When I get stuck while I’m writing, it’s usually a sign that I went the wrong way with my story somewhere. Recently, I had to admit I’d jacked up my story. In my haste to reach the end, I made a bad plot decision. This decision deflated my heroine’s spunk and had my hero acting out of character.
I knew something was off, but figured my slow progress and blah feeling for the wip was due to being busy with other commitments. So I kept writing until I hit wall.
The heroine needed to have a conversation with her sister.
To bust through this wall, I didn’t think much about my wip and:
1. Cleaned the house
2. Spent time outdoors
3. Watched movies
5. Hung out with my family
My Aha! moment hit me after a few days. I replotted the last 2/3 of the story and am excited again to work on it. Woot!
What do you do to get unstuck?
