Please read this list slowly and carefully, considering not only the individual prompt but ways to bend it. You'll get much more out of it. (Thinking about specific characters and/or listening to your book's theme music while you read may help.)
This list is designed mainly to give ideas for characterization-related scenes. If your issue is more along the lines of "I don't know where I'm going," then this may not be as helpful. While you can read this anyway, meditation and logic are usually the things that work best.
If this gives you an idea, write it down! It's a long list, so you don't want to risk forgetting anything.
Not all of these thoughts and ideas will apply to your story, but perhaps one can give you an idea! I encourage you to modify the ideas below to better fit your characters' unique situation. This is just meant to get the ideas flowing. Let's get started!

Before I start writing, I like to have some idea of where I'm starting, where I'm going, and how I'm going to end up there. Let's say that I want to write a comedy about an author who suddenly changes places with her Mary Sue. I usually jot down some basic ideas:
Sarah, the author: ~13 years old, average-looking, glasses, rather tall and gangly
Ellemere, the Mary Sue: ~16 years old, long flowing hair, violet eyes, etc.
Forrest (Ellemere's love interest) : ~18, stereotypical pretty boy who is too dark and broody to make a good love interest
Leon: ~17, Ellemere's somewhat dorky friend who falls in love with her but is cast off to side in favor of Forrest
Tangent: For those of you who are confused, the ~ symbol means "about." I think it comes from math.
I like to draw, so I'd probably make doodles of these characters too. Drawing characters is a great way to develop th

"Just for a few minutes to get out and stretch," Casey promised as they pulled into a snow covered field off the edge of the dirt road.
No one complained. It seemed like every muscle in everyone's body was on fire from fighting and then being crammed into the party wagon for hours on end. April mumbled something about blankets under the seat from her place passed out in the passenger seat, her cheek smooshed against the window as she attempted to sleep off the migraine that had come on right after they got on the road.
"Come on, Ice Cream Kitty," Mikey moved to open the doors on back of the party wagon, in search of a nice clump of ice to add to the cat's cooler. Despite his optimistic tone, the orange masked turtle bore the same look that the others did: utter exhaustion and crippling fear.
Who knew what was next, or what they would find at the farm house? Who knew what would become of their family? Of New York? Of the world? Thankfully it seemed like the invasion was still centered i
So, after years of living in Mexico, I am moving back home... which means I am trying to fit 7 years of college and life into 2 suitcases. It's no fun let me tell you. I've been sorting and separating the useful from the useless all week.
I've found so many old drawings and sketchbooks, it's not even funny. I even found an old Danny Phantom comic I was working on back in 2008. There are pages and pages of random scenes, character interactions, storyboards, character profiles, flow charts
(When Lari pulls a Donatello on her work), the list goes on and on! Honestly, it put a smile in my face in some strange nostalgic way. But it also made me realize how much effort I put into that thing and how passionate I was about it. In the end... 'life' just happened, and I outgrew the comic... I never got to share it with my fellow Phantards.
I also find it a little sad that it's going to end in the garbage. That much paper won't fit in my suitcase and I don't want to pay for the extra weight in the airport.
This is one of the hardest parts of being an artist let me tell you.
I think I may scan it and share what I have so far... as sketchdumbs.
So yeah, this is my life right now. Out with the old, in with the new! I don't even want to think about saying good-bye to all my friends when the time comes for me to go fly- literally. It's going to be so sad, but, life is about moving on. Despite the roller coaster that mine is right now... I am happy and hopeful.
And overly sentimental. xD
I hope you guys are all doing great!
