Pressed to write, but can't? Have you slowed to a crawl, fallen into a hole, or hit a wall lately?
Or perhaps your definition of writer's block is when your imaginary friends won't talk to you, much less come out and play.
Call it what you will, it happens to all of us at one time or another. That's when we need a jolt. Something to knock us out of our rut, shift our thinking, and jumpstart new ideas. For some of us that involves an adrenaline-inducing activity such as jumping out of an airplane. But for others, something simple can do the trick, too.
Whether your writer's block is a dead-in-the-water, pounding-your-head-against-a-wall-for-months stoppage or merely a daily hiccup when you first sit down to write, we feel your pain and have discovered a few things to get you rolling again. For our first offering we figured there was nothing better to help push your writer's block aside than a cup of really good coffee - especially one that helps teach kids to read.
