I have a problem. My problem is that I lose interest in the roleplays I start or join. I start out fine, I will write at great length, but then something else peaks my interest and I leave. Most often, its a matter of not having enough time to seat and write in everything I get involved in, other times its simply lack of motivation to post because I don't like the direction of the story or I don't feel that my writing partners are following my lead. But I don't blame them, the truth is I feel bad because they post and I just can't find the motivation to reply. Maybe I just like to be in control and have control issues, maybe I'm a bad roleplayer and don't want to accept it. I've been struggling with this for a while now, and frankly I am embarrassed of my actions and not being able to follow through with the projects I start. I don't know if its depression or possibly ADD. I like writing, I want to be a professional author. I try to reply to topics I find interesting. But when it comes to roleplaying I struggle, mostly a result of whatever mood I happen to be in. My mood shouldn't be the state of mind of my characters because they are supposed to be someone else, so I may be using my characters to express myself... I don't know. How do you maintain interest in your roleplays, do you have the same conflicts I've expressed in this discussion? If so, how do you overcome them?
