Advice to Writers: Joyce Carol Oates

Certain Subjects Just Need Time

I don’t think that writer’s block exists really. I think that when you’re trying to do something prematurely, it just won’t come. Certain subjects just need time. . . . You’ve got to wait before you write about them.
-JOYCE CAROL OATES

It's hard to deal with writers block. A lot of advice from my favorite authors is to just sit you butt in that chair and write. This quote is saying something. Writer's block might not really exist, the story will come, it depends on the certain subject you are writing it can be difficult for you to write it. What helps me when I am having a hard time figuring out what I want to put into the story next I end up writing a whole new story with characters and then the creative juices begin to flow I soon get inspiration to continue where I left off in my other novel.
