I need help from any fellow writers out there. I finally decided today that I waste a lot of time just thinking about bullshit that doesn’t really matter to my life. Does anyone else feel that they waste a lot of time just thinking about random scenarios that would never happen? I tell myself that it’s all mental research for plot development for my stories, but today I finally got fed up with it and rolled my eyes at myself.
I’ve been trying to wrap my head around a few concepts recently that delve into subjects I seem to be most interested in, but I have a hard time seeing why anyone else would want to read the crap that comes from that place in my mind. I’ve been stumped as a writer for so long, because I really just don’t think my thoughts are that great. I spend so much time stuck in this certain genre of thought that it literally consumes and confuses me. I try to dive into other areas, but I find myself feeling strange and out of place.
I still don’t know what type of writer I want to be or what type of stories I want to produce. I’m just mindlessly wandering around inside my own head with these pointless thoughts and misused energy. I’ve been in a fog for the past two days from a certain thought that keeps playing endlessly in my head. I can’t really concentrate on anything else, but I’m having difficulties figuring out how to express my thoughts in a way where I could use it for story development.
Does anyone else have these same issues? If so, what has helped you?
