The 10 Types of Writers' Block (and How to Overcome Them) #4 was a really common event in my undergrad screenwriting classes (where it was commonly called the Page 70 Problem or the Act 2 Dead Zone or some other ridiculous name).

The 10 Types of Writers' Block (and How to Overcome Them)

It is really where outlining-as-you-go can prevent problems. For instance, I might have a ten point outline for the whole story and as I catch up to various points I may go back over the outline and flesh out points with another outline.

Visual Thinking Evolution

Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common,[1] but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing. The elements of a given mind map are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts, and are classified into groupings, branches, or areas, with the goal of representing semantic or other connections between portions of information. Mind maps may also aid recall of existing memories. Brainstorm and mind map online. Beautiful Word Clouds. Cure writer's block with writing prompts - writing tips character name generator. Untitled.
