Getting Un-bogged down

How does one begin writing a novel, and how does one keep going?

Now, say you have your plot arc, outline, snowflake – whatever works for you, and yet when you begin writing, you feel overwhelmed, bogged down by the characters, the details, the research. What do you do?

We’ll discuss this in next Saturday’s class in Twinity. In the meantime, read the refresher listed above, and if you have questions or comments, feel free to post them here or in my forum.
