And so the procrastination sets in

I'm now over the one week mark with NaNoWriMo, and that procrastination bastard has started to kick in. I'm up to about 11,000 words, so I'm still on track, but I don't really know where to take my story next so I'm "waiting for inspiration" but really, I'm just refusing to think about it.
Last week two of my colleagues who are also doing NaNoWriMo and I challenged each other to get to a word count of 10,000 words by the end of the weekend and, although I made it, this week's goal of another 10,000 words is not looking promising. But they tell you not to be too hard on yourself, so I'm trying not to be. But I do need to write something today. The idea was to write 2,000 words a day from Monday... so technically I have to write 8,000 words today... and I have no idea what to write. But I'm going to figure it out. Today. Because I don't have a choice. I have to get to the 50,000 words. I have to finish this.

Maybe you can help me with some ideas... basically I have a bunch of people who live in a small town, but none of them are from the small town, they're all running away from something. Question is, what are they running away from people?
