It's sad to think that the last bit of creative writing I did was conducted, besides some roleplaying here and there, almost a year ago. Instead, my time has been consumed by academic writing and journalism through school. I've tried several times - sat myself down, no distractions, for a couple of hours even - but I just can't get anything on paper. If I have to prove a thesis, I'm fine, but otherwise I'm a lame ox. Time constraints don't help either; I've attempted to write for the weekly contests, but it feels wrong. I was wondering if anybody had any tips on how to get going again?
