1. When you have entire days with nothing to do and instead of writing you are reading fanfiction.
  2. When you are trying to figure out what is wrong and not coming up with answers.
  3. When you are eying that stack of index cards so that you can rework your outline.
  4. When you are trying to connect the beginning that you've written with the end that you want to write.
  5. When you don't know what the ending you want to write actually is
  6. When you are writing a post about how you know you're stuck.
Clearly, I am stuck. And just as clearly, I will figure out how to unstick myself when I don't have two critiques and a Milton midterm looming in my very near future.
