  • Mood: Frustrated
Hello everyone,
I can never decide what to do when I'm stuck in my writing, and I guess there's really only a few options. 

1.) Keep writing anyway, even if it's terrible and going in circles. Eventually you'll get out of it.
2.) Stop writing and think it out and don't start again until you've nailed it.
3.) Start writing something else completely unrelated.

Is doing the third option a cop out?  Because that's what I want to do, and I wonder if that's just going to put me further back in the end.

What do YOU do when you're in this spot? It's not exactly writer's block since you can still write, but your plot hole has become a plot canyon and you don't know what to do...

Of the many kinds of art that call DA home, I am a producer of the written variety. 99% of what you find on my page is of the written word, but I also do some photography and costuming. Enjoy and let me know what you think. :)

Most of what I post are vignettes or just bits of free-writing, though there are several completed short stories. I love feedback, even if these aren't pieces I'm going to continue working with. Feedback helps instill good habits. If I've posted a piece on here, it's something I don't intend to publish, but that said, my work is my property. You wouldn't want me to steal your things; I expect you not to steal mine. Friends? Friends.

What you should know about me:
Loves dogs, the color red, thunderstorms, roses, Pokemon cards, Chipotle, sewing
Currently obsessed with The Hunger Games
Has Bachelors in English and theater arts
Happily taken by a wonderful artist ♥ Check him out HERE
