Hitting the Wall

On Thanksgiving Eve while trying desperately to keep myself and my coworkers from having to eat cafeteria food, I’m trying to add another 1000 words to my total that has seen minimal movement for nearly three days. I’m not having much luck. I don’t know what to do with them. Ideas spin through my head but I can’t find a way to make it all hang together. I refuse to skip ahead, that kills a story dead. But right now, I don’t know if it’s just fatigue or stress (terrible work week) but I don’t see a way through and they’re hanging there with so much to do or say but I can’t get them to do it. I can’t make it happen for them. This should be easy. It’s not.

Is this it? Is this where I decide I can’t go on and make it worse by making it real? When a story is written down everything it could have been disappears in favor of what it actually is and sometimes, that’s where good stories go to die.

Don’t die, “Argentina”. There is so much left to do.
