It’s been a while since we last spoke, hasn’t it? It’s my fault, really. I’ve not been writing like I should, and I’ve been calling in to question my devotion to be a writer.
Don’t worry, the blog isn’t ending. I’m just having an emo moment or two. As you read this, I’m probably landing in LaGuardia (if my flight hasn’t been delayed) since I’ll be in Staten Island for a wedding this weekend. Go me.
I can’t say for certain when I’ll be updating again. I do have stuff written, but it’s nothing I would post here. I hate the way I write NSFW scenes, and all of it is NSWF. Perhaps I’ll fix that one day, but I am FAR too shy to try.
Again, I’m sorry I haven’t been posting, but I figured I owed you guys and gals an update.
Thanks for reading. Maybe my confidence will come back soon.
There’s a few things going on that have started to interfere with my schedule. We’re apartment hunting, the roommate is graduating soon, and we might have a second roommate join us soon. So that posting schedule I had has gone out the window. Updates are going to be sporadic for the next few weeks, possibly more. I’ll see if I can have something up by Friday, but I make no promises.
Sorry for the late notice. I’m usually more active on twitter or tumblr since they don’t require much effort.
I find myself in a bit of a quandary, which is why there was no post on Monday. It’s not the lack of ideas, but rather what feels like a lack of originality on my part.
I feel as if the stories that I come up with are all eventually turning in the same direction, with the same ending, and its a cut and paste protagonist from a different story. I think I just need a refresher; do a sprint using a prompt rather than an idea straight from my head.
Or maybe talking it out helps. And by talking, I mean spilling my soul/troubles on you guys & gals. I think that’s the best form of therapy sometimes.
Sorry its a short post today, but this took forever to write. (At least an hour! That’s ridiculous!) I kept wandering away to do other things that I shouldn’t be doing. Like looking at tumblr; god damn you tumblr, you are so distracting. Expect a better post on Friday.
Thanks for listening, and thanks for sticking with me.
First, its problems with my car; got that fixed thanks to a bailout from the bank of Mom. Then MORE problems with the car (bad sensor) which also got fixed. Then the PARENTS have massive problems with one of their cars and both computers, which resulted in a new engine, catalytic converter, a new desktop, and a new laptop.
Windows 8 and old people get along surprisingly well.
So I’ve had a busy week. The rest of today and tomorrow aren’t looking too good either, but next week looks better.
We’ll get back to our regularly scheduled programming on Monday. In the meantime, have a picture of an Eastern Screech Owl (Grey Morph) that was chillin’ out underneath my parent’s porch.
Mine started out with the catalytic converter being stolen out of my car last Saturday. Hence no post on Monday. All I wanted to to on Saturday was eat some goddamn Chinese food, play Xbox, and have a relaxing weekend.
No. I was not allowed to. Instead, I spent the rest of the weekend and into Monday at my parents house (hence no blog post). I’ve at least managed to procure a very swanky rental car on Wednesday so I have transport until my car is fixed.
Thank you, insurance company for being awesome.
I’ll make it up to you with a 3-a-week update starting this coming Monday. I’ll run it for two/three weeks since I’ve crapped out on you guys for that long. But for now, have a conversation with aliens. Continue reading →
Good lord, I keep forgetting to update this. I am a horrible, forgetful person.
Here’s kind of an update on what’s been happening (nothing major, I swear):
Reworking: I’ve been r-working some characters in my major story (that’s still untitled) and in my minor story of Atlanta. I’ve changed some things around, edited their back stories and decided to NOT reinvent the wheel (although that is fun to do).
Retooling: Speaking of wheels, I finally settled on a place to put everyone (yay!). I’ve also kind of figured out a time line for the overall story, and a back story that leads into the main story (again, yay!)
Rewriting: I like my beginning, but it needs some help to be less… fanfic-y sounding. I’m also trying to flesh out the characters a little bit more, give them some motivation behind their actions, and answer the ever burning question: why should Anya leave the farm? (Just don’t do it like Dorothy did.)
So that’s been it on my end of things. I’ve been super forgetful this past week, but I’ll have another blog up on Friday. My aim is to get back on track with updates and keep writing (obviously). I’ve been getting a little bit better about not playing the Xbox and spending all of my time on tumblr.
Not that I’ve been spending all of my time on tumblr.
