Hey guys, I have 2 questions really. I have read so many times, that the most common (or atleast one common) mistake when writing their first novel that they try and make everything perfect. They go back and edit and revise the first chapter and never get anywhere. Instead what I've read that is recommended is to just write, and revise after you finished it. This seems to be solid advice, and it really motivated me to just push through. However, I got stuck when trying to describe a certain part of my story. So my first question is when trying to power through the novel and you come to a dead hault in describing something, how do you push through it? I don't think it's writer's block..as I know where i'm going with it, but instead I fail to figure out how to describe something. How do you tend to push through that? My next question is more specific to my writing. I'm writing a fantasy novel in which takes place in a somewhat medieval time, and there is a residential district, and he ventures in the the very lower class area. They are basically houses poorly constructed with whatever scraps were left after building everything else. So some parts were scrap metal, some wood, and even cloth doors. The part I got stuck on was "The houses looked less like houses, and more like " So I'm trying to figure out what to fit in...I know you probably don't have the same picture in your head as mine..and if you can't help me thats fine, i'm mainly stuck on question number 1...but figured I might get some good suggestions while I was at it.
