I've been playing Dungeons and Dragons for the last few months and I finally have a character that has truly grabbed my interest. I think about her more than any other. I want to flesh her out and write stories about her outside of the weekly gaming session. I get excited about it and even came here to see if I could role play her even if it goes way beyond the campaign she's in.

The problem I am coming across is that as soon as I am prepared to start her journey it's like a gate in my mind just slams closed and I am blocked. I can see through, but I can't reach in and pull her out.

I don't know how to fix this.

I haven't role played in a forum or text based anything in years. Life got in the way of this hobby that I loved so much. Now I can't seem to figure out how to get back in.

What do you do when you get stuck?

Start as far forward in a story as you can. There are no gates if you start your story surrounded by orcs and about to die.

Take the essence of the character. What makes her the most interesting and what you like the most about her. Then use that as the core for whatever world you are starting her journey in.

This is why you semi-frequently get a beginning of action of some kind, or some word mush clever statement that builds into character thoughts and works into a scene.
