That was odd...

Right. I apologise for leaving you all in the lurch like that; I've just had a few too many system shocks lately. Unfortunately for you, however, this means that I am dropping out of NaNoWriMo. I just can't find my muse. Rest assured, I'll pick up writing again in a little while, as soon as my self-confidence reaches acceptable levels, but in the meantime I got nothin'.

In looking over all of my posts, I can see how much I've matured in a fairly short amount of time. Not even a year ago, typing this much and sharing it with the world would have been unthinkable to the point of absurdity. I was a very shy kid who attempted to compensate for his social ineptitude by using large words, like 'compensate' and 'ineptitude'.

But, in the manner of everything in the universe, I got older. No longer am I concerned about utter perfection in my literary endeavors. I still aspire to write in a manner as captivating as Heinlein, but I know that it will take years of hard work and dedication. I am still somewhat impatient with myself, especially in regards to actually getting things done, but I'm doing better.

Grah. Stupid shiney things on the intarweb. Got all distractificated, and now I'm making up words. Goodnight!
  • Reading this made me smile. I have noticed a change in your writing style during the past few months, though it has been subtle. I think it is the tone that has evolved, hmm. . . Anyway, it definitely reflects that you have grown. This a good sign that you'll eventually reach (and perhaps surpass?) Heinlein's talents! :D

    Until then, just keep writing. You do it well.
  • I can't say that I'm not disappointed but then in comparison to your disappointments lately I do understand. I will be waiting with anxious anticipation for your next adventures in writing. I did see a reference to an lj community that you might enjoy: grammar nazis, on the site it's all underlined. Take care.
  • Hey, Life Happens...

    and the whole point of this excercise was the excercise, afterall.
    I know that you dont need anyone pressing you to drivel 2000 wds/day to write something of quality rather than quantity (much preferred anyway)...
    aren't you glad you didnt quit college for THIS?????
    take it easy on yourself,
