they live upon their feet and they die upon their knees

I am so very stuck on how this character outsmarts a nemesis. I'd go write the other story, but I'm stuck on how those characters outsmart their nemesis.

Basically, I have made the critical error of trying to write stories about people being smart, which means I have to be smart.

*sigh*

Smart is hard.

Maybe they are clever instead of smart? Smart is such a fuzzy concept (and I've given IQ tests and can carry on a reasoned conversation of Cattel-Horn-Carroll model of intelligence, and crystallized vs fluid intelligence, and all the other little sub-intelligences). All of which, is really to say, feeling stuck sucks, AND I'm confident you'll figure it out.
