With everything winding down (at work), I’ve been able to get a few more things done. It’s mostly got to do with the fact that I’m not as tired from my day job like before.
So, not only have I officially submitted my review for the game I mentioned earlier, I was welcomed aboard. I got my own wordpress login for the website and, although I have to complete my profile, I feel like I’m part of the team already.
On another note, there’s one story that I have always been going back to. At first, I wrote it as a short story twice. Each version has always been different. But the idea has always stayed with me.
This is my second science fiction story that I have. Its futuristic in nature, plus mutated beasts, and a bit apocalyptic in nature. I have the characters created and the world. I do have most of the plot figured out and yet, the execution has always been odd. I’ve written it time and time again and it still doesn’t fit.
I think it’s because the story deals with heavy issues – that I believe to be heavy – and so I want to portray these issues correctly. My inability to do so has, somewhat, annoyed me and, which is why, the story hasn’t really gone anywhere.
Nevertheless, I managed to write about two pages of this story. It’s not the greatest and even now, I’m trying to convince myself that I just need to write and not worry about how it sounds like. You would think with NaNoWriMo I would be better at this but its still hard.
In the meantime, I will be editing stories to try to appease my inner editor so she can let me write in peace.
