myaru: (Miang - I want to be myself)
Well, it has been a while since my last public post (not that I've been posting tons of locked entries, either), so I figured I should say something. The problem - as usual - is that most of my gaming time goes to Neverwinter or Elder Scrolls Online, and whatever time I don't spend on my job is spent either reading, or writing, or... I guess slacking off, which is the thing I'm best at. Don't want to clean the kitchen counters? Then don't! Tell yourself you'll do it later and watch ten cat videos instead. Once "later" gets here, it'll be too late, and you can do it tomorrow instead!

I used to talk about writing so often because I had fan fiction I could point you to. Without that... trust me, you don't want to see my early original stuff. If I'm having trouble with effective dialogue in an original short story, it's ten times worse because you don't have Naesala to drool over - you can't ignore my flaws. :P Also, I feel it'd be silly to continue the 100 Things series I started when I feel less and less qualified to talk about writing at all. Even my own writing!

That problem could be a post, actually, if I could only find the article I want to reference.

While I could get better at dialogue, my real problem is still effective characterization. I think plotting is right behind that. Even with a template I can't make it work, which inspires a level of sadness that requires too much chocolate and the indulgence of a sudden, violent desire to just go to sleep and forget about it. (Good chocolate is expensive! I don't make that much money.) Who the fuck needs plot, anyway? I'm reading a book right now that has no plot! What it has is cats.

So... what I need in my fiction = more cats.

Problem solved?

I'm seriously tempted to write the dumbest, most self-indulgent Tales of Symphonia AU ever, because Genis and Mithos are still in my head. After that I can write the second-dumbest AU ever, which I hereby dub "Mithos Owns a Goddamn Tesla."

I even have plots worked out. :P
