The Wheels Fell Off

If anyone has been paying attention to my NaNoWriMo stats, they would notice a major drop off that started about four days ago. Unfortunately, I fell into a plot trap, and got frustrated. Instead of trying to pull myself out, and just writing through it, I let it stagnate. Now I am on a five day plan to catch up, and the pressure is on.

This contest is most definitely not over. I am about 10,000 words behind, and will be working to get that back. I was behind by about the same amount last year, and was able to overcome the deficit. I technically work for the government, so I should know all about deficits.

As I was writing this, a few ideas have cropped up that will allow me to continue. Maybe just throwing my frustration down in a text format was all I needed to do all along.

  1. I'm struggling right now with my project too, but we'll get through it. It's November, we WriMos ALWAYS get through it :)

  2. Thanks for the encouragement GunDiva. Things actually got a bit better right after this post. I'm still ridiculously far behind, but I may be able to make it work.
