Sigh. ARRRGH!!!
Puppy Pout
Hey Reader,

Today has not been my day as far as writing goes. I have had one sentence actually make it to the page and I don't even know if I like it. I can't explain what it is. I have tons of ideas in my head and I can see what I want to have happen and hear bits here and there of what I WANT to have happen, but ugh! It won't come onto the page. I am getting so irritated, because I know that if I could just make it happen, it would! I honestly don't know what's wrong with me!

And, as I already kind of spilled the beans in a post at doggieearlover's journal, the piece I've been trying to work on all day is NOT Journey to the City of Endless Night. GASP! I know. How can I not be working on the new chapter! I am trying to write a one shot/song fic, and it won't leave me alone, but it won't work with me, either. I am so close to giving up for the day. It's just insane. I sit and think, and stare at the blank page, and then nothing. I swear, I will make it work, though!

And I will also be working on that next chapter. I've been spending a lot of time plotting out very key elements in a few up coming arcs, so that's another reason why the chapter has been delayed some in even getting started. I'd like to have a few outlines in place before I get started on the next chapter and the ones that come after them. Don't worry, I will be continuing the story, but this one shot will be written and posted sometime(I hope) soon, too, so be on the outlook for it.

The only good news so far is I've already had Journey seconded for both categories. I'd like to thank Shawna 560 for seconding me! Now I only have to fret about the thirding period and the actual voting. I've been nominated for Best Drama and Best Serial in the Inuyasha Fanguild, if you'll recall.

Anyways, I better go beat up some characters who are so NOT behaving with me at the moment.

Until next time,

Far Away Eyes

I think all of the stories I nominated have already been seconded. I just hope my own make it, now.

Not all of mine have made it just yet, but I think we have a few more people to second things just yet. I'll be interested to see what makes it, that's for sure.

More should get seconded during the week. It's easier once they get the website updated where you can see what has and hasn't been done.

Very true. I'm actually waiting to second some things, mainly because you can't third in the same category.

And I really, really wish any of my stories would work with me..honestly.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. Unless something I really want is in need of a second later, I think I'll hold off.

I was finally able to get most of the chapter knocked out today (now I just hope inufan625 doesn't tell me it sucks when I get it finished and sent to her). But at least I was finally able to get going on this part.

Sigh. I figure I'll watch some TV (4400 and Venture Brothers) and take a bath and see if I can get ANYWHERE on either story. Hell, a paragraph, a decent sentence, anything. It's just so aggravating because I can hear and see these flashes of dialogue or scenery or movement, yet I can't get things started.

There certainly isn't much on televison tonight. It's pretty sad that I have digital cable with more channels than I can count (including something like 6 HBOS, all of the Starz channels and all of the Encore channels, and still can't find anything to watch. I found The Last Samarai on AMC, so its on for now. Mostly for background while I try to finish this chapter.

Those two shows I mentioned are about the only things I watch on Sundays, excluding baseball games, of course. I am just hoping if I can just sit myself down in my chair and lock on some headphones, I'll get something on the page that I can later work with and sculpt into something that is at least---good.

Hi Fae,
Sorry to hear you've got graphicus impairicus. Its not something you can't overcome. At least you're getting snippets of conversations and actions. That's a good place to start. Give a little definition to those small bits abd start building backwards and forwards from them. Soon the snippets will start joining and the story will come through. It works the same way when I'm designing a machine. You can't start at the ground and build up unless you know excatly where you want to go. If you know what you want to do, but not where to start, then begin with what you need to do and then work your way outward from there. You can always make adjustments later when you have more of a complete picture of what's going on. Well, no matter what, its up to you. Good luck, and keep dreaming. Oh, speaking of dreaming, sometimes a power nap after work can open interesting doors for your imagination. But you already know about that, right? Ja ne!


After I managed to sit down after my bath, I actually managed to get a page of the one-shot written. I'm really liking it. It has a lot of potential and I love the idea of it. I just hope that people will like it as much when it is finished and posted.

I also, while on my lunch break, have a few sentences I might work with to start the next chapter, so we'll see what happens with that. I'd like to have a chapter posted roughly around the voting period(I know, that's just bad, but I figure if I had a fresh offering, it might help. And if you don't try to make something happen, who will??)

Most of all, though, I am just glad Monday is over.

Ooohh.. Belgariad/Malloreon and IY...My favorites as well. I was browsing about for something decent to read-toddles off to read.

Ooo. A new reader...I will be interested to see what you have to seay. Let me know what ya think. I always love feedback! I'll just warn you...it's rather long.

63 Chapters :) I love long meaty fics.
Let me know what ya think.
Will do so. :)

I love the kitty picture, btw. I think I've seen all my cats have that face at one point.

And I'll be waiting to see your reaction!
