Imagination Fail- Block Activated
But is our well bottomless? I feel like I'm scraping the bottom and coming up empty. It's driving me insane. I need to develop my characters' powers more but I can't picture how their abilities work. All I see are clichés. Then, there are the new creatures I mentioned in Second Novel More Challenges. Their powers come from the same place as the other characters, they just work differently. But once again, clichés abound. For some reason, bad anime comes to mind. This has never happened before. It's more than a little frustrating.
And then the villains. I know what they want but I can't see how they're going to do it. The way the series is going, I'm thinking of adding another stronger villain but I have no idea where they came from or what they want or even if they're male or female. Then, to make things more fun, I know how I want this villain to look but, for the life of me, I can't put it into words.
I'm a writer. I can't be at a lose for words!
