After deciding to try out the viola, I decided to follow through with something else that I have a deep desire to do which is to write. I’m talking about writing fiction. I’ve literally had a trilogy in my head for 3 years that I’ve been too afraid to actually write because I don’t know what I’m doing and I wouldn’t know how to begin to get something published if I even managed to finish it. The story is good. Even I, with all of my crushing self-esteem issues knows that. But, I’m afraid of everything that goes with trying to pursue that.
So, I did the next best thing for me which is writing fiction purely for pleasure. I’ve always loved this site called, fanfiction.net. It lets people who love various books, movies, video games, television shows etc. write fiction based on these franchises. I’m a huge nerd and video game lover so I would read all of these cool stories that other fans would write based on these universes. Fantasy writing at its best and it’s so cool to see how talented people are. Anyway, I decided to try my hand at it and I started writing a story. I was surprised that people like it and are following it as I publish each chapter and sending reviews to me. There’s no money, you don’t get paid for it, but it helps refine your writing since people give you feedback as you try out your writing style. I’m surprised how happy it makes me to put a chapter up and see people really enjoy it. It’s cool too because only people who into the same stuff I’m into read it and so they really get it we can get all fan-goofy on the site. It’s pure indulgence for me and it’s anonymous so no one knows who I am. It’s an outlet and I like it. It’s different from blogging because here, I’m me and I’m so close to all of you, you’re like a kind of family. Over there I’m just another random fangirl writing nerd stuff and I can pretend to be a writer. 😉
Well, I’m suddenly having bipolar trouble so I’m gonna wrap this up.
