(I hope I'm posting this in the right section... mods, please don't beat me up!) So, a weird thing happened to me when I started roleplaying as my main format for creative writing -- my ability to simply write by myself, for myself, to myself, sort of vanished. I have (in my opinion anyway) a great cache of characters with interesting backstories and premises and goals, and I've got plans for them that I desperately want to put into motion; the trouble right now is that I really only know what the main characters want to do -- who they're supposed to be interacting with and what might result from their actions are just blank mysteries. In middle school and junior high, all I did was write -- whenever I had the chance, even in the middle of class and on family outings, I'd just pour out page after page. I was always writing. By myself. It seems that once I discovered the ping-pong improv that is RP, though, the things I want to write can't be written by me alone anymore. It's so weird -- and frustrating, because finding a partner with whom I have much chemistry is damn near impossible these days. A little voice in my head (perhaps my characters yelling at me) is suggesting to perhaps just lay out the plots and ideas I have for critique, get some feedback, and even if it's not writing with someone, I could at least have an audience to write for. It might help, I dunno. What do you guys think?
