So, you're staring at a blank screen, the prompts and visuals aren't working, no amount of advice is inspiring you, what should you do?
Take a break!
Sometimes your brain needs some time off. Go for a walk, play some Pokemon Go, listen to some music, watch your favorite show, read a book, or take a long nap.
Whatever you do, make sure you take a notebook with you because you never know when an idea will hit and you will want to be able to write it down.
Also, don't feel bad for hitting a wall, it happens to all of us. Think about it, one day you might write 5,000 words or even 7,000, so taking a break, skipping a day, it will not ruin your chances of winning National Novel Writing Month. But, do try to start writing again as soon as possible, the longer you wait the easier it is to just quit.
Next week I will begin the count down to NaNoWriMo, good night and good luck!
