I’ve begrudgingly joined TikTok. To see my “teenage dirt bag” photos, check out my profile, same handle as all my socials: @rhymeswithfry.

Anyone have any tips on how to get rid of writer's block? Asking for a friend.... SMH

@rhymeswithfry  At least you're still getting great ideas. You just need some post-its or sticky notes to jot them down for later during class. The kids won't know whether it's school related or not lol. I hear you. I try to do as little work at home as I can to try and keep that work/home separation stronger, but it doesn't always work out.

@Voyageavecmoi Thank you for those suggestions! I also hope this block is short-lived. Honestly, I think it’s mostly just my mind transitioning from summer-mode to school year-mode. I feel like every time I have a great idea, I’m with students, and then when I sit down for writing-time I start thinking about lessons or other to-dos… :/. Oh well…

@rhymeswithfry  Sometimes I get stuck because the scene goals aren't clear enough to me (might not be a problem you run into as a planner) so stopping to reflect or write out how the characters will change by this scene and how it moves the plot forward can help. It usually gets me out of dialogue ruts. Sometimes I'll also skip ahead and then jump back to fill in the missing pieces pacing-wise.
            
            Other times, I'll read stories in the genre I'm writing and sometimes it sparks ideas from certain situations and how I would write those moments differently or how my characters would react in that scenario. 
            
            Ooh, and on the music theme suggestion, the Game of Thrones soundtrack always makes writing feel epic or songs by Hans Zimmer.
            
            Hope the writer's block is short-lived.

Happy Wednesday! So many milestones to share!
          
          Thank you for 500 followers! Also, just marked All That and a Bag of Chips COMPLETE right as it crossed 1,000 reads!
          
          On a more personal note, I'm going out of town this weekend to celebrate my 40TH BIRTHDAY, so I probably won't get too much writing done. I promise that Against All Gods will begin regular updates again soon!

I know it's Friday, but I don't have a chapter of Against All Gods to post. Instead, I have another chapter of All That and a Bag of Chips. IT'S SO CLOSE TO BEING FINISHED!!! 30 down... 5 to go :D

Every time I click "edit" on All That and a Bag of Chips I get the message that my story is sooooo close to being eligible for the Watty's. So, even though I only started it five weeks ago, I'm doing my best to wrap it up this week or next. 
          
          Chapter 27 was just posted and it's a GOOD one, especially if you like romantic tension AND drama! Can't wait to hear what you think!

@Saber5726 Yeah, ftm books on Wattpad seem to be pretty heavily skewed towards mxm romance. I’m not sure if I’ve ever found an ftm x female romance on here, besides what I’ve written. (Of my completed stories, Marin’s Fire and Transylvania have romantic sub-plots). Off Wattpad, I’d recommend checking out Confessions of the Fox by Jordy Rosenberg or Stay Gold by Tobly McSmith. Sorry I can’t be more helpful! But, I started writing my books because the stories I wanted to read didn’t exist. So, you could always write your own. And if you do, I’d love to read it!!!

Happy Wattpad birthday to me! 
          
          I downloaded the Wattpad app and signed up for an account on July 21, 2018, having very little idea what this site was. All I had was a partially-finished manuscript and no motivation to write. Today I have several completed novels and novellas and two works-in-progress that I am very excited about. Plus, I have made friends and found a community that I am enormously grateful for. Wattpad has given me the drive and the confidence to pursue writing seriously, and has changed my life for the better. Thank you to everyone who has read my works and helped me on this journey!!!  :D
