I love writing. Like, a lot. I can never seem to concentrate long enough to make anything out of it though. I have sentence long novels and three line songs littering my Google drive, and can never seem to get them even halfway done. I don't know why this is, but I saw a post on here about a guy who stopped video games to write in that time. I thought, "Hmm that would be super fun!" Then immediately remembered why I don't write. It's like when I get a good idea I can't put it on paper, and when I get something started I just hit a block where writing is the last thing on my mind. I've tried all kinds of music, I've tried complete silence, and I've tried ambient noise, nothing works. It makes me sad to look at all the good ideas I've had and can't finish, because I've been told I'm a good writer. I've been suspecting for a while I have some form of attention disorder that developed around freshman year of high school because I used to love reading and could read a whole book in a couple of days, but since then I can't even read a chapter of even the most interesting book, which is another thing that makes me sad. Is there anything anyone would recommend? I love writing and don't want it to fade away as books have in my life. I'm willing to answer any questions you may have if it'll help me get to the root of this.
