Hey guys! Nice forum you have here! Anywho, I've resolved to write more in my personal time; I recently finished school and as I am studying a field not at all related to English literature at university, creative writing is something that I now have to do on my own time. My problem however is that I don't know what to write about. At school I would always be given some sort of general guidance of what I should write about, and now that I don't have said metaphorical spark plug any more, I'm finding it very difficult to really even begin writing. I suppose a good analogy would be that my creative mind is a photo of the entire universe, but the resolution is too low to discern anything. At least I hope that's what problem is. I know I can write well, I know I am not devoid of ideas and creativity, and yet I spend hours staring at a blank page, and what little I do write feels incredibly uninspired (often borderline cringe-worthy). Of course, all of these failed staring contests with my laptop screen have chipped away at both my confidence at writing and my will to try. Clearly I am in a very dangerous spiral. Do any of you guys have some advice for me? I'd be very grateful. I doubt it's relevant but at the moment I'm trying to write brief scripts for comedic sketches. It's a form of creative writing I never really got much of an opportunity to employ at school, and one that I have always love the idea of being good at.
