  1. I didn’t think we were supposed to talk about things like this, too negative for a start. I was actually ridiculed for doing this, early on in my blogging days, so this post came as a bit of a surprise.
    But we do all have them, don’t we? It’s how we handle them that matters…

    1. I was never very sympathetic about writers who suffered quit days. I tried to be helpful and get them through it but I saw it as weakness, a thing to be powered through.

      Then I had one.

      My friend helped me through it and my attitude changed. I don’t want to dwell in the negatives here but we’d be lying to folks if we pretended this doesn’t happen. So to offset that, we need to emphasize what each of us can expect and how each of us can help somebody get through it.

      1. Yes, I find one turning up quite regularly, but as long as it doesn’t hang about, I can cope. Probably goes with the territory, as most of the artists in history were miserable buggers…

  2. Thanks for mentioning this subject. This happens to me as well. I like the suggestions about how it get through it. Usually just a few words of encouragement from another writer goes a long way as well as ice cream and Netflix of course.
