    Yes, I'm writing again. Baby steps though, nothing too insane like a chapter every few days.

    <Professional> Did Some Art

    This is based off of one of the first scenes in Tempered by Flame, and should perhaps help its readers see what I have in mind when it comes to the characters' appearances.

    That little bunch of squiggly lines on the bottom are an explosion spot... don't judge my art skills.

    Not Many of You Will Read This

    But for those who do...



    I've been feeling... Strange.
    About the writing thing. Yeah, that's right. I feel strange about my writing.
    It's not that I don't like it... It's that, well, I cannot seem to get myself writing.


    Is it writer's block? No.

    Is it real life issues? No.

    Is it just a bad case of the meh? Maybe, but I don't think it is.

But for those who do...



I've been feeling... Strange.
About the writing thing. Yeah, that's right. I feel strange about my writing.
It's not that I don't like it... It's that, well, I cannot seem to get myself writing.


Is it writer's block? No.

Is it real life issues? No.

Is it just a bad case of the meh? Maybe, but I don't think it is.


What if I just... don't want to write anymore? I mean, don't get me wrong, I love writing. I love all of you who read the stories I create, and I love being able to create and think of them in a snap of my fingers.

But.. lately it just feels like I'm kidding myself. No, this isn't a case of feeling inferior or anything, so don't go saying that either. Just.. I feel like, when I try to sit down and write, I don't want to anymore.

I kind of came to this realization in my car tonight, listening to Daea Lunae on my radio. I was just sort of thinking, and this was the subject of my thoughts. This strange... feeling.



To be honest a part of me is scared. Scared because I love this and what I do with it, being able to weave tales of ponies with the hands of my soul is something that I adore. Seeing all the people read those stories is a bonus, and it feels great. Getting onto EqD (granted that was more than a year ago) was also a bonus that felt amazing. Getting 500 people following me was a bonus, felt great.


See where I'm getting at? This, what all of this is, it feels great.




But for some reason, I just... unconsciously turn away from it all.

Do I want to feel great? Of course, doesn't everyone?

Then why don't I when I write anymore?

That's a question that I have no answer to...









...at least not yet.

feel it before. what you need is a goal.

I know exactly what you're saying. I've developed the inability to write anywhere but in a moving vehicle

Forcing yourself to write when you do not wish to will drive you away from it forever. For whatever reason, you do not enjoy writing. So do what you do enjoy, and put writing on a back-burner. You may find that distancing yourself from writing may make your heart fonder of it.

AAAH AAAH I can't read this, it might be contagious! :raritydespair:

But seriously, no harm in ceasing the writing gig. It's a come and go feeling.

1684263 Wouldn't a hiatus be best in case CH decides to return sooner or later?

He may indeed. I do hope that's the case, myself. ^^

1684823 Can't help but admit a similar sentiment myself as well. And that isn't Chaotic alone, any author on this site who needs to find that spark (:twilightsmile:) and has to leave for a time.

My suggestion would be to step away from writing for a while. Two weeks, maybe a month. Pursue some other interests in the mean time. (Might I suggest drawing, 3D modeling, or game design?) By the end of your non-writing period you should have a pretty definite answer as to if you care to write any more. Do it because you love it, not because you feel you have to do it. If writing no longer inspires you then find something that does. (And by "inspires" I mean actively makes you want to do it, rather than feeling you ought to. You HAVE to because it is worth doing more than anything else in the world.)

I know the feeling. Take a break, put your stuff on hiatus, and don't touch it for a few months. That should give you a chance to clear your head and see if all you needed was a break.
