gibby2433 – 2011-02-03 9:26 AM Ok, so I’m still struggling with fatigue regarding my novel-in-progress, but unlike previous efforts I’m not giving up on it. One way that seems to be helping is just a little “break” from it and am now working on short stories. Because this fatigue really isn’t physical I don’t think you should just stop writing; just set the daunting project aside and work on something new 🙂

I’m going the same route with my novel.  I’m over 57,000 words into it and would really like to finish it.  The problem I’m running into is that, while I can visualize the scenes in my head, getting them down on paper has become increasingly difficult.  So I’m working on another project for a little while, and will probably end up bouncing between the two.  This has worked for me in the past, so I’m hoping it will again.
