I know what you're thinking, it's only the 7th November, who can I possibly have the mid-story blues already? Well, that's what I get for powering ahead (32k so far)... and now I've reached a point that I have totally slowed down as I try to figure out what to put. The worst part about this slump is I'm writing from an outline so I know where I need to go.
This seems to be the same slump I get in for all my stories. Every time I reach the middle of the story I always seem to reach a block and try to figure out what's good about the story. Then I get that evil voice at the back of my head saying 'will anyone read this?', 'Is this original?', 'Am I waisting my time?'
This is the point that I need to take a break, and to me a break was getting out with my camera and taking pictures of my dogs running (okay, so that was for an assignment for my photography course, but it was still a break).
Now hopefully I can return to my novel and finish it so I can start working on the other's I've still got sitting around.
What do you do if you come to a slump in your writing? What parts of your stories do you usually find the slump occurring?
