Afternoon Folks,

Okay, fellow writers, be honest. When you get fed up with your characters, admit that you fantasize about writing them jumping off a cliff...or perhaps imagine them getting zapped by lightning.

We all deal with writer's block, frustration and characters who don't want to do what they're told. How does an author let off steam?

Here's your chance to find out...

I've been known to go "on hiatus" from a story. If I'm getting to a point where something is annoying me to no end, I take a break--or I focus on another project. Reading has also been a good escape for me.

I also tell people about my frustration--sometimes talking out a problem helps.

So what's you method?

Have A Wild Wednesday!

I used to take huge breaks while writing a story, but now I'm pretty good about sticking w/ a story until I'm done (albeit cranky)... and then take a break afterward.

So your characters survive? You don't throw 'em off the nearest cliff? Good for you! :-) (I don't either, but sometimes it seems like a great idea). LOL
