So all last week I was going like gangbusters. Truly! I mean the words were totally flowing and I was feeling good.
This week, I've somehow wandered into a bit of a dry spot. It's not that I don't feel like writing. I do. But the words don't seem to come, like opening a water spigot but nothing comes out. Has this ever happened to you?
I am still at the tale end of the my novel's set-up, and I am anxious to get into the meat of the story--so that's a possible contributor. But I also wonder if I've just pushed too hard. Last week my daily goal was 4k a day, which is a lot, and I came pretty close to hitting it--if you count in the 2k I accidentally erased on Tuesday and some unanticipated work obligations that popped up on Friday.
But there's no choice, is there? Gotta keep plugging away--which of course is one of the virtues of NaNo.
How 'bout you? How goes your writing? Any pointers for getting out of dry spots?
