This post would be the continuation of Q&A session with the Sexy Six team and in case you’ve missed the 9th post, here is the link to it.
It’s a pleasure to interview the six sexy authors from the Sexy Six team. A warm welcome to our blog and we hope that you’ve enjoyed the interview session with us.
We’ve asked them a few questions and the answers for each question from all six of them will be published as a series. Let’s check out question #10
When you hit a wall, how do you break through?
I’ll let you know when it happens.
I never have experienced a wall. Not in 35 novels.Time is the only blocker I struggle with.
It used to really bother me and stress me out. I found that the more I relax and wait until my characters speak to me, the better off I am. Sometimes, something as simple as hearing a song on the radio will inspire me and make the character speak.
Also, I’ve been known to be inspired with a glass of wine in hand (see picture below)
I do timed writing sprints…or I do a writing retreat day with a writing buddy or three 😊
Sometimes, I just have to walk away and go do something completely different. I’ve also solved a lot of plot riddles while in the car on a long drive.
Generally, the only time I hit a wall with a story is in the beginning while trying to develop it. If I try too hard, the idea for a book just won’t come to me. I just can’t force the idea to come. I have to slow down, take a deep breath, and the inspiration will come to me.
