In your case it might be that, or it might be the need to schedule your writing time so you are guaranteed peace and quiet to be creative. Or it might be the fact that you simply need to start writing, period, about anything at all. Fan fiction is good for getting the creative juices flowing. Generally speaking, writing is a habit like practicing the piano or training for a marathon. Some days are inspired, some not.

The World of Hellion House

I started planning the series some time ago, as good worldbuilding (at least for me) needs time to mature. I wanted something that was a little more fantasy and less strictly Victorian than my previous steampunk books, mostly to provide scope for adventure. I have a fascination with how people live under threat, whether that’s […]

“She wondered how Dr. Watson - a clever man in his own right - had lasted so many years without bashing his roommate over the head out of sheer frustration.”
Emma Jane Holloway, A Study in Darkness

“Not that Dr Watson wasn't benign - he was one of the best souls in the Empire - but a man didn't get to be her uncle's right-hand man without a good uppercut and the stamina of a draft horse.”
