I haven't written anything that was purely for me in months. I've written papers for school of course, this being my last couple of semester, it's a given but nothing for the pure joy of writing.

I don't know if that's because I'm too tired from work, taking care of Papi, AND school or simply the fact that I have no inspiration because I'm not currently shipping ANYONE.

Don't get me wrong. I still ship my previous ships. Those don't change of course. Once a shipper pretty much always a shipper. But none of my ships are currently around to inspire me to write more, you know? And the ones I AM reading aren't ones I write in: Sherlock/Star Trek/Merlin. (Them some intimidating fandoms to write for let me tell you...)

So what is a shipper to do?

The remedy to this is probably not what I've done which was to join one of the Big Bangs going on. Forcing my writing doesn't always help but the thing is --

I feel I WANT to write.

Maybe I'm due for a rewatch of a few shows to inspire me to finish the zillion and one stories I've left hanging. Nobody reads them anymore but I've never written them for others (though I LOVE having people enjoy them!) and I feel very incomplete right now as a writer.

Anyway, I just wanted to say it out loud so maybe my conscious mind won't block me from getting SOMETHING written. \O/

You know what I'm gonna say, but I'm gonna say it anyway:

Write your own guys.

I just made up my own ship, invented pretty boys in my mind that I adore and want to write stories about. Naturally, no one reads them, but, as my daughter reminds me, I'm really doing it for myself. Try an original story, maybe take someone like Brian and marry him up with someone like, but not, Merlin or Sherlock. Could be fun :)

Good luck. I hope you find your inspiration.

I'm always hoping that maybe someday you'll finish that one AU Luke/Noah fic, because I like it and feel that it's too good to sit as a WIP forever. I'm an optimist. But if the muse isn't there, it isn't there. And, of course, life takes over. I've been finding so many new fandoms lately, if I thought any were in your realm of interest, I'd spam you with plot bunnies to see if that might inspire some writing. :)

I also just realized this post is from a year ago. Geez, that's how often I get on El-Jay anymore...
