Pipe dreams

category: Bitches & Moans

reading time: < 1 minute

Sometimes I wonder if writing is just a pipe dream.  I feel like I am completely wasting my time.  I have always wanted to do it, but now that I am actually giving it ago, I feel like I am getting nowhere at all.  I have an entire folder of works in progress and, lately, all I want to do is delete everything I have ever written and find the nearest corner to cry in.  

I was working on one that I really loved, but I got oly so far and then it just faded on me.  And now I can't come up with any way to rework it or continue it that I actually like.  Part of that is that I invested so much of myself in the characters that they have solidified themselves in my head and now I cant think of them in any other way.  I have a few like that.  Stories that meant so much to me that now feel like they are bound for the litter box.  It hurts a bit.

It doesn't help at all that no one in my family seems to take me seriously so trying to get some uninterrupted time is almost impossible.  There is nothing I hate more than admitting that I can't do something, but what good does it do to chase after something you are never ever going to do?
