But what happens when all your experiences are all the same style? Not sure what I’m talking about? Well, I’m a romance author of four books, with two on the way. My dances with love have generally been one-sided or involve the guy being somewhat of the opposite of prince charming.
While everyone else around me is getting engaged or is having babies (well not “everyone” but it feels like everyone) I am left wondering what about me and what about my stories. Will I be forever stuck writing stories about unrequited love or will I have to start researching about marriage and commitment so I can start writing about such seasons of life? Whatever the answer the scenario creates another problem, suffocation of inspiration. Being unable to write from experiences and emotions experienced sucks the life out of my inspiration. It is harder to get in the writing zone and writer’s blocks seem to be scattered across my path whichever way I turn.
What do you do when you want to write about topics that you desire to experience in your own life but the season of experiencing them hasn’t yet existed?
