The times and tribulations of reaching for your dream..  
A pretty ticket..... Look what finally came in the mail.. tickets to Nagayan's Xmas party event on the 17th! They look like postcards, they're really pretty and red. I always enjoy his fanclub events, so this should be good!! I got two of the tickets, and Aloni should have the other two, so we're all set for fun next Saturday night! ^^ It feels like forever since I've been to an event, but it hasn't really been all that long, or is it that I've done a lot of other fun things with my friends instead recently, so it feels like a lot of time in between events??

I'm trying to catch up on belated emails, but it's a long and winding road to follow, so those that are still waiting... I promise I'll get to you!!

It seems I'm inherently unable to write stories, and this is hanging me up seriously on my manga. Don't get me wrong-- I love writing. Words intrigue me, and maybe this is why I write on my journal so often. I also love to make up plot lines and characters and situations. But writing it all down in a story format makes me want to turn my attention to something else. I desperately want to draw it, I LOVE drawing... but it's the writing out every little thing and the beginning draft of the dialogue that I don't feel that I care to do. I really, really need to get past this. Does anyone have any tips on getting yourself to want to write when you don't really want to write? Is there even anyone who knows what I mean? O.o

Here's to teaching myself more discipline. ファイト、火ちゃん、ファイト!!!!! いつまでも挑み続けて行こう!

Well...usually, when I can't write but need to...I read other stories/mangas/fanfic, maybe just to get an idea. Or reread my favorite books, ones that have inspired me before.

Sometimes, I also outline things...like what I want to happen, the ideas I want to get across with this particular part, and how it gets to that point. Then I fill in with fluff and that's usually a scene there...

I dunno if that helps...I write stories and such, but I dunno if that would help with drafting manga. ^_^;
