Writer's Block - The advice of HG Wells

I had an email from a writer yesterday who was stuck on a novel. As so many writers find, starting a story is often the easy part but then sometimes you are faced with a dilemma about what to do next, how to take your idea or plot further or the characters you have created have other ideas for your story or no longer fit in with your original plan.

If you are ever stuck like this, the advice of HG Wells could be useful

‘If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise: attack it at an hour when it isn’t expecting it.’

By doing so - and sitting down not quite knowing what you are going to write - interesting ideas can suddenly occur.
