So, I’ve been attempting to work on my second novel for a while now, and I know my characters and setting pretty well, as well as some of the conflicts and story elements. However, I keep hitting a wall with the actual plot, if that makes any sense. I’ve tried several storylines, and none of them feel right for the characters. I’ve actually swapped genres a few times, and it’s growing sort of frustrating. I truly love these characters and the basic idea that I have for the story, so I don’t want to give up on it at all. But the plot is lacking any sort of “kick”, you might say. I want to give the story an element that will grab readers’ attention, rather than writing a bland record of the characters’ daily lives without any sort of real interest. Anyway, I guess you could say I’ve been experiencing a strange form of writers’ block. I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this, and if so, do you have any advice on how to overcome it and drum up some inspiration?
