189 – Have Fun In The Middle of Your Story

I often talk about the middle of a story as ‘the muddy middle’, but I prefer Blake Snyder’s label “fun and games”.

This week I talk about what the middle of your story has to do, why it’s hard, and how you can make it easier.

AND I answer StoryADay-er Jacqui’s question about how to get out of a funk and start writing again.
