At this moment, I'm working on a small chapter for "Follower of Mibuno"(Seishin/Pure Heart) to raise my writing and creativity enthusiasm.
For a good month or so, my writing self-esteem wasn't very high. Even though I feel a bit better now, I still think my writing is terrible and it looks like I am nearly incapable of learning from mistakes. One of my biggest faults must be simple sentence structure (or grammar) and exposition.
Then again, I could be too hard on myself. That real Eastern feel that I want to aim for in Seishin seems very difficult, so because of time and difficulty, I've decided to make the stories of Seishin short (with short chapters). I wanted to make this my policy for general writing, but it hasn't been turning out that way ;) I'll keep trying; again, look forward to next Mibuno chapter and tell me what you think.
Also, I'm getting that patriotic, "appreciation of heroes"; feeling again so I might work on United We Soar soon too.
August 29: Surprise everybody. Before I work on UWS and SolAka, I just uploaded the VERY SHORT prologues of three new works from my above-mentioned Seishin ninja Series: The Follower of Mibuno, Jumping Monkey, and Autumn Grove. I hope I do Japan, especially Feudal Japan justice.
I enjoyed typing them up, so I hope you enjoy them too (while I lag in UWS and SolAka). Now these are short stories, which means they may have another chapter or two before completion. I won't get very far in these at all and I need to think up more storylines for the different characters that I have planned down already.

Okay, I finished a new chapter for one of my Fanfiction.net so now I'm going back to my original works. I have a lot to do "United We Soar" (UWS) and "SolAka: (HBSA) are still difficult stories for me to do, but are very fun to work on. For the past few weeks I haven't been in a writing mood, so I took time off to regain my focus and motivation. I still think I'm not that positive, but I'll keep trying.
Also, a few days ago, the last chapter of "United We Soar" was edited.
