Coming Off a Mini-Block

I’ve coming off of approximately a week, maybe more, where I just couldn’t put a word down. It’s been a long time since I’ve had any kind of writer’s block problem. I would sit and type a line here, delete a line I hated there, but couldn’t get into the story or the characters and would go and read Downton Abbey fanfiction instead.

I felt unmotivated and a bit bored with the story, too. And I couldn’t seem to come up with anything to jog a blog post out of me. Part of this lack of motivation stems from the lovely autumn allergies I’ve been encountering as we head toward the official start of fall, part from scheduling at work, and the rest of it was just disinterest.

I managed to write a whole page last night, though, so I guess I’m coming through this mini-block.

I introduced a new character who grows in importance as we go on. Introducing new characters are always amazing ways of getting more words out.

I have Miles, the father, concerned about his daughters’ recent encounter in Bristol with a snobby bigot as well as the corn crop failing because it’s too rainy.

And I’m thinking about this year’s NaNoWriMo and whether or not to break one of the rules of NaNo (don’t write existing pieces of novels you’ve already written) and use November to finish this draft. Will have to think about it.
