Craft Tip (YMMV): When I'm struggling w/ a scene, especially one that has to do a lot of emotional heavy lifting, I ask myself what the goal/purpose of the scene is ("to get the character to realize X"), and then I open a *new document* and write the scene from scratch. #writetip
The new document part is crucial, because it gives me permission to play around, to experiment. It's not a part of the "official manuscript," you see, so it's okay if it's garbage!
In other words, writing is 10% skill, 90% tricking yourself into doing the thing.
