Just as the title of this blog states, I'm totally stuck. It happens to every writer at least once. To some it happens more than once. To me, I'm currently just stuck.
I was totally excited for NaNoWriMo this year. I figured it would get me to write something I've been dancing around for months.
*insert nervous laugh here*
It's been over a week since November started. I've turned 19, I've done early Christmas shopping, and I've written a grand total of 3000 words. I should actually be well over 15,000 words at this point. I should be a quarter of the way through the novel, and I'm only past chapter 1.
So what's the problem? Writer's block? Boredom? Procrastination? What is it that's hit me? What hits other writers in this predicament, and how do you overcome it?
For me, I know that what I have to do is throw away that pesky inner editor. The biggest problem is that I was not satisfied with the beginning, and I am not capable of skipping around. If I can kick out my inner editor, I think I may just be able to squeeze a novel out of my brain.
That's my update for you all. Anyone else working on NaNoWriMo? Anyone else stuck like me? Even if you're not participating in this challenge?
