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...
