Well, I found the name for this morning's writer's block. All three of the chunks I'm working on have the characters going off to do different things, they're important enough that I can't do them off-screen. (Rather if I did do them off-screen, I'd have "four people did stuff and this is the result.") What is a good angle of attack in this situation? One character is after a lost artifact, and he's looking for clues by borrowing a wizard's scrying pool. The wizard isn't there, but he's clearly reacting by causing the pool to focus on a different subject. The second character is also after the lost artifact, but he is dowsing for it in a likely place before going on to the second likely place. (He does find it, but isn't going to gloat over it immediately.) The third character is after some people, but has to wait for a premonition about where they are going to be. It would be a really short chunk if he didn't wax poetic about it, and possibly I could cut away that part. The fourth character is my Sue, and she's actually getting a break from anything earth-shattering.
