The Grindstone of Writing

Gale is on Chapter 16 of The Amulet. Every day or so he complains about having written himself into a corner. I tell him to just write himself back out! He likes to use the excuse that if a character doesn't know what he is going to do next, how can he?  According to Gale, the most difficult character to write is Standing Wolf. Don't ask me why...I think he's a cool dude with all kinds of powers at his command if someone would just use their imagination! He has the amulet for Pete's sake and that big wolf likes him and his mother, Bent Grass, is a 'seer'.
I have offered various suggestions...only when asked by the way...and Gale has seemed appreciative. That doesn't mean he uses them!
Meanwhile, I plug away on Saving Terrene Glebe.
