I skipped around it.
Nancy Kress does an excellent job teaching writers to write in scenes. That always bothered me since I mostly hold the story intact in my head. Last night and to be honest for the last few nights, my grasp hasn't been so strong.
(As a little aside, try to write what you're burning to write. That's your muse or subconscious telling you that your imagination is warmed up and ready. I was burning to write The Mageborn Mechanic a few months ago. I didn't, spending my time editing Angel Odyssey instead. Now, here I am...)
I got got stuck. I had outlined this novel, I 'knew' what had to come next. But I couldn't figure out how to go from where I was to where I needed to be. So I skipped.
I put some brackets describing the problem I needed to solve and started the next chapter with my main character bleeding and holding a bag of frozen peas to his face with grim triumph. What happened? I have no idea. But I'll find out in my second draft when I go back to fix that chapter.
In the mean time, I put down some more words. Go forwards. Keep moving. Keep writing. If you get stuck, note down where you're stuck and what you don't know what you have to fix. Then start your next chapter with a hook to draw you and your reading on. Ke
