Cures for Writer’s Block

One of the many questions I get as an author is how I conquer the dreaded writer’s block. Well, that’s easy. I panic! No, wait … that’s not the correct answer. Um…stay calm. Always. Stay. Calm.

So, in honor of those who ask this question and any burgeoning authors reading this who also suffer from this author malady, here is my advice, no prescription required:

1.)    Stare into the eyes of your cat (or dog, or canary, or chinchilla, or neighbor’s hamster), hoping their unique insight about life teleports itself into your brain.

2.)    Let your children have your computer for a while. Maybe, just maybe, out of all the gibberish scrawling across the computer screen, there will be one gem, one word to keep you from falling into the dark abyss.

3.)    Watch The Great British Baking Show. If your saliva starts flowing, it should jumpstart your imagination into flowing as well.

4.)    Go to Wal-Mart. People-watching is a beautiful thing. Need I say more?

5.)    Leave your computer and a good book such as Pride and Prejudice alone in a candlelit room for several minutes. They just might produce some attractive offspring you can use to get over the writing hump.

6.)    Print out copies of your useless pages and rub your computer’s screen in them, yelling, “Look what you just did, you naughty thing!”

7.)    Create a fun drinking game. Every time you press the backspace button you take a shot of your favorite beverage. By the time you are done, you’ll either be as brilliant as Ernest Hemmingway or you’ll be selling your manuscript to three-year-olds who can’t read anyway.

Sadly, I’ve tried almost all these over-the-counter methods, and here’s to hoping I never resort to #7. But if I do, who’s willing to join me?

Eat a crumpet. Check. Say “bloody hell” in an English pub. Check. Solve three murders and fall in love? Definitely not on the list. But when England dishes up murder, even an American girl knows it’s time to channel her inner Agatha Christie.

American Eliza Darcy travels to Merry Old England to partake in a Darcy/Bennet family reunion for one reason: to solve the estrangement between her father and uncle. Not long after Eliza’s arrival and exploration of the vast estate of her ancestors, a dead body surfaces. Murder and mayhem replace afternoon teas and flirting with her British heartthrob. Eliza has every intention of keeping her snoot out of official Scotland Yard business, but when clues to the murder begin to merge with her investigation into her family’s rift, her inner wannabe sleuth self-activates.

With the help of her batty great-aunt and the sexy Heath Tilney, Eliza hurries to untangle the web of lies and secrets. As corpses start to pile up faster than the clues, Eliza fears the estate’s family graveyard will swallow another body: hers.

About Jessica Berg

Jessica Berg, a child of the Dakotas and the prairie, grew up amongst hard-working men and women and learned at an early early age to “put some effort into it.” Following that wise adage, she has put effort into teaching high school English for over a decade, being a mother to four children (she finds herself surprised at this number, too), basking in the love of her husband of more than fifteen years and losing herself in the imaginary worlds she creates.
