I have just begun writing my first novel and am psyched how it will turn out. That being said, there are some parts that are necessary to correctly portray the characters and bridge scenes. I have been told that a good way to get past this is to jump to a more exciting scene. Hell, I have even been advised to write the story all that way, skipping over boring parts. If I do this, how will I avoid making bunch of errors? What do you guys do when you hit writer's block at a boring scene?
