Welcome to the place where I rant, rave and discuss books, writing, the town of Cobourg Ontario and anything else that strikes my fancy.

When nothing seems to stick...
No ideas for a novel seem to be sticking. Does anyone else ever have this issue? Is there a super glue for writer's out there that I haven't heard about? If I don't stick to a novel idea and theme, I'm afraid one won't be written (well duh!). Is this what they call "writer's block" or is it "writer's wall" because the ideas seem to pile on top of each other though none of them come to completion. My thoughts run crazily into each other and I can't seem to focus on one. Oh how I long for a nice warm sunny day to walk along the beach and be alone with my brainstorming little mind.
Any ideas on how to get past this?
For now i'm just jotting down any and all ideas that come to mind that mean something to me...
In desperation, I move on towards the glimmer of light I call hope... or madness ;)
