Unblock Writer's Block
How to face it, deal with it and overcome it.
With over 70 writing exercises to get you started and keep you writing

"Writer's block is a phony, made up, BS excuse for not doing your work." - Jerry Seinfeld
If you have writer’s block, or are having difficulty writing, then this book should help you beat back whatever is blocking you, get you writing and keep you writing.

The exercises in this book--there are over 70 of them--will help you move beyond your block, and write, write, write.

If you feel as if you are stuck in a prisoner’s block, then consider this book a set of tools baked in a cake and delivered to your cell. They will help you break out of the block, so you will be free to write again.

If you use the tools in this book and put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard, letters will appear. And some of those letters will form words. And some of those words will form sentences. And some of those sentences will form paragraphs. And so on and so on...

And here you thought you were blocked! So get ready to buckle down and write! (See table of contents below.)

"Paul Lima's exercises for overcoming writer's block are excellent. I recommend this book to any writer. Don't sit down at the typewriter (or computer) without it!"
– Tony Levelle, freelance writer

"I received this book free of charge from the author in return for a review. Lima talks directly to the reader. He gives a lot of specific instructions and even tells you when to do them, for example to put down the book, do a writing exercise and then return to the book. Lima also addresses the difference between writer's block and procrastination. With the wide variety of exercises that Lima proposes and his go-to attitude I now have no choice but to return to writing a short story I had given up on. This book is a must read for anyone who has a partly completed manuscript lying in a drawer or languishing on a computer." -
