The Writer's Block
The Writer's Block: 786 Ideas To Jump-start Your Imagination | Jason Rekulak
2 posts | 1 to read
Anxious to write that Great American Novel but don't know where to begin? Help is on the way with our Writer's Block! This guide to beating writer's block comes packaged in the shape of an actual block: 3" x 3" x 3", with 672 pages and more than 200 photographs throughout. Next time you're stuck, just flip open The Writer's Block to any page to find an idea or exercise that will jump-start your imagination. Many of these assignments come straight from the creative writing classes of celebrated novelists like Ethan Canin, Richard Price, Toni Morrison, and Kurt Vonnegut: Joyce Carol Oates explains how she uses running to destroy writer's block. Elmore Leonard describes how he often finds ideas just by reading the newspaper. E. Annie Proulx discusses finding inspiration at garage sales. Isabel Allende tells why she always begins a new novel on January 8th. John Irving explains why he prefers to write the last sentence first. Fresh, fun, and irreverent, The Writer's Block also features advice from contemporary editors and literary agents, lessons from the awful novels of Joan Collins and Robert James Waller, a filmography of movies concerning writer's block (e.g., The Shining, Barton Fink), and countless other surprises. With this chunky little book at your side, you may never experience writer's block again!

I'm so excited about this Writer's Block that I got today. I saw it on a coworker's desk at my school, and I found it on Book Outlet for $1! Lucas and I are going to try to flip through the whole thing and write about each prompt. 🤓✍

Snuck off to a cottage for some relaxation and writing this week. I'm planning to take on #nanowrimo this year and I want to be well-prepared. I've had an account on that website for 10 years now, and I always chicken out and make excuses before it even starts.
