Almost Time for NaNoWriMo

Whew! It's been awhile since I wrote here. I just didn't want to blog about my lack of progress. It makes me feel like I've failed even more.

I'm constantly thinking about writing. I'll think up characters and try to figure a situation for them to springboard off of and I just go blank. I miss the days where my character just didn't stay quiet. And I'd have to write notes to myself so I wouldn't forget an idea. Now...I just struggle to even get an idea.

But...In about 2 weeks, it's NaNoWriMo time. Once again, I plan to attempt 50,000 words. This year seems rather daunting since I can't seem to get passed my characters. Plot, setting, cause-effect, it's all just BLANK! I'm tempted to be a rebel this year, and attempt to pick up my original NaNo project.

I know a lot of my blockage is due to my circumstances right now. Being where you don't want to be, longing to be somewhere else, lacking finances to do weighs you down. Will a change in my location make a difference? I don't know, but it might. But until then, I just have to keep finding other methods to try and jumpstart my writing again.
