Blocking

Or stalling is maybe a more correct word.

Because it's not really writer's block. I think writer's block is when you can't write anything. I could write. If I wanted to. I've been writing in my journal. I think what happens is I get to a point in a story and I...freeze. I don't know where to go. Or I know where I want to go, but not how to get there. So I have to take a break and step back to take a breath.

It sucks because right now I'm in the frame of mind where I just really want to finish! I'm getting so close to the end. I know how I want to write it, but this one scene...it won't go away.

So do I delete it all together? Wait it out until I am inspired again? How long will it take? So many questions!

The problem with this is that I'm so tempted to give up completely and start something else. Or go to editing something else. And that's been my problem all along. Focus! If I can take a short break, get rested, and then go back, I'll be full of inspiration. But I don't want to give up completely. I don't. The other projects will still be there when I do finish.
