So I've finally sat down to plot out my next book, the sequel to Jaded Hope, which is currently titled Jaded Past. And I'm getting stumped. I need more external-driven plot-points, more action, and a bit more romance. I've got my GMC (Goal, Motivation, Conflict) charts, a possible BBM (Big Black Moment) a resolution and a few climactic scenes. I just need to fill in the middles. I know Points a-z, I just need to work on how to get from A to B to C, etc.
I think I may resort to bribing my muse... no sleep, lots of caffeine, food, some good reading and some free writing.
How do you bribe your Muse??
