You know when you’re writing fiction and you’re on a roll and you have this great story in your head and your characters are developing satisfactorily and you actually enjoy editing and you keep getting more inspirations and you write for days with little thought about anything else and it all seems so easy until you suddenly find yourself stuck and you can’t get passed it and your characters are locked in position?
So you sleep on it and you come back to it the next day but every sentence you write is drivel and the entire thing starts to look like it was a big, fat mistake and you’d rather throw the whole thing out the window and go clean your house, and your neighbour’s house, and maybe the one across the street too because your story is stalled and you don’t know what to do about it.
You know that problem?
Well there’s a very simple solution. And I’m going to share it with you.
All you have to do is create some natural disaster, like a tornado, that will rip through the building and flatten the town. Now, everyone is crushed and your story has an ending.
