Writers block has struck me once again. All I hear when I try to write more about Kaylee and Tyler is 'you suck. Your writing sucks'. And it's true that I think my writing has deteriorated greatly since the time I wrote The Pul of Destiny. I just have gotten to the point where I hate Tyler and Kaylee and I don't want to write about them anymore because I'm scared that I won't do their story justice. Is it just me or does every writer end up hating their stories at some point? I wonder if that's how Stephen King felt when he wrote the Dark Tower series. Sometimes I hate writing because I always seem to go through this and I end up disappointing myself and you guys, the awesome people who read my stories and put up with my sporadic updates. I remember when writing used to be my whole life and now it seems I can't start a story without getting mired in writers block. It sucks having so many ideas in my head- pretty good ones too- but not being able to put them into existence on paper (or on a Word document).
So what am I saying? I don't really know. I might take a hiatus soon. I think I've lost my spark.

crazy insane mad writer's block on the next chapter of The Pull of Destiny. I just can't write it. And since I'll go crazy if I don't write anything, I decided to take on a project and write a ten-shot in third person. I'm already three chapters in, and
although it feels a little stilted at times, its going pretty well. Impressive, since the last time I wrote in third person was when I was 10 :D. #winning.
My question to everyone (or should I say anyone) who reads this blog is-
would you read it?
1) It's more mature than anything I've ever written. If I post it on fictionpress, I'll have to rate it as M. All of my previous stuff has been rated T. I know, I know.
2) There is no sex in the story (well, okay, there's an attempted phone sex scene *blush*) but it contains a LOT of talk about sex and -ahem- various descriptions about the male and female anatomy.
3) It's not safe for kids. Then again, I first read Jackie Collins 'Chances' when I was 12 so...
If you want to read it, please vote on the poll on my homepage and I'll post the first chapter soon. Love you all!

...is going better than I thought! I'm 8 pages into something I just thought up and while it's not perfect, I'm having a good old time writing it. I just need to get this short story out to prove to myself that I can actually do it! I might post an excerpt on here depending on how I feel about the finished product... would you guys like that? Sort of as a 'thank you for sticking by me through my crummy writer's block' type of thing. Side note- I forgot what writer's block was called and was googling 'when you can't write stuck' to remember
So yeah. I'll post an excerpt for you guys. As soon as I figure out a summary for the story

...a story in third person, because all of my stories are in first person and I want to challenge myself. And you know what? It's hard!:|

So I decided to finally start a blog.
Nobody is gonna read it, and I'll probably spend more time blogging than actually working on my stories, but c'est la vie. At least you'll know I'm not dead. So get ready for useless drabble from the mind of hotcheri.
My problem is that I have a real hard problem with consistency. I'll write a full chapter in 1 night then not write anything for three weeks. GRRR. Gotta focus!
And when I start reading other peoples stories (which I try hard not to do when I'm writing for reasons you'll soon find out) I start getting depressed. My story ideas and writing are never good enough compared to the things I read. Not enough emotion. Too much telling. I start wondering why I'm bothering. Take a week off writing, then come back and type out a half-hearted chapter because even writing crap is better than not writing anything at all, right? BOOO! I need to accept the fact that I am no Meg Cabot, understand my real limits and write something totally shallow, stupid and easy
(I already have something in mind but its sooooo cliche I cringe just thinking about it :P). Then we can all laugh over how corny it is. Because writing is my life and if someone actually came up to me and told me I was the worst writer ever, it would kill me. So please don't tell me that, okay? You can think it, but don't tell me to my face (or through a PM).
And now I'm off to write the next chapter in The Pull of Destiny...
