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, I think the process of writing is different for everyone, and different methods will work for you depending on how you think. ^_^ Dialogue for me is the easiest bit, because it plays out in my head like a movie. If you've got your characters and your plot/situations, you're definitely at an advantage - sometimes all you need to do is sit for a while and think about how it all plays out in the "movie" in your mind. ^_~ That should make the dialogue come much easier than just sitting down and trying to force it out. And then, the great thing about dialogue is that the incidental details will create themselves - your characters will be interacting according to their personalities, and things will just come up. ^_^ You're inevitably gonna hit some snags, trying to reconcile the characters with where you want the story to go, so when that happens, take a step back and try to work it out like a knot, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, I'm sure you'll get past your block. ^_^ Ganbatte!
