I am stuck again in the middle of my novel. I keep writing but I am slow and I don’t feel the usual joy I feel when writing. It is the second time I am stuck in the same point. I have a plan, I know exactly what I should write about and how to write it but somehow, the story doesn’t want to come out. I have said it before, a novel has a life of its own and even if it is coming to life through a writer, it is not coming to life when the writer wants to. I will keep trying. I have reached 28.000 words already, I have at least 18.000 to go. I have to do this. Apparently, this story doesn’t want me but I want it. I need it. It is man versus novel now. Let the battle begin.
This day had its way with me. I did nothing according to the plan and everything I did, I did it compulsively. I slept too much, like 14 hours, then I had too much coffee. Why did I need coffee after all this sleeping, is beyond me. I ate too much and I watched too much New Girl. The thing is I don’t even like this sitcom. This is the reason I decided not to download TV series very often anymore, because I can’t watch an episode or two, like any other human being, I watch like half a season a day and this is creeping me out. I do the same with chocolates. If I have a box of chocolates, I open it and eat them all. Most of the people open the box and take one chocolate every now and then. I don’t know how they do it. Well, I guess I get easily addicted. I should stay away from drugs and alcohol because for sure they could get me in no time. And that would be such a pity for a control freak like me.
Enough complaining, I am going back to doing nothing, now. While having a snack, maybe.
Take care, lovely readers.
