, so a piece of the work would be great but an overview of the book idea not so much.
We always have an open topic available for just this sort of writing.

Overcoming writers block for me can be as simple as sitting down and writing about what it's like to have a writers block. If you just keep writing usually you will suddenly make a connectin and find the block dissolving.
Also I have found that when writing a longer work reorganizing or picking a spot where it looks like the work has come to an end and reworking that can help get rid of the block. Sometimes what feels like a block is merely a wrong turn in plot.
Redesigning your initial outline to fit the twists and turns a story will take is another great way of pushing past stumbling blocks. Sometimes stories take on a life of thier own and seem to tell themselves and sometimes you have to wrestle with them to make them mind.

What happens if you get writers block before you even start writing! lol I really want to write something, but I have no idea where to start. I feel like I should just let it flow, but usually when I do that, it doesn't make any sense...
