So, I've kind of ditched the whole 'NaBloPoMo' thing. It's just not working out for me. Yeah, and last's month's writing contest didn't work out so well either. The novel just didn't want to be written. However, I'm not giving up on the novel writing quite yet. I'm attempting JulNoWriMo, but trying something different. You see, I'm just trying to write 50,000 words, not a novel, which means, this blog counts.

It the past week, I've worked more on the shorter obscure stories that have been sitting in dusty files on my computer, than I have in the past year. It's pretty great. Not to mention that I'm working on Involuntary Notions again, and The Brotherhood. My fanfic fans are thrilled, let me tell you.

The Brotherhood, my main fanfic at the moment, is coming to a close. I only have about four or five chapters left. It should be finished before the end of the month. The problem is, The Brotherhood was my first multi-chapter fanfic ever posted on the internet. I started it over two years ago, finished it, then rewrote it to make it four times as long. Now, it's finishing up again and I don't want to leave my story behind. I might just have to write a sequel, although I have no idea what it would be about. It's almost sad.

If I can get so attached to characters that aren't really mine, what'll happen once my novel is published and I am done with the characters I actually created? Now I know why people create series, because they love their characters so much......

On a slightly different note, Lydia keeps telling me to write a story where the world explodes in a billion different pieces and everyone dies. I keep amusing myself by imagining my novel ending that way, but its not going to happen. Still, I might end a fanfic that way, and annoy all my fans.

I like annoying my fans. Today's chapter of my fanfic, and the next two chapters I have written but not posted, all end in major cliffhangers. Yes, my fans are going to kill me. I may just have to go into least on the internet.
