Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

ODeck Writers!

How do you get past a really tough section that you are writing? The scene I am working on suddenly takes a violent twist. I've written violence before, but for some reason this one is really pushing my buttons. Do other people have this problem? I find myself saying 'I am going to write at least X amount today' then find myself browsing online (or posting to ODeck).

If you have this problem, how do you get past it? Should I just grit my teeth and push myself over the hump? That isn't too easy to do, because the aftermath is going to suck too. Do I need to invest in therapy? Maybe I should just invest in a few bottles of wine instead. Share your wisdom with me, O Mighty Writers!
