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.

The advantage the writer has over the characters is time. When characters wing it on the spur of the moment, they often look very clever, while in reality, the author took forever to figure out how they were going to get out of their mess.
A lovely philosophy. Except deadlines.
