So, I’m currently struggling with writing my first story on Episode. Writer’s block, dullness, faded creativity, call it whatever you want.
I have a trivial idea about plot and/or what will happen as the story progresses. But I feel like my story misses its point, the most important aspect of every story (in my eyes ).
My story is called Egoist which is pretty self-explanatory.
The story is about a girl who dreams of being a psysicist (more specifically - quantum mechanic; I took inspiration from Mileva Marić). The girl is obviously very talented, always being better than her fellow classmates, amd she knows she is gifted. Other people are jealous, calling her an ‘egoist’ as an insult. She hears it so much that she becomes one.
At that point my brain stops functioning and refuses to give me more ideas. I’ve read some literature on egoism (ex. Max Stirner, Nietzsche,…), but nothing seems to inspire me. I wanted to mix a guy in, but in the end he would be rejected - you know, an egoist.
So I decided to turn to Episode Forum. I hope someone will be eager to help a newbie here
