Hey! Sorry if this feels super intrusive… But what ya’ll are talking about is so true! One thing I’ve found helps me write, when I’m having trouble writing creatively, is just to tell my self: “Okay Wordsmith, forget what your expectations for the story are, just take this character and write it like Wordsmith would. Just let your style flow and don’t care what the story looks like.”
I’ve found that when I do this, is helps me not to worry about the outcome, but at the same time my creativity will (by default) slowly work towards my ultimate goal, and maybe even help spur new ideas on.
