Part of the issue was just a Camp Nano hangover. I was pounding out so many words per day at the end of April that I just needed a break I think. The other issue was middle of the book paralysis combined with a fear of success and not really knowing what comes next.
And let's be honest. I know what comes next. I need to let the book rest. I need to go back to it later and start the re-write and editing process. I need to give it some space. Maybe start another book.
I avoided Scrivener like crazy since last Wednesday. Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and assorted gossip sites <hangs head in shame> all took precedence. Every time I would sit down I found that I would open Scrivener and then close it again and guiltily click on the social media of the moment.
This morning I got up, made my breakfast and a big cup of coffee and then I sat down and did my morning pages. Then I forced myself to open Scrivener. I looked at the word goal for the day (2,140 words per day to finish by June 1) and cringed, knowing it would be much lower if I had just written last week.
I re-read a little of what I had already written in the scene to remind myself where I was in the story and then I started writing. And I just kept writing. I made myself write until the computer *dinged* that I had met my goal for the day. It was the best decision I made today. I am almost halfway through the book and I have 15 days to finish. I think it's doable at just over 2,000 words per day. I just have to sit down and do it.
