I told you I’d be back to moan and wallow around in despair! I’m roughly 3K from finishing Chapter Three and I HAVE NO INSPIRATION. D:

All the characters just flew the coop. They are currently in separate rooms (sulking?) and I need them together in order to progress the plot. DARN YOU ALL.

And then there are the sneaky characters who are plotting something I can’t even conceive of yet–but I know it’s going to throw a monkey wrench into the planned sequence of events.

Why are they being so bad?

What can I do?

Must finish this chapter tonight. ARGH!

    Listen to what the characters are saying. They left for a reason; find that reason. Don’t force the writing, never force the writing. Maybe try writing something else? Coax them out? Or maybe a different part of the story. You don’t have to write linearly.

      Loving your icon. :) When I start a story I usually have a handful of scenes already in my head. If I’m lucky, there is a close-to-ending scene that becomes a goal to work towards. In this case, I’ve got one of those. Let’s call it D. I’ve written A and B. But C is missing. C is not the confrontation of the arch nemesises, but the capturing *before* the confrontation. Only I’m not quite sure how to get there…

        Best way to work with those is to just start writing. You don’t have to keep writing but it’ll help pull up ideas and you can sift through them to find the ones you like best. Also you can try working back from C. You know where you’re going so what happened right before that, then before that then before that.
