I have been trying to write a short story for a week now, but I have not been able to finish it. I stopped writing over a year ago, and it has been difficult to restart.


There are several different ways of phrasing this....

"I have been trying to write" could be "I have been writing"

"I have not been able" could be "I am unable"

"restart" could be "begin again" or "start again"


Those are just a few possible changes, but I think this suggestion fits your needs.
