This week I organized my schedule better than usual and I made a decision to sit down and write whatever I could find it in myself to work on. Since I was really frustrated with a couple of chapters of the book that I wasn't having much success with, I picked up in a part of the story that I already had a pretty good vision for in my head. For me that's a jump because I can be quite linear about writing what comes first before writing what comes next. There's something to be said for moving out of one's comfort zone because surprise of surprises, I actually got something done. I'm not saying I wrote 5000 words (which I've never done in one day anyway), but I am well into a chapter and still moving forward.
So it proves that my writing friends were right. Just keep on putting one word after another and breathe in and breathe out, and eventually it starts flowing again.
