Writing Progress: Getting Bogged Down

Word count: 6350

Today was hard. Really hard. I fought to get the words on the page. It was a struggle much like wrestling an opponent much larger and more confident than myself.

I started by writing up the bio on another hero I intended to use later, and then I erased the start of another chapter. Things became worse after that.

I had difficulty getting dialogue out, but managed some nice description otherwise, and tried to find the positive in all the mess. I reached my quota, but the swamp of words dragged me down today.

Hopefully by tomorrow my brain will have figured a way to let the words flow better.
