Breakfast at Tiffany's
But besides that, I'm counting down to Christmas (Currently 4 days, 5 hours and 0 minutes) and trying to come up with fillers for Danger Close's final chapters. I know the ending, I just need to find the action for before the ending. =/ And really sorry to those who needed the reviews from SYC, I'm not going to be able to review them. Maybe as a Christmas present for you guys I'll review them. =)
Still, I got an honorable mention, as did Inferna. I'm happy with the results - so happy, I'm motivated to write again! =D
Congrats to all the winners, especially to Legolover, Aderia, and Grant-Sud. You guys deserved the places you finished in.
But I'm going to attempt to make a holiday story, depends on what the specifics of it will be, though. :/ Any ideas?
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. ._.
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.
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.
That, and I feel I'm pressed for time on the new Danger Close chapter, which I feel hasn't gotten a lot of posts in the review topic. I'd really appreciate even a single-sentenced comment in the review topic, just as long as I get something. It's basically dying through all the Epics pages, and I would really appreciate anybody who's willing to review it and check it out. Even if you read only the first few chapters, I'd still be in debt.
Anyway, sorry for the delay in SYC reviews, I'm just busy with writing and school. I really need to get everything for writing done. ;_;
Also, besides just that, I really need motivation for Danger Close. I have no clue where I should go with it, even though I want to induce the action needed in it. I just need motivation to keep writing and not to stop - I can't let this story just fade and die in the background like a lot of my other ideas. I need to write more of it - I want to write more of it.
Seriously? This is an amazing story. If you read it, you really won't regret it. If you haven't read Inferna Firesword's previous epics, then you might want to check the story guide she has in the review topic so you understand the characters, or either read one of her previous epics. Nonetheless, this story hasn't gotten the attention it deserves, and truly is an awesome story - seriously, go read it. You won't regret it. ; )
Turned to orange and yellow
Found beneath the silver trees
The colors in a swirl
The brown and green
Coursing with the yellow
All in an autumn whirl
The sky still holds
The pearly clouds above
The sun still shines
On the faded green pines
O, don’t we love?
The breezes flow
Past the trees above
The leaves begin to fall
Representing the beginning
Of the beautiful season—
Well, there you go. I went in and out of rhyming, so that's why the last stanza didn't rhyme. Anyway, enjoy. =]
Also, that story should be up tomorrow on my blog, and if I get good comments, I'll probably put it in CoT, although it'll still be viewable here if it sinks to the bottom of the pages, lol.
(Also, yay, I'm making dinner. )
But for the meantime, I have a story I might be posting in my blog in about another two hours or so, depends on what may happen. Not sure what the length will be, but it's non-Bionicle related. It was once a composition I had to write for school, which I still wrote, but I just revised it into a full-fledged story. Who knows, I might create it with chapters and everything.
