There is always a huge writer's block. It prevents writing stories that I always wanted to write. Now I create for fun 5 Kingdoms after Magic colors and suddenly the ideas flow. Even ideas for plots.
Attempt to write "original" story: Hello writer's block
Magic: The Gathering Fanfiction: No Writer's block
Is this pathetic?
yes. fanfiction is fine for what it is, but you cant write an original story becuase you simply dont care about them. i had a friend who longed to be a great novelist. she thought it'd be easy. checked in after a whole year. hadnt written a single original chapter. but her fanfiction was flourishing.
Writer's block per se doesn't exist. It's just you being too much of a pussy to write. Also fan fiction is beyond pathetic.
Sounds like the best solution although if you struggle so much with it ... why do you even bother to write?
>why do you even btoher to write
kind of this. i think everyone should have a creatively fulfilling hobby, but most of the 'writers' i meet seem to have perpetual writers block. like you're supposed to have it on every single thing you write. thats not how it works.
