It happens to every writer: One day you’re happily drafting your story and the next, it feels like you’ve run into a brick wall or gotten completely lost in a tangled forest of your own making. Don’t despair! In this session, we’ll discuss some useful techniques for getting unstuck and finding your way back into the narrative. We’ll start with the importance of identifying the core of your story, mapping its key turning points, and diagnosing common problems. We’ll engage in exercises focused on auditing scenes, reverse outlining, self-critiquing and more. The next time your story feels like a jumbled mess, try pulling out one of these tools from your writer’s toolbox.
