These things allow me to engage in health activity and give me some time to think about what I'm stuck on so it's kind of a 2 for 1 deal.

TV and video games are not so helpful since my mind tends to focus on the entertainment that I am receiving and when I go back to writing I am no less stuck than I was before.

A huge preventative to block that I use is to create a very detailed outline. This allows me to set up all the key points of a chapter, story, or section. I also use this time to make decisions on how things are named. If the world or characters are especially deep or confusing, then I also make a basic spreadsheet to keep track of it all. (less)

Don't call him Batman...

Though things start off pretty slow due to a lot of information about the rules of this world and it's magic systems being rehashed, there's still an engaging tale to be told, especially after the first fourth of the book.
