Yes, I know that sounds simplistic but here's how it works: I think in terms of scenes. Each scene is a short story with a beginning, middle and end. If one scene isn't working I write around it -- I skip ahead to another scene or go back to an earlier scene that needs work. Or maybe I'll just write about the weather in a troublesome scene. Here's the secret: creativity generates creativity. If you stop, the act of creation stops.(less)
