I'm sure this is very common, and I don't know what to do only since I've put myself inside a bubble insulated from all but video game release dates...

But what do you do when you find that one story idea that got you into writing in the first place is a depressing mess?

I've been working on it since I was a sophomore in high school, I'm now 28... I feel like time is getting away from me and I still don't have a single draft.

I look at hand written snippets, and it just depresses me. I look at the primary word file, and feel as though I am just wasting my time. Maybe I've been deluding myself and writing isn't for me...

Any help and advice you can provide is appreciated. I'm nearing the end of my rope.
