I Am Trying To Write A Book

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 350 People

    I have had this idea

    for a book for about a year or so. It's about a future apocalyptic event (no zombies,) and at least partly about mankind's reaction to the news of the event. The event will be something like an asteroid on the way to earth, but we have 50 - 75 years, or more, to prepare for it.

    It's What I Do

    Whenever I'm bored, or upset, or whenever I'm suddenly struck with inspiration, I turn to my pencil, and I write. Lately I've been focusing on a few different stories. I'm seriously considering turning these into novels, but I honestly have no idea if they're going to make it...

    Ugh...

    Writer's block.... big time. And not the block where you don't know what to write. The block where you have an idea but can't put it on paper. That block is worse I think. Becuase at least if you have the block where you don't have any idea what to write then you at least have an...
