Hello everyone, I've been writing for years, but have never been paid to do it (most of my writing has been in fanfiction though I do have quite a few original ideas). I've been in search of a way to get paid for it constantly hit a wall when it comes to the money/connections part of it. The reason why this is important to the inspiration aspect of it, is because I've come to a point where the main driving force behind my writing just isn't enough to get me to finish a story anymore. When I first started writing, it was a cathartic process for me. I wrote to deal with personal issues in my life and it really helped. But I've worked through most of it and I suppose now I'm searching for a new reason to write and I have yet to figure out what that reason is, though I suspect money and/or a "creative director/partner" will do the trick. Anyway, I'd be curious to know whether anyone else has experienced this problem and what they've done to overcome it, if they have. Also, anyone with the time and passion to assist in the writing process would be greatly appreciated.
