Friday Fictioneers: Writer’s Block




(Currently I am writing a book called After The Fishing Trip which is based on a previous Friday Fictioneers story I wrote called Fishing Trip (I know highly original! :-)) After I’m finished it if anyone would like a free copy to review or just enjoy (or not! :-)), I’ll put up my e-mail so you request a copy if you’re part of Friday Fictioneers and you’d like to read it. It was what I wanted to do with Black Coat too but things went wrong (in short, I forgot to back up the copy on my computer. Silly thing to do, I know! :-)) So my head is kind of in that zone of After The Fishing Trip at the moment and this story is from the perspective of one of four main characters Karl who is a budding writer and is a small section from the book. Hope you like it. :-))


Fishing Trip:


Writer’s Block


It was the afternoon. I was hard at work with my book. Well if hard at work means three sentences. Sometimes you just don’t know what to write. I was seeing shady dealings going on in a boarded-up house in my dreams. Should I have a body in an old property of the rich family? How exactly does my protagonist find it? What would Mitch write? He would know what to write. Nate doesn’t give him enough credit. He should probably leave him but he won’t.

Anyways, I could have my protagonist knocked out in the place. I don’t know.


My book Black Coat based on a previous Friday Fictioneers prompt is available at:

    Is that writer’s block? Or is if having too many ideas?

  2. Dear Lisa,

    The writer’s dilemma for certain. The writer needs to rope herself into submission. Nicely done.

    I imagine one can have too many ideas and need to do some cutting back πŸ˜‰

    Look at the bright side. There is nothing worse than being stuck whether it’s a block or too many forks in the road, but when you breakthrough and your mind runs free, it’s the greatest feeling there is. I don’t think I’ve experienced a high like that. When everything’s flowing and the ideas are pouring out, and your fingers can’t keep up with your brain, and the typos are pilling up because you can’t stop to fix them, and the next person to interrupt you is going to get something thrown at them. Ecstacy! I wish I could live in that zone.

    And readers think writers block comes from not having anything in your head. For me, it’s a field chock full of plot bunnies that never connect.

  6. draliman says:

    The possibilities are endless! The block is coming from not knowing which idea to go with, I reckon πŸ™‚

    Haha a cute story

    Haha the three sentence block and they usually aren’t even good sentences. I think any serious writer has faced this…
