Typical morning routine of a NaNoWriMo writer

Writing for National Novel Writing Month has had a bit of a rocky start. But, like many parents around the world, weekends belong to youth sports, so there’s that.

Then I stopped.

I worried. Why can’t I continue? Why am I stuck now, after such a strong start?
