Then you would just take a runny at it (ie run fast at it and not think about it). I do that with writing. If I am stuck, I take a mental run at it (a mental runny) and just write anything down. The point here is don't let yourself pause because you feel you have to get your book right the first time around. Get the story down then go back and edit it, changing all the bits you don't like.(less)
D.A. Nelson Actually completing novels I am proud of. Getting to know other authors and readers and talking books with them. I love that.
