Day 8: Come On Baby Play Me Something

Day 8!!!

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?
