Troubleshooting mythography

From my time at the Cauldron, I know that at least some people here have either invented or pieced together the mythos of their paths rather than using an extant one wholesale. That is to say, they engage in mythography, the writing of myths–and as that’s something I increasingly feel the need to do myself, I’m curious about the process. My own success with it has been touch and go so far.

A few specific questions: how do you know what you’ve written is what your Powers want? How do you write around the missing pieces so you can fill them in later when you figure them out? How do you overcome writer’s block here of all places?

Beyond that, more generally–when creating or stitching together your own theogonies, cosmologies, and general myths, what works for you and what doesn’t?
