Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong'. Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'

If you are Nanowrimo-ing, then you already have been hammering out your story for over two weeks. How are you doing? Many people will find that they are struggling with getting thoughts/words/ideas down and may be over-thinking it too much.
The point is just to write like you have never written before. Write with grammatical errors, a mixed up story line and getting your character's names all wrong.
I know I started out with one name for a couple of my characters, and have changed their names part way through. That's how it goes. The characters have their demands and want to be heard.
But, what if you are really and truly stuck? I stumbled upon a blog article called 'How I Went From Writing 2,000 Words a Day to 10,000 Words a Day' that I thought was very useful. It may or may not be useful for Nanowrimo; everyone is different. I can see it being extremely helpful during normal writing know, the months from December to October.
Good luck!
