It's been so very long since I sat down to write for the pure joy of it. For the past...year? It's been nothing but picking up a pen because I feel my duty to my book hanging over my head. I think that may be why it's suffering so much; it used to invigorate me, get my heart pumping and send my mind spinning down a million different avenues of potential. I used to pull out a pen and paper just for the hell of it, just to see where the ink would take me. Now every word on the page feels forced and artificial.

I know that the story is good. I know that the characters are solid and that the world could stand on its own and that its natural and societal laws all function coherently. It's my own world that's incredibly real to me and a few of my friends, but for some reason my hands refuse to bring it to life for everyone else.

Long story short, and minus all the emo shit; writer's block sucks a bunch of ass.

Of course!

It really hit home...my fiance is in the Navy and the second I finished reading your work, I closed my computer, dove into his lap and wriggled as close to him as humanly possible.

Literature doesn't usually illicit such a base response from me, and I consider this piece of yours a treasure.

Thank you for that explanation. It actually really inspired me; perhaps I'll start writing again (maybe when my schedule stops being insane). It also made me smile like an idiot to know I affected someone in such a way. Base reactions are great to elicit, but it seems to be a rarity.
I wish you and your fiance the best. I definitely respect what he does--not easy and it certainly takes a special sort of person. And you must be a special sort of person to love him so intensely. I hope that never fades for you two. :)

Yes, please do start writing again!! Glad to be of some help :)

I'm absolutely mortified I used the wrong "elicit." :tantrum:
