It's not that I can't think of anything to put down, it's just that what I am writing doesn't feel right and therefore makes me want to run in the opposite direction. This has happened several times over the years and twice in the last 6 months. What it requires is for me to relax, pull on my big girl knickers and face the music. Give myself a stiff talking to and just work through what actually isn't 'right'. Something is ALWAYS wrong. Either I have gone wrong with the plot, or my character is unsympathetic, or as was the case this time, I was writing from the wrong POV. Then there's that eureka moment, when I finally accepted what it is and change it.
Sadly, this time, it meant throwing away almost 40,000 words and starting again, but having worked out how to fix it, I had such a lease of life and enthusiasm that the first day back at my keyboard, I wrote thousands of words. I wasn't running in the opposite direction anymore because it suddenly felt right. It's the 'recognising that something has gone wrong and working out how to fix it' part that is so loathsome and takes the time, but after a week or two of extreme avoidance techniques, even watching daytime TV at one point, I finally faced it, worked out what had gone wrong and hence, what to do.
I almost wept at the loss of some great paragraphs from the other characters POV, but at least having written it from their view point, when it came to describing body language and actions from the new one, I knew what was going on in that character's head. You see, there is always a silver lining, sometimes you just have to look a little harder to see it.
