I'm stumped on an event in one of my stories, and have been for about fifteen years (good thing it's not my only story!). My character is a time traveler, and he needs to borrow a book to help his companion. Unfortunately the book in on the seventh floor of the library and books can't be borrowed or checked out. And there's mean guard at the door to make sure you don't try to sneak it out. Anyway, my character is about to plunk his magic twanger to go back in time to when the library hadn't yet been built when he suddenly realizes he's seven stories above the ground and about to fall to his death. My problem is how can he sneak the book out and still remain in one piece?

Forget writers block, does anyone know anything about readers block and its cure. Could spray some on ma prospective publisher before submitting the manuscript..she enters the office wearing a white shirt and dark brown pants which blends well against the white wall and black chair. The assistant enters with the coffee, perhaps she could slide an advance from her boss today. She smiles and drops the coffee on seeing a floating head. It took her four seconds to realize her boss' camouflaged garments.
As she leaves to get another cup of coffee the boss collects the mails on her desk.
After reading through a marriage proposal, an invitation from a teen group of writers for a lecture, some query letters she commited a life changing act by opening the black letter.
Boom! Grey smoke rose from the envelope like prisoners during a jail break. It entered her breathe and suddenly she felt a growing desire to read the works of jaus tail and do dirty things with him, very very dirty..
Have a nice day
