I think it's happened. For the first time in my writing career, I think I can say I am suffering from writer's block.
mostly the result of stress and uncertainty. My main symptom is a total lack of interest in actually writing anything. I have
some short stories that need more work -- I want to do at least one more draft of each -- but I don't seem to want to work
Partly because I think there may be something missing in them. A feeling of insecurity may have contributed
to my inability to write much.
I'm not writing for fun, or online, or just to see where a scene might go. When I sit
down to write, I put down a sentence or two, then fiddle around on Youtube or Google, then maybe write a few more words. Sometimes,
if I really push myself, I might get 50 words down.
Then, a week later, I do it all over again.
I doing about it?
I am trying something new. This means fantasy and fan fiction at the moment, and possibly other
ideas if I can come up with something.
Maye I'll work on some old ideas.
And I'm going to get active in a writing
group I joined on Meetup. Their next meeting is tomorrow, and I will be there.
I'm also thinking about finding someone,
perhaps in this writing group, or on Facebook or Wattpad, to beta-read my stories and tell me if anything is missing.
there are other ideas I can try if none of those work.
If all goes well, perhaps I can make something happen soon. It's
very worrisome when you can't sesm to write anything.
