Help! My muse has stage fright!
Ok I really need to know if I'm the only one this happens to? I know what needs to happen in a story and I know what I want to happen. Yet every time I sit down to write it I draw a blank. That little black blinking cursor sits mocking me. It taunts me to type. But it's like my muse has stage fright, we're find during brainstorming, but when the time comes to put it to paper/ computer screen, she freezes. I have three works in progress and one rewrite, all I really want to finish yet can't because my brain just seizes up when I try. Can anyone offer up some advice as to how to get over this? I've tried all my usually tricks and nothing helps.
