I’m not sure what I’ll do, but— well, I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale.

I want to spend a day in the mind of Neil Gaiman, honestly. 

You really don’t. It’s weird in here. Also I think that thing over there in the corner of my mind is moving.

Don’t look. Maybe it won’t see us.

blacklipmo ASKED: Best way to cure writers block? 😶

What the faculty members at my school call ass-in-chair time. Just sit down and write.

But in all honesty, really assess WHY you’re not writing. There are so many different reasons people get “blocked,” (using scare quotes, because I don’t like the term “writer’s block”) you have to figure out what your reason is to overcome it.
