Step One: Identify the Problem

...and think I have.

It occurs to me, now that I'm at a certain point in my novel, that I'm not entirely sure what the details of the next big plot point are.

Like, not the intricate, specific details that fill themselves out during the course of actually writing the scene in which these events occur. I'm talking like, on the whole, I don't know what the next logical step in the plot is or what it entails.

This is a bad sign. I know where the story goes after that, but... well, that's not much help to me in my current position, is it?
