Fortunately, I’ve learned a thing or two about how my squirrely mind works. When I’m blocked, it’s almost always because I know something’s not working, and my subconscious keeps me from plodding onward. That’s when I take a step back, reread my work, and try to identify the problem. Plot hole? Stilted dialogue? Flat voice? Once I nail it, the dam bursts and my words flow again.
