Once again, probably because of the illness or because of the depression, I’m starting to feel self conscious about my writing. It could just very well be that i’m not as awesome as I thought I was.
This is the one thing that I’ve told my brother often that you should not be afraid of rejection. For most of the time, I’m not afraid of it. I live for it and I thrive off of it. I know that each rejection letter gets me one step closer to my overall goal of becoming a freelance writer.
Every thing in life is a learning experience and I still have a lot of learning to do.
I have to say that this not my favorite series so far. I tend to hate things that are way too serious.
The previous series was happy in overall tone and mood. It had some downer moments, but it was mostly upbeat. Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph were upbeat people that remembered to have a good time whenever they needed to.
The Legend of Korra starts off in a downer way and it does not let up from there. Korra wants to be the youngest avatar to master the elements, apart from Aang. Having skewed priorities from the get go will lead to trouble down the line.
I’ll probably hold my judgment until later on in the series.
So far, I’ve sold about 2 articles and are in the process of writing two more.
I’ve written about ten reviews for Gamesmarker.com. My first few articles were kind of shit, but I’m getting better at it. I’ve gotten better at the reviewing that I can base my entire review on playing the game for about eight hours
The biggest accomplishment is that I’ve ghost written an article for a frequently visited atheist site.
Also, I’ve pitched about 5 articles to the Escapist Magazine. I have to wait until they tell me they are not interested in the article until I take it somewhere else. I know that there is an market for them, but they do not fit the niche of the market.
I still need to learn the fine art of self editing.I am getting better at that, but right now I have a lot of work to do.
Oh well, pretty soon, I am going to get further in it. It might start off slow, but eventually I will have my freelance writing career I always wanted.
It seems like every time Lucas takes a shit nowadays, a fanboy is there to complain about it. A lot of Star Wars fans that are my age are now complaining a blue streak because he told Entertainment Weekly that Greedo always fired first.
Who cares about this. Your memories are not tainted because Lucas changed his mind. What are you afraid of? That somehow you would forget.
Get over it.
If you dare to say your honest opinion of Joss Whedon’s work, his fanbase gets offended by it. This fanbase takes any sort of slight against their lord and master and they try to defend him as best they could. They way they take out their offensiveness to things is that they find the thing that hurts them so bad and they do whatever is in their power to
I really do not get this. He is a writer that got lucky twice with Buffy and Angel and he’s been writing those shows ever since. His other series, Firefly is remembered because of potential and that’s it. This series could be so amazing if only we bothered to take the time to watch it when it was new.
The thing that I don’t understand is that he does not need the protection at all. There is nothing I can say or do that will register with him. I am not his enemy, nor are you guys under standing orders to crush any opposition.
People don’t like him. Get over it and move on with your lives.
Yesterday, I woke up in a weird mood. I was feeling kind of sick, so I did not do a whole lot of things.
Actually, I am not sure if sick is the correct term for it. I woke up with a massive headache that much is really true, and I did not do a lot beyond that.
Well, that is something of a lie as well. After going to sleep close to 8:00, I woke up close to midnight. Because there was something bugging me and I had to express my concerns as best as I could. I wrote it out and that calmed me down. But I still could not sleep, so I stayed up and took out my frustrations on a video game called Dark Souls.
Yesterday, I actually spent some time trying to find ways to write on the internet for fame and money.
I sent a query to the Escapist for an article idea that I had.
I contacted the editor at a website for gaming as well.
I’ve even sent a query for a movie related site as well.
Today, I’ll do it for Atheism, Comicbooks and nostalgic sites.
Eventually, I’ll write more on this blog, but I need to get some motivation soon.
