The Black Hole Of Pantser

I've found it helps to just push ahead and write *something*, even if you know you're going to have to come back and rewrite.

This approach works wonders for me. By telling myself it’s just a placeholder scene, it takes a lot of the pressure off and unclogs my creative juices. Then, two out of three times, what I end up with isn’t total garbage after all!
My trouble isn't getting out of the black hole, it's getting out with the correct book! It's a matter of Pants pants pants pants waaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Oh dear, black hole. What's that light? Oh it's a train, related to a different book. *grab* pants pants pants pants Waaaahhhh... *rinse and repeat*

Next thing I know, there are all these half written books needing completion... Happily I am almost through a trilogy without a black hole at the moment. Let's hope I didn't just jynx it!
