Writer's Block... or Not?

There is a problem being an LDS writer. There is a concept in LDS theology that the Spirit will help you discern that a thing is wrong by giving you a stupor of thought.

So if I can't write, is it because I shouldn't write the thing I was thinking of writing? Gah!!!!

I've thought of dozens of ways to write the prologue of my historical fiction novel about Nauvoo polygamy, but I just can't... get... any... of... them... on... paper...

Crumple, crumple, toss.

Tonight I go back to the wall. I will write. It may be complete garbage, but I will write.
