If I'm stuck because I don't know what happens next in the story, I usually pull out a notebook and brainstorm on paper. If I'm stuck because I'm forcing a character to do something they don't want to do, it helps to just stop and listen to them, so to speak. I also often jump back and forth within the story I'm writing, and sometimes between multiple stories. And when everything fails, I get up and go for a walk. (less)
