Techniques for Dealing with Writers Block

■ Some writers say that just writing anything, even copying a page word for word out of a book or magazine, is one way that they get back into the groove of writing.

■ Some monologists will go see another monologist's or playwright's work. They say that just being in a theater and seeing good material can be quite inspiring.

■ Keeping a pad around to jot down a thought or line of dialogue can also be a helpful aid during writer's block. One strong thought or image or some great line of dialogue can be just the trigger to get started.

■ When working on a piece, some monologists purposely end each day's work in the middle of a sentence or thought. When they return the next day, they can pick up the thread of where they left off and not have to look at an empty page.
