My Oomph - Where Did It Go?

Wahey. I've no idea how to successfully start this new novel - I know, I know, I said I was writing again, and getting somewhere, but that was then - this is now, and holy cow is it difficult to get the ball rolling on The Two Swords.

I don't know if it's because of the long day I've had at work, or if it's the fact that I'm physically tired - I just dunno.

The scene I'm working on now is fairly complacent - it's not so much action-heavy as it is emotional-heavy, and I guess I just want action right now.

I'll see what works best.

What works best for you when starting a new novel? Do you prefer action scenes that throw the reader straight into the fray, or are you more a laid back, build-up kind of writer?

Let me know in a comment or tweet!
