>>7678808 I usually refer back to my notes/outline/planning and see which direction I intended to take it and probably take a few steps back in my writing to help achieve that.
Or if the new direction I'm going in is better than my outline (imo) then I'll have to reconsider the outline and consider the possibilities the new direction might take me in.
If your planning/notes are thorough though, you shouldn't necessarily be stuck in a corner or caught off guard by writer's block or anything like that (of course, it might still happen, but a thorough outline is half of the hardest job in writing).
>>7678808 deus ex machina characters facing certain death? pick from any number of solutions such as giant birds, mithril chainmail, an army of invincible ghosts to win your final battle that you never mentioned before, insert a random crystal back in the beginning of the story suggesting it's just ornamental then make it so that its actually the only weapon that can kill the giant spider.
anything ridiculous will do and people will still consider you a great writer.
