Writer’s Block is a Real Thing

If you’re a writer, then at some point in your life you’ve encountered the dreaded writer’s block.  Hell, if you’ve written a school essay you’ve encountered it.

It’s real.  It’s horrible.  It sucks.

It happened to me the other day and I was quite surprised by it.  I know.  You must be thinking, “Ummm Cristina, this is nothing new to you right?”

On the Air Reading at The York – Recap

So as I am writing this post, I realize that we finished writing On the Air two years ago, last week.  Two years sounds like so long and so short a time.  It’s crazy to think how far we’ve come and how much we still have yet to do, but that’s the amazing part of this whole process!

I needed a few days to “detox” and recover from this latest reading.  I took a week off blogging and feel so much better about it.  The whole month of October was a bit of a whirlwind, to be honest.  I mentioned it before, but the casting process was insane.  We were down to the very last minute with a few of these roles.  We couldn’t be happier with the cast we got though! So encouraging, hard working, and just the nicest group of people.  You can read all about them here.

Some things you just believe in, even if you’ve never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It’s out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she’s got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph’s eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick’s self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he’s knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she’s building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can’t walk away. Not when she’s the only one who’s ever made him wish for forever . . .

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever…
