Tame Your Writing Demons (Kill Writer’s Block)

Demons can possess any writer’s imagination and writing process; it’s commonly called Writer’s Block. “Famous” writers have learned to harness ‘demon energy’ for creativity. We’ll lure your writing demon out of its dark corner so you can name it, tame it and get it to work with you instead of against you. Bring a short description or object that symbolizes your demon, something that represents what you feel like when you are blocked.
