    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 :)

    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!

    Welcome back :)
    I'm sure you can get back on the writing track, it might take a little time but new inspiration can often come out of nowhere at anytime.

    3 am, high on Red Bull, studying for my History exam, I have this sudden urge to write a story. Inspiration pours from my mind like opening the door of a submarine while drowned in Mariana trench. What happens to this inspiration when I am so idle to kill mosquitos like a ninja? Instead of dreaming in sleep, I dream with open eyes that stare blankly into the black and white characters of my textbook, searching for a place in the ancient maps equal to searching nothing as I do nothing but wander off within the depths of an ancient land that doesn't exist anymore- like my dreams. I have dreams but they are no dreams to be fulfilled. Instead of writing what I want at the moment, I satisfy my thirst with this short piece of nothingness that I didn't plan on writing. This urge of creativity is a weird thing, always knocking at my door at the wrong time.

    mumbled "Questions, questions, question..."

    I recently finished reading this amazing Webtoon comic Annarasumanara, and it got me thinking about a lot stuff in life. It's a really thought provoking story about life and magic, and beauties of childhood. When I was younger, only two or three years back, i lived in a certain wonderland of my own. The way I used to look at world was different, everything was different actually. I used to believe in some power called Hope, I used to believe in magic and ghosts and aliens and mystical creatures. I felt that there might be some corner of this world magic exists, and where witches might exist. Most of all...I felt that I am someone special, that I am the center of this big world, that I am some 'chosen one' like in all the fantasy stories I have read and heard, that I am going to be something big when I grow up, someone really strong and invincible who everyone would look up to, I thought I'll be a hero when I grow up. There were endless possibilities for me in that tiny young brain I had , and I never I'd grow up like this. Right now, I have somehow lost all that hope and that belief I had in the universe. It's as if the the more your brain expands to occupy your growing body, the less you have faith in the magic in the world. The spaces in your brain are as empty as your emotions, and the world shapes you up to become some kind of a puppet to move in its direction. I always wonder why our system has to be like this, why we don't have the freedom to be who we want to be, why we can't do what we like without being abandoned. Why do we have to stick to the common structure of society and why can't we break free? The only reason I guess I am thinking about this is because I too stressed and I don't want to face what is ahead because let's face it- I am a hypocrite. The moment I do well in life, I feel everything is perfect, there is a reason why everything is the way it is. And it's not only me but each one of us is like this. But there are always flaws which we only notice when we are at the bottom. In the depths of our reasoning, there are various things we criticise even when we know it's useless to do that because nothing will change. This unchanging and stubborn view of the world suffocates me, I feel trapped, claustrophobic in this open wide world, I feel we have no choice but to tag along this 'unending cold concrete road', I feel this heavy weight on my chest. I have been feeling this for years now and I don't know how to take it off and the only thing I am left with is to follow the road carved out for all of us by our ancestors. We have no choice but to follow. I think Robert Frost's dreams were all a lie...

    @[coolgymnastcat] Yes, UnOrdinary is so cool! Have you read Winter Woods and Orange Marmalade? They're amazing as well.

    @[Kinka$h] No I wasn't talking about caste system specifically but the structure of society in the world in general. The way the world works, that is, complete your education under the education system which was actually made to suit the needs of the Industrial Age, and then get a job which gives you maximum amount of money because no matter how someone says money doesn't bring happiness, money would be the main thing bringing you happiness. I just don't feel FREE you know, Free to do anything without thinking how much money I am getting in it so I can have a high holding in society. I want to do a lot of things but have to eventually excel in one thing so I can EARN, that just makes me feel trapped and makes me wonder why can't I do everything I want.

    But Kinny, never give up, I know that you are very capable and will find out a way... I hope things turn out fine for you soon.
