Reading this interview from one of the directors of Battlestar Galactica taught me something without even trying: Each and every thing on this planet holds a story. It seems simple but sometimes I need to be reminded.

Getting caught up in the day to day grind means sometimes you don't stop to think beyond what you see and get down to the reasons for everything. I've been guilty of this more than once, but when you're trying to tell a story, you can't afford not to think about the whys. Part of the reason the story I'm writing has meaning to me is because I have personal experience in dealing with schizophrenics because of my uncle, and growing up that made a huge impression on me. The challenge now is making that resonate in the novel, and it's why the way I'm writing the story may change now. It's been a bit of a breakthrough, I finally understand why it's so important to me to be writing this particular story at this point in time, instead of all the other ones that have passed through my mind.

Having made the breakthrough I did earlier, I came up with a section of the novel that I really did like. I finally connected to it and came up with something that worked.
Also, I stopped trying to write chronologically and just went where the muse was leading me. It went surprisingly well, I got a lot of writing done in a short amount of time.
