This year, you need to write. The power you hold as a storyteller is without measure.
Pain changes your character. It’s important you know how that character handles it.
Writer’s freeze: when you know where you need to go, and maybe how to get there, but when you sit down to write it, your brain just stalls.

Your location affects your other characters and plot every bit as much as your protagonist, antagonist, awesome sidekicks, eponymous heroes, or sarcastic love-interests.
This is a really simple, helpful way to understand “show, don’t tell.”
