I think my brain is numb.

I’m about three-quarters of the way through the book I’m working on (writing, not reading), and I feel like I’m moving in slow motion. I know exactly where I want the story to go, what’s going to happen, how it ends, but the narrative just isn’t happening. The dialogue is fine—if I could do the rest of it in static conversations between characters, I’d be done within a week.

‘Course, then the book would suck.

I’ve had moments of writer’s brain cramp before—not exactly writer’s block, just a temporary work slowdown—but nothing like this. Not where it’s like pulling teeth to get words out of my brain and onto the computer.


Some people who know me might think that’s justice, considering how often they’ve wanted me to just shut up.
