There have been a few times when I’ve been writing and have been hit by writer’s block. That’s not a fun obstacle to run into, as most of you know. I’ve found the best way to overcome this is to jump ahead in the piece I’m writing, then go back to where I became stuck. I bet some of you wonder how can this work? How do you know what’s going to happen further on if you are still writing the earlier bits?
If you know your characters, along with the plot and subplots of your story, moving ahead to write is easy. That’s why having even a basic outline with the three acts summarized can help you. You know what your character wants or needs to know, you know who or what is blocking your character’s goals, and you should know how the story ends. Everything between those points is getting your character from one point to another, making it interesting for the readers to keep reading.
Don’t let writer’s block stop your creative process. It can be overcome.
