Whenever I try to sit down and write a piece of fiction I am struck by the futility of it, I feel that whatever I am trying to get across is worthless and it is useless to try and write it. I feel the same whenever I read a work of fiction, I can enjoy it and recognise whether or not it is a good piece of literature but I always wonder about the point of it's existence. I feel that whatever I can write has already been writen before and can guess the outcome of a lot of books that I read. I have until now always enjoyed reading and the existence of books and have always thought I would progress into writing but I am wondering whether failing to see the point of it all is a sign that it's not for me. Is this a type of writer's block that I need to work through and find my inspiration or is writing not for me? Any thoughts are welcome!
