One of the things that plagues all writers to some degree is the dreaded "writer's block" where you just cannot seem to produce any ideas or make the words flow. Us RPers are far from being immune to this unfortunate occurrence and it can be quite the frustration at times.

How often do you find writer's block getting in the way of your RPing? Does it last long? How do you deal with writer's block?

I've had that for the last few weeks, but it's getting over now, luckily. It is really annoying, because it now took me about a month to work out a character background and write a sign up for Explorer's Guild.

I find the best way to fix writer's block is to actually start writing :P

Though I rarely get it, it's usually laziness from my side xD

There have been times when I have been in a RP where I have had writer's block lasting for a week or more. I am not sure why it has lasted that long at times.

Most of my writer's block in regards to rping is just laziness. I just don't feel like writing, and so I end up putting it off. And most of the time its not really a big deal because half of my rp posts are jps anways. Either that or they go off of something that has already been established so there's not too much to think about yet.

Writer's block got me a few times during Outbreak. It actually really helped because I changed the story and plot based on how my block got me. Haha.
Writer's block helped? Is that even possible?
You broke logic again Klippy.

I had one possible plot where we traveled to the military base and met up with some of Bratton's men, but I had writer's block on how to get us there, so I thought more and came up with the grocery store/Garner's stuff. :P

That was so much fun actually.
Still I don't know if I'd call that helping haha
