For most writers there comes a time when we struggle with a scene or a character, slowing the pace of the writing. We must pause and take a step back. Evaluate where we are at and what it is we are trying to achieve. Are we in the right setting, have the correct characters in play, is the situation what it should be? Sometimes, when we free up our minds and let go of our preconceived notions regarding our own script we learn something new. We may find the answer (or hero) in the least of expected locations.

And sometimes, we find it’s time to let one go. But great sacrifice often makes for a great story. Have you found yourself in this position recently?
