I never thought I would ever stain my memory with a recollection of writing a blog, but here I am. I just realized how over written that is. But I stand by it!
I guess I should start writing more than just comments on my surprise of me having a blog.
Wow... I have nothing to write. I guess I should just start with the beginning of my writing. Other than class assignments the first thing I ever wrote was a story called "A twin adventure." It was a bit of pokemon fanfiction, and I originally posted it on a site called "The pokemon tower." Later I realized how much that site sucked, but at the time I thought it was pretty popular. It was about two boys, who, you guessed it, went on a journey through one of the regions from the game. It was quite possibly one of the most cliched things I have ever read, and I wrote it! On a side note, if you would like to keep your face, do not visit thepokemontower.com. IT HURTS!
After that I found the forum pokecommunity.com. This was about a year ago. I posted "A twin adventure" there, only to learn two things. One: I had never received any constructive criticism, and two: I knew very little about plot construction. After seeing the seemingly negative reaction, I dropped the story like a hot piece of toast.
I then started writing "Absol tales" my first attempt at writing a thriller. It got a better reaction, and while writing it I learned to distinguish constructive criticism from flat out insults.
Even so, I was unable to complete "Absol tales." I soon moved onto a series of one chapter ideas, until I stumbled upon my idea for "Iron man." No, not the Black Sabbath song. I have to admit, while I have put it on delay to write something original, it is my favorite.
Six months and many failed attempts later, I finally have a story I know I can finish and will. It originated as a story for my English class; a simple Sci-Fi story for our fiction unit. I didn't even finish it, and my teacher gave me an A. I also doubled the second highest length in my class. (My apologies if it seems like I'm bragging.)
And so I'm here. I finally found a forum dedicated purely to writing. And I'm happy.
Until next time.
