I haven't posted anything for some time. The reason is simple: I've run out of ideas that appeal to me. I have six unfinished stories and lack both the motivation and inspiration to finish them. With two or three of them, I know how I want them to go, but I still haven't got the drive to complete them.
On top of that, my editors are seeing what I'm seeing. The stories are all "of a kind." I keep hoping I'll find some inspiration in other writer's work, but so far, nothing has clicked. I know I'm not alone with this problem. I've read (and heard) from other writers that they are suffering the same problem. I've posted nearly seventy stories and it's become very difficult to find original ideas.
Anyhow, that's my update of Coaster2's activities. I haven't quit, just stalled.
