Trying to do more writing this summer. So far, I've done more during the semester. Though...that really isn't saying much but...progress is progress? Let's stick with that. Been trying not to rush myself and to write the best story possible, which I think I'm capable of if I give just the right amount of time, effort and consideration. I hope I'm doing what I've set out to do; I want to write in this particular way one person got it and another didn't but I guess that happens; I don't want to beat people over the head with information - I want to show them things, not tell them (that's the Golden Rule of Writing right?) and I think I've been doing that. Hopefully I'm doing it well :).

Always thought I should write faster and that I take too long these days to write something, but a very good friend reminded me that I should not rush myself and I should take my time with my writing and craft the best story I can. It's very good advice and he is right but I think it'd sit better with me if in between writing I spent more time thinking about and planning the story instead of watching anime, movies and TV. The reading won't be detrimental to my writing :P.

Oh yes, been reading a lot more now. Love it. It's like I always have another book I want to read. And I always feel strange now if I'm not reading. Most of it is what would be considered Young Adult novels - which I always shuddered at the thought of reading. Some are good, some...not so good...some I can't understand the hype. But hopefully I am getting as many examples of how to write as much as I am how not to write; quite a few have taught me the latter and I sincerely hope I am not doing any of things I didn't like about their writing.

Anyhoo, there is more writing to be done. There is a very good story rolling around in this brain and I need to get it down :3.
