Writing Schedule - June

Hmm... I had come to the conclusion that I my problem as some kind of writer is not exactly lack of ideas but lack of will to write. More specifically, I don't know how to voice my thoughts. It's a problem that I'm sure I'm not the only one suffer from but I really want to be able to finish even one of my projects. I write when I'm hit with an idea and that idea doesn't leave me for days without end. It even reaches a point where I actually fall asleep thinking about my idea and putting it on paper (or a computer).

And lately, I've been hooked up in a particularly story that I had started writing sometime ago. Because I'm really afraid that I will probably write a few words and then move on with my life, leaving the document gathering dust in My Documents folder, I've decided to do something about it. And the best thing that occurred to me was to place deadlines on my works so I can finally finish something I start.

I work better when I know that I have to do some thing until I reach day X. Because I usually write without any type of deadline, I usually give up on the idea. So, for that reason, I decided to try to write with a deadline. For now, the deadline will be bigger because I need to worry about school and stuff.

Ramble Number 4 (Anime & Friendship!)

 Well, as the title says, I am going to talk about anime, in a way.

In March, 18th March to be more specific, I went to my first Anime Convention. I didn't even know they made those here in Portugal so when I heard about it I immediately convinced my brother to come with me. And he did. And we had a great time. I won't go into details but even though the place was small, it was lotsa fun. For the first time in my life, I actually ate ramen. *squeal* It was a lot better tasty than I ever thought it would be. My brother, on the other hand, thought it would be more tasty.

Anyways, I saw lots of cosplayers, some good, some awful. There were four cosplayers which I absolutely loved: Shizuo from Durarara!!!; Creeper from Minecraft (yeah, I know), Sanji from One Piece and some ninja from Sound Village (the ones that appear on the beginning of the anime) from Naruto. The last one was the best and I don't even like Naruto that much.

And, the big surprise there was, I found a guy from my school. How cool is that? He even recognized me (for some random reason). I was really happy knowing that there were other people like me, that liked Anime like me. Because, in a way, I'm a outcast because I don't like the same stuff as people my age from my country do. And, last week, my friend told me someone that also liked Anime wanted to meet me. I think it's the guy I met in the convention but I'm not sure. Then again, I'm beginning to think that it might not be him at all seeing as we've passed each other a lots of times but he hasn't said anything. maybe he's like me, a little shy? Well, I would love to meet people who like Anime in real life.

And, since we are in the subject, I might as well let it out. Despite me always saying that I don't like my classes, I think this one might be my favorite. I got a friend whom we share the same views of life, I found a friend who is also a writer like me (and he really wants to write something with me but I'm out of ideas) and I found another friend who is a hard core gamer, a little like me but he is more hardcore. In a single year I found three people with whom I share my hobbies so I am really happy.

I hope that by the end of the year, I have met that Anime guy and see what we could talk about. : )

EDIT: I finally met him!!! And I love the guy! He's a nice person and he likes the same stuff I do. It's really rare to come by a person like that in my country (well, at least in my school).

Ramble Number 3 (Romance!)

 Dear diary, (... *goes and kills herself*)

Just kidding. I'm back after being some days away. I noticed I had a lot of stuff I wanted/needed to write so I decided to do so.

First, I noticed something really important (at least for me). I love writing, watching, seeing, reading, whatever romance but I absolutely despise it when it comes to myself or even in real life (in a way). Whenever I walk through school, I can't help but notice the large amount of couples. Which really grosses me out. I love seeing love but when it's really love and not just the usual 'let's show the others we date'. I mean, from my point of view, they are practically having sex with their clothes on!!! If I want to see two people having sex, I would go to a porn site, thank you very much. But I don't want to and I find it gross. I also hate love when I'm concerned. In other words, romance is a beautiful thing but not when I'm somehow involved.

Why did I suddenly remember this? Because of my friend.

I have a friend that is in love with a boy and the boy is in love with her (I can see that and I don't know him that well). The problem is... they aren't dating. The question is: why? Because she is stupid. I love her to death but I think she is being stupid. She knows he loves him and tells me that she loves him but she refuses to date him, whenever he comes to talk to her, she brushes him off with a cold shower, etc, etc, etc. In other words, she is taking him as granted. And that makes me really mad. I think he is a nice guy and she is doing nothing than seeding hopes to him when she had no intention of dating him! Today I finally asked, why do you do that? And she answer me, because I don't like when he pressures me. He isn't pressuring her, he is just in love with her. If she is really in love with him, she would talk to him about it and not do what she has been doing ever since they know they like each other: taking him for granted. I'm even amazed he hasn't been fed up with her. Well, I'm crossing my fingers so that she finally sees her mistake and they end up together but it's all up to her. I'm just giving a few pushes her and there.

Well, I have some more stuff to say but it has nothing to do with this so I'll write it in my next post.

Ramble Number 2 (Writing!)

 Okay, it's been a really long time since I wrote something here (... it has only been 3 days...) and I've really been craving to write something.

To be honest, I did write stuff. I tried to start some of the prompts but... well... whenever I started writing, I had other ideas and I ended up writing about 5 prompts at the same time in which the main is probably the least talked about... Okay, this isn't quite right.... There is something wrong... So, I decided to create a set of characters so I can create the stories with each prompts. I was thinking of making each prompt a chapter.

And I've decided to check the NaNoWriMo site to see what they are up to: nothing much, figures! : ) I also passed by the 'Junior Section' (NaNoWriMo Young Writers) main page and I saw something that I really liked. On their homepage, they having something called 'Dare Machine' and, just as the name clues to, it generates a mini-plot for writers to write (pretty much like a prompt). And, what I wanted to say is, loved mine. It's pretty cliche but I already have lots of ideas for this single sentence.

The sentence is: We dare you to write a chapter where your antagonist saves the day and your protagonist's life at the same time.

How cool is that? The antagonist, usually trying to kill the protagonist and 'rule' over the world actually manages to save the day. EPIC! I shall start this sometime tomorrow.

Now, I will go away now because I  need to study Math so I can raise my grade. And I was studying but I needed a small break, which I used to write this.

PS: I'm what you would call, sick as a dog. Yesterday, before I went to bed, I drank one of my daily cups of green tea and then happily went back to my computer. I started surfing through the net while waiting to get tired and then go to bed. But, it was almost 1am and I was still as awake as ever. What happened? I asked myself and then... tea... I am used to drink caffeine-free green tea but I now have to change between a caffeine-free and a biologic one. They are both green though. I completely forgot about one thing... the biologic one has caffeine. And it was about 2 am (I had to get up at 7.30) and I was still moping around my head, trying to fall asleep. And then, as if some kind of 'miracle' *sarcasm*, my throat began to hurt. And I automatically knew I was going to be sick the next day. When I woke up, this morning, my throat was like sh*t (sorry about the language), my head hurt, my alergies decided to get as worse as ever and I was sleeping while standing. Let's just say I want to kill myself right now... *coughs* Stupid cold, alergies, rain, school, endless week and maths test... *sigh* I need my sweet rest...
