Writing under the influence…

IMG_2198-EditWhether you write a book a year or a book a month, most authors write under the influence of something. Some drink coffee and eat chocolate, while others sip a cup of tea and eat scones. It has been said that some of the world's most prolific writers turned to wine or other spirits in order to overcome writer's block. I get a lot of questions about writer's block and for me it's a simple answer. I pray. Whenever I begin a project I begin with prayer and it carries me through. I don't plan any aspect of my books. I start with a simple idea and see where it carries me. So far, prayer has never failed me. So, the next time you're faced with writer's block try it. Writing under the influence will take on a whole new meaning!
