For years. I have wanted to be a writer, like legit writer of a newspaper article, or a magazine, or advice column. But the thing I really want is to write a novel. I am a big time reader, I can finish a 1,000 page book in less than 6 hours, but writing…. ohh boy. I just can’t seem to write anything. I sit at my computer trying to figure out what I wanna write about. and I sit and stare at a blank document watching the little line blink, waiting for me to press a key….. until I finally give up and forget about it for a few months. What can I do to get my thoughts to turn in to a freaking story? what am I doing wrong? why can’t I make it work???
