Ways to Get Unstuck
I just came across a great guest post from Stephen Blackmoore on Chuck Wendig’s blog Terrible Minds. It’s nothing that most writers haven’t read here and there, but I love the way it collects everything together into a handy list. If you write fiction, take a look. I’ll definitely be turning to this list in the future.
The mention of the cards in the first paragraph made me think of Story Cubes, something that I saw mentioned over on the GMS blog. They have even based a writing competition around them. They are designed as a game rather than as a tool for writers, but the underlying principle seems similar. Has anyone out there played with these, either for entertainment or as a writing tool? What are the tricks you use when a story gets stuck? Let me know!
