I set time to write, or set word count goals and push through. If the story really isn't flowing I take a walk and close my eyes and really picture what my character would do or say in the situation that's happening in the plot.(less)

Jim Henson
“I don't know exactly where ideas come from, but when I'm working well ideas just appear. I've heard other people say similar things - so it's one of the ways I know there's help and guidance out there.
