Getting it off my chest.

Apparently someone on this board is angry with me again. I remembered the first time posting a story when a member said one line and left the thread: " I strongly suggest you not become a writer." I didn't know what to make of it at first, as I had expected something more or less.. tangible to hold on to. Well, I suppose I won't become a writer. I like to write, though. Isn't that enough? I don't believe I'll ever get published, but I'd like to finish a novel once (even if I never send it in, even if it's no good), if only for piece of mind.

Angry people always remind me of my mother. She's a really nice woman at times, especially now that she's thinking of retirement. Some people say, the older they get the crankier they get, but I don't believe that. She's gone softer. But when I think of my mother, I don't evoke images of my mother [Now]. I think of all the times she's said [ Suck it up. I'm not going to feel sorry for you even when you cry ], and it's true! She never has! And well, I've never cried after that either.

I suppose I always come off sounding bitchy and defensive online. It happened once on an anime and manga forum, though I've made a lot of friends and progressed since then. And the guy and I are friends: We just agree to disagree. Tone is everything. This is why I hate big chunks of text. There's no real voice for it, except for the one the reader has in their head: They read me like I'm a raving lunatic, lol. Well, sometimes I am. Most of the time though, I'm really not.
