I think all novelists know what I mean. You’ve written the first 20-30k words, all the exciting set-up is done. You’re into the middle of the book, where you need to develop your plot lines and build up to the climaxes you have in mind for around the 60k mark. You can’t wait till you are writing that last third of the book. But first you have to write the middle third.

Any tips for getting through this, other than teeth-gritting and application of bum to writing seat?
