You mean that slow moving train of thought I keep losing?
That process of leading up to that dreaded midpoint where everything is free flowing and the ideas are coming together to that beautiful peak . . .that point of heightened anticipation until . .
It’s all just kind of left in suspended animation?
Just keep writing. Write right through it. Write out every possible scenario until you find the one that clicks.
I tend to be a bit of a list junkie and will list all of my ideas, no matter how ridiculous, improbable or off the beaten track in long hand.
The process of writing things out by hand is quite cathartic and allows me to think as I write.
Most of the time those long hand ideas develop into the most intriguing ideas and make the story interesting again.
How to do keep up your writing process?
