How do you overcome writer’s block? I didn’t think it would happen to me, but here I am, stuck. The method that helped me before, writing every new bit as if it was a scene that can stand alone,  is not working. I have ideas, but they’re not connected, they’re loosely strewn across the floor, and I can’t string them together. I feel ridiculous, staring at them.

When I do arrange them in sequence, there is no inner logic. Then I’ll lose myself in a detail, until, hours later, I realize I’ve followed a false bend. What a mess.
