Now, let me make something clear right away - I'm not suffering from writer's block at this moment (knocks on near-by piece of wood), I am suffering through 'writer's hurdle'. Writer's hurdle shall be defined as "The failure to resolve a single plot point and thus brings the writing to a complete halt".
While laboring on my WIP I have tripped over this hurdle before. I cleared it with room to spare. But this time my brain keeps telling me "That doesn't make sense, you porridge-head!" I am not finding this encouraging. I have tried to take a step back and let the ideas flow in but so far I keep coming up against the same hurdle.
The agony is the fact I'm so close to finishing I can smell it. I know all I need to do is resolve this one point and everything will fall into place. I keep waiting for the bright idea to arrive with a 'ping' but this has not occurred.
I'm really hoping that writing about it will cue the ping. Or the pong. At this point any noise will do.
