I'm currently revising my second novel with my co-author and friend Melonie. For the last three days I've been staring at a chapter that has been giving us some trouble. I've made no headway in the chapter and I've had a few ideas twirl around but then vanish like chocolate in a house full of women. I've finally decided that my creativity is blocked or backed-up, so to speak. :) So I've decided to grease the wheels by reading. Tomorrow I'm going to go try a bakery that has gluten free cupcakes, then take the kids and my friend to the beach and read. I'm not going to think about the plot problems for a full twenty four hours and more importantly I'm not going to feel guilty about it. I know that that plan will help my creativity be more- er...regular and cure my creative constipation. I know I'm not the only writer with this problem, so my question is, what do you guys do to get past your creative blocks?
