Smart is hard.

I am so very stuck on how this character outsmarts a nemesis. I’d go write the other story, but I’m stuck on how those characters outsmart their nemesis.

Basically, I have made the critical error of trying to write stories about people being smart, which means I have to be smart.

    You have my sympathies – I have the same problem with the character I’m working on at the moment. Occasionally I surprise myself with a brilliant idea, but mostly it’s a matter of bashing my head against the notebook until something shakes loose.

    Of course that could be why I have this problem in the first place :)

    Hi writers!

    Do not despair, the cleverer your characters the more fun we will have….! And if you get stuck, remember is your world so bend it accordingly!
