Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today I am suffering from a bad case of writer’s block. Okay, well not just today; it’s been happening for almost the entire summer. I wrote about my book the other day, and I’m very pleased with how it’s coming along, but sometimes I wish I could get more done. While I try to work on my book a little bit each day, I haven’t gotten a lot done recently. I feel like I have had a very bad case of writer’s block, and I can’t seem to figure out how to get through the end of chapter three.
Writer’s block is very common in writers, whether they be published authors, aspiring authors, or students writing essays. I’ve suffered from writer’s block numerous times in the past, but this time is really annoying me. I don’t have any kind of deadline for my book to be finished, but I’m anxious to get all of my ideas on paper and to see a finished product eventually. I think that I just have so many ideas that I can’t focus my thoughts and energy into the piece that I’m in the middle of, which is certainly frustrating.
I’ve been in the middle of chapter three for the entire summer, and now I’m already back to school and haven’t finished it yet. I have edited and revised my first two and a half chapters multiple times, but seem to only be able to add a sentence or two at a time in chapter three. I’m hoping that I have a breakthrough soon, so that I will be able to move forward with the book. The sooner I am able to get a first draft done, the sooner I’ll be able to edit and submit to an agent, and then I’ll be able to share what my book is about! Fingers crossed that the process goes somewhat smoothly!

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
