I hate starting new stories!!


Yes, I admit this as well- I hate starting new works.

Why? Well that's a fantastic question, and I'd love to elaborate. Just the thought of writing that first word is terrifying. Why again? See, writing that first word of a new story is far beyond important. That first paragraph is the veryyyy first thing one reads and if it sucks...well then the story is ruined! I absolutely hate that pressure!

I've been putting off that pressure for weeks now (yes I procrastinate, I'm human -___-.) But today, I finally started my newest piece, a short story. Let me say, figuring out those first words... was awful. Still, I got through it and managed like 6 pages earlier!

I write by hand, 6 pages is a lot, let me tell you!!

With that, I leave my blogging behind for another day. I'm trying to gather the strength to start my short story again, even though I'd rather work on my novel in progress. Oh welllllll!

I got a Blogger app on my phone!

Indeed, it's true-right now I'm blogging from my phone! It's pretty odd to say the least and I'm probably going to edit it as soon as I get on my laptop. However, it is pretty convenient to say the least. I'll probably just use it to start my posts so I can finish them later. Sure it doesn't do everything that my laptop can, but beggars can't be choosers, right?

I'm going to play with it a little bit more, until then!:D I hope everyone had a wonderful Sunday and sorry that my post is uber short today!

Twitterrrr!! Whyyy!!

I honestly can say that I hate Twitter.

I don't use it on a regular basis by free choice; in fact, the only reason I have it constantly updated is because I have the account synced to my Facebook Page. To be honest, I don't really get it. All you do is post messages barely long enough to express complete thoughts, while every now and then, you have people comment about your little 'twits'. To me, it resembles a knock-off Facebook.

Anyway, rant over. What I wanted to get at was how my Twitter has been hacked too many times for me to count. (Okay, I lied, it's three times, but that's still too many times). Why in the world is it so easily hackable? I've changed my password countless (three) times and it still ends up all screwy! I'm curious why in the world is this happening to me, considering I've probably only been on the actual website around fifteen times in my life.

I'm giving it another chance, but my patience is wearing thin with the site. Although, I am curious to see if this has happened to anyone else. Probably not though, considering I have the worst luck in the world. Anyway, this is day two with my constant posts, and blogging about something that annoys the heck outta you is pretty easy. By the way, you guys can follow me on my crazed Twitter if you want-I'm not stopping you.

It doesn't look like it, but this sentence is the link to it! Right here!! This line!!

With that, I return to work... Oh joy of life:P

Oh Blogger-I'm so sorry!!

I need to apologize to my blog sooooooo many times! That's because I really haven't been on here in, like, forever. Why? Meh, personal issues. I haven't felt like really blogging, writing, or doing much of anything for the longest time. Not too long ago I was told to get over myself. Okay, sure, but how? Not too sure, but I'm definitely going to try and put more time into my work. Maybe that will fix everything else in my life.

But first, my to-do list:

First: Work on my blog
Yeah.... When I actually put some energy into it, my blog actually got some views. I want to try again (no promising how long it'll last tho!)

Second: Make a vlog
I totallyyyy want to make a vlog, because that'd be so cool! I need to see how I can make on anyway because I haven't the slightest idea. But once I do, I plan on answering questions as soon as possible!

Third: Make my Facebook page popular
Not sure how that's happening, but I want to bring in some traffic... I'll figure something out.

Fourth: Finish my stories
Yeah, I know this should be number one, but I know that I can do this. I just need to put a little more time into my day for it. I've cut back video games for writing, maybe I should do the same with the Internet!

Five: Finish those goals
Obviously I can't think of anymore XD but I'm going to try and accomplish these things by the end of summer... Hopefully it all ends up good! Until then, back to work!
