You've just escaped an abusive home and traveled over six hundred miles to find your long lost sister. Your best friend and travel companion has recently died. You get off your bus and are standing on a busy street in a big city in the middle of Chinatown. You have yet to find your sister. You're hungry and worn out, with an angry determination to survive and persevere. You've got about eighty bucks and a Habitat for Humanity bag containing clean underwear and a toothbrush. You are alone. You ... I know my character pretty well. I know where the story starts and ends. But I've been stuck at this point, and I don't know what happens next. My character doesn't know either. My character has been frozen, standing on the sidewalk in front of a Chinese restaurant, for two weeks now. I need to continue the conflict, the tension, the obstacles... she doesn't know anybody here yet. She's in Boston, and I've been out of the city for some time and am having a hard time bringing myself (and therefore my character) back there mentally. What do you do when this happens? Even brainstorming possibilities leaves me stuck. What do you recommend? Appreciate any help.
