Well, Well I Actually Have Something To Write About...

I usually love writing, any kind of writing, because I have a million stories going on in my head throughout the day that I always want to write down. Sometimes they're about things that have happened to me that I want to deal with differently in a story, or just make up some random event. I like having control over how a situation goes and telling it how I see it.

I took a creative writing class in the fall semester of last year and I really loved it. I wrote some of my best, most raw stories in the class. I basically ripped my heart out and let it bleed on the page for one story, that's how into it I got. Writing has always been therapeutic for me. It allows me to take a step back and examine my thoughts. I can usually crank out something amazing out in one sitting without re-writes. I hate doing re-writes, I feel like it destroys the original. Pretty much no one agrees with me on that point, but I stick to it.

I guess I've had a dry spell in the writing department lately because I haven't been able to come up with anything good to write. Which is surprising since so many things have happened since my writing class. I just can't focus long enough to come up with a story, and it's pretty frustrating. I'm taking a writing class this fall semester that's purely fiction work, and I hope that my inspiration will come back by that point.

Suggestions on how to get my mojo back are always welcome!

I totaly argee with you on re-writes I mean I will go back for grammer but I feel also that it loses its original purpose if changing around sentences and thoughts.

write 1-2 pages per day if you can depending on your daily routine. I usually write up to 5-6 pages per day. You can do it! Find your inner motivation and get going before your talent takes a backseat to your goals.
