Well, my writer’s block is finally broken! I received some long-awaited information, which lead me to some additional research, which took me to a different site where I found a small but significant detail,which resulted in a new addition to my plot! (It sounds much more circuitous than it really was.) It is very satisfying to finally have my plot back in motion. Sitting in front of a word document with nothing going on is NOT my idea of entertainment! (It tends to be dangerous as well; it’s too easy to look at the work already done and think, “This is total tripe-I should just start over!”) It is also tempting to keep researching just for the sake of research! There is nothing as satisfying as finding that nugget of fact that leaves one thinking, “Well, no wonder!” At any rate, the new novel is back on track, as well as back in focus!
