What I Do When I Get Stuck – by Margo Lanagan

Appearing over at Steph Su Reads (via the Bibliophile Stalker), awesome advice from the Queen of the Wicked Tale, Margo Lanagan (long may she reign).

Lots of people (including many schoolchildren) ask me what I do when a story stops working, or just stops – stops feeding itself through my brain onto the paper. Behind this question are many hours of suffering, and I have to say, behind my answer there’s plenty of time being anxious and wondering “However will I fix this?”—this story, this plot problem, this knotted sentence.
