So I've been trying to write new fan fiction for about two weeks now. But I keep hitting a wall.
A really hard wall.
It's been years since I've written, well...anything. And I'm rusty. I keep starting stories with great ideas, but abandoning them after three paragraphs.
Although, I've been deep in my fandom-love (okay, obessession) for ASOIAF/Game of Thrones lately, it hasn't spurred-me-on the way I thought it would. I've read all the canon material, and literally every piece of fanfic featuring my favorite pairings. I've nearly run out of Sandor/Sansa fan fiction, although the lovely community of sansaxsandor
produces more at a prodigious rate. I think I've read all the Dany/Jorah that I can find. And there doesn't seem to be any Jon/Ygritte. And no Jon/Val.
So, naturally my response to the limitations of available fanfic *cough* porn *cough* should be to write some of my own.
But I don't seem able to. I barely get through a paragraph before I read over what I have written, acknowledge how awkward and stilted it sounds, and give up. I'm not proud that my writing skills have gotten rusty. I think I need motivational help. Any takers?
