    Hmm? What Else?

    Since the completion of my last webstory in Feb, I have not been able to come up with a new story. I have a few ideas and have been playing around with those... but nothing concrete. I know this will pass soon, but it's frustrating for now.

    The Muse is a fickle lover.   When she’s into you, oh boy, it’s a wild ride. You’ll never have more fun in your life (sitting at a keyboard, that is)   Every once in awhile, however, she gets into these moods. One day you come to bed and she has...

    Ever since I was a little girl I always began

    to write. The only reason why I stopped is because I didnt think My writing was good enough and not to mention that I am good like my young sister. I am not trying to be jealous of her but she can write and draw as I am good at only computer. I hate that I am not good enough...

    A Wanna-be Writer With Writer's Block!

    I have written and published several non-fiction articles. In the past, I wrote some poems and short stories. However, I think my work is really bad. I lack the self-esteem and self-confidence to submit my work for publishing. I have many great ideas for articles and books I'd...

    So I've been stuck in chp 3 a lot longer than I'd like. I'm having trouble showing my point of view character turning invisible. His character is based off a myth and in the myth it says that they just disappear (the people and like their houses). It was basically they are...

    I have writer's block.

    When I was younger, I wrote masterpieces (or so I thought.) I'm at the tender age of 23, and a little dusty (hoping that's all it seems to be) I haven't written poetry partly because "something" has always seemed to have held me back. I can't quite identify with it. I don't know...

    Looking For Beta Testers For My Writers Block Course

    My Muse Is Missing

    I used to write a couple of poems a week.  It's been a couple years since I had an idea for one, and it's kinda sad.  I have been told to write whether I have something to say or not, without worrying if it's any good.  That seems pretty smart.  But maybe my...

    OMG

    Sadly, I have writers block. I am writing this book, and when i get so good i stop. I just cant write. Maybe it's not a block, but more of a "i can't finish this." Who knows, but i am trying to stop procrastinating and just write the freaking book. haha

    Good Mood = Writer's Block?! What?

    Does anyone else have this problem? It seems that when I am the most stressed out, sick or weighed down with school work, that I have the most creative juices. When I am feeling good and the general events of life are going well (or at the least, staying out of my way), then I...

    Self-imposed

    I am so afraid of spending untold hours slaving away at a story I love, only to have it crash and burn in workshops or get rejected via submission to quarterlies, etc. The result is that I put off working long enough and hard enough and never give it a full effort. Thus, a self...
