Last Ditch Tricks

stockvault-jumper-cables-and-hand119801The scene-listing trick has been employed.

Much like a back-up parachute, it is something one never plans to use.

Listing the scenes in a novel, both written and yet-to-be written, is my last ditch maneuver in jumpstarting a stalled project. Seeing on paper what exactly is left to be done on a book never ceases to ignite the “Let’s get this bad boy done!” fire in me.  Show me a finish line and I’ll grind my hands and knees to the bone crawling to it.

Bottom line:  Know your last ditch tricks… and use them.

Until tomorrow…
