Alright I think...
I can't seem to get the motivation to write. I'm stuck on my fanfic and I'm stuck on my own work. It sucks. I want to write, but every time I go to do it, I feel like everything's crap.
It seems to be a recurring thing these days

I bet your writing ROCKS. We all have our doubts. But we just gotta keep trucking on and move on from feeling like our writing is crap.

I want to write. But in order to write, I need to plot, and I don"t want to plot. So I can't write.

Gaahhh

Random, but does this part of a scene sound threatening enough?

Quote:
Anna sauntered into his room with no pause for thought. “Sorry. You know it's Rich's party tonight, right?”
Joel narrowed his eyes on her as she hovered by his desk where he had his diary. It was wide open for that days entry. He'd not had a chance to organise himself before leaving.
“You'll be there, right?” she asked when he didn't reply. She was looking at him, almost scrutinising him. “Right?”
“Why do you care?”
She shrugged, her red hair flicking over her shoulder with the motion, her eyes luminous against the lamp light in his small room. “I just can't shift this feeling that something big is going to happen.”
He smirked. “So you're psychic now?”
“Hardly.” She tossed back. “I just...” The knot of her eyebrows made him realise she was being serious. She was worried about something; he could feel it.
“Stop it!” he almost shouted. She looked startled.
“I'm not doing anything!”
He felt his breathing escalate. “Stop feeling all those... things. It's bad enough that you bother me in person without having to share your stupid...”
Her eyes darkened; she flashed closer to him, making him jump. The paleness of her skin a bright white in the shadow. Her lips blood red.
Don't call me stupid.”

All of the holiday entries for TMB are done. Now for the birthdays. But first I'm going to update my iPod for later.

Hey, Ely!

ETA: For some reason, I can't decide whether or not I want Prudence, the MC of TMB, to be the same age as me or not...

INDEX CARDS. Especially if you have a floor or table to spread them over. :3

Taylor & MA - Plot! Plot! Plot! It's not as bad as it sounds especially if you have writing software to organize all of your notes.

Well I downloaded a demo of Liquid Story Binder a while back, so my thirty days is almost up. I also have Storybook and Celtx which are both free. Although Celtx is used specifically for screenwriting...you can use it to write a novel too.

I'm going to check them out. Like, now. Thanks

And, yes, I am. It's really addictive. I've completed one series in less than a week, I believe (I would've done so sooner, but I was watching Sherlock episodes again over the weekend )

I have had to move my index cards. I think when there are loads, I'm going to have to move them so they're facing the door...

Put them on a ring or something so they won't take up so much space.

They're going to go on the wall. They're on the floor for arranging purposes.

Also, HPDH = Excellet plotting music.

And, I agree. Most soundtracks are great writing music.
