Defeat Writer's Block

Writer's block can be detrimental to the writing process, but it doesn't have to be. I have a few techniques that helped me write Rising Flame, the first book in my series entitled the Jhetan Chronicles.

1.) Write.
Write about anything. If it pops into your mind, write it down even if it makes no sense and has no place in your story. During that jumble of words and situations ideas might just pop into your head that you never even considered before.

2.) Take it easy
It's okay to not write some days or to only write for 30 minutes or to get 50 words down. And who knows, a break might be just what you need to get your creative juices flowing.

3.) Don't think of writing as a task.
When you think of writing as something you get to do rather than something you have to do, it really helps. Writing should be fun.

Rising Flame
Lily’s life changes forever the night a dark stranger shows up at her door. When she has to rely on him to find her missing sister, Lily discovers a secret that could mean life or death. 

Dex travels to Earth after his planet is destroyed. He quickly grows attracted to Lily after she takes him in. But when danger threatens those he loves, Dex must try to stop it before it’s too late.
