As I was working through the fourth draft of my memoir the other day I came to a screeching halt trying to work out which direction I should go in.
The more I thought about it the more I got stuck in the mud.
After a considerable time of thinking and reflecting I decided to give it a rest and have a break.
I also gave my colleague a call to get some feedback and she virtually gave me the solution and opened up the path again.
Her feedback was ‘the bleeding obvious’ but I could not see it because I was too involved in my writing.
I’ll probably have more writers blocks before I finish this draft but that’s okay.
When I do I’ll give it a rest and ask for feedback so I can again see the ‘bleeding obvious’.
