writer's block

it happens...

i once told a friend of mine that when you go through writer's block you should just sit down and write... write anything... good or bad... just get back into the habit.

and her first novel is about to be published and her first non-fiction is in the final stages of editing for the shelves.

pobble, i am so proud of you!!! (and not just 'cause you took my advice.)

now, to listen to my own advice...
