Or am I?
I do! Every tune I write itches for a good melody line, but when I try and write one it sounds just the same as the last one I wrote, and is deadly boring and annoying.

You're getting the same effect with your melodies.
Its only boring to you because you know where it came from - to everyone else it is a magic incantation.
I reckon your "subconscious melody writer" is afraid to let the really amazing stuff out because your "big clumsy clod-hopping ego" is going to rip them apart as soon as they appear - calling them stuff like "deadly boring" and "annoying". You can't expect a sensitive soul like your "subconscious melody writer"to bare itself in the face of such harsh criticism.
top advice!! *takes it on board......yet again!*

Try being a bit more accepting of what comes out and allow your confidence to grow.
