Welcome!

I find having several stories going at once helps keep me from getting stuck. I write paranormal and contemporaty erotic romance and currently have three that I'm actively working. That way, if I'm drawing a blank with how to proceed on one story, I have others that I can focus on.

But it's just like anything else in life. If you don't actually sit down and just do it, then it won't get done. Sometimes you have to force yourself to write, even if you don't feel like it. It may come out crap, but at least you're past the part that had you stuck. Plus, editing is a beautiful thing! lol.

Good luck on your journey!
Rachel

Hello and welcome!

I'm a writing addict, as evidenced by the fact that I'm planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo in both July and August and then regular NaNoWriMo in November. This means that I am certifiably insane.

Something in your into struck me, though -- you said, "The problem is making myself write what I want." Are you sure that that is what you WANT to write? The only time I have trouble making myself write something is when it's a paper for school, which makes me think that maybe the book on bereavement has become "something you have to do" rather than "something you want to do" and you're thinking about all the time because it's hanging over your head, like a term paper that you just can't get started on.

Maybe try one of the story thoughts whirling through your mind?

Anyhow, just some random thoughts -- welcome, and enjoy the journey!

Hi,
I'm Lenay and have been with Sparkpeople for three weeks. I like to write, maybe even feel compelled to write if those story thoughts whirling in my mind throughout the night mean anything. I've created a few websites with attention to copy writing and search engine opti with headlines, etc., and I've written a few articles for Ezinearticles.com. I've also written and recorded hypnosis scripts for my website.

The problem is making myself write what I want.. I have a book on bereavement I'm writing. The first start was one way, then I changed it. I have both of them now and have to integrate them and go back to the first one, I think. I don't know what's preventing me from finishing the book. I think about it all the time, but just don't do it. Uggggg!

So that's why I joined. Perhaps I can get some encouragement when I see what you are going through, too.
