Thanks everybody. I feel a bit better today. Sometimes, you just have to vent, you know?
Something that helped me a bit was that I started to tinker around with The Interview Story Outliner to see what I could do with a story idea I’ve had. Now, what I created wasn’t great, but may lead to a decent outline. We shall see. Either way, it made me feel a bit better. I don’t know if that will lead to something more, but it might.
