I am currently writing my first novel and I am stuck right in the middle. I have a little over 30,000 words written and I have found myself unable to let words flow when I sit at my computer to write. Any ideas?

Great advice!! I'll try that tonight! Thank you so much!!
Great advice. Re-reading your story helps to both assist you in editing or adding more text. And inspiration for the next chapter may just happen when you're not forcing it to come.
I totally agree with this. I often jump around in the story and it's easy to merge together afterwards. I also try to let my creative side go where it
wishes. If I try to use logic in the prewrite or draft, my writing will come to a halt.
I think you're right about needing to just let it be for a while. I will take a look at your hub asap! I dont want to force my creativity. Thank you for the advice!
I have been forcing myself to write, but not my novel, I've been pushing out crappy poetry and random blurbs in my journal. I have pretty much taken a break from my book, but I will try your advice. I do not want to use something as a crutch.
