My creative flow isn't really doing too well. I need sole advice on how to write stories withour going on or repeating or getting bored. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
Try writing a few smaller stories and see if you can fit them into the bigger picture. Failing that, get someone to read it and them to tell you where to take it
This might not be good advice... but... Writing excercises and games help... there are loads of little ones all over the web, to help you keep your focus on writing, etc while not boring yourself. Very good for ideas and getting the juices going, all you have to do is find a couple. No other (good) advice. Coffee helps?
When this happens to me, I take a little time off and enjoy myself! Take a break from writing for a day or two (if you can do that). Then you'll be refreshed. If you're writing a novel, like I am, one way that jumpstarts me is to go back to previous chapters and start reading what I've written already. Spend time revising. Hopefully, as you're revising, the ideas start forming. Hope this helped! Patty http://www.geocities.com/10500bc/index.html
Take a look at the inspiration point on the Front Page of ABCtales. Just go with it - make sure you start writing within five minutes of reading it and see where you go. good luck!
