NaNoWriMo Day 3

Not much progress, if not to say none. The day started out pretty well, but as soon as I tried to write anything down, my muse deserted me. Maybe it's also the changes in the meds that are affecting my concentration as it's even worse than usual. I can't think at all :-/ I did manage to do some work on my outline, having now a clearer idea of what is going to happen in my story. Only I'm finding out that I'm pretty much stranded if I don't outline by scene or pre-write like I normally do. I have gotten so used to the snowflake method that I'm having a hard time working without it. I'm starting to wonder why I ever thought going on-the-fly so to speak was a good idea. The rationale was that I had not so much fun at my last two NaNos in 2007 and 2008 when I used to snowflake method to write my story as I had in previous years. Sure in some of these years, 2005 I think it was my story ended up entirely non-sensical with plot holes big enough to drive the Voyager through, but I did have fun. Anyhow, I'll try to get some words down by tonight even if it's only more planning. I hope that will then help me to get more out of tomorrow.
