Trust Your Instincts

I mentioned this briefly above, but it bears repeating for all of you “intuitive” writers who prefer not to plan or outline.

It’s okay to also trust your gut! You knew enough about craft instinctively to write an entire novel, so you will likely know enough to find story solutions as well.

And you know what? Even if you are a meticulous outliner and don’t consider yourself “intuitive,” that’s okay too! If you see an obvious solution right away, then trust it! It might work, it might not, but you’ll never know if you don’t keep track!
