Written in the late 30's and 40's these books are some of the foundation work for space opera, and the Kinnisons together are like the first "super hero" family, fighting evil in the future with their telepathic powers.(less)

I find that writers who write distant expositive things either never get blocked (because there's no buy-in) or because they aren't immersed they can't -feel- how to intuit where the story goes next.

For myself, I get blocked when I get the characters stuck in a situation so dicy that there's no obvious solution. So, my challenge is then to think of a way out that would occur to the characters and won't seem contrived.(less)
