A short burst from the past with information written in the present moment.
Your mind has stopped working. Now write first and clean it up later. Stop working, take a break. Try to relive your scenes and start in the middle. Start and stop scenes at better positions. Recapture your thrill of writing.
Hard, heavy, difficult writing. Go back where the writing made you feel good; you may have a deadlock and feel a character has to go.
A move ahead in time within the same scene and the same characters. Change scene and give the lead a problem and then reconnect and fill in the gaps.
The focal point of a scene that is essential. Keep the lead ins but cut the fluff. If the scene does not have a hot spot it should be eliminated.
A side road on your writing map, space in your mental outline, that you can not fill. You can ignore it and struggle forward or deviant and write free form until mentally called back.
A film or book about an earlier stage of a character’s life, released because the later part of it has already been successful.
