I write this from one of those days that I made a little pause, while I'm finishing a script (deadlines in sight!). Valencia, where I usually live, is the place where they come from some of the oranges California (remember, that was part of Spain), in fact Valencia should to be related to "Orange County", we share climate. I approached to the Mediterranean Sea to read topics related to what I am writing, documentation and books regarding the screenplay. It's my way of "escape" of blockages. Well all you that write, know that feeling ... Some days everything "flows" and others will simply compel yourself to work. Because sometimes the work is not always easy, or come by "divine inspiration." Sometimes it´s apples, sometimes it´s oranges (from Valencia or from California). Nobody said this writing screenplays, had to be easy (at least to me). The advantages of the technique or experience will undoubtedly help a lot. Writing is a muscle that needs to be exercised* (*curiously screenwriting, to be exercised, must be combined for a time X6 in reading, I think). But as much we try, there are days that neither: no apples, not oranges… If we're lucky, the most we get it is raisins. Guess everyone has their "trick" for those days. Mine is very simple: I write about something else, I read, diving in documents or get close to places that give me "peace", just like that. I do not like to force things ... What is your "trick"?
