You never wake up late at night with amazing plots
and all your characterizations are far from your waking thoughts
You're trying hard to keep writing (baby)
But you're worried, your creativity's dyin'!
You've lost that writing feeling
That up all night plotting feeling
Worried your muse is fleeing
and she's gone, gone, gone
Inspiration's gone....whoa ....
Baby, baby--- nah, I'll stop. Are you feeling like being a writer is the dumbest choice you ever made? Are the words all wrong? Every idea you have feels like it's dull, stupid, done-a-million-times.....
Well, #1, that probably means you have, at some time, moved from writing to editing, or you've tried to get an agent or publisher some time in the past.
Secondly, there are a million cures out there. It's different for everyone. Do a little research, talk to a friend, and most importantly,
JUST KEEP SWIMING--- keep plugging along, keep writing, push through it.
It WILL get better. Don't give up!
Remember---you didn't really CHOOSE to be a writer. It's what you ARE, and you won't ever really be happy until you are doing it.
We love you!
