I Met My Best Friend Online by holls




Konnichiwa, minna san!  :iconsayhiplz:
Hi, Everyone!

Long time no see…  or update.  Wow! They changed things around again, I see.  

I’m confused that I still have a premium membership.  NOT to say I’m complaining or anything…  I just didn’t think I set up a payment option or anything and if I did then I need to figure out how to edit that. ^^;

So, I haven’t been here since August… right before I returned to work after the summer.  Wow, has a lot happened since then…

Well I made it through my first semester back in college to get my BA in Early Childhood Education.  It’s been tough, working full time while going to school part time and taking care of three kids.  

Work has gone back to being stressful again.  I just don’t understand why people have to make other people miserable just because they are miserable themselves…  *sigh* Lots of BS going on, there…

On the other hand, I FINALLY wrote my last assignment for the Long Ridge Writer’s Group.  
scontent-b-ord.xx.fbcdn.net/hp…

Unfortunately, I haven’t been published yet…  With work and school, I haven’t had the time to look through the writing market to find anyone who might be interested.  It’s only a 3000 word short story, though.  Originally, I wanted to take the characters from my Original Short Story, “Forbidden Attraction:”   Forbidden AttractionForbidden Attraction:
"Your hair is so beautiful, why do you always keep it tied up?" She asked me.  I was sitting on the edge of the bed, straight-backed and stiff.  She was sitting behind me, having just untangled the loose bun at the nape of my neck.  
"Because it is such a hassle to care for," I replied.  She gently pulled her fingers through my waist length hair.
"Then why don't you cut it?" I felt as she slowly ran the brush through my hair, taking proper care around any tangles.
I loved it when my hair was being brushed and closed my eyes to let out a sigh of contentment.   I didn't have an answer for her.  As much as my hair annoyed me, it had taken so long to grow this long, and it seemed like a waste to cut it.  My hair grew really slow; it wasn't like I could donate it to Locks of Love and expect that it would grow back within a year or two.  It had taken nearly 10 years to grow.
 and expand their story.  I wanted to give some exposure and support to the bisexual community.  In asking some of the members from BiNetUSA for ideas, someone had suggested that I include a transgender character.  While I’ve done a lot of research on the topic, it is very difficult to research on.  Also, I realized that in order to do justice to the LGBT community, especially the Bisexual and Transgender community, I’d have to write something way longer than 3000 words (which was my word limit for my assignment.)  I didn’t give up on the idea, but I had to put that idea on hold to come up with another idea.  

Casey James has a new single out called, ”Fall Apart.”  After hearing the song a few times, It struck me that I could write a great story for it, like I did with all of the song’s for his first album: gentlewolf.deviantart.com/gall….

BUT…  I didn’t want to write the expected…  What everyone thinks about the song when they listen to it.  I wanted to make it original to me, somehow.  So…  I decided to put a twist on it.  I wrote about a homosexual couple; a lesbian and a bisexual.  I kept the song in mind for maybe the first page, but then the story took off and wrote itself.  I through in a bit of my personal experience and some of my personal desires.  

I don’t know how it turned out, because I never heard back from my instructor.  I guess she gave up on me after I took so long getting the assignment done.  It’s to be expected, I guess.  To be honest, though, I’m really self conscious about the story, though.  Gods, I can’t even remember what I titled it…  ^^;  

You see it mostly focuses on the negative assumptions that a lot of people have about bisexuals.  My main character is actually my antagonist, so it’s kind of weird.  You go through the story with a character who has all of these biased, negative assumptions about bisexuals.  She is turned around by the end of the story, though…  but I feel bad about the story because of these biases and the way I’ve portrayed the main character and because the story doesn’t include anything for the other orientations.  

I was thinking of seeing if I could somehow submit it to Bi Magazine, but I don’t think they’d take it.

Honestly, I’d almost rather stick with writing fanfiction.  I know I have fans and people who like my stories, that way.  Wow, I still have people reading, liking, and requesting that I finish my Card Captor Sakura fanfic series.  

After watching the Finale of Legend of Korra, though… OMGs, I REALLY Want to write some Korrasami fanfics!  :iconveryexcitedplz: OMGs, I LOVE IT!!!  Kudo’s to everyone who predicted it happening.  While I’ve kept up with the series every week, I haven’t had much time to keep up with all the fanart.  I honestly thought it was just wishful thinking, but OMGs, I’ve Totally fallin on Ship!!! :love: :XD:

I have two weeks off from work and from school…  I’d like to get some writing done during that time.  I hope that I can make it happen.

For now, however, I seriously need some sleep.  So, I will hopefully catch up with y’all in the next day or two.

Oyasumi

Ja Matane!
