One of my writer friends asked the group about overcoming writers block.
Byron answered, "paint your character into a corner or introduce a new character in the plot. Now that your character is stuck, find a way to get him or her unstuck."
There are no other adjectives in the English language like "unstuck." The dictionary defines it as brought into a state of disarray, discomposure, or incoherence.
In my personal life, Byron's advice is much needed.
I think to myself, what if God led me to this cul-de-sac on purpose? Does He want me to look at my life from a different point of view?
Getting unstuck requires thought and action. It's not necessarily a bad thing if you can grow from the experience. A wise writer will set a trap for his character and then figure out a way to free him. I wonder what the Author of my life is planning for my conundrum. Without conflict, there isn't much of a story. Sometimes, another character will enter to offer a solution. In life, we need others to get through the impasse.
Are you stuck? You are not alone. Embrace your situation. When you get unstuck you will be wiser and stronger. A new frontier awaits you. It's all part of life.
