I seem to have completely lost my momentum. It’s incredibly frustrating! I also just felt first-hand how much the word count on the NaNo-site actually counts toward motivation. It’s bugged currently, so my graph and “words written today” section don’t update. The main one, which is also here on the blog, updates, but the graph is far more satisfying to look at. And since it’s past midnight, I suppose my count will just have to stay screwed up for the day. It’s very frustrating. And I lost what little motivation I had to write.
It also doesn’t help that I can’t find a good way to end this chapter. I want to move on to the next one, but it seems I’m stuck on filling this one with drivel until the “cliffhanger” fits in more naturally than it does now. I wanted to have a scene to post here but it’s taking me forever to get to that point.
Writing his hard, man.
I’ve also been a bit distracted since I cleverly decided this was a good time to pick up the Game of Thrones book, the first in George RR Martin’s series. It’s an extremely good book, and I’m surprised at how true to it the TV-series actually is.
Now, to try and keep at this damnable chapter until I have something fun to write, and not go read. But reading is so much easier than writing!
