It happens in every story. I get to a point where I'm stuck. I know where I need to eventually get to, I have a good sense of where I've been, I just can't get from here to there.

At close to 12K in "Future Tense," I've hit a snag. I have all the main characters introduced, as well as the main conflict. I have a sense of the POV character's voice. All good.

What I need is more stuff in the middle.

What kind of complications/distractions can I throw at Matt that will push him closer to the big thing he really doesn't want to do?


Thinking, thinking. . .
