Write an entire monologue with your main character if you have to. Spend a chapter just exploring the life story of an antagonist. They don’t have to be scenes in chronological order. They don’t even have to end up in your book. But they will help you to keep going.
Because you must keep going. Just a little more. You are stubborn. You are exhausted. You are determined. You are a Writer.
