Writing Saturday: X is for … Trying to find an X word

1:00 AM

X is the start of very few words, even when it should like it sound be. Sometimes writing can seem as hard and as difficult as finding a word that starts with the letter X. But keep at it, you will break through, and your book will be worth all the work you put into it.

Many people want to write a book, but few succeed in ever finishing their story, because they’re not prepared to write, even when it’s hard.

What do you do when you hit an extra hard spot in your writing?

  1. I leave it alone for a while and work on something else. If I'm really stuck, I may take it to my mom if she's well enough acquainted with the book. My mom ought to have been an author herself, but ...

  2. You're so creative Sarah! ;D

    Ugh, I hate when I can't think of the word I want to use or when I sit to write and the words seem to fly out of my mind. :/ I had that happen to me only yesterday in fact...I woke up with these great idea's and I sat down to write...and by that time the words had disappeared from memory. *sigh*

    Sometimes I'll *force* myself to write. Writing does not come naturally or easily to me so I'll turn on music to stimulate a writing mood or I'll talk to a friend or my sister and God will help the words to be inspired once more. :)

    Love ya and see you *soon*! ;)
