I find that if I just step away and maybe go for a walk, the solution to whatever problem I'm having with the story usually gets solved. My mind has a hard time letting go if I find myself in trouble, but I take off the pressure by doing something different. If the writing isn't happening, I go for a walk to ease the pressure. You only think better when you're thinking clearly.(less)

I also get to use all the story ideas that pop into my head (and I get a lot of them so I don't know what I would do if I didn't like writing) and configure them to be an inspirational, suspenseful, meaningful tale for others to (hopefully) enjoy. Writing is my outlet. (less)
