Pick-Up instructor Sheriff has a special technique to identify sticking points. He suggests to take a piece of paper and write “I see a hot girl” at the top of it. At the bottom you have to write: “we start having sex”.
Your goal now is to fill in a plausible and detailed explanation of how you got from seeing this chick to sleeping with her. Whenever you get to a point where you’re not sure what to write, you’ve found a sticking point. The idea here is to know the plausible next step. So, here are the key points:
– Write personal, detailed, and fictional descriptions of how you went from seeing a girl to sleeping with her to help you get the process straight in your head, and identify your weak points
– Ask for advice any time you find yourself having trouble writing plausible dialogue or action sequences
– The point isn’t to prescript the interaction, the point is to identify your sticking points in getting from A to B – it won’t ever go down the way you planned anyway
– Don’t accept wishy-washy advice that doesn’t come with plausible detailed examples
