Everyone that knows me just shakes their head, "Yeah... she's weird" and leaves it at that lol. And my ex gets mad at me for word-count-padding and not "finishing" my novels. Not fleshing any of them out into a full, real novel fit for publishing. Sigh.

Well... he did say the things that irritate him about me are the same things he dislikes about himself... lack of follow through.

Yeahh I have a TON of really great and unique ideas but i get caught up in the "proper" way to do things. I have no idea about emotional arcs and plot holes and schtuff like that so when I re-read my writings months later I'm like "Gah...how boring. What drivel...." so on and so forth so I discourage myself even before I take the first step Tongue And of course, after working so diligently on ONE novel for four weeks by the end I want to throw it out the window  Cheesy So I getcha Eclectic.
  Isi= no follow-through gal too =/

But honestly my brain is like---numb right now when it comes to thinking about crafting for "writing." I burnt myself out a while ago. Haven't picked up a single crafty thing in months O_O (ikr? How COULD I?!  Shocked) I'd need to research some stuff to even put answers on the questionnaire for the new NaNo swap  Wink
