Help me catch back up with our book of the month program and make it awesome! Wouldn't it be awesome if each month we have hundreds of people on this website reading the same book around the same time and chatting about it?!

I am not a professional writer. But I do write scientific papers. A block is an indication that I am not ready to continue. How do I deal with it? I usually drop the topic. Desire to continue usually comes, sooner or later.

For four of the five books I wrote (check out Devin Kerins on Amazon) I actually wrote from the locations I was mentioning in the books. While that is not always feasible, try to switch your location and see how it helps. Often I find it can change the whole tone of the story by getting a new perscpective.
