I haven’t written a word in nearly two weeks. The book is half done.
I have heard that the middle of the book is the hardest bit to write, the most common place to get stuck. How do I get out of it?
I have some idea what the next biggest scene will be. I even have some idea what my character needs to do – he has a to do list! And he’s sorely behind in the list of the things he needs to do. (He was derailed by the plot bunny!) Poor guy.
But I don’t know the next immediate step. I don’t know how he gets from here to the next biggest scene and he can’t just skip from here to there. I don’t even know how he gets from here to the next thing on his to do list.
I’m stuck and it’s unpleasant. Very, very unpleasant.
