Immerse yourself in the moment, in the world you are building. Sometimes it helps me to think about an aspect of the place rather than forcing the scene. If I'm stuck on what happens next —what actions the character takes — I think about objects in that space, what people are wearing and doing around the main event, what kind of noises there are and where they come from, that kind of thing. It puts you into the place and time, feet on the carpet, hearing the air conditioning whoosh from the vents, looking around with your character(s) and noticing the world around you. (less)

If you could do that in real life, you know what the world would call you, right? A god. (less)

Zombies…Jesus Christ on wheat toast, there were zombies everywhere. Howard backed into the cheap fabric of a five-foot by five-foot cage. No need to turn and look, he already knew what it was. No point in asking how the damned thing got outside, either. –That stupid, hateful, mandatory cubicle. He shook his head and hoisted a sluggish chainsaw higher.
