I am not one of those lucky people who start out gangbusters--it always takes a while for my novel to get going. By the 15th, everything will be different, I'll be in the meat of my story and creative as all get out. But right now, in the beginning, I'm just trying to get characters from point A to point B so that the real drama of the story can begin.
It's always like this for me; I know it will get better; but ugh! I sometimes write out of order (doing later scenes early in the month rather than waiting to "get" to them in the context of the story), but not this year.
Just wanted to let people know that not everyone is lucky enough (or the type of writer) to start out easy. For some of us, we don't get to "easy" until the end of the month approaches.
Anyone else struggling with this problem? Tonight, my goal was just to crank out the next 500 words, because that was all I could even imagine doing today.----------
