In the new year, I hope I can become a better blogger. I do enjoy it, I just find myself distracted by far too many things. Since I last posted, I have written for a couple of contests, tying for first in one of those, and have generally changed the entire outline for my fic, Brilliance. Surprised? No, I didn't really think you would be, but I felt I should touch on this anyhow. I'm learning that when I'm writing, I often veer into a different direction than I had been previously heading - not that this is a bad thing. In fact, I believe this is a good thing. My writing seems to be affected by my mood, and I feel I can write more...emotionally, I think you could say, when I'm actually paying attention to my own mood swings. I've been told my angst is palpable and the lemons are good, which is great. But I really want to give humor a go. I'm a funny person in general, but in writing, it's harder to get each thought onto the page, to display the tenor of the conversation or situation. I'm going to look at it as a learning experience. Hopefully one I can grow from as a writer. I suppose this is enough blathering for now. Be on the lookout for more posts!
