Ellison Blackburn is the author of now numerous mysterious sci-fi and alternate-history novels.

I have a low boredom threshold, and I'm a purely indie pub, so my approach is probably a bit unique on this one. If I truly hit a road bump in the book I'm trying to write, and all the usual tricks, like changing playlist, taking a walk, taking a wor See J C’s answer.
