One of my novels had been sitting almost indefinitely on a scene I just couldn't get past, even though I have the rest of the novel worked out. Given I was dispirited elsewhere, I tried it again, making some rather different choices from my original idea (gypsies wouldn't work - too early in time) and it suddenly worked.
The scene is still clumsy and frighteningly rough, but that's just a matter of rework. Now I can progress.
Insert happy dance here.
