  • 31/31 Day 3: One of the story ideas I'm doing this for

    I figured the sooner I do this blog the better. Even then, I was hesitant and constantly double guessing myself while writing this. I'm going to talk about one of the story ideas I have that I'm struggling to write, I was going to do multiple stories but that kind of caused a "I'

  • 31/31 Day 2: It takes Dedication

    4

     

    One thing that Video Games and writing (and all fiction when you think about it) have in common is that they require dedication to finish, both for the creator and consumer. In case you didn't pick up on it while reading yesterdays entry, I have a dedication problem. My mind thinks about many things at once but work is only accomplished by focusing in on just one. So while playing a Video Game or Writing, my mind will always think about something else I could do, regardless of how much I like what I'm currently doing (I have a sudden urge to play Jet Set Radio, see what I mean).

     

    Really, it's surprising how much dedication my favorite things require considering my lack of dedication. Do you know how easy it is for me to just pace around the room in-between sentences, there's probably a two minute time gap between the last sentence of the first paragraph and the first sentence of this one. I'm just too active, my mind takes ideas, switches between them randomly and changes them. And before you ask, yes, I do have a backlog, it's big. And I have so many different things I could write, I basically have plot backlog in addition to my Video Game one.

     

    But I have been able to get enough dedication to finish things, I finished Persona 3 (it took me over 100 hours) and I was making progress in Tales of Graces F before my PS3 died in the middle of a scene (it's off for repairs). I just need to find the Persona 3 of my writing, and this challenge should help me with doing that. Basically, there's hope for me becoming a better writer, I just need the right trigger for it to happen.

  • 31/31 Day 1: Why I'm doing this

    Welcome to the first entry in my 31/31. First thing you should know about me, I can think, but I suck at the part where I actually carry out that thought. I have a lot of plots in my head, but actually writing them is a challenge, I don't think I've ever finished writing a third
