Ignored

Posted by Peach 00 , in BZP, Writing Dec 11 2011 · 98 views

I'm feeling slightly ignored lately - I don't know what it is, I really don't. Not that I'm begging to be in the spotlight 24/7, but I'd just like to be notice. I've felt this way about a lot of things lately. My writing, discussion - it seems like I'm just being ignored, invisible to everybody else. My writing gets absolutely no recognition nowadays, and when I post valid, controversial points in some topics, people completely ignore what I say. I can post page-length posts and nobody even cares to read them.

And with my stories? I can spend weeks, months, years - nobody cares. I've been writing Danger Close for two years now. Repeat, two. I used to have plenty of recognition for writing it, solid reviews and comments. Ever since the forums came back online, I've been completely unnoticed. And when I entered the SSC8 contest, two people reviewed the story. Two. I appreciate the comments, but I'm just angry that nobody really cared to look, to venture into something new and maybe enjoy it.

And then when the polls come out...when they come out, I'm not there. Sure, there was a 1 in 43 chance, but it was a story I had been working on since the contest started. I put my nose to the grindstone to write the best story I could, and it doesn't get any notice of even existing.

So tell me, BZP: What does it take to get noticed? Put some flashy title in a blog entry or story? Make it something to do with zombies, blood, skulls, and maybe even My Little Pony? I seriously don't get what I have to do to actually be noted. After the polls came out, I've really been questioning my writing ability and if I'm all that good. Just being ignored hasn't at all motivated me to write, and I can't come up with anything original or creative. When nobody reads my writing, why should I write?

And before everybody starts saying that I should just get over it about the polls, I've been stressed out about this contest from the start. I've worked hard, and I think people should actually take note of the trouble it takes me and others just to write something others might enjoy. I write for people - I would never write if I didn't have the ability to share it with others.

...Still, guys, just tell me what it is that I'm doing wrong, and whether or not I should consider even writing anymore. ._.

To Syc Requesters...

Posted by Peach 00 , in Review(s) Dec 11 2011 · 38 views

...I'm really sorry for taking so long in this. Today I'm going to be looking at the stories requested (If I recall, they were 'The Switch Mirror', 'Destiny Quest', and 'Divided We Fall'). However, I will be busy with a friend of mine today, and it depends when she comes and whether or not I'll have time to view all three. Nonetheless, I'm still open for requests.

I'll get to them as soon as I can, guys, I feel really bad about the delay. You'll all be getting reviews soon, I promise.

I'm Writing Again!

Posted by Peach 00 , in Writing Dec 10 2011 · 35 views

I finally got the motivation to put a few fingers on the keyboard for a change. :D So, I've got a WIP that's basically a dark romance right now, entitled What We Create. Only got a page in it, but I plan on it being about ten to fifteen pages. Despite the length, it'll still be good - the few characters in it are my villains in Danger Close, specifically Uzian, Fuzan, Colorn, and Tikiani. Silio won't be making an appearance in it, but only because he's had his day in the sun in Rebirth. But still, I won't reveal the plot, but I promise it'll be pretty good. ;D

Also I might post a songfic I did through the duration of the downtime, but only in my blog. If there are good comments on it here, there's a chance I might post it in the SS forum. Supposed to be a Nikila and Lesovikk romance, entitled Angel. The song of course is Angel by Sarah McLachlan - I was considering using Witness instead, but the other song seemed more suited to Lesovikk. And I've got plenty of other stories that I'm planning right now, all of them interesting. Plus, just about all of them tie into Danger Close with the exception of one probably.

Ah, what Call of Duty Black Ops, Animal Crossing, and Pink Floyd can do to inspire me. :P

Contests

Why so many? We have the System contest, the RPG contest, the two SS contests - what's next? Of course, I don't mind it, but I just don't remember there being so many back on the old forums. =/

Random, Random, Random, And Ask Me

Posted by Peach 00 , Dec 07 2011 · 53 views

Well, because it's getting late, I figured I'd give random updates, news, quotes, and mini rants before I get to bed. Seems better to have a wide range of completely spontaneous subjects compiled into one blog entry than spread out into about nine.

So, first, just like to get this out of the way: At my ballet place, my teacher has been telling me/my parents that one of my friends and I are the two most advanced students in the class. Despite the fact it's going to happen anyway because of my age, she's thinking of moving me up to the advanced 12+ class.

As well, this Russian ballet guy is coming the day after my birthday (my birthday is January 21st), and because I'll be 12 at that point, I'd take the advanced master class he's teaching for a day. Now of course the other teachers, including the assistant teacher, will be in this exact class, and my teacher thought it'd be awesome if I were in that class. So, just to see what my best abilities are, I'm going to be taking that class. =D (But unfortunately for me this guy doesn't speak a word of English, so I'm going to have to be working on ballet phrases and anything that he will understand when in communication.)

So that's update #1.

Now secondly, my brother (Tifosi 94) is having his birthday in six days, which will be five days tomorrow, but still, can't wait for that. My mom and I will be making a chocolate cake, either that or a black forest cake. For my birthday, I'm wishing for the Portal cake - anybody wondering what specific cake-type that is or if anybody has the recipe?

Annd for an entirely random part, I'm busy watching Cheers while typing this. It's interesting to see that there's basically a tie-in with about six other shows because of the producers/creators/directors of Cheers made those other shows. So, about all of them: M*A*S*H, Taxi, Cheers, Frasier, Wings, andone other one I can't remember. All of them are really cool shows. :'D

And again, on an entirely different note, writing has been semi-good. I've been wanting to do a human-Bionicle story lately, but haven't gotten any good ideas for it. Anybody have any practical ideas for a story? I'm wanting to use some of the characters in Danger Close (which, by the way, could use some attention, people), but I just can't think of any specific story background. =/ Also, advertisement for the following stories:
  • Wings by Inferna Firesword
  • Divided We Fall by Grant-Sud
  • Rebirth by Me (Self advertisement is pitiful, but what the heck)
  • Danger Close by Me
So, there's a small list, but deserves attention. Again, I didn't want to advertisement my own stories, but they do need some attention. Grant's story and my story are both SSC8 entries, so we'd appreciate views on both. Inferna's epic has had reviewers bail on her (No clue who those people are, but get with it, guys), and just about the same with Danger Close. Reviews for all those stories would be great.

And last but not least, ask me stuff. No clue what, but just ask me stuff.

R . I . P. Harry Morgan

Posted by Peach 00 , Dec 07 2011 · 45 views

Apparently just recently Harry Morgan, known for his roles on M*A*S*H and Dragnet, died of pneumonia. It is sad to see this actor die - he played one of the best roles on M*A*S*H, playing Colonel Sherman T. Potter.

Still, a tragic loss.

Music Quiz (Remember Inferna's?)

Posted by Peach 00 , in Music Dec 06 2011 · 64 views

I remember Inferna Firesword did this a year ago, and because I was bored, I went searching for it somewhere in her blog so I could have a little fun with it. So, for those who don't remember and can take it and post the results in comments:

1. Open your library to iTunes, Windows Media Player (WMP), or whatever music device you have
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Hit play

Every question you answer with the song, move onto the next question. Just say what song played for the question. Here we go!

1. What is my life's philosophy?
"Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd (I have no clue what to decipher from this)

2. What will my last words be?
"Circle" by Sarah McLachlan

3. How am I feeling today?
"A Matter of Trust" by Billy Joel

4. What is my theme song?
"Where Did All the Love Go?" by Kasabian (Not necessarily my theme song, but my attitude about lots of things)

5. What song will be playing at my wedding?
"Have a Cigar" by Pink Floyd (OK, this is a little weird... >.>)

6. What song will be played at my funeral?
"Someday Never Comes" by Creedence Clearwater Revival

7. How will I be remembered?
"Money" by Pink Floyd (For some reason, I like this. =D)

8. What is some good advice for me?
"Hold On" by Sarah McLachlan

9. What is my life's dream?
"Building A Mystery" by Sarah McLachlan (...)

10. What's my kind of lady/man?
"Drivin' With Your Eyes Closed" by Don Henley (No clue what to think of this one)

11. How do people see me?
"Witness" by Sarah McLachlan (?)

12. How would I describe this page?
"Not Enough Love in the World" by Don Henley

13. How would I describe my best friend?
"I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLachlan (This sounds just about right in a way...)

14. What's in store for this week?
"I Love You" by Sarah McLachlan (My computer apparently loves Sarah McLachlan - but maybe this is a good sign...?)

15. How would I describe my parents?
"Fire" by Kasabian (Not fitting, not fitting at all...)

16. If I had one wish, what would I wish for?
"Bad Moon Rising" by CCR (Heh heh heh...)

17. What do my friends think of me?
"Big Shot" by Billy Joel (This does not comfort me at all...)

18. What is said about me behind my back?
"British Legion" by Kasabian (Wut?)

19. What do I think of this questionnaire?
"Life's Been Good" by Joe Walsh

~:~

Well, there you go. It seemed like it went pretty well - that last one instantly made me laugh out loud. :P Still, enjoy - comment your results.

Hamburgers

Posted by Peach 00 , Dec 05 2011 · 51 views

Having that and hot dogs for dinner. All I can think of is putting cheese, pickles, and ketchup on top of my hamburger, taking a bite, and then start munching into the french fries I have with it - in the great words of somebody I probably don't know, 'OM NOM NOM'. :D

Comics

Posted by Peach 00 , in BZP, Review(s) Dec 04 2011 · 47 views

Okay, I decided I'd take a look inside the proclaimed 'awesome' forums by so many comic makers alike, and viewed a few of the 'great' comics. I had gone there on the old forums, and looking at them now, they still aren't all that funny. No personal offense to the artists themselves, but I'm going to go on a rant about them and point out what I saw and the flaws.

First, after looking at one artist who will go unnamed, I saw the comics and took a look at the first one. Of course, it was just an introduction to the PGS characters, so it wasn't supposed to be funny, I guess. But I looked at the next few comics, and I still didn't see it all that funny.

So, let me tell you why: There's no wit. Wit. Yes, most of you might have heard of it. When making a comic, short or long, the potential subject should at least carry out a witty form of banter with characters, a subject that can produce interesting discussion between characters, when it might finally lead to a humorous end. Or, at least a similar comic type to that.

So, next, I took at somebody else's comics who is named as a genius among the comic-maker community. After looking, not all that much of a genius. The comics have some funny points, but not laugh out loud funny. I viewed the first five comics and I wasn't impressed.

...

Okay, well this wasn't all that long of a rant, but that's a miniaturized version of what I first intended to rant about. But, nonetheless, a rant.

Reviews

Posted by Peach 00 , in Review(s), Writing Dec 03 2011 · 53 views

I need some for Danger Close. The review topic has basically died on the second page, and it has six replies in it, three of them if I'm not mistaken my replies to the measely three reviews in the topic. Guys, I know that I shouldn't force people to read the story, but it'd be nice if people did. I've worked a year on that one story, put in almost over 30,000 words, and 74 pages in it, not to forget eighteen chapters. I've worked hard and long on it, and I'm not about to give it up just because people aren't interested in reading stories on here anymore.

Writers like myself love the criticism, the praise, the simplistic comments - we love it because it reminds us that people really like what we write. It gives us the pleasure of knowing that what we are writing, the emotions we put down in words are read. Even if it's a few words, we know people read our stories.

I don't understand why people don't enjoy looking at the stories the writers put out. The only people reviewing our stories our fellow authors, which is always comforting at most because they can point out the small flaws we have and tell us how to improve on those imperfect portions. But others reviewing tells us other people besides the other authors read our writing.

But I really don't understand this: Why do people care to sit in one topic for over hours, posting the same thing over and over? Now I'm referring to the games in CoT. How is that interesting? Maybe it's a different in interest. Maybe it's because people aren't always interested in writing. But try something new! It can always be a refreshing change.

Maybe this is just me, but I haven't really been motivated considering the constant lack of view on my stories. I write because I enjoy it, and I write so others can have the pleasure of enjoying it, too. When nobody reads it...it disappoints me. It makes things a little more bleak for me, a little less motivating. When nobody reads, why should I write?

Well, maybe this is just my version of a rant about writing. I don't think it's ever been writer's block stopping me at this point, but I think it's just the lack of my stories being viewed.
