I haven't written at all.
Since November 2011 for NaNoWriMo (Which I completed successfully.)
I did some editing in January 2012 because I was really upset and just wanted to write something to take my mind off the pain. It's kinda like being emo, except not.
And now, I actually just want to write. Like I am craving to sit down on my computer and just write something amazing.
But that's the thing, I can't write something amazing.
I'm not an amazing writer.
Why is that? Because I'm out of practice and have no inspiration.
I haven't had time to practice, to be honest. This year has been one of the busiest and most difficult ones of my life. There's just been no time.
But, summer is coming up. And it doesn't really look like any of the businesses I applied for jobs at are going to call me back..
So if I don't get a job, I am going to be bored as heck. So I'll have tons of time.
Here's where the lack of inspiration comes in.
Even if I have all the time in the world, how can I sit down and write something amazing if I have no inspiration?!
I have no ideas. At all. My mind is a blank piece of paper.
I could continue my NaNoWriMo novel... which started out as a Plot Bunny (A story that you just suddenly get the idea for and NEED to start immediately). Well I ran out of ideas for that. It has great potential.. it just..
I'm stuck. This happens to me pretty much every time I try to write a novel.
I get stuck half way through. This is the third novel in a row this happened to with me.
I am so jealous of all of you who have all actually finished writing a novel. I've been so close, but also so far.
PLEASE! Anyone! Has this ever happened to you? You try to write something and when you are about half way through, you just don't know what to make happen anymore? You're just stuck with a blank head?
Is there a cure for this? A way to get past it? I need help!
If I actually want to be a published author some day I need to figure out a way!
How can I ever be as amazing as my heroes Markus Zusak, John Green, Sara Shepard, or Sarah Ockler if I can't even finish a novel?!
I want to write more than anything. It's my passion and I adore it. Writing is beautiful.
I have so much I want to say, so many emotions I want to convey, situations I want to describe, and characters I want to develop.
But, how can I do it if I can't get past this writer's block?
But this isn't ordinary writers block, because it has happened to me three books in a row and it's the same thing every time.
My plots never have an ending because I am unable to create them.
|This quote from The Fault In Our Stars by John Green is me exactly. I have so many ideas but I can never form them into anything.|
Please, someone help me, I beg of you. Any knowledge or advice you could give me would be extremely appreciated.I'm really afraid I'm not going to be able to break out of this.
Especially since Inkpop is gone now. Inkpop was my summer getaway for the past two summers.. and now.. *holds back tears.
I actually had writing friends on there. I had a small reputation, and it was important to me. I worked for two years and now it's all gone.
I have like no writing friends now.
Wanna be my writing friend? I need some.
Inkpop inspired me to write a lot. I don't really want to convert to Figment.. I don't like it. It's not our Inkpop. Our home.
I liked being able to go online and read other people's work and leave critiques, and have critiques left for me. Those critiques helped me so much.
And I'm pretty sure they are all gone now.
Have any of you Inkies converted to Figment? Should I give it a try?
Please, I am begging. I need some help.
