I wanted to ask somewhere else, but has anyone else ever started writing, been prolific for a few months and then utterly hit a wall?
I started writing seriously back in February, then from March to June I was pretty fastidious in being able to churn our short stories and vignettes, culminating in an 8,000 word story I entered in an unofficial writefag contest Which I won, not to brag or anything.
but come July I've just been paralyzed. I sit down to write and can't make it more than a few seconds before I start picking everything apart. I can still come up with ideas or prompts, but when I try to put them into words I just loose steam. I tried finding any reason, writer's block, brain fog, burnout, me losing my narrative edge out of isolation? been NEETing it up over the summer after working for the last ten months
I still want to write, but I just feel like I've been lobotomized every time I sit down to do so.
Anyone have any insight or advice?
