Friday Fiction Feed - Setting Upheaval

This week's Friday Fiction Feed goes out to everyone who is currently stuck with their book, and don't know what to write next.

If you are stuck, it can be good to go to a new location. This can be a big change--going on vacation to Barbados, or moving from California to Wisconsin. But this can be a small move, like changing the scene to school or work or home (see my recent posts about Settings for some ideas!). People change in a new setting, and those changes can start screwing things loose and get the plot moving again.

So take that scene you're stuck in and set it somewhere else. Change to Mars! To a friend's house! But go somewhere else, and see if that helps.
