Where’s my motivation?

I hate to say this, but I’ve been having an increasingly difficult time in writing my Nanowrimo novel. Just last week I was excited about any progress on my novel, but this week it’s taken all that’s in me to sit down and write more. I think it may be because I’m at a slow part of my novel; I’m about halfway done with it and the meat in the middle is always the hardest to go through. I’m hoping that I can plod along through this part of the story now, and then later on when I get closer to the conclusion the words will be flying off the keyboard once again. I hate not feeling motivated to write, and I hate thinking about it as a chore. However, I knew this point would come up in my novel-writing progress, and all I can do it work through it as best as I can.

I can make it through this momentary lapse of motivation. I know I can.
