Profit

Creativus interruptus, steps:

1. Have a great idea for a story arc to continue with a chapter I'm stuck on, a character arc that will last for most of the book.

2. Characters cooperate with the idea and love it.

3. Discover that I overlooked the fact that some of the characters involved are beings that live and think on a different time scale than humans. And being non-humanoid (they are sapient trees), they don't think the same way as humans either.

4. What this means for me is that the story flow stops after two pages, because the characters don't rush things.

5. Dismay

By the way, new icon for my Ravenstone posts! It's a painting of a raven on a stone.
