The scene-listing trick has been employed.
Much like a back-up parachute, it is something one never plans to use.
Listing the scenes in a novel, both written and yet-to-be written, is my last ditch maneuver in jumpstarting a stalled project. Seeing on paper what exactly is left to be done on a book never ceases to ignite the “Let’s get this bad boy done!” fire in me. Show me a finish line and I’ll grind my hands and knees to the bone crawling to it.
Bottom line: Know your last ditch tricks… and use them.
