    I take a step back from what I'm writing and I try to do something active outdoors. Ideas usually come to me when I least expect them. Then after I've spent time away getting some perspective, I write down the ideas that came to me.

    Nope not at all not for me, I think I'm going to write a detailed hub all about it though, thanks for the awesome question.

    I'm not sure writer's block really gets me.  I generally sit down and just write when I am inspired and in the mood to.  I usually try not to force it.

    Sadly I get writer's block often. What I usually do is take a break, or try working on a different writing project. Usually when I have writer's block it's a sign I've been working too hard and too long on one particular project and simply just need a break from it.

    As a writer, I'm driven by that "Nancy Drew" part of my nature.  I love unraveling a good mystery-- so this really kicks in the investigative reporter type part of my writing.

    Often I'm just needing to find a topic that I'm extremely passionate about.  This can't be something that is just luke warm, you've got to be HOT for what you are writing about, otherwise -- why bother!

    The chemtrail issue has kept me blogging now for about a year and a third.  As I have been wrapping up the mystery and finding the truth at the bottom of the research rabbit hole, this has made me feel as though I have said all that I can say on this topic-- and that I must find anther topic to be HOT on.


    Writers Block?  Not so much...
    Finding a subject that I am really passionate about-- that's the ticket!

    Yes I have had this for brief periods of time. What I do to get over it is browse through forums in niches that I'm interested in and this way can usually find someone asking a question that I can write an answer for. Hope this helps.

    I feel I sometimes need a break to reload and get the right words on paper. I don't refer to it as a writer's block.

    I think it's good for any creative proces, whatever you create, to take a step back and just observe the world around you.

    The words, writer's block seem to hold some negative energy to me though you can also refer to it as a sensible pause.
