SOO, with the uncovering of a “writings journal” that consists of writings from my senior year of high school (a.k.a. 5 years ago…*whelp*) I thought that I would just stick my square ass wayy out there and post half of something that I have written from that time period…I mean, what better way to start putting my writings out there than by forcing myself to do it……

…I used to roleplay. Not the L.A. kind of roleplaying that makes up LARPing but the wordy kind of roleplay that let me create characters and stories right off the top of my head.
And when I used to roleplay, I actually liked it. And because I liked it, I actually started getting better at English. 0_0
But now, since (insert number here) years have passed since I have actively roleplayed anything, my almost-seemingly natural talent of creating characters and stories right off the top of my head have vanished. I’ve been wanting to get this talent back for quite some time now, but there are ultimately 2 problems that stand in the way of this.
One of those problems is my insistent “motivation” problem that has seemingly plagued me more and more the further I’ve gotten into schooling. Basically, I’m just typical-colleging almost everything in my life right now (which I need to turn around pronto….stat…..ASAP…..)
The other problem with this is that I’m just flat out scared to start putting my blurbs and writings out there for the world to see. I’m not grammar-nazi person, my writings look absolutely nothing like that of an actual author, and I’ve always struggled and sucked at English. I feel like I’m gonna get some comments that simply say “THIS SUCKS MAJOR BALLS” and stuff…..
So, what I’m going to do is this. Should I just take a leap of faith and start putting some of my stuff up on here?
