    So my first go wouldn't be at all great but worth a punt I suppose. An idea I'm pushing for is trying do a journey fic but instead of the character going through the journey in the present, it is in her past. Try to mix it up.

    Oh this isn't going to go well :P
    Well, you will never improve if you don't give it a go! The story idea sounds interesting, you should post it!

    I definitely understand that!

    I have to say, though, probably the hardest thing about being a writer is developing discipline when it comes to actually sitting down and getting down to business. It's something that has totally been killing my stuff for a while now, but I'm working on it.

    Hmmm yeah. Well on second thought, I would keep it simple.

    A simple journey fic and then lead it to something from there.

    Oh, I didn't mean to put you off at all. I was just trying to make you aware that that's something you'll want to keep in mind. I find that, the less regular I am with fics, the less likely I am to finish them. If this means writing enough for two chapters a week, but only posting one, then that's something I will do.

    No, no.

    Nothing to do with you, I'm just tired from work which kind of means that my ideas are just frazzled and confused. :P

    lol, I'm tired of NOT having work. I don't feel like I'm doing my fair share around here being jobless and at home all the time while my brother is in school and my parents work. I also wish to get out more. But just walking around the neighborhood is boring. I prefer to actually go out to places. A simple trip to the grocery store or something would suffice.

    On a writing-related topic, however, I'm thinking of discontinuing my Fire Emblem fic here. No one seems to be interested in it. I'll keep my Zelda fic seeing as it won an award and all, which means people here DO like it, but my FE fic just seems to have no place here.

    You would be correct.

    Well at first I felt really sad but we ended it in good terms and we're still close friends so I guess I feel a bit better.

    Things these happen. As long as you ended up as friends, it is good.

    I've been through it and it is hard but as long as it ends well then it is good.

    Finally found my wind, raring to go.

    I have somewhat the opposite problem. I overthink things and spend so much time working on the backstory that I never get to the important parts, the stuff people will read.

    I've been writing down details and plot summaries/points for something for two months now. I've yet to write a single word of the first chapter. And now I've lost interest in it. This always happens.
