Ashley, it’s indeed normal. Sometimes I’ve spent 20 minutes writing and rewriting a sentence I know just sounds wrong. I don’t know what it is but I hate it and doesn’t seem to mesh with the rest of the piece I’m writing. What I typically do is shelf the article for a day or couple hours and come back to it while I work on something else. Sometimes our creative energy is just spent and we need fresh eyes to see what’s lacking.
