I Want to Write...
September 18, 2022

... but I keep running into creative walls. Mostly in the form of a muse that can't focus or I'm feeling creatively drained at times when I'm free to write.

I have several story ideas and I would really like to see each one reach "the end" of a first draft, but I keep getting stuck in the plotting phase.

The ideas I'm currently trying to muster the energy to write include...
Ageless Among Us - Immortals trying to hide in the 21st century.
Raindrops From Another World - Portal fantasy with the secondary world a century or two behind us.
Tales From Lost Souls - Stories based in my RP group's universe (my solo threads).
To Be Free - A Dystopian with an insane theocracy, told mostly in Epistolary style.
Untitled - A Post-Apocalyptic "road trip" set in someone else's universe.

I could try to "pants" one of these stories and see how far I get. Then maybe I can use the zero draft of that story to write an official first draft.

Crazy idea... if I can get a zero draft done before November, maybe I can use the main NaNoWriMo event to rewrite/revise it. I'll be a rebel, but it might be fun.

I also have to write for my RP groups that I feel I am lagging so far behind in. But, my muse can't focus on more than one creative "outlet" at a time. And right now, that outlet is writing an individual story. I don't want my RP groups to die because of me though, so I will try to write for those as well. It might not be my best, but it'll be better than nothing.

Did you see that crazy idea up there? Am I really going to do NaNoWriMo this November? Maybe. That might be my hope if I think I can wrangle 50,000 words in those 30 days.
