State of writing 
2nd-Jun-2009 09:30 am
I'm currently in a state of depression in terms of writing. That's why I haven't posted much lately. It isn't from lack of ideas or inspiration. I already have the plot of my current story and I know the scenes that need to be written. My fingers are still busy typing out words but I'm not satisfied with anything that I've written. Everything seems flat.

How did I get to this point? I spent time researching the craft of writing, trying to get some pointers and ideas in order to grow and improve. But the only thing that seems to have done is cause me to see all the flaws in my writing and makes me wonder why anyone would read it =P

If I go back to writing the way I do normally, its fine and the words come easily again. But try to focus on different ideas, such as trying to 'show' more than 'tell' and everything grinds out to a boring halt. Grrr. I'm sure that this will eventually get sorted out but at the moment, I'm in a funk.

Thanks for the encouragement and the suggestions. There are areas I am good at but many that I'm not. It's those areas I'm trying to work on but it seems to have derailed me a bit. I'll have to keep plugging away and hopefully it will get sorted out soon.
