Voices stop me from being creative

I have books inside me. As well as screenplays and other ideas. However, due to the voices. I can't be creative much more than writing a few lyrics. Every time I go to write something they try to steer my thoughts away from what I'm thinking. Its an exercise in futility.

Nothing seems to help with them. I would have Electroconvulsive therapy if it shut them up. When I was in Hospital in Scotland I asked for them to do this to me. The Psychiatrist said no he wouldn't do it to me.

Hi Funnyday,

Too late for me to post last night.

Have you considered may be combining, listening to music, and write, it might well help you to concentrate better.

Best regards.

If I listen to music the voices just play it back to me slightly out of sync. So I have an echo to contend with.

I’ve been working on a novel for years. I don’t feel I have the privacy to work on it like they would try to claim it for themselves. The voices also stop me wanting to be honest in my thoughts. When I write I have to get to a real and honest level and think of my own history. I don’t know if I’ll be able to work on it while ‘they’ are here. I’m scared they will never go away. And maybe this means I’ll never be able to finish the story. I also paint. I get why this would be hard because this takes away from everything. I’m feeling really hollowed out and trapped right now.
