Writer's Block/Gingerbread house

I'm writing a book.

I've had writer's block for months.

My main character is sitting in the same spot I left her at 4 months ago. I'm in a Writer's Guild, and I feel bad about going, because I haven't had anything to bring in quite some time.

I've been staring at the blank page, knowing what's going to happen after the point I'm stuck at, but having no clue how to move from point A to point B. An old professor of mine (I shouldn't write it that way--she's far from old; just a previous professor of mine) gave me a book last week that gives you ideas for books. It's really fun, and I've had a kick out of reading it (and it's actually given me ideas for the future), but I'm still stuck. Bleh.

So instead of freewriting or anything productive, I'll post fun pictures of my week with Mr. Hercules and Son instead. We made a gingerbread house, watched some Star Trek (Mr. H is making me--Ann, I'm sure you're proud lol. It actually isn't too bad!), hung out at my parents' house, and played games together.

The owl is one of my Christmas presents from Ty & Logan. We're doing Christmas early, since Logan goes back to his mom's on Friday. It's the cutest owl--it plugs into your USB port and blinks its eyes and turns its head :) You can see a video of it here.

Mr. H & Son watching Star Trek

Playing Ty's WOW board game.. Yeah. I lost. But it's kinda fun! :)

The rest are a big jumble of gingerbread decorating/wrestling/having fun/Logan pretending to be Batman photos. They aren't really in any order, so make up the story on your own as you go along. :)

Obviously a great time was had by all! :)

    We missed talking to Logan tonight! Sorry we missed your calls. :( The girls love him so much. I laughed so much at his little message. :)

    Star Trek is incredibly out!! :)

    He was pretty bummed when I told him we were going to Mom & Dad's and he said "The girls be there?" and I had to tell him no. :( So we'll try calling again tonight :) He leaves tomorrow morning. *sigh*

    I surprised myself when Ty asked me what I wanted to watch last night after Logan went to bed and I said "Star Trek." LOL I wasn't even trying to be nice and watch something he wanted! Oh dear... lol

    What a beautiful gingerbread house!!! So proper, with the cut-out pieces and icicle-icing and everything... I think we're just going to stick some graham crackers together for Kiddo this year, LOL...

    So glad you had a great time, and best wishes for dissolving that writer's block! :-)
