Soooooooo, I have been absent a while….. sorry…….
I have recently been
ambushed by a flock of enthusiastic pigeons inspired to attempt to write…. well anything really…. a story…. or is it real……. DRAGONS EXISTS…. PROVE ME WRONG?!?!?!?
Where else did my choccie go??
It is the only logical explanation in sight.
Back to the whole writing thing….
I have a few ideas for a book(s), which I think could be friggin’ epic if done right….. except I don’t know if I can do the story justice…. the last time I wrote any kind of story was a few years ago….
I’m a little rusty…..
After being hit with this wave of inspiration…. I haven’t written a single thing… not even the outline…. heck not even the ideas themselves.
So I have compiled a list of reasons that I
am going to blame think is stopping me from writing something that could potentially be amazing.
Lack of Writing Skills
As I mentioned earlier…. I haven’t written in a while…… and I feel like if I tried to write anything it wouldn’t come out as I would like it to???
Typically authors tend to write several different books before they publish one that they are happy with (I did not stalk several different forums regarding book writing….. why would I do that?) and I know if I want to get somewhere, I need to start somewhere….
And there is the problem…. actually starting to write something…. anything.
When reading a book, a lot of readers tend to get tired if there is too much of an info dump and maybe become disinterested and/or confused if there is no explanation to the story or world…. I know this from personal experience… although, I would like to note, I always give any book I am reading the benefit of the doubt and some of those books are in my top 10 favourites now…… because they were amazing…. evidence of perfection when I think back…. but the first time I read them…. that beginning info dump was mad.
So, starting a book without throwing things or with holding too much from the reader…..
I have it in my head but putting it into words….. is another story…. No Pun Intended 😀
I’m Laughing to Myself and I’m alone. SAVE ME SOMEBODY!
This reason is pretty self-explanatory, when faced with “Oh, would you look at that…. I have a few hours of spare time before I have to do anything overly important…. maybe I could spend those precious few hours wisely and start writing!”
I ALMOST ALWAYS DO THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT I SAY AND/OR PLAN TO DO!
I just read more books and cry because there is no way an amateur could reach this level of wizARDRY???
BUT I’LL NEVER KNOW IF I COULD BECAUSE I’M BEING TOO MUCH OF A WIMP TO TRY!!!!
There are authors whose debut novels have been extreme successes…. It’s like I think that any book I write will send me into an abyss of failure…… I don’t know why I cry so much about it….. It could be great…… maybe???
I get distracted very easily… more recently I have begun re-watching Merlin again………… I have seen it a few times through to the end already…. I just want to watch it again and again….. I’m just going to cry ……..again.
I have also started re-watching the Marvel movies because HAVE YOU SEEN THE INFINITY WAR TRAILER?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!
I’ve watched it a few times……
I am very exciteeeeeee……
I haven’t even seen Black Panther yet…. but I am ready……
^^ James Buchanan Barnes…. such a bean …… so is that snazzy Steve Rogers but….. BUCKYYYYYYYYY!
AAAAAAny way, How have you guys been??? Do you perhaps have any ideas that will stop me being a nervous wreck when it comes to starting something new???
Have you seen this BEAUTIMUS TRAILER???? CAN WE TALK ABOUT IT?!?!!?? BUCKKKYYYYYYYY!!!!!
Again, sorry for being away for so long, nothing ruins plans better than procrastination, amaright? Hopefully I will calm down with the whole “I can never write as good as the other people write.” thing….. and then actually write something…. that would be a miracle….
I’m never getting over that trailer though……
DoN’t EvEn TrY tO sToP mE fRoM wAtChInG iT aGaIn!!!! HAHAHAHAAHAHA
