Writer’s Block

So, I have writer’s block. But I don’t have writer’s block.

Yep, I do and don’t have writer’s block. Confusing, right?

If you gave me a photo or a word, I’d probably come up with a story for it. However, this is the month that I’m supposed to be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo, and my initial attempts were diffused by my getting sick so that was 2 weeks down the drain.

I have been spending most of today trying to come up with an idea for a romantic comedy.

And I am uninspired. I don’t know if my comedy has left me or my romantic has left me or if I just need a photo. πŸ˜‰

It’s not writer’s block. It’s idea block. It’s romantic comedy block. It’s cell block. Hmm.

Wanted: Any ideas for a romantic comedy. Writer is willing and able to write…if you paint her a picture.

  1. That is so frustrating. Often, when I’m trying to work on a project, my best ideas come when I put it down and work on something else. Then, I get frustrated again, because now I’m trying to work on the other project. Ahh! If we didn’t like to be tormented by our own minds, we’d do something less creative.

  2. Oh, Sascha, you can do this! You were just in the ER. Think of all the ways you could meet a man. How about, the nurse who drained your abscess was a MAN–a big hunky man. He’s seen her at her worst and grossest (is that a word)–draining puss! The heroine is attracted to him, but can’t get over that he’s a nurse and not a doctor (thus an internal conflict). Or something else about him that creates ambivalence. The nurse is also attracted to his patient and next day shows up at her place with soup. Now, what about our heroine gives him pause? She has 6 cats? A tattoo? She’s a lawyer? Or maybe she meets 2 men in the ER and needs to decide. Easy-peasy. Take your own experiences and turn them into a romance. Silly girl!

    • This is great. But you’ve also showed me that there’s a part of my brain right now that seems to be switched off. Damn switch! Where did it go? I do like this idea. Thanks for the support, Maggie! πŸ™‚


  3. It’s a tough one, Sascha. Firstly, what is romance, what is writers block, and what about alligators? Actually I’m trying to think of something for you, but all that’s coming up is alligators. I may have alligator block.

    Apart from being useless, I do know that with the (kind of) romances I’ve sold, I didn’t set about writing a romance, it was another story, and it just happened. Maybe it’s better that way. Sorry, that’s all I’ve got.
