Show Notes for Episode 11: Getting Unstuck in Your Writing
Alone in a Room with Invisible People is a podcast focusing on topics related to writing, revising and publishing fiction.
In this episode, host Rebecca Galardo and author and teacher Holly Lisle dig into what causes that agonizing moment where you realize your story is stuck… and then they show you were to find the problems, and how to make the fixes.
They take a look at the following:
- P.A.C.T.S. what they are and how they can be at the root of your problem.
- How to recognize what it is that is creating the block.
- The importance of character.
- What you need in each and every scene.
- Ways to fix your problems and make your work far better.
- Story Idea, Theme, and Subtext and how these might be causing you issues.

Due to semi-popular demand, I have added a picture of KiKi (and me, last year after she was feeling better post-vet visit). This is the trouble-making guest star that sometimes HAS to be with me during podcast recordings. Hope you guys will forgive her, she has health issues and attitude problems with three other fur-family members of the household – especially when I am in a room she cannot get into, ha!
