The Quest

I've been away...busy you might say. Yes, busy for eight months. I know  that sounds impossible, but between being a wife, a mom, a friend, a sister, a teacher and a tutor, I feel like my time gets swallowed up.  Time for what, you might ask, what time does a person need? Well...I have this spark...I want to write, to be a writer, I've got these stories bubbling up that want to get out, characters that invade my waking thoughts begging to be released on paper.  THE PROBLEM...well, the first is time...and that is completely up to me.  It's about making time.  But, I also wonder if I suffer from an extraordinary form of writers block.  I currently have two stories that I feel are original, unique, interesting...and imbedded with poor grammar..that I get stuck in the middle of and don't know where to go!

So, how does one break through writer's block? How do these writers come up with gripping story lines and endings that hold readers to the very last word.  I mean seriously, every time I read a good book, like recently the Hunger Games, I come out of it thinking...how do they DO that? I want to be like those authors, who can reach into people's minds and spin tales that they dream about at night.  What talent! That's what I want to do. SO...top ten methods to obliterate writers block...anyone?
