I decided to start over.
Honestly I find it insane that this website is even still here. It holds a lot of memories for me and I've read some great stories on this domain. However, my writing has grown while this website has also not. The user base has gone down, stories are incomplete left and right (including mine) and there isn't much of an audience here anymore. I do want to write, but I don't want to feel pressured to update or feel as if I am letting anyone down by not writing.
I deleted my stories, yes, because that writing is from when I was 10-12 years old. It was my foundation for writing and that was when I started to build as a writer. However it is not an accurate showcase of my ability now. I may publish more stories here, I may move to another website (I've heard that AO3 is popular right now?), or I may simply just keep the stories I've been writing on my USB for my own use. Maybe I'll even revise all my old stories and republish--I know there are a lot of editing mistakes and poorly written characters. I'm not sure.
This, of course, is in the ideal situation where I do not have to worry about university applications and school grades.
Thank you for the experience I've had on this website. I won't stop writing, regardless of the platform.
UPDATE 12/15/2015: I recently received a review stating that unless I update a story, someone would adopt the story from me. Please let me make this clear: I do NOT allow adoption of ANY of my stories. I cannot stress the importance of this message. I have created every story I have written and intend to finish them all, no matter how long it takes me to update.
There is also the matter of Copyright Infringement. This means that while I do not own the characters or the story base, it is still my fanfiction. I created the ideas I attached to the regular story and even created some characters. Copyright Infringement is illegal.
UPDATE 12/15/2015: HEY GUYS! IM ALIVE! :D A lot of you are wondering why I haven't been updating but if you look below, you'll see that I recently added three new stories that I dug up in my USB. I wrote them a long time ago but didn't have the heart to upload them...er...sorry.
You may find that I am not the most efficient when it comes to updating stories on Fanfiction, but please bear with me. I love writing, let me just say that. I will never abandon a story and will finish them eventually so please wait! However, sometimes I don't really have the time to finish or update my stories. I am also in the process of hopefully writing a book. Which I -finally- found some inspiration for.
Some of my earlier stories that I published in the summer of 2010 may not be that good, although I can assure you that I am getting better through my studies. The reason why: I wrote most of these stories (or started them off) at the age of 10. Not really an excuse, but as you can guess, my writing skills needed some work. Though I've been too lazy to edit most of them. If you hate Mary Sues, then sorry, but some of my stories may have that Mary Sue characteristic that some people dislike. In my perspective, it isn't that bad because I actually think it makes them quite significant. However, I have had some people give me some harsh reviews, and therefore, I will edit these stories as soon as I can.
Right now I am in the middle of some nice writer's block... and it is hitting me hard. I really can't think of a lead or a plot for one story that I am trying to get published! I can't even think of a title! I will work on it though, even if I have to write petty reminders on my hand to remind myself to get some work done.
Keep in mind about the number of stories I have, so sometimes it is hard to focus on updating one. Curse me on my numerous ideas. One just formed in my mind right now, how in the world will I ever be able to update again?
Cheers to updating!,
