Don’t you hate when you start writing and then you hit a stonewall? Sometimes I can’t seem to get around it. Then I go for days without writing and lose my streak. But this is usually when I try to drive the story and do things my way. In my last book, I shut my eyes, exhaled and said ‘F it, time to let the characters control the story then.’ and lo and behold, I finished my book in under two months. They took me to places I least expected.

I might as well keep it up for my second and third book.
