Rejected Hero, Honored Rogue Prologue
Freshman Year, Day 1
“What power do you have?” they all stared at me with eager in their eyes and their hands clenched tightly in anticipation. The class was huddled around my curled-up body on my flimsy cold chair as they waited for my answer. I stared at all of them. Super strength, speed, defensive tactics, laser beams: only some of the powers they all boasted about just minutes before. They were born with a power that none of them truly understand.
“I-I don’t have one…”
They all stared at me in shocked before stumbling backwards. One boy pushed my chair so hard it tipped backwards and I fell to the floor with a loud bang. “Gross.” “Pathetic.” “Get away from me.” “Waste of space.” Those were only some of the things I heard before my head smashed against the tiled floor and everything went black.
Sophomore Year, Day 70
Lunch time, my favorite time of the day. I threw my bookbag over my s

Vampire Description
A creature that resembles the appearance of a human and feeds off the blood of humans with the use of its fangs. Fangs are perhaps the most vital feature that a vampire possesses. In able to feed, a vampire will bite into its prey and drink its blood. The most favorite and famous spot to bite is the neck, however vampires will bite anywhere they see as a good source of blood. This can include arms, wrists, legs, or any area with easy access to veins.
Fangs are also what a vampire uses to create a new vampire. While biting its prey, the vampire can willingly release venom into the bloodstream of its victim. The venom then travels to the heart, and which at that time the venom is pushed throughout the entire body. The transformation time from human to vampire varies, but it has been known to last anywhere from one hour to three days. It has also been noted that the longer the transformation, the more excruciating the pain.
Vampires are active only during the

    Beth stood there crying on the phone, “She's horrible! Callin’ me st-st-stupid and b-baby. Idon’twannalivelikethis!” The hysteria in her voice slurred her words together as she lost the ability to annunciate. She paced back and forth in her tiny bedroom that was dimly lit by the light on the wall. The bulb flickered every few minutes, which only emphasized the depressive atmosphere.
    “Munchkin, you have to calm down. You’re getting yourself all worked up for nothing. You’re stronger than this,” Hershel calmly stated. His voice was soothing and Beth held on to every word.
    “But dad! She’s going to call you and tell you she’s sending me out to live with you. Please let me come! Please!” Beth’s screeching continued as she begged her father for this opportunity. She looked in the mirror as she waited for her father’s answer. Her skin was pale and sickly

In a writer's world, the worst thing to happen is when pencil and paper decide to fight. They decide they don't want to work together anymore and they stay in that fight for hours, days...even weeks! If the fight is bad enough, they won't work together for months. So what is a writer to do? Some force them to work together until they like each other again. Others just sit back and wait, toying around some ideas in their minds as they patiently wait. In times like these, looking for inspiration is a great way to remind the pencil and paper why they should work together. It's tough though, because sometimes the fight doesn't seem like it'll end. This is what we writers call writer's block.

That's my current situation. I have had this blockage in my creativity for a while now. Oh I have loads of ideas, LOADS. However, my problem lately seems to be overthinking. I have a great idea for a story but then I overthink every single detail. What should the armor of the soldiers look like? Should it be sunny or cloudy? I want my character to say something sarcastic here, what should they say? Those are some examples (I'm not joking, some of those are true!). Then I have some even harder details that I can't seem to work out. What is the underlining story going on? Why would a character make that decision over another one? Should I have more than one race? Should there be the tension of war in my story? These are harder questions that I get hung up on. 

When I was younger, I used to just write. I didn't outline anything. I made no webs or lists for my stories or characters. I literally just picked up my pencil and wrote. It seemed to work great for me! Especially considering I even managed to get one of my stories published! However, now that I'm older and I have more work on my hands (my job and college), I can't seem to write like I used to. I get stuck on not knowing the exact details. And when I do try to outline my stories, I find that I no longer am motivated to write them. My story is no longer a surprise to myself and I think I loved when I didn't know what would happen next. It was all a mystery.

I have so many ideas for stories, and I want to write them but I just don't know how to start. More troubling, I don't know how to keep myself going. I keep falling into writer's block. Does anyone have anything to suggest?

I often find myself daydreaming of stories that have yet to be written, and I am determined to write them.
