Letters from Camp: One of those days!

Camp-Participant-2015-Web-Banner

Well, I had plans about what I wanted to post today, but… it was one of those days!  Honestly, it has been one of those months lately!  While I have all these wonderful creatures to dance and play with.  Having spent time with the dryads and nymphs.  Swimming with the mermaids, riding the unicorns, and hiding from the harpies, the words have just been elusive!

It is camp! Time to write with this literary abandon! Enjoy the journey and travel out with my characters wherever the trail leads, and yet… here I stand. My tent is pitched, I have my hiking gear one, and an awesome bag of trail mix, not to mention the great map with tons of trails to explore, and yet… it would seem that Melody really doesn’t want to come out to play!

I am at a loss! I have tried everything I can think of to entice her out.  Yet the story still sits there! three scenes total! That is all I really have left.  Maybe four, if I want to add a bit more to the framework.  That is nothing! Ten thousand words I figured, no problem!  And I am standing here, like… maybe they forgot me? The bus for camp left early this year?  I don’t know!

What do you do when you are stuck?  What is one sure fire way for you to get your characters to talk to you when they are silent?  Do you have any go-to tools for the silence?
