So, I hit the mid-point of my WIP back in July/August, since then I have only managed to write a few thousand words even though I want to write. Its not that I don't know what is going to happen next, I seem to be struggling on a scene level.

So, I have been reading a book called Finish Your Book which is about techniques to unstick the middle section (which I don't think is saggy at all). One technique mentioned is writing out of order (and I've listened to podcasts suggesting writing the ending and working backwards too). So, now I'm thinking why don't I jump ahead and writing the novel's final 20,000 words first (which have been well planned from at least 6 months), then work backwards to sort out this middle muddle?

Anyone tried anything similar?
