Author has written 7 stories for Death Note, Lord of the Flies, and League of Legends.
I just logged on for the first time in forever and started reading the reviews on my fics. I'd honestly been trying to work on some original stories, getting some writing in here and there between work, the 1-1.5 hour commutes to work and everything else in my life, but coming back here always fuels me with a fire to work on fics for my readers here (if any have stuck around from my extended hiatus). The first thing I think of is Angel of Deathnote, because so many people really wanted to me to work on that and as I had been thinking about the concept I had honestly worried myself that I hadn't thought out the story-line or the character motivations enough. I wanted to really think out how the characters would respond in the world I had thought up and I didn't have enough faith in myself to do it well. I've looked back on so many of my fics and cringed at plot-holes or even just the pacing I had laid out. I love that people have said such nice things about my writing, but every time I look at my own work I feel like I'm not good enough and I have to put that aside to write when I do have the time. I'm on such a time-crunch I don't read over what I do write down anymore because if I do I'll rewrite it a thousand times and not move on. I know I'll reread it at some point, but I need to focus on getting things out and on paper because my brain is so full of worlds and characters that all demand my time. I've been trying to focus on doing one when I have multiple stories in my head all the time. I just want to finish something! Now that I've looked back at Fanfiction and had the nostalgia hit me, I seriously think I'll work on fics again, just to help me get back into writing small pieces at the very least. I'm out of practice on writing because my time management is different from high school, so if I can get back into letting stories flow with small pieces like my fics, maybe my other stories will flow either. I'd love to be able to do both! And honestly, the desk job I have give me a lot of time where I'm waiting for customers to come in, but it's hard to focus on writing in the atmosphere there. Wish me luck, I'm going to try taking my ADHD medications at work and see if I can get any writing done. If all goes well I'll actually do something with Angel of Deathnote. I had a Bleach fanfic someone wanted me to write a while ago too that I completely let go. I still have the idea for it, I just never sat down and wrote it! I had told myself back then I wouldn't let the rest of life get in the way of my writing. My dream is still to become a published writer some day, but I need to be able to get myself together before that's obtainable. So I guess what I'm saying is you've all motivated me with your words and it's time to do some writing workouts.
Hopefully I'll be back soon with fics!
