Fan-fic depression.
Wednesday, November 21, 2007

I’m on my last chapter of La Escorpiona. I know how it ends. And I’m upset that it’s not the result I had chosen. I won’t go into details (for the two of you actually read it- how can 90+ read a story and yet 0 people have yet to comment- makes me grr) but all is not well in happy land.

I also feel anxiety about ending the series. I know I have made mistakes and yet I want to see the character live “happily ever after.” Yet the challenges still haunt me. Especially since she is deemed Mary-sueish.

I don’t know. I feel turned off to write anymore off canon characters. Hell I will probably just stick to reading the stuff. I am glad that my fic is not going to be 50 chapters long. I wish I could write that much.

Should I feel this way? Should I make a sequal? A separate this fic??

Is anyone reading this story?

Don't worry too much. I think there's a lot of folk out there not commenting because of the hack of the BSR, and that seems to have alienated some. I've had a similar problem, with sometimes near 200 reads and maybe only two comments. It can be depressing because you tend to worry that you're not good enough. But don't. Write for you - that's what it should all be about.

I'm sorry I haven't kept up...but I think maybe people were turned off by it because it's got an original character interacting with the ol' BDMs. That bugs most people. You had a great and refreshing idea, but ya know, not everybody goes for that kinda thing. I myself suck at the OC writing so I avoid it.
