If I just can't figure out what's going to happen next, I reverse my character's actions. If he/she walks in the door somewhere and there's nothing to happen, I have her/him run back out. Up the stairs? They charge back down. Still, peaceful scene that's too quiet? There's a fire. Or a storm. Or the spat of gunfire. The beauty of being the author is that you can make anything happen, no matter what it is. Don't let writer's block keep you from the magic.(less)

***ANNOUNCEMENT***
After much debate, I am switching blog sites.
As I get more serious about turning my writing hobby into a career, I'm also looking for ways to streamline my internet visibility. Wordpress offers me a few more options than Blogspot, so (after they bribed me with lots of promises of chocolate and other yumminess), I decided to make the transition.
If you wish (and I really hope yo... Read more of this blog post »
