I've recently come to the conclusion that I have two writing speeds: inspired and stuck. Most of the time I'm stuck, which ranges from pulling words like teeth to a full stop while I stare at the screen. I have my methods for working through stuck periods. Playing with my Slinky while I think, pacing, listening to music, etc. It helps to squeeze out the words. But I'd really like to spend more time inspired, especially now as I am on deadline. (I need to get the final three chapters of Faerie Rising finished by Christmas.) My last inspired period I wrote three chapters in two weeks. And right now I'm stuck. Again. How do you guys find inspiration? I've heard Lin-Manuel Miranda describe it as getting the star in Super Mario: for that few minutes you're invincible. I really could use a star right about now!
