*EVERYTHING IS ON HIATUS UNTIL I CAN FIND THE TIME TO KEEP WRITING*
I really, really don't want to, but I've been feeling really bad seeing so many faves, follows and reviews saying "please update" when I just don't have the time to do so.
A NOTE FOR ALL MY LOVELY FOLLOWERS:
As you may have noticed, my updates tend to be sporadic, few and far between. The reason behind this is that I suffer from Absence Seizures (which is a form of epilepsy) in conjunction to both ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and Asperger's Syndrome. (Opposite ends of the same spectrum. Yay me!)
With Absence Seizures, instead of actually 'seizing' in the literal sense, it's like my brain sort of 'switches off' for a bit and then 'switches back on'. To blatantly steal Cursed Detective's words, basically, mental blankouts. My body doesn't actually do anything—it's all in my head. (Well, brain, if you want to get technical). And it's just as it sounds (to steal Cursed Detective's words again, it's like I blink and too much time has passed in between. My blankouts tend to only happen when I'm really tired or stressed, but sometimes they just happen with no rhyme, warning or reason.
Point is, sometimes they happen while I'm in the middle of writing a fic. Like, one second I'm typing away and then suddenly I have twelve full pages worth of the same letter, or worse still, I realise that my finger was on the backspace button and that I just deleted the majority of my fic. Also, after a blankout I tend to lose my train of thought, and when writing a fic that basically means I lose my mojo for a while.
Also, keep in mind that I see Fanfiction as a bit of a hobby. Consequently, it tends to sit on the backburner when it comes to study, work and life in general.
You my have noticed that I've deleted most of my old fics.
The reason for this is simply that I cannot see myself continuing them. I've tried to rewrite a few of them, but the fact of the matter is that I've completely forgotten where I was going with them. Reading through them and seeing my poor attempts at keeping the characters at least somewhat in-character and the pitifully short, rushed chapters, the clichéd and somewhat weak plotlines and excessive amount of dialogue, I don't know whether to laugh, cry or bang my head repeatedly against a brick wall.
Comparing old and new makes it quite obvious that my writing style has changed dramatically, and honestly I want to be able to focus on my major fics Death is Never the End (it's coming, I promise!), Newly Found Hope, Newly Found Family (I'll say it again; it's coming!), A Bellyflop Through Time (rinse and repeat) and An Unlikely Ally (...do I have to say it again?).
(I've been meaning to put this up all year. Oops.)
Suffice to say, we applauded.
Best part? I have him this year too!
One of my biggest pet peeves is people using their disabilities as a crutch. People who say "I can't do it because I have 'such-and-such' disability." Every time I hear someone say that I want to shake the stuffing out of them. You "can't do it"? Well, have you tried? You want to be an actor but you "can't because I am deaf/blind/in a wheelchair/have Cerebral Palsy/Autism/Downs Syndrome/Dwarfism/whatever"? You can. You just need to find the right people who can help you get there. You want to play an instument in a band but—for whatever reason—don't have full use of your hands? You can get the instrument modified and customised so that you can. And if there's no way around it, try something else. There will always be something else for you to try. And that's what you need to do; because you never know, until you try.
I myself have ADD, Aspergers Syndrome, Epilepsy, and am almost completly deaf in my right ear. I also have a genetic degenerative eye disorder which means that I will be completely blind before I turn sixty. I also have a job as a Nursing Assistant and am halfway through my Degree of Nursing.
I know there are ways of getting around a disability in order to do what you love, because I did.
. . . okay, rant over now.
I watch (and am consequently a fan of) many, many series, but I have to say my favourites are (in no particular order):
- Anything by Ghibli
I am the girl that doesn't go to school dances, or games, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, drawing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on Facebook, or talking to a girlfriend on a cell phone. I am the girl that hasn't been asked out in a year. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain. BUT I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn’t care if people call her weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and drawing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with some fantastic book or television series, who can express herself better with words than actions, and knows the importance of the little things. Copy and paste this onto your account, and add your name to the list, if you are anything like me, so the girls who are different and unique can know in their weakest time that they are unique but not alone: Iheartjake, TeamJacob101, Lunamione7, Sunshine0235, Edwardcullenrocks, SimplySaturn, She Poe, weasley-twins-41, Somariel, Vi-Violence, FandomNutter
