Stuck! Ugh!

My writing streak has hit a BIG wall today. I've been sitting at the computer for an hour, and I think I've put a sum total of five words on the page. Time to go outside and visit the real world. Take a trip to the garden store and buy some more mulch. Treat the kids to lunch out, maybe go to the pool or see a movie...

I'm banning myself from this chair until after dinner!

The good news is that you have nowhere to go now except unstuck.

My guess is that you wrote a lot, now your brain is off on vacation for a bit to recover. Usually when that happens, your momentum comes back and you'll get a ton written.

When in doubt, introduce a flying purple people eater into the plot line ;)

That sounds like a perfect plan! And maybe the physical activity will get your creative juices flowing again.

Hi Nora,

Sorry to hijack this thread. It's the 3 rd week of the Complete Your Draft Contest. I hope you are busy cranking up those words!! Come by Anne Marie's LJ and let us know how you did!

Onward.
