Writer’s Block

“Creativity begets creativity! Reading others’ works is fuel for my own creative process. Writer’s block to me simply means a lack of inspiration, and there’s nothing more inspiring than reading other writers’ works. It’s a synergistic process. When I’m feeling at a loss on what or how to write a certain project, I pick up a book or literary journal or two and after reading a few magnificent works of my colleagues, I am inspired to write again. Sometimes, what I write builds upon what others wrote. I suppose one can call this ‘evolutionary co-creation!’”
Victoria G. Smith
