Have you ever gotten stuck in your creative work? REALLY stuck?

Sometimes this comes in the form of writer's block. Or sometimes your process gets in your own way. You keep trying to move forward and instead keep hitting a wall. This week I took reader questions and got two that fit well together dealing with the writing process and writer's block. Let's dive into some reader questions from the Create If Writing Facebook group and Periscope!

Now, on to reader questions!

Penelope from @Foster2Forever asked about writing process on Periscope.

Anita @blestbutstrest asked in the Facebook group about writing conferences.

I have been to a TON of conferences lately. Podcast Movement has been the best, but I've also been to AdventureCon (which I couldn't remember in the episode), Declare, Re:Write, Blog Elevated, and the Houston Baptist Writer's Conference. They are ALL good for different reasons! I'm a conference junkie, what can I say?

Thanks for listening this week and I would love to answer any questions you have about my new course or about the webinars! You can reach me at kirsten@kirstenoliphant.com
