snickfic: Meg Cas kiss closeup (Meg Cas)
Usual disclaimer of everyone's different, what works for me may not work for you, etc, but these are all things that I have found to be true over and over and over in my personal writing life.

1. The thing you want to write most, write first. If you keep waiting for the "right time" to write it, you very easily might never write it at all. (This is a very pointed comment at myself, fyi.)

2. If you're not sure what happens next, try delegating decisions to someone else. Get someone you trust to read what you have so far, and then ask them what else the story needs to happen. (The ONLY reason my Sid/Phil story is finished is because I got a friend to do this for the last ~5k or so.)

3. If you're stuck on a project and nothing you write works, you probably made a mistake earlier in the story. Go back and figure out how you wrote yourself into this corner, and cut that part out.
