  •  Scary book re: writer's block:THE MIDNIGHT (2+ / 0-)

    DISEASE: THE DRIVE TO WRITE, WRITER'S BLOCK, AND THE CREATIVE BRAIN, by Alice W, Flaherty, Houugton Millflin, 2004.  Be prepared to wade through a lot of brain theory and psychological "stuff".  I don't know that reading Flaherty's book encouraged me to write any better, but her book has been on my bedside table forever.  When I'm having a bad night of insomnia, I re-read chapters related to my "Midnight Disease." My interest in this book began in researching a project to encourage creativity with students, but I found it intensely personal with my own creative struggle as as artist.
