Hi again, sorry for the delay :) You haven't given up the fandom but it's unlikely you'll write more? Whyyy? Unfinished stories? Nooo, you must definitely, definitely finish them. Let me tell you something. I started a fic in 2003 and had 30 chapters when the main characters finally shared a kiss (I really teased my audience LOL) and I hadn't really thought about what to write AFTER this kiss, so I left it like that. Could have been an open ending, but I felt a nagging feeling in my heart. After years, after leaving it in 2004 or 2005, in 2009 or 10 even, someone reviewed the last chapter and said they hoped I would someday finish it. And with some encouragement from my friend, I wrote two more chapters to finish it. I felt SO good after I finished it!! It was definitely hard, cos I rolled out of that fandom in those years, but I did some research and managed to complete the fic in a satisfying way. I hope you'll try it too! What's to stop you? Plus, you write in such a sublime way, it would be a shame not to finish your stories. :)

It's kind of you to say so, but what's stopping me is massive writer's block. Not just in Blake's 7, but in all the fandoms I've ever written in. I hope eventually it'll clear, but I'm not sure what the chances are given that it's been going on for at least three years.

Aww.. that's really unfortunate :( how did you get the writer's block? Is it a loss of inspiration? But if it's for all your fandoms, that's quite severe, I wonder why. Maybe you are under stress? I haven't written in a long time... maybe I suffer the same? I have lots of plots and I can tell a friend like "I wanna write a story in which Blake does this, then Avon does that etc etc etc" and then I've almost described the story, visualised it in my head, and I never get to the writing it down part, because of insecurities concerning my writing and also a feared lack of time - 'I'm working 9 to 5 so I can't just sit and write for hours like I could when I was younger', SO, I don't. :/ I am really considering writing a fic though, nice plot bunny in my head would be a shame not to write it although I'm afraid I will find it hard to write their characters.Anyway as for you Lexin, what if someone asked you to write a fic with a particular theme. Could you still not write it? Cos then you borrow someone elses plot which should/could(?) provide you with enough spark to write a ficlet.

Oh, I know what's causing it. I was put onto antidepressants and some other tablets, and that killed any desire or ability to write fiction.No, I don't seem to be even able to borrow others plot lines or themes (which was what I did anyway) for some reason.

Lexin I'm really sorry to hear that, you didn't have to tell me that... but that's really sad. I believe it must be hard for you :( I wish I could do something for you.
