So, once again, I was stuck.  Not the “I don’t know what to do” stuck, but the “I know exactly what happens next…how do I write that?” stuck.  Of course, I was frustrated.  …I seem to use that word a lot in this blog, don’t I?

Anyway, stuck as I was, I already had a scene in mind that would happen much, much later, but I had no idea how to get there.  So, instead, I did the biggest no-no and did the most telliest of things possible: I wrote a two paragraph summary of what happened next, then dived right back into the narrative.

Hey, it’s a first draft and I can do whatever I want.  I’ll fix it in the second draft (probably) and as long as the story gets out, who cares if I cheat.
