Roleplayers and creative writing

Ever since I started roleplaying years ago, I have had trouble writing normally. Meaning, a creative story, by myself, without someone else to play another character. I used to love to do this, and it's beginning to worry me that I can't anymore, especially because I've wanted to be a writer since I was a child. I'm especially facing difficulty with dialogue and controlling my character's thought patterns in order to keep the reader interested, though the major problem is that my writing just doesn't have that 'spark'.

Does practice bring the ability back, or am I 'stuck'?

Has this happened to anyone else?

Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, but I'm rather curious.
