For whatever reason, I often untie a story knot if I'm on a 3-4 mile walk through the wooded park near my house. Second, research. If I get stuck, I'll research more about my character's profession or other particular trait, and often I'll learn something that will take me in a new direction. (less)

“Most people aren’t living. They’re planning, remembering, or regretting.”
Jamie Beck, In the Cards

“Keeping quiet forces other people to do all the talking and all the revealing.”
Jamie Beck, In the Cards

“Even in the crisp night air, being near her felt like standing under the sun. Warmth seeped from her body and flowed along the ground, like a river of heat seeking to penetrate the frozen places inside his chest.”
Jamie Beck, Worth the Wait

I don't know that I ever saw or replied to this notice. Now it is months later! Sorry. Sometimes I stay away from GR for chunks of time. I love it as a reader, but it can be a little harsh when you see a bad review! LOL Anyway, I appreciate your note and hope you enjoyed ITC as well as WTW. I'm busy writing more books for all my series, so hopefully I can continue to keep you entertained. Thanks for writing!
