Filling in the gaps

Your on a roll. You have been going strong for a while now and are really happy with your story and where your characters are at right now. Then the unthinkable happens… you don’t know what to do next. You know what your next major plot point is but you don’t know how to get there. There is multiple things you can do to move your story along…

is there any aftermath of certain recent events that have happened? Emotionally or physically? Does your character feel bad about something he/she just did? Did they get hurt on their last adventure? If they did who helps your character get better? You see what i’m getting at? 

explain things that your reader might not know – how did your character pick that lock? How did they know how to pick the lock? This could lead to some backstory of your character. 

Remember! Don’t have anything random happen. Keep it all in line with your plot and making sense. Don’t force anything. 

Hope you liked this blog! Let me know if you have any other ways to fill in gaps.
