Writer's Block

So I finished July and only missed one day of the thousand words! I made it up the next day too! I'm very pleased with myself and I'm still going... I would say strong but in all honesty the last few days have been taken over with writer's block. IT SUCKS! I've still managed to crank out the thousand words in those days but they didn't come easy.
I have a friend who likes to call writer's block, writer's disinterest but i'm not disinterested! I just haven't been able to find the particular words to say what I want to say. I think this might be a product of writing every day and being so worried about being redundant, cliche or pretentious. It was a bit like this when i did NaNoWriMo in 2010. I found around the half way point getting really tiered, not of the story but just of typing it.  But I'm still wanting to finish this story and make it something i can be proud of when it is. So here's to trudging on through the hard parts!

Also I'm changing the word count goal on the side to a higher number... so much for being over 100% done...
