I’ve been working with bullet lists, which I learned while getting my BA. Write down everything that happens in a chapter that absolutely NEEDS to happen. (i.e. Character gets dressed; character goes down to eat breakfast; character sees Ch B in kitchen; they talk about subject). When you have that, add small things that bring life to your story. Maybe something funny happens on their way to work that they think about later on. Maybe they see somebody they know and consider talking to them. Why or why not? But try to keep the action going that can move your story along while entertaining the reader at the same time so they don’t even notice if the chapter is long. The goal is to write something that is simultaneously important to YOU, the writer, and engaging for THEM, the reader. Once all the bullets are done, write the chapter based off of them, like a connect-the-dots kind of thing, and then edit afterwards, if need be, but never WHILE you are writing it.
It sound difficult and tedious, I know, but this really helped me through college with my CWR major and it’s the method I’m using this month to write my novel. Just hang in there, do your best, and everything will be fine
