Since I'm still working the day job and have several other balls to juggle, the first is simple exhaustion. It's hard to be creative when you're dead tired. At that point, I have to step back and assess priorities rather than stress out.
The second is the dreaded, what happens next? Fortunately I don't hit this one often, but when I do I brainstorm with friends. Sometimes it gets completely out of control and leads to great ideas for future books. :)(less)

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours”
