Stuck

Creative inspiration–I don’t have it.

I have two existing novel projects that I’m slowly trudging away at. In both projects I’ve reached a plot deadlock.

With Realm, I have an outline that I’ve been following. But I’m so unsatisfied with the current conflict that I can’t seem to write beyond the certain point.

With Translation, the plot is completely stuck. I threw a major plot device in there but now I have no idea what to do with it. i can’t just trash the idea because it was such a central part of the story. If I were to trash the idea, I would trash the entire project.

One of these projects is too close to my life for me to take too much creative license with it and the other is so far from my life that I have no personal experiences to draw from..

Frustrating.

  1. Keep your head up and don’t give up. Don’t worry about the “rules”, just tell the story. Personally when I get stuck I like to jump a head in the plot or storyline and write something less frustrating. I wish you the best of luck!
