Writer’s block refers to not being able to think of where to go next in the plot. In the movies the blocked writer goes for long walks, meets with his agent and talks about the block. He does everything, but write because he is stymied by the next paragraph. I asked Mellanie Szereto, popular Siren author, what she did when she hit a difficult point in her story. Her response was that she’d work on a different story. At that time, she had almost eleven stories in progress. This worked out well because she signed a contract to produce eight stories.
