Writing is tough. Whether you're starting out or have a few novels under your belt, sometimes all you need in order to get out of a rut, start a new project, or be able to see where to go next

In the past, I've had half-ideas for stories that I've started, and worked at, and found they just don't go anywhere. With my current 'work in progres
