Stop pretending to move backwards, Mercury!!!

I'm starting to feel paralyzed in my efforts to write again, which is especially frustrating since I can so clearly remember writing like I was on fire only a week or so ago.

Other goals are failing too, but I know I can take control of those again with just a little willpower. But with the writing, I'm staring at the notes I've made for scenes, with much of the crucial dialog done, the damn things twenty percent written already, and I just can't see how to proceed. So, with that frustration, the temptation to just turn on the television and the internet becomes too great. Ugh.

And it's probably not a good thing that I've allowed my mind to fixate on Mercury being in retrograde, because that implies I could be stuck in this rut until the end of May, which would not be cool. Fortunately, I'm not a big believer in astrology, so I should be able to think my way out of this. I'm sure there's something I can do to jumpstart my mind again. I'm just not sure what.
