I'm so frustrated!

- I've written the first 3 chapters of the Christmas fic, but cannot think of a name for it
- somehow the plot doesn't move as I want, it lacks... Brothers & Sisters... or at least the feel of it.
- I'm tired of staring at a blank page, having a lot to write and not being able to get from point A to point B. I've written parts of the story as they pop up, but it's not melting together naturally. Damn!!!! (Sorry, had to get that out of my system.)

Sorry, had to vent.

You'll think of something for the title, don't you worry. And definitely don't be sorry that you felt the need to vent. For my family it's common knowledge that I don't like to read (the opposite thing is with my sister, she can't get enough of books she even reads 'em online) but when I decided to write not one but two fan fiction of my favorite fandom (McLeod's Daughters LOL) it came as a surprise. But watching the show I had few ideas in my mind that I couldn't get out off so I started writing. But having that first page blank is the frustrating thing cause I didn't know how to start. And a concept for all the imagined chapters written down on a paper, that I though, helped a bit. And for me writing on other language than my own was reason to be more frustrated, but motivating. I have all kinds of ideas but someone else would have to out them on paper/in writing while I would talk. If you are asking yourself at this moment where I am with my stories let me tell you that I sort of finished one(it has a possible sequel)and the other is somewhere in the middle of progress and that was a year and half ago. But I am very proud of them cause the parts that I published was well received.
I find the inspiration in songs and it gets me going. Maybe you'll find some Christmas song or any other that will give you more and new ideas to write.

You'll get there, you're way too talented no to. If you can focus on one small thing, it might help - anything. A scene, a dialogue exchange, a certain character.

Title wise, something will pop. What are are your themes so far? Maybe something can come out of that. Good luck.

I understand you perfectly. Sometimes I start to write when suddenly I don´t know how to follow. I recommend you go to your bed and do nothing. It works for me.

But if you need help or whatever you need, you do not hesitate to tell me, tell us.
Sometimes you need a external point of view... or sleep :)

May be review your favorite scenes for B&S or the scenes that have inspired you help. I don´t know. Just relax. Take it easy :)
