SEMO Writers Guild Tackles “How to Overcome the Blank Slate of Writer’s Block”

Cape Girardeau, MO March 7, 2022 – SEMO Writers Guild announces Shaen Layle, a USA Today Bestselling author, as the speaker for the March 19th, 2022 meeting to be held at the Cape Girardeau Public Library located at 711 Clark St, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701.

Shaen Layle is an accomplished bestselling author who writes inspirational cozy mysteries from her home in St Louis, Missouri and says “I love to discuss all things bookish with my readers on my website and on social media.”

Overcoming writer’s block is a delicate process that is often highly subjective and depends on each individual. But, at the end of the day, it is about conquering self-doubt and knowing that hard work will eventually pay off. Shaen Layle will share some writing tips and tricks to get the creative juices flowing again.

Shaen said “Have you ever found yourself staring at a blank page for long periods of time, trying to write but being unable to find any words? You’re not alone. This is called writer’s block, and all writers struggle with it, from journalists to novelists. SEMO Writers Guild has taken an active approach to help member authors overcome a writer’s worst nightmare.”

Writer’s block is triggered by a number of things, depending on the individual. Some people believe that writer’s block stems from a lack of ideas or even talent. However, that’s usually not the case. Shaen says “There are triggers of writer’s block that we all must deal with and hopefully the tips and tricks I leave with the SEMO Writers Guild meeting will help my fellow authors overcome the blight of Writers Block!”

Penguin Random House has said this “Don’t beat yourself up. Be kind. Give yourself a break, and have faith. It will come back.” But all authors know it is not always simple to shake the depths of writer’s block.
