You're writing. Good for you!
But sometimes, as you're writing, you hit a wall.
Or you have a great idea, but no clue how to start.
But worry not! Neil Gaiman came in and we asked him for writerly advice.
So: your protagonist and antagonist need to meet. How should it happen?
You can also have your protagonist fall for it — literally.
Try the classic: two nemeses walk into a bar...
Or make them star-crossed. Really, really star-crossed.
But what happens if my protagonist is straight-up about to die and they can't yet, because I need them?
Okay, that's fair. But Neil, what if I REALLY don't want to murder my protagonist?
Excellent. Now, go forth and kill your heroes.
