Diary time! *w*
|I'm going to use this blog to keep personal as well as public plans and ideas, or announcements if I need them.|
|Hi everyone, thought I would try posting another blog entry.
I've enjoyed my time at WDC so far. Normally I'm used to joining sites for sharing art, but not writing until now. I'm glad I took a chance on it though, and the premium membership also felt worth it.
I often get ideas for my stories very frequently, and I'd like to jot them down quicker. But sometimes I suppose I feel a bit held back. I'd like to really try to be myself here as much as possible, but I feel self-conscious about my work. I think most who are reading this right now know that I really like writing about the bathroom and those sort of topics, but I hate to think it's all I could be known for. It's a part of me that I have to explore, but feels really embarrassing to have that part be the majority of my representation.
I hope I'm not overthinking everything. I'd gladly try to write new stories, but I hope that if anyone looks at a more generalized story, they wouldn't be put off by my 'potty-pants' collection or my interactive story. I'm just going to try to trust that people will have open minds and that there shouldn't be any trouble.
As for my impression of others here, a few users have been very nice to me ^^ though I'm not sure if I should link here or even how to link properly. As for the interactive stories I've visited, what I'd like to suggest is putting a little bit more effort into some of the stories. I realize we're all mainly interested in one subject here, but that can't be all there is to a story.
Suggestions for Interactive Story chapter writers
- Develop the situation! I've seen so many single or double sentence entries and it hurts me inside. It sometimes seems a character will have a great opening by the previous author, only to be continued by someone who'll give a scant few lines of narration or dialogue followed by a choice that treads the same ground as the last ones. What I suggest for writers who fall into this category is to not be afraid of adding new things to the story, or the effort that one has to take when adding new things to a story.
- Forge ahead! This is something I'd like to do more myself, which is to really try to direct 'my' portion of stories into a direction I'd like, or one that I think everyone would like, a diverse situation. I notice that sometimes the situation will languish while a few different writers play tennis with the remaining choices, furthering nothing about the story. What I suggest for writers who fall into this category is to try to tell us something new about the overall situation, and then build a bridge for us readers to that point.
I have other concerns but I do realize a lot of these interactive stories were written years ago, half of the writers either ending up being suspended, deleted or just away from the site. But for those reading this now, why don't we start our own wave of stories and such?
Anyway! That being said, what would you like me to write more about? I have plenty of ideas, but I'm saving some of them to illustrate, since I'd love to be more of a storybook artist or a comic artist, and a lot of ideas I want to reserve for that. But in the meantime, if there's any sort of story (potty-related or not) I'd really like to hear about it. I'm going to try to be a bit more open with my ideas, and just write em down as they come out, if possible. I'm also sort of afraid to attempt to make more humorous, joke-y posts since I'm not sure everyone will get my sense of humor or references. But we'll see! What would you like to see more from me? Feel free to comment or mail me!
Extra: By the way, I'm interested in learning how to write about potty stuff or other stuff in any form, but also in your language! I'd love to learn about this stuff in other languages ^^
