The right tool for the job...

Roight. Having spent much of the past couple of weeks agonizing over not having enough plot for Shades of Memory, I finally remembered JMS' maxim on the subject. Loosely paraphrased, it recall it as, "Look at each character. What do they want? What will they do to get it? What will others do to prevent them from getting it? Answer that, and plot will take care of itself."

Just the right tool for loosening up the mental muscles and getting past writers block...
