For the past year, I feel like everything I write isn't the story I want. It's hard to describe, because the actual writing itself is really good and something I'm proud of...the problem deals entirely with the plot. It's a vicious cycle. First I have a plot that I think I like, then I find a reason for it to fall apart, so I search really hard for a new plot, try the new plot, dislike it in general, search really hard to find another, etc. I'll occasionally come up with a plot, but it just never feels right. None of the plots get me excited like my plots in the past would. I used to get so excited and have such a fun time writing or thinking about my old stories...I was younger when I wrote those, so even though they're finished, they now don't interest me, considering I'm in a different stage of life now. But at the time, they were my everything! I just feel so incredibly stuck because I want to write, but I have no clue what. I also put an immense amount of pressure on myself because I want nothing more than to be an author, but I feel like I'm further and further away from that goal the longer I prolong having a plot. It makes me so frustrated, I'll actually cry. Anyone else go through this slump and have tips on how to get out of it?
