 I'm still having the hardest time with writing this story. It's like my brain just doesn't want to function or work around my ideas at all. I'm inspired to write something people can relate to and yet... I can't write anything. It's so frustrating. I need tips or something on how to get back into writing. Maybe it is writer's block and maybe it isn't.

I just want to write a story about an autistic girl making a difference in the world. I want it to be about her making sacrifices in her life as well as facing many challenges with her condition. I want it to be about her finding the inspiration to keep going and never giving up, despite getting bullied and pushed around everyday. I want it to inspire both NTs and autistic people.

That's all I want but I just don't know how to put it into a story and make it work. My mind feels like it's dead and short of any ideas. I thought of her being a peace-loving vegetarian but I think that might be a bit much for her so I might have her be just a vegetarian. D: Her true goal is to make a difference in the world and help people understand her condtiion. She wants to be an inspiration to others.

Sometimes it helps to write little things instead of trying for a whole story, or an episode if you like the idea of a continuing character.

One time in college, I found a girl in a wheelchair stuck in a bathroom, and had to help her get out. I was pissed enough that, with the garbage can where it was, the door would open to let her in but not out again. And then she mentioned that several other women *walked away* when they discovered she was stuck in there. So maybe look for a situation where your character can and will do something that other people are walking away from.
