You can't write until you know what will happen next, and 'what will happen next' is story. You're not stuck on writing, you're stuck on story. And the key to story is character. The character drives the story. The character's past, their desires, their pain and emotion forces them to make decisions. So if you're stuck writing something, it means you don't know the character well enough. Sit down and map out the character's past, their family, education, and their psyche. And once you've done that, you'll know what the character will do next. And once you know what they will do, you can begin to write again.(less)

Wow. Such a potentially dry subject made so fascinating. Not a book a bout a map - a book about humanity's perception of the world we live in. Paced like a thriller, you feel like you're reading a James Bond movie script, as if the fate of the world ...more
