Fanfic Frustrations

So I think I’m a half-decent writer. Granted, I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that no one else who reads my work seems to think so other than my kindly elementary school teacher, but let’s go with that anyway. I do, however, seem to consistently encounter one TINY obstacle: I can’t plot. At all. I can’t even think up basic storylines anymore. I’ll find myself really eager to offer my (lame) insights on certain characters and adore writing dialogue, but coming up with anything resembling an actual PLOT always seems to elude me. Does anyone else have this problem?! Is this just a sign that I should help beta other people’s masterpieces and no longer even attempt to do my own, especially since no one reads/likes them anyway?!
