Getting unstuck

Allow me to point you to this awesome post by Beth Kephart on getting a novel unstuck. A sample:

"Say you're not completely sure about how to carry your dreamy idea about the story through. Do you sit? Do you moan? Do you eat all available chocolate? You could, but here is something else you might do ..."

I have used the strategy she describes, and found it helpful. I doubt there is any single writing tool that works all the time for everyone, but it's worth a try. (And there's always the chocolate.)


  1. Thank you for this new connection. I love the way her words flow. Her tip in her post of 6/5/14 hit home.
