At the drop of a hat…

So… I think my attitude has changed about writing these past few months. I’ll let you in on a little secret. I have drafts of posts I have not published that reflected my utter dejection about my lack of writing. Frankly, I’ve missed it. I’ve missed the creating of characters. I’ve missed the fleshing out of a plot… of trying to find the voice in a story. I’ve missed the struggle of getting the ideas to come together.

It is a strange feeling to have those problems once again. It really has been a long time. I don’t even think I know anyone who would remember that once upon a time I called myself a writer. That I dreamed of getting published. When I was young, I was the type of person who sent in stories to contests like Writers of the Future. I even believed that one day I could win. Yes, I know I am far from being close to that caliber of writing and maybe I never will be. But perhaps, perhaps I can get there if I keep this up.

Now, if you will excuse me, I need to get my Flash Fiction Friday #6 together. I have to write fanfiction. Can you believe that! I’ve never written fanfiction in my life. It’s gonna be bad people. Just plain stinky. Should be fun.
