    I don't know what's wrong with me lately. I can't come up with good ideas. I mean they're good but they're either completely full of plot holes/unexplainable things or I just can't sit down and write it. Know anything I can do?

    Keep trying. Not all ideas are destined for story stardom. I have plenty that never got past, "Ooh! Shiny!"

    I know. I'm thinking about going to idea notebook and revamping some stuff. But it's just like...."ugh" right now.
