Question
Hey Ms. or Mrs. Nikki. How are you doing today? My name's Kevin, I'm a future author or bookwriter and I want to ask you something as a fellow writer. How do I get past writer's block? I know what I want to write but I don't know how to write it. I'm writing a fantasy book right now and it's supposed to be in the middle ages but I don't know how to put
it..so...please....help me out....thanks........
         Your Friend, Kevin

Answer
Writer's block is tough. Reading about how to overcome  it might help. Type in "writer's block" in a search engine and artcles will show up. I read Jenna Glatzer's book Outwitting Writer's Block, and it was helpful. You might just want to clear your mind and write something, anything even if it sounds like gibberish. That may help. Good luck.
