I write because I must...

Blog

Jumping on the blog bandwagon...

Posted by hotcheri on December 21, 2010 at 9:15 PM

So I decided to finally start a blog. :D

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...

Hey hotcheri! I often feel the way that you do when writing. When I read other peoples' stories (ESPECIALLY yours) I always doubt the way that I write.
However, you are an amazing writer!Let no one tell you otherwise. I love your stories and all of your characters!
Also, I think your stories are A LOT better than Meg Cabot's as your's seem more meaningful. For example, in The Pull of Destiny you managed to incorporate serious matters (such as Luke's aneurysm) into a romance story.
Please keep on writing as you have such an incredible gift!
