Getting back into the writing groove

After almost of week off from my writing routine I'm finding it hard to get back into the groove. But, I'm forcing myself to keep my seat in my desk chair and do what it takes to keep my fingers moving on the keys. I also followed my own advice: write a journal entry and find the nuggets there. 


As of today I’ve reedited chapters one through five, and 10, so that’s a good start. I’ve also written a new chapter, and material for inserts into several other chapters. (Sorry to say, I'm not revealing any content here.) 


And now I've also come up against a major roadblock. 


I cannot get the company that carries Micore Board -- the material I need to storyboard my manuscript -- to return my calls. Of course, why should they? They are a wholesale resource. I've also called three retail building suppliers and they haven’t even heard of Micore Board. I need it. I want it. And I’m afraid I’m going to have to do without it, thwarting my plan to have my book up on the walls right after the wedding. I'm such a strong believer in the advantages of storyboarding, but if I have to move on without that tool I will. I just won't like it!  


So, here I sit -- trying to find my writing groove and trying to find the material to help me make that happen. Anyone out there know where I can buy some Micore Board?

I really like this blog, but me and my family we can not give you any advice because we live in Spain. All we can do is send them your greetings and best wishes!
