Hey everyone ! : ) I've loved to write since I realized it's one of the few things I'm decent at - or so I'm told. I've tried to start a novel in almost every genre, from sci-fi, to romance, to modern action, to fantasy, and I realized that fantasy is the only thing I feel comfortable writing. The only problem is that I lack commitment and confidence.I'm on my third time starting a fantasy novel, the first two times I've had a weak plot, and this time it is coming along a bit better. I'm just going to keep rambling here, because as a website for writers and readers, I think you will understand my state of mind. I really want to be a published author - I am inspired by everything from classical music to movies. But despite my attempts at convincing myself that it IS possible, I just lose faith and give up on my novel when it begins to look weak and uninteresting. I have trouble with description, and I don't know if everyone else writes with a plan formed in their mind, but I just create a plot and start and I find that it comes to me as I go along. The problem is nothing that special has every surfaced when I improvised. I also have trouble with characterization...I can't really describe my character until about twelve pages in, and it's a weak description any how. I'm currently still beginning my third, and it seems good from my perspective, but I just keep doubting myself because I feel my description is lacking. But enough about me. Sorry to bore you with my blabberings of writers block but...this is me !
