The unusual thoughts of Datasize

A Little Update
datasize
So, I've been busy.
Kind of. Making plans with old friends and such :)
Actually, making plans for today was possibly the most stupid thing I've ever done.

Surprise!

So I managed to get online tonight!
To be honest, I wasn't expecting to, but things worked out this way.

So inspiration hit my hard today. I'm proud of everything I've achieved with my story. My friend from school and my boyfriend are reading over it to give me feedback and I'm really happy that they agreed to it. I really appreciate them.

Anyway, that's it for tonight. I'm rather tired.

Goodnight all.

One of the few updates I'll manage this week

So I'm not likely to be online much this week.
Sorry, but this week is going to be a busy one. Yesterday, I had a driving lesson and just didn't find the time to get on here. Today, I'm only posting a quick update as I have an assignment to do. Tomorrow, I'll be taking said assignment 50 miles to uni - yes, I commute to uni. My assignment isn't even due until the 20th, haha. I'll be out the majority of the day, as while I'm out, I'll be shopping with a friend of mine I have known for approx. 8 years, that I don't get to see very often :( Thursday I can see possiblities of me getting on here, but I'm not 100% if I can. Friday is a no-go though, I'm afraid. In the morning I will be attending the funeral of a family friend I have known for years, who died aged 42 of a heart attack. RIP Simon. In the afternoon, I have a relative travelling halfway across the world to visit us. It will be a very mixed day friday. So if I am unable to post thursday, I will post next monday (as I work weekends).

Anyway, here's a little update on my story. If I'm quite honest, I've found very little time to write much at all this week. That doesn't mean I've stopped writing though!

Unfortunately, I've hit a bit of a brick wall :( I need to include a poem in the part of the story where I'm at and the last two lines are absolutely insistant that they will not come to me. It's a very basic poem, nothing fantastic, as it's not meant to be amazing. If anyone is good at poems, PM and I'll send you my poem for you to edit. I don't want to post it on here as I want the story to be finished before anyone sees it, unless someone wishes to edit for me. You must have an open mind!

Anyways, that's it for today! Wish me luck for my assignment!


Research
datasize
So I recieved some feedback.
A lot of it was rather interesting, and very inspirational.
Definitely given me some interesting points to consider when writing my story.
So after reflecting upon the ideas of others, I furthered my own ideas and carried out some research into the myths of fairies, to give my story a bit of background.
What I discovered...Collapse )

Hello
datasize
So today I joined LiveJournal.
If I'm completely honest - and today, I will be - I've been trawling the internet for something a little like this.
I am obviously not oblivious to the existance of LJ, I just never thought about it, until I saw a friend's blog on here.


I have personally been working on something that somewhat represents a poor attempt at a novel type thing. Well, to the point, I have been writing a story that just won't leave my head. Even while I'm asleep, I realise that the more I write of my story, the more it comes to me (and more the damn thing changes).

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not going to publish it - or even attempt to - as I know it's nothing near brilliant. But I just have this burning desire to finish it. I've written almost 20,000 words, and I'm not happy with all of them. I did actually have more, but I did genuinely delete about 5,000 words just because I suddenly decided that what I was writing was all wrong - it just didn't work. So far, I have three main characters - as you could call them. The story is so very difficult to sum up - mainly because I don't know where it's going just yet. I have a very basic idea, but it's highly likely to change again. It's a  very strange story, and I feel that it's going to be very very long. But it's just for my benefit, so I don't mind - I understand what is happening, but I'm trying to write it so that if I was to not think about it for a number of years, I would be able to read through it and know exactly what it's about.
