    Am I Really A Writer?

    My whole life has been filled with some amazing stories! I used to struggle a lot with reading and writing when I was young. Then I took a Latin class in high school and my excitement for words got ignited. It was always interesting to me to see how our language(English)evolved...

    I have mild depression

    and I haven't been doing the things that I like to do (i.e. writing). I can feel a story brewing in me but I feel like my sadness and apathy is suppressing my creativity! It's so frustrating! Writing is therapeutic and yet, I feel so gloomy and uninspired!

    Stories To Tell

    I have always wanted to write a book, for a long time I thought of doing a true story, but I did not want to hurt many of those that would be in it. I have created characters for other stories and ideas, but it is like I have extreme writers block. I have also noticed that now...

    I'm in my second year at university,

    and I study television production, and I'm pretty good at it. For my last year coming up, we have to come up with an idea for a half an hour programme, and on our first day back we have to pitch our idea to a bunch of professionals for the TV industry. Which, for a start, is...

    Thanks, Zoloft!

    I used to be an amazing poet and songwriter. I won awards for my writing and could write 5 good poems in less than an hour. Ever since taking and quiting anti-depepressants, my writing has been happening less and less. Now, I'm not even inspired to write like I used to be. This...

    Sort Of.

    I have a couple of stories I'm refusing to write for one reason or another, so really it's my own fault. I've been spending time searching random groups to try and find something else to write about, but no far no luck :/This story itself is kind of scraping the barrel :)

    Invisbility

    My major problem with chp 3 now is how do I show the point of view character turning invisible. The myths say they just diappear (the people and their homes). But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to show that character turning invisible from his point of view. Anyone...

    I Can't Find My Words

    It seems sort of funny to have to write about not being able to write, don't ya think?  Well, at least I still have a sense of humour.  It's been a long time since I worked on my novel.  It seems that life has gotten in the way.  I was on such a roll...

    I can never write really well because I just don't know what to write. It takes a very long time for me to get inspired.

    I have always turned to writing

    Get Out Of My Head!

    I have so many stories waiting to be written shelved in my head that it's becoming quite crowded in there. The characters are fighting amongst themselves and I'm fairly certain a mass uprising is imminent. Does this revolt spell the end of my writer's block or the loss of my...

    I Am Looking For Beta Testers For My Writers Block Course

    Hi all, I used to have extreme writers block as a poet and writer because of my fear of rejection (even writing this would have been a big deal for me a few months ago). I used EFT to overcome my writer's block. After my breakthrough I asked my coach to work with me to put...

    I love reading. I love writing.

    Writing a word, a phrase, or a sentence—sure. Writing a paragraph or a whole paper—unless its for school, nah. I can't even finish a single chapter. xP I've attempted so many times, but all my ideas go to waste. I've downloaded relaxing rainy mood songs (because I like...
