NaNoWriMo day 3,4,5,6 and 7 fail (please help) #nanowrimo

This blog is titled fail because I failed a couple of days. I mean, I didn’t reach my targets on day 5 and 6 of NaNoWrimo, but let’s start with the days I did make the target of 1667 words on.

I can’t even remember that much about it but I remember thinking I wasn’t going to reach the targets on those days, but made them anyway. I’d been stuck on the plot for a bit until a friend helped me out, and then managed to write again.

Day 5 and 6 were half days for me: I had the Friday off work but I had an outing planned in Amsterdam (concert) in the evening which was lovely, but I was only able to write around 600 words before I left for Amsterdam. I stayed there overnight and visited the van Gogh museum on Saturday. When I got back home at five in the afternoon I was dead tired. I felt stuck in the plot again too. I have scenes written across the story, but there’s still a lot of open space that needs to be filled up. I managed another 500 words before I simply had to go to bed.

Today. Day 7. I’m still stuck in the plot. I’ve written around 500 words, which seems to be my magic -now you fail- number. I tried writing and adding to existing scenes in hopes that they would somehow get me onto next scene, but there’s nothing. Buh, I am so moody. What do I do…?

heyy. it's hard being a writer especially when you set your own deadlines and all that. what's even harder is when you lose all the inspiration you have all because your mood has changed. but still, you have to do what you gotta do. keep writing until you reach your goal. smile. :)
