Some advice for when you’re writing and find yourself stuck in the middle of a scene

  • kill someone
  • ask this question: “What could go wrong?” and write exactly how it goes wrong
  • switch the POV from your current character to another - a minor character, the antagonist, anyone
  • stop writing whatever scene you’re struggling with and skip to the next one you want to write
  • write the ending
  • write a sex scene
  • use a scene prompt
  • use sentence starters
  • read someone else’s writing

    Never delete. Never read what you’ve already written. Pass Go, collect your $200, and keep going.
