Don’t panic!

Everyone gets stuck every now and then! 

With any WIP, you may get to a point when it’s not necessarily a block, but a sticking point. I call this being stuck in the middle.

This happens when you get to a point in your work when you don’t know what will/should happen next. Again, it isn’t a block–it is portion of story/project where you are unsure where to go next. 

A block is a stoppage of all creativity, not the uncertainty of where to go.

The best thing to so when you get stuck is to be unstuck. You become unstuck by walking away from the work. Stephen King said that ‘the story will reveal itself.’ This means you have to be patient. You have to be perceptive to inspiration, and any creative energy. 

Like anything stuck, you have to be patient. And you have to have a strategy.

 

In Love & Ink,
