.......I discover online writing forums! Hurray! I'd really love to hear about other writers experiences of avoiding the keyboard/pen. I'm new to writing forums. I've been obsessing about my "novel" for about 4 months now. In that time I've written the grand total of 500 words. Can't seem to get down and actually WRITE! I seem to just get bogged down in over-analysing everything and thinking "nah she wouldn't say that" or "yeah that could happen but then there'd be......" to the point that nothing gets written at all!! Do any of you guys have this problem? Is there a way out of this insanity or am I doomed to an easy life of reading other people's novels, broken only by endless hours of youtube??
