October 2- November 1, Fee: Most of us have struggled with writers block or its kinder, gentler cousin aversion to writing at least once in our writing careers.
Blocks to creativity develop for several reasons, but some of the most common are: A crisis of confidence: Being out of the story or out of the loop of writing: Being out of step with our characters: I understand why you think you need me to do it, but no way, no how, for no amount of money am I going to do it.
