You keep going around in circles, hoping that this time you'll pick the horse that breaks loose and gallops off to to Wonderland.

Hang in there, whether you're doing NaNoWriMo or just writing at your own speed. And if you haven't had much luck with that carousel in your town, maybe it's time to find a new one. There's a pretty cool carousel in San Francisco. This one is in Golden Gate Park.
