Garrett Duke Posted August 10, 2012 Report Share Posted August 10, 2012 Well I have been writing one form of fan fic or another for several years now. Started out with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to C.H.i.P.s and then onto the Dukes of Hazzard. Been stuck in Hazzard county well over ten years now...perhaps fifteen? I can't remember, but I can't imagine writing about anything else.Anyway, I have my DOH fanfic series plus a few other stories and the such on Mary Anne's DOH fanfic site (Thanks Mary Anne ). I am on my third story of my series of which my personally created characters Kristy and Garrett Duke are in...and stuck on chapter five since like February. I can't even remember the last time I was motivated to write it not alone know where to take it. Which isn't anything new...writer's block seems to love my stories that and the lack of time. But the past couple of months have been wondering if it is time to hang up the whole idea of writing due to time and other things I have thought of wrong of my own writing...and the many things I would love to change. But I really don't want to quit writing...to quit writing would be to give up on Hazzard it seems. But my series has hit a thick wall with no way of breaking through it seems as I see the same theme etched in each of my stories...just with a different twist.Was thinking about it the other night and what I should do and did come up with an idea, but since my series is on the web, don't know if I should even think of the idea. If it was on my computer, I would do it with little thought and feel good about it...Of starting over. Reintroducing the characters and correcting several mistakes that I have noticed during this fic I started and has been bugging me. Different story ideas. Everything. Of working on erasing that same nagging twist in my stories and perhaps bettering my writing as a whole. I have even been thinking of how it would start...But then again, I had started it over a few years ago as well. And was doing better until I saw a lot of areas of my time line and characters, and so forth that has been nagging at me the past month or so. Don't want to disuade readers, if I have any, away from my stories with all this. But at the same time, I am not going anywhere the way I am going either. Which only leads back to that question, is it time to call it quits? I am sorry for all of my rambling and hope I am making at least a little sense here. I don't know where to go from here or what would be the best idea, so I thought I would throw all this out and see if anyone has any ideas of what I can do with this mess I have created for my writing. Any help would be greatly appreciated at this time. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
