Combating writer's block can be hard, which is why John August is trying to get the Writer Emergency Pack off the ground. The screenwriter (Big Fish, Frankenweenie) feels your writer-related struggles and turned to crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to secure finances for the project. The Writer Emergency Pack consists of story ideas written on a deck of cards you can use for reference the next time you get stuck creatively.

If you need help combating writer's block, the 26 illustrated cards will help spark your imagination with curated tips and "immediately useful ideas." This includes more direct suggestions such as "every villain is a hero."

The fundraising campaign is also working on a give one, get one model so supporters get a pack, but can also contribute to a youth writing program.
