What is your method for overcoming writer’s block?

I think writer’s block is a way the brain has of telling you you’ve taken a false step. I think you need to wait a day or two, then start reading your work from the beginning, and the false step should become apparent.

What are your favorite or most helpful writing prompts?

I’m not sure what you are referring to as a writing prompt.

What is the most valuable advice you received as a young writer?

The most valuable advice? The poet James Whitehead told me I had talent and to keep on working. That’s really all you need. Just a little encouragement from someone you respect.
