    I am trying to rewrite an old story which doesn't have a definite plan and even now I am struggling to find a way. I think I connect to this character well and I do not want to give up on it and leave it incomplete. But I feel I am not giving justice to the story. There is no definite structure and I don't really know which direction I should take it. I don't even know how it should end. It's quite open-ended and that annoys me so much. It is kind of frustrating. I can't think how to develop this story further, and I do not want to leave it. I can't feel that flow which comes while writing or thinking up an idea while writing the story. I got it in the morning but later it just disappeared. I don't even know how to plan this story. :/

    Sometimes when I get stuck, the best thing I can do is do something else. Edit an old work, or even just read an old work. Write a little flash fiction from a prompt. I find once you've got yourself in the flow, you can go back to your current project it with fresh eyes :)

    I know how you feel, I have had this problem many times before. But as Molly suggested I think perhaps writing something else first, however random, would help with getting the flow back. I often think when I write or even read some different pieces of my writing I get more inspired or in the mindset to write as I often think of new things which I could incorporate either in the story I'm reading or another.
    Hopefully you'll be able to write again soon on your story. Good luck :)

    The one that is the one " is so good. It's a nice ending to the year. Quite weird that no matter how many poems one writes, one never gets over the urge to write more. You grasped this feeling really well.

    Thank you very much! :)
    I felt it was a nice way to conclude A Ballad for Death, yeah...
    I worked a bit to make it so and I am quite satisfied with the result.

    My exams just got over and school is over, which is an amazing feeling really. I really want to get back at writing again, haven't written a story for more than a year and I have lost a lot of writing skill and motivation. Also, my mental and emotional state is not good at the moment, let's just say life isn't so smooth. I will need a lot of motivation from you guys, I hope you all will help me get back on track, plus I'll be able to catch up with you guys!

    Whoaaaa those are some awesome short stories. I really love the idea, maybe I should try this sometime, I hope you wouldn't mind :p The best thing about short stories is that there is always a twist in the end and you handle that very well. I especially love The Tour Guide and Back. <3

    my attempt at telling stories in less than 10 lines. for the record, i'm considering it a line when it ends in a full stop[.] or a question mark[?]
