Default I'm slumping so badly right now

I haven't beaten one of my scores in weeks now. Not only am I not beating them, I'm missing them by hundreds of points. It feels like I'm completely choking. Has this happened to anyone here? It's incredibly frustrating. I'm really not very good at typing to begin with and I think it's getting the better of me.

It just happened again. I came across a board where I held the high score with 796. I scored in the 660's

February's just a bad month. Wait three hours & try again.

I've been in a slump for a while, too...still sporadically getting higher scores, but mostly getting 150+ points under my usual amount.

I just came off what is, on screen, one of my best months ever. It was SO MUCH WORK. I can't tell you how many games I had to just back out of, because I was completely flailing, not seeing obvious words, etc. etc. (One of these months I'll be as brave as most of y'all, and play every single game to the finish. At which point I'll drop right out of the honorable mentions and into the real word - but WordTwist is my escape from exactly that!)

Now it's March and I can't seem to get it together at all

So it's not just you! And Razorflame, if you're having trouble ... hollow laugh (and massive props), because there's no help for us mere mortals.

I finally just ended my streak. Up until now, I hadn't topped one of my own scores in about 3-4 weeks. I just scored a 730 on a board where I held the previous title of 711. Small victories.

I'm glad you're back! Unfortunately, slumps, like death & taxes, are inevitable. Unlike death & taxes though, they do go away.

Thanks. I'm not completely out of the woods yet, but it seems like I'm finding more words than usual. The problem is, they're not worth the points that got me the high scores on my other boards. Maybe it evens out somehow.
