Another ramble, more friendly. This is update on stories.

United We Soar
I feel like I'm really stuck, I made this story to focus on the mind of a new fighter pilot, especially when he is entering his first combat operations. I also wanted to create a fighter plane. But in regards to the details behind the war, and how the story will end, I am really stuck. The next chapter has to do with a phone call, and shouldn't take my long at all. Afterward is the start of a combat mission. I must've really messed up going along with this.

Stalwart Silver
I am told a few times that it is "well-written" and that I should publish it in other places. Extremely flattering. But, SS feels like a waste. I will complete it, but it feels like a shallow and pointless story. The idea was for an uncanny boy to understand "loving" a mortal. At the least, to learn how to show empathy outside of duty. It might be impossible for me in a short story.

Seishin Ninja Series
I can't think of anything. I have many characters and I just can't craft any plot ideas. I don't know what it is. I must be really stubborn in wanting to make this series good, and because of that I hesitate. I still think, "It's not Japan..." "It's not what I want to convey", "I feel like I must do research", "my research is limited".

If this continues, the Iga Tensho stories won't happen in years.

SolAka
Always difficult, but I enjoy the story. I can't wait to show more. Also, there might be a 2nd season.
I recently rekindled my interest but I need alone time to focus better.

Hello Monday, and Hello September.



Nothing to upload just yet.

Throughout maybe the last two months, I have been fighting against my low writing and creativity enthusiasm. I didn't have much focus either. I'm sure it's been said various times before but I don't think my writing is that great. My biggest problem IMO is sentence and phrase structuring (or just the way of grammar), and effective exposition. Maybe pacing as well.

It is a terrible combination, but can be expected from an amateur writer.

Not only do I think my writing isn't that good, I also get this funny feeling that I'm not learning anything new, or rather I can't find a way to fix my mistakes.

I could be being too hard on myself or I'm just forgetting some things.

If anything, I can get confused easily.

Nothing happened before the "hiatus" nor did anyone tell me anything. I just went into a slump and wanted to stay away from the computer a little while. Occasionally, I would write.

Ironically, you often commit job search to the computer.

Anyways, would posting more about English Syntax and creative writing make me more confident?

Let's start with some refreshing on basics:

Adjective
Adverb
Clause
Conjunction
Modifier
Mood
Noun
Person
Phrase
Preposition
Personal pronoun
Pronoun
Sentence
Singular & Plural
Subject
Tense
Verb
Voice

Questions I'd like to ask and (when I have time) answer myself. Just something to think over:


Why do I like BACCANO?
Why do I like BASILISK?
Why do I like Y + M?
Why do I think will male a good ninja story?
How to make a compelling story line/plot?
What causes negative criticism?
Why am I slow in thinking up plot (or why do I find it difficult?)

I am currently working on the 2nd chapter of Pokefighters. It is still difficult to do, and I am giving myself about three or four hours. I should look under my writer block tag for hints.

Here's something else, I want to share something: THUNDER FORCE FOREVER and Adventures of Flute. Did some internet surfing and found SS (short stories) based on Thunder force, and a pal told me about Flute, a mother's story to her child about a timid boy. Both are on Japanese.

I use an online translator to read them, but EVEN if they aren't completely clear and accurate, it's still fun to read.
