I have no plans for New Year's Eve. How lame is that? What do you people do for New Year's Eve in this country? In my country is more like a family holliday, so I've never had to worried about plans...

I hate Christmas. Especially when I don't get to spend it crying in my bedroom, but with a family that's not my own. I want this day and tomorrow to be over.

Winter hate

cold

current mood: cold

I'm starting to hate winter. Which is saying something because winter used to be my favorite season ever. But now my hands hurts, my lips hurts, Christmas and New Year Eve are a few days away, I can't go run. Maybe I just need my winter back. The one that happens in July and that is slyly hotter than this one.

Why do I have to keep everything in my head? Why can't I write at least a little something everyday? Why can't my back clear my check deposit from Saturday?

so you want to write fanfictions on the internets by traveller
A loosely organized and certainly incomplete manifesto for you, Dear Writer, containing advice,
suggestions, tips, positive affirmations, and a great many four letter words.
It's not the first one I've read, but I like it and I don't want to lose it.

Tense Present
by David Foster Wallace.
I don't want to lose this neither.

About awful published fiction

Don't you start reading some published work sometimes and go, Oh, come on!

Seriously, how are these people being published?

I'm not a writer for several reasons (I don't know how to tell a story and I'm awful with grammar and style, for starters), but I can tell when a character seams real, when the storyteller doesn't establish the same point more than a necessary amount of times, and even when they are at least little consistent with style. And still, some works out there! It hurts my eyes when by mistake I start reading one of them.

I wasn't like this last year, but then I start reading some material about grammar, style, storytelling, and writing in general, and I realized that the stories I liked the most were the ones that followed those guides. Real characters, consistency, un-redundancy, etc, etc. Now I can't read fan fiction where the author doesn't even know about grammar. I make mistakes writing; I know that. But most of these people are supposed to have betas. Isn't their job to help with grammar, style, and other kind of writing issues?

Anyway, fan fiction is like a whole other world. Why do I have to see all that in published fiction? What about the editors and the companies with the money?

And then you have all these amazing writers fighting to get published.
