FREE eBook Excerpt – 7 Steps to Busting Writer’s Block

An e-book excerpt from the soon to be published book Anatomy of a Premise Line: How to Master Premise and Story Development for Writing Success by Jeff Lyons.

7 Steps to Busting Writer’s Block

There are scores of books in the marketplace telling you how to handle writer’s block, but none of them tell you the one true fact about writer’s block that every writer needs to know: i.e., writer’s block is 99.9% smoke and .1% substance. This .1% is the only part you can do anything about, and that is the good news.

Writes can get blocked, but the cause and the solution are so basic, so fundamental—and so easily fixed—that all books on writer’s block miss the point and only drone on about the myth and smoke and mirrors that so many writers have bought into regarding this crazy idea. This simple e-book busts the myth of writer’s block once and for all, and then gives you an easy-to-follow and proven method for busting through the only legitimate instance when writers can get blocked.

In this book you will learn:

  • the origins of the myth of writer’s block,
  • the one real instance where a writer might get blocked,
  • the only single solution to breaking that one real blockage,
  • and a 7-step process for busting writer’s block once and for all.

Read this ebook and free yourself from the myth and the baggage of writer’s block forever.
