NaNoWriMo Day Four

Total Word Count is 4897 so I'm still behind.  Hopefully I'll get more done at tonight's write-in.  Yesterday I tried to push through a scene and it didn't quite work.

Do you ever try and write a scene which is easy to visualise in your head, but describing it takes so long it seems to go on forever and lose all its immediacy?

That happens to me a lot. Either I spend too much time framing something that doesn't seem to merit it, or blast through a scene in half a page.

Absolutely. That's what got me stuck on last year's NaNo. I'd been seeing the scene in my head for a month and wanted to get down all the details. And it didn't seem as interesting as it was in my head. It was completely frustrating!
