    Keep up the good work! It is hard to keep motivated when that writing doesn't flow, but it sounds like you have some good strategies for breaking through. Have you been part of the Nanowrimo challenges? I tried it one year, and got a lot of writing done. But usually, November is one of the busiest month of the year at my work, so I haven't been able to repeat it.
    Total paid/saved: $82 600
    Total goal 2019: $12 200 done ($39 300 to go)
    Total goal: $272 900
    To do: $190 300

    Thanks. No, I haven't done Nanowrimo. Never really felt the urge to do it. Right now, it's a case of "Butt in Chair" that works for me, even I end up with only a few hundred words each session. That's one of the reasons why I like the Sunday write-in sessions. I have most of the day to both look at the internet and focus on writing.

    Eventually, I may try Nanowrimo.

    I've done Nano a couple times. The last time was a huge help in getting most of of a rough draft done that had been vexing me for years. Nothing motivates like a deadline, and with the time constraint, I had no choice but to blast through the hard parts.

    My favorite Nano song:

    Actually, Errol has a bunch of great Nano song parodies.
