Struggley, Squeezy, Hard-to-Write Day

#NaNoWriMo LOG: DAY 19 (A 1st Timer’s Journey)
Today was the biggest struggle for words. Dare I say it, the hardest day of the challenge so far...

It can get a little bit daunting to be so close to the finish line and suddenly feel the word-tank running out of fuel. 

Today felt like a lot of brain-squeezing until maybe the last ten minutes, where finally something clicked and I had a good amount to say that I hadn't already said. I think. Either way, words happened and that sparked a pretty great notion that it's OK to say what you've already said in this draft because maybe you'll look back at it later and realize you said it way better in one place than in another. Or more clearly. Or in a way that makes you say, "YES! THAT is what I was actually trying to say!"

Then I realize I'm thinking way too much about this. 

"Work. Relax. Don't Think." I keep reminding myself to repeat those words. And don't stop writing.
