I'm in that place again. You know the one - where every time I sit down here to write, the words won't come? Yeah, that one.
I don't know why I get stuck in this place. It's so much easier physically to write on the keyboard. My hands take a lot longer before they cramp, for one. But nooooo. I'm stuck over there, sitting on the couch with my big 5-subject notebook in my lap and my trusty red pen.
I'm still working on the story I wrote about for my The Next Big Thing post. I'm really liking where this is going. I threw in a twist I wasn't expecting and now my poor MC has to deal with that before she can deal with the curse she's under. It's awesome. Really it is. But hammering through it one page at a time is killing me.
I think I just need to kick my own ass and tell myself to quit being such a ninny. I'm in charge here, dammit. And I want to write lots of words instead of just a few. So there. =op
Until then, though, I'm stuck doing it the old-fashioned way and putting pen to paper. Because, hey. slow writing is better than no writing. Right?
Do you ever write longhand? It's a great way to get unstuck. (Until you get stuck while writing longhand, then you're screwed, I guess.) I know several of my friends can't due to hand issues, so if you're one of them, what other trick do you use to get unstuck? Maybe it'll help my muse to not be such a damn techno-phobe right now.
