How To Cure Writer’s Block

Dear Friends,

Last year, I had the honor of speaking at STORY EXPO 2013, one of the best screenwriting events of the year in Los Angeles, CA. It was a pleasure to make so many new connections and new friends.

I presented four seminars on two topics; “Cracking Screen Story Structure” and “14 Character Categories in All Successful Screen Stories.”  Each seminar was approximately an hour and a half. In these classes, I covered the 23 interlocking actions used in every successful movie to create dynamic heroes and emotion-filled plots, and the 14 character categories that are used by all successful authors.

Both the presenters and the attendees had a unique opportunity to meet each other and share our love of writing and insights in the creation of story.  It was just plain fun to be in the presence of so many like-minded people.

Below is an audio excerpt from one of my talks which addressed some of the common stumbling blocks all writers face – like writer’s block.  I hope you find it worthwhile.

Writing screenplays is not easy.  If you need a fresh approach to writing screenplays, my book THE STORY SOLUTION brings to light an innovative way to insure effective plotlines for both screenplays and novels. You can find the book at and
STORY EXPO 2014 is already in the works.  The entire The Story Solution team is looking forward to seeing old friends made in 2013, and new friends yet to come.
All the best,
Eric Edson
