Something happened when I hit the 20,000 word mark on the latest thriller: I stalled. I didn't write for a few days (life happens, you know?) and then I struggled with where I wanted to go.
The fourth novel in my Central Division Series is going very well, and I know where I want to go from here.
But I need to fill in the gaps.
So, I decided to go back through my book so far, chapter by chapter, and re-read it. I'm making notes as I go, to see where I had made promises, created clues that I forgot about, and in one instance changed to District Attorney's name and gender.
If you find yourself stalling, wondering what to write next, may I make a suggestion to try this. It may work for you. It may not.
But doing something is better than nothing.
