Day 15 of 30 - how do you deal with the inevitable slump in wanting to write or illustrate?

Not writers block, just the occassional off day where you just can't be bothered to open up Word let alone yWriter... that's what today will hopefully be about!

I was wrong, it's the mid-WIP bit where the excitement of starting your novel has worn off and the end is too far into the distance to really see right now (even if it's all planned out).

This is usually where I put a major bust up... not just a little argument, but a huge "you're not worth it you little cowbag!" type argument involving the main character and their biggest enemy/bully in the whole manuscript.  This is where the tension explodes into all kinds of fire and explosions so that you can keep writing until the last chapter, but also to keep your readers turning the pages too!
