Hi... so I guess this is both kind of a question for writers and a question for the mentally ill. I've been writing since I was 12. no, it hasn't been very good at all but...yeah I've come up with these ideas and universes in my tricky little brain. I've written 60 or 80 pages of a full-fledged story before losing steam and giving up entirely. the thing is that I can never finish what I start. I'm never sure what to make the main characters say to sound like actual people, or if not that then something funny to say, or something insightful, or something that's worth anything!!! And I just don't know what to do. Writing is the only thing I'm sort of good at. my ideas are the only thing I get any praise for...and I don't even know if those are decent. my friends aren't into this kind of stuff at all. my best friend is into cars and being machismo, his sister - my other best friend - is looking to become a teacher. They both have some idea of what they want to do with their lives. I am nearly 20 years old and I haven't a fucking clue. I want to write, I want to make video games, I want to imagine and create and direct, I want to make movies! No, I need to! I can't live a life working in some office or factory I WANT to be happy. that's all. I have no money, no prospects, I need to talk to someone. please. Tell me how to write.
