I've been working on book two for a while but it's been a bit of a struggle. I know the broad outline of the story and i'd managed to complete chapter one but then it all ground to a halt. Partly that wasn't a problem as i was editing book one and getting it on to Kindle, but there was a real pressure there.
i read this in The Musings of DS Taylor today http://www.dstaylor.me/?p=111
If you don’t spend your days either writing, or thinking about writing, don’t tell me you want to be an author.
He also said a lot of other useful stuff in this post. If you're a writer yourself, have a read.
For the last few weeks i've spent a lot of time thinking about publishing and marketting and selling book one, but hardly at all about the important stuff. Writing. Last night i spent a long time thinking about how to get the team out of the conundrum i'd put them in. By morning i had an outline for chapters 2, 3 and probably 4.
I suspect that i didn't actually have writers block, i just needed a rest. Now I'm back in the grove. Hurrah!
