Week in Writing #WordCount

I can’t blame this week’s count on the boss.


The words just weren’t coming. Muse and I were fumbling around in the dark still unable to see what’s ahead.


 FYI, that’s Muse’s expression. I managed to be a bit cooler about it all.



I do know how the story will end, of course, along with a handful of future scenes, and I could skip ahead and write those, but it feels like cheating somehow…


The only way through writer’s block is down the middle. I just happen to be chipping away at mine with a butter knife. It’s going to take forEVER.

  1. The best way past is always through. Keep going and you’ll get there. Also 5000 words is a big amount (almost 10% of a 70k novel) so try not to beat yourself up.
