The rewrite can be a painful process on days when the words don’t come easily, so concentration and immersion into the story have to happen as the writing begins. I’ve read that there’s no such thing as writer’s block. That’s up for debate, but maybe the person responsible for the quote meant that you just have to sit through it, take time to get into the characters’ heads, and then let them  tell the story of their lives. So today, I listen.
