What do you do when you get stuck, when your characters refuse to cooperate, and your plot seems to have come to a dead end?
I reevaluate. That doesn’t happen to me very often because I spend a lot of time thinking about my book. But if I’m stuck, then I know I took a wrong turn somewhere. When there’s a lack of enthusiasm on my part, I know there will be a lack of enthusiasm for the reader. So I redirect myself to try to make sure that every page has me anxious to write, so that every page will have the reader anxious to read.
