Hemingway compared confronting the blank page to "staring down the bull." Today is my official first day back at the keyboard and I have to say, I don't feel as though I'm staring at anything as lively as a bull. It's more like staring into this void--cold, unfeeling and mocking in its emptiness. I can feel the rust clogging up gears of creativity that once whizzed along at lightning speed. Though I know I've gone through periods of inactivity before, I can't help but wonder: Will I ever get my writing groove back? Yes, I'm more than willing to try a tryst with a twenty-one year old Caribbean love god (hey, that's how Stella did it!), I think I'm going to have to try some good, old-fashioned writing exercises to thaw the icicles on my freezer-burned storytelling skills. I have a few tried and true methods, but any and all suggestions are welcome. Okay, all you writers out there: How do you get your groove back after a hiatus?
