✉ What To Do With Writer's Block by Hawk MacKinney

Today author takes over our blog to tell us about "What To Do With Writer's Block".

Hawk's latest novel is the Inanna Phantom (, Sage Words Publishing, 240 pages), a Science Fiction novel, book three of  the Cairns of Sainctuarie series.

"INANNA PHANTOM is an intellectually stimulating science fiction. The author uses his medical and science background to flesh out the story, and it kept this reader turning the pages." Barbara Casey, author, literary agent

It’s a question this writer has been asked more times than I can remember.  Ever since the early compulsions with the artistry of writing down the words of my mother tongue and all its dialects, plus the obsession to put it to print – I’ve yet to be comfortable with what it is.  I don’t know.

Delving into a dictionary one faces the simplistic evasion of the semantic circus that neither defines nor explains.  I try to imagine not having the embarrassments of an overabundance of titles, settings, characters, themes – volumes to write that the shortness of time & lifespan will permit.  Maybe those who ask and those of us that have no answer are making it far too complicated.  There are some good writers who produce just one title, and once they’ve worked and toiled it into a publication, they have nothing else to write.  Others often fall into the easy escape of writer’s block used as the excuse to not do what they don’t want to do.

Some basic markers to rattle the spectral cage of THE Block:
Do you want to write more?
If you don’t want to write – DON’T.
It requires keenness of the tools, honest editing, and the obsession.
Which boils down to, “Do you like to write?” If you don’t – DON’T.
I can’t envision THE Block – perhaps it doesn’t exist, at least not for me.  But if you find you have it, or if you’vae discovered you don’t like writing for others, you can practice elegant cursive handwritten entries in your diary & journal.
