To get started with my introduction, I've been looking around the web for years for an answer to an endless question; how to end writers block? It would turn out despite the endless feedback, blogs, what-have-you. I've mainly came across one thing; keep writing. - While I would factually recommend this for someone who has that type of problem, mine was not so easy to nail-down. As sitting down to write a paragraph was met with disliking my writing's guts then rewriting. Pressing on eventually met with me getting angry, disappointed and feel as though I can't write at all. The most common advice I was given for not writing for such a long time was to 'give up' because writers like me 'are not really writers.' I see their points, I do, but for individuals like myself I'd rather be writing than other things, I refuse to give up like this. Finally years and an ah-ha moment, to sum it up; People have described me as having a childishly speaking/writing voice, I worried what that'd sound like in murder scenes and psychologically disordered characters. I've thought of the ideal writer to be these super smart, and witty, and elegant aurora about them, types... I wanted to sound like that. Thus, for years, I couldn't write without being enraged, these writings I called 'mine'. Why? Because I didn't sound like myself. Because this was me, acting like someone, something unnatural. With it's efforts and inspiration. Inspired by a strange book I liked, published coincidentally the same year I self-published. Eventually, I decided to write about some kids running around... and my voice came to me. It felt like I could breathe, my writings put that old ear-to-ear smile on my face for the first time in years. So... I decided to join the forum because out of the hundreds or so of websites, this one had people I liked the most; the maturity level, respect, helpfulness without sulking, useful advice and just the people themselves being kinda cool. I came here hoping to use most of this sites aspects; learn critique, advice giving/taking, being around other writers for once. I might start a progress journal. Show my good-times and snags to work out the kinks or what-not, might be helpful to others as well as I get back into this writing thing. I'm learning, and I think the lesson is; A snag is your subconscious brain warning you against a problem that'll grow if you don't catch it first. So.... Hello to all the writers on here. Maybe we'll run into each other again soon. Thank you if you read this far. I'm sorry for the long intro, but my brain wasn't happy unless I did it.
