I've always been able to put words on paper and move the story forward. I do have good days and bad days of writing -- days when I write 3000 words and all of them are golden and other days where I write a 1000 words and I end up deleting 700 of them. Luckily, those days are fewer than the good kind.

How I get past the bad days is to set what I'm working on a side and work on the other parts of being a writer. I may answer a few emails, work on other authory things like the description, cover design, or enter books I've read I read in Goodreads (that one will only last until I get everything in). Reading is another way I get past bad days. It helps to look at the way someone else approaches a story to get your mind cleared and back into your groove.(less)
