Meet Jill…

Awww… I admit I shouldn’t have posted the previous complaint, but thanks for all the reassurance. Y’all are great! (I’m Texan, it’s a real word here. haha)

As a big thank you, I’ve posted a new excerpt for Average Jill. I know it’s not the excerpt you really want – I’m still going to be a tease on that one *wink, wink* – but I hope you enjoy it anyway…

Meet Jill

Beating the Block (Bonus Content)

So, I don’t know how many of you have ever had writer’s block, but most people don’t realize it’s a literal reaction to anxiety that happens in your brain. I’m sure you’ve experienced something similar when trying to find solutions to difficult issues within your own lives, because when you’re stressed or scared your brain starts shutting down all unnecessary processes and goes into ‘fight or flight’ mode.

For a writer, that means your creative processes start shutting down, and then you panic as you feel yourself shutting down and get more stressed, which causes your brain to focus harder on finding a practical solution (which is contrary to the very nature of imagination) and just creates a vicious cycle of ‘Holy shit, my page is blank… my page is blank!

Truth: I’m terrified of being late on my deadline as I was with my previous book. I want to finish this one on time and have everyone love it. The self-pressure of that creates the stew of horrible writers block, and I’ve struggled to keep on track.

Enter the practical solution: Write ANYTHING that gets the juices flowing. That’s what they tell you, but when you get focused on a project, you forget that one simple exercise. It helps you get your head-space ready to focus, and it has helped me immensely in the last few months.

Anyway, I thought it might be fun to share one of these writing exercises with all of you. It’s a short story, available only here on my website. Anyone who doesn’t enjoy the erotic themes of my writing probably won’t enjoy this either, but those of you that do… Well, you just tell me what you think of The Music Made Me Do It. I know I had fun writing it.

HUGS!

-Summer
