STARTING NEW ANGLES

My experience in writing, both professionally and in a hobby, have shown me that sometimes all a good story needs is a new angle. I reached a milestone of sorts with my novel, 20,000 words, and then promptly hit a very large wall. This was followed by several months of finding other things to do and avoiding me story as much as possible. I am sure this is not a great way to make progress but the long and short of it is that I got burned out.

I love my story and love the characters. I know how the story is going to end and I think that it will be make for a fun story. Now I just have to get there. So how am I going to get over the wall? I think I might throw out the last chapter I wrote and approach things from a new angle. The goal is to breathe new life into the he story and see if things can take off in a new direction, hopefully towards the end of the story.
