Scribblings of a Mad Writer

This. Absolutely this. People who dumb themselves down are not really living up to their full potential. That is wrong but everybody is allowed to make their own choices, because that’s what freewill is all about.

If this is really what you want I can totally try to figure something out.

“Don’t make stuff because you want to make money — it will never make you enough money. And don’t make stuff because you want to get famous — because you will never feel famous enough. Make gifts for people — and work hard on making those gifts in the hope that those people will notice and like the gifts.”

Oh yeah, you create because that is what you want to do. Money and fame are more bonuses than anything else.

“You see, in my view a writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, because everything she does is golden. In my view a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.”

So, as a way to keep my brain from stalling too much on any one story I have been working on a new fanfic. So between writing and editing my more professional stuff I have been writing another Harry Potter fic. Harry is the main character this time, just to show that I can write more than just girls being in love. Whenever I get stuck on something in my Interlude story or The Amulet of Adventure I write a bit. I have found that working on a less important story while I am writing others can really help my creativity and speed in writing. I have no idea how or why it works but it does.

Anyway, if you want to read it I have two chapters posted already at the usual venues. So, here are the links to Harry Potter and Grief’s Wisdom.
