Do I get writer’s block?

As many of you already know, apart from blogging I am an author. The short answer to that is yes I do get writer’s block from time to time. Taking into consideration that I loved writing words from the time I learnt my ABC’s. I like to say that writing is in my DNA. However, I do still get blocks like every writer in my opinion. The most trick I use is the three w’s who, when and where. Who is the character that I’m creating or talking about, are they a hero or a monster, are they rich or poor? In other words, it helps you picture your character in your head. When is the story happening in the past, now or future? This question will also guide you in what ‘ tense,’ you are going to write in. Where is everything happening? Is it happening on earth or space or in history? Don’t be scared to ask questions in your head about your story or whatever you’re creating. If you tried all this and still have a blank mind, you need to put your head on something else. Don’t force it; it will come to you. As for my second book, I’m taking a break due to surgery and recovery. I’ll get back on it as my health will allow it.
