I have always loved writing but never really been able to do it if that makes any sense. I can make the story, I can develop characters and evolve them in my head on a high level I really think. I cannot seem to write the story though. Dialogue feels forced and unnatural even when I can picture the conversations in my head. I have seemingly no ability to describe things either. Sometimes I feel that I would be great writing in a group. Never really been able to find a group quite like that though.
I've read many a "How to," to writing and tried many a trick. Sitting down and writing absolutely anything for instance. I've tried prompts and timed writing sessions as well. I am a huge self critic and can't seem to think positively of the issues mentioned earlier in the post.
I am wondering, the posters here seem to be able to write without any true issues, how do you do it? Hopefully you made sense of this chaotic post. Thank you for any help you provide.
