Writers Block – Characters talking

So, I’m trying to complete a couple stories that was posted and I have the worst case of writer’s block ever.  I swear writer’s block is the devil! I feel lost in my own head.  I have more than 10 different stories that are talking to me constantly.  Characters are floating around asking me questions and telling me how what they want to say.  The Homeless story, Quinn wants to tell his story about how he came to be homeless with his 6-month-old daughter, but the babies mother want to talk also because she feels that her side must be told also.  She doesn’t want to be portrayed as the bad person, but she is the bad person.   The other story What’s a Man To Do well so much has happened that I don’t know where to begin, his soon to be ex-wife feels that once you understand where she is coming from, everyone will see that she has been misunderstood and it is time for her to have some fun in her life, just because they have children shouldn’t mean that they can’t have fun anymore.  She likes going out with the girls, hitting the gym and the attention she is getting is like a drug to her.  She says her girls tell her all the time that she deserves to be treated like a queen and if she doesn’t feel like working she shouldn’t have to because she gave him what he wanted, the children, so now it’s time to do what she wants.

Then there is the story about a Wedding that is just crazy, I can’t even post what I have so far because one of the characters is mad, another one is shocked, and still another one is waiting to be introduced and when that happens everyone will be affected on some kind of emotional level.

So I need to work on separating these folks in my head, they all mixed up and trying to cross over into other story lines.  What a mess in my head right now.  So know that I’m going to get these folks in line and finish telling their stories soon.  I think I need an outline for each story because freestyling doesn’t work for me.  If you have any comments please talk to me!!!  Anyway, Quinn says that his story was posted first and since he has seniority, he respectfully asks that I let his “no good baby mama” (those are his words) tell her side of the story so that he can move on with his life.

Coming soon……these folks in my head will be leaving to make room for other characters that are sitting quietly watching what’s happening in my head.
