What do you do when you get stuck?

You know you need to write something, but what? You don’t know where to start, so you put it off. You try to come back to it, but you still don’t know what to write. maze

When this happens, take a tip from my clever second graders (Sunday School class). Nearly every week, I hand them a maze. Though it says where to start, that’s rarely where they do. They’ve learned that they wander in and quickly get lost in the twists and turns. Instead, they skip to the end and work backwards. Same maze, same twists and turns, but somehow going backwards makes it easier to avoid the wrong turns.

Try this with your writing. Figure out where you want to end up – what you point you want to make and then work backwards from there.

Please, let me know how that works out for you!
