Take a step back

The most often heard advice about writer’s block (at least from my inexperience) are quite contradictory.

One stance is to keep writing, even if it’s crap, and eventually the block will break. The other stance is to take a break from the work and either work on a different piece or find some other project to give yourself time to breathe and work out the problem in your head.

After a measly 100 words of progress yesterday, I think I’m going to take the latter advice. I don’t like writing crap, even if it’s supposedly to help the good stuff flow better.

So today it’s on to either drawing or some poetry projects I have in the works.
