    Long-term Writer's Block

    I wrote my first story when I was 8 years old. It was a fan-story about Michael Myers from the Halloween movies. lol Ever since, I was hooked on making the imagination in my head real by writing it on paper. I wrote all the time, any chance I could, about any subject I could...

    Biggest Problem

    this is pretty much my biggest problem. I'll get a really good idea, and I'll start brainstorming. I'll get a good idea of what I want it to be, start writing, get to a certain point, and then back myself into a corner. It really sucks when I don't realize it until near the...

    I'd like to write, but I'm literally stuck.

    I'm watching these 3 talk a storm in the chat ( a live stream finished...although that was 10 mins ago..) They're still talking. I am such a lurker I can't help but watch their conservation. This is prime writin time mang. Dammit now I'm watching THE OWL STREAM. Why!?

    ...can't Write

    I'm not sure why, but I always get stuck somewhere when I write.Lack of concentration, lack of imagination I'm guessing.It really does get annoying when I have a paper due though.
