I successfully wrote over 50K words in July for CampNaNo. I’m a few weeks away from being able to finish up the book. In the past few years, I’ve noticed a Post NaNo funk after my 50K words. I’m still writing every day, but some days I only get in a few hundred words. In the seven days since NaNo ended I’ve added under 5K to my work in progress. The scenes are exciting enough, but the words are having a harder time falling out.
Even for this blog post, things are going slow. This happened for me in April as well, but it wasn’t NaNo, just too many days without a break. I thought I might need to take a few days off writing, but I don’t want to lose momentum in the story.
Do you suffer from a Post-NaNo funk? What do you do if you face a writing slump?
