    No Passion

    Without passion, heart, and soul writing is nothing more than words on a blank screen. No feeling, no meaning, and no thought to be understood.  I have lost the spark.

    I think the best way to improve your writing

    skills is to read. Read as many books as possible and you will notice your mind is able to put things into words in new and interesting ways. The more literary influences you have, the more interesting your writing will be. I've noticed this is true of myself anyway.

    My Throat Ties Knots Around Itself And I Can't Say A Word.

    When I speak of something important, every sound trips over itself until my sentences turn into a blended mass of sharp, confused, jutting, distressed syllables. Equally, when I write, my fingers just stumble around, feeling keys and paper and pen for some hint of the right words...

    Can anyone help me with writing?

    Writing a story is overwhelming. I get caught up in details and pacing and transitions. How do you do it? I really feel like I have stories to tell, and I've been told I'm a good writer but when it comes to writing a story, I choke. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
