on writing...

I like to write. Okay, I know that is a blatant understatement, but I feel it needs to be said. Also, if I didn't state the obvious, I wouldn't have a lot to say most of the time.

Anyways, I like to write, but mainly I like to write fanfic. Yes, I'm one of those people. Though I don't do the fanfic porn, but I do like to take random characters from other places and put them in relationships of my choosing.

I'm working on 3 such stories right now. I wrote on multiple stories because every so often I get writer's block on one at the same time the dam breaks on another.

I usually don't like sharing my stories with other people before they are finished, but something in me just wants to share.

Okay, so my first one is an In Plain Sight story that actually stars a friend of mine. Usually I place some perfect version of myself in as the romantic lead (cause truthfully when you're writing your protagonist is always some part of yourself), but this time it morphed into my friend. I had 2 different stories going with this idea, both with the same main character. They were essentially the same story, but the backgrounds were different. My star, Alexandria "Xandi" Powell, was in a relationship with Marshall. One version, she was in the program, and the other she wasn't. The one were she was in the program died quickly as I really didn't think it fit the character. I mean, it would be a cool twist, but it didn't work out. So I ran with the later and soon I had her beat beyond recognition and in the hospital.

My stories land in the hospital a lot. I like to attribute that to the fact that I'm very morbid. But I digress...

My second story is a Criminal Minds story. My star this time is Orla Wallace-Lynch. She's a genius who, because of some special circumstances, is writing fluff pieces for a local newspaper. She could have gone on to be a famous cellist, but she had a son when she was 16 and that stopped her dreams. As the story progresses, we find that her son's father has come back to town, which is a problem as he is a serial killer. The love connection in this one is with Reid. What can I say, I like geeks. And there is nothing wrong with that!

The one that I've been putting the most time in recently is my CSI:NY fanfic, though I'm trying to stray away from the actually cast and focus on a very minor character, Reed Garrett.

Only now did I realise that 2 of my characters are in love with a guy named Reed (Reid). Weird.

Anyways, my girl this time is named Alma (no last name yet) and she's a theatre student at New School University. Her downfall is that she's got a photographic, eidetic memory which may not seem like a bad thing, but she is also epileptic. I'm not too far into this story, so I don't know how everything runs together yet, but something horrible is going to happen. It's just how my mind works. Most likely I will be killing off her roommate, but she's kinda annoying, so it's worth it.

I do have other non-fanfic stories locked in various notebooks floating around me room. One I'm really proud of and trying to adapt into a screenplay. Yes, I said screenplay. I would love to work in the movies, mainly behind the scenes. I want to direct something so badly! I have a clip on YouTube that I did for a class. The only problem my teacher had with it was that I didn't fade in from black at the beginning. Other than that he said it was darn near perfect. But you can judge for yourself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGNTBOC9tdY

I've gotten off topic... And lost my train of thought.... Oh shoot!.....

Well, that's about it for me today. I've been typing out my stories so I have them on a flash drive. That way I can edit them at any point instead of trying to find the individual notebook and working in that. So I'm off to continue typing things out.


Fiser, OUT!
