The answer was to generalise the characters e.g. Pirate princess seeks to deliver object from dying white knight, Pirate prince usurps the kingdom and sets it on a course to destruction. By thinking of the story and characters in this very basic one-dimensional way, I was able to step back from the characters and plot the story.

Other ideas: go for a walk / swim. Write something else. (less)

Secrets of the Scene Brief

Secrets of the Scene Brief 

We all have aspects of writing we are good at and other areas we need to work on.  The Scene Brief is a writing process borrowed from script writing that enables me to focus on writing different aspects of my scenes at different times by layering techniques one on top of the other.  This is how it works:
