Happy New Year! Goodbye Writers’ Block

imageHere it is, a brand new year, bright and shiny, waiting to unfold. And I am stuck. I am a writer who has not written a word for over a year, except for Facebook posts. Last year was bad for me as far as my writing life is concerned. My agent died suddenly, his files were found to be…well, missing is one way to put it. So there was no way to trace where my two manuscripts which I thought were being looked at actually were. This stopped me cold. I had no idea how to continue. I have had an agent for twenty years, this one for 15 of those years and the shock paralyzed me.

But this is a new year. Surely a new wave of energy will push me back to work. And I am reading Lev Rafael’s book called Writers Block is Bunk. So maybe I will discover that he is right. One thing I have decided is that if nothing else, I will blog with more consistency, especially about the concerts, operas and ballets I attend here and abroad.

So here’s to the new year. May it continue bright and shiny, and full of words!

About Caro Soles

Writer in several genres, lover of dachshunds and opera, with some ballet thrown in for good measure. I founded the Bloody Words Mystery Conference, which ran for 14 years as well as the Bony Blithe Award for Canadian Light Mysteries, but that, too, has come to an end. My latest novel is The River District, a look at the seamy side of Merculian.

  1. Best of luck with your writing this year. I’m sorry to hear about your agent. Sometimes a break from writing is a good thing and you can come back and be stronger and more imaginative.
