News:

So wow, I couldn't keep yet another promise I made on DA (is referring to the big project mentioned in her former journal entry). Well, that's not new...

Anyway, the title of this journal is not referring to that, but to my recent deviations. I've been posting some writing over the last few weeks and am amazed that I only got 1 comment on it. 1 freakin' comment for a total of 9 deviations. It makes me wonder whether it's even worth it to continue.

To illustrate, I've also recently joined fanfiction.net and posted Soul Division there. I hardly did anything and random people I don't know have been responding with kind and motivating words. Some even took the time to give me a decent review to help me improve.

Naturally the site only allows fanfiction, but I got so inspired by all those lovely people that I've started writing another fanfiction, pretty much ignoring Living new lives because of it. Another illustration, SD had chapters of just over a 1000 words, LNL has chapter of at of somewhere in between 1600-1800 words. My new fanfiction, Torn between two loves, has chapters of over 4000 words. I hope you can understand how that shows how much more motivated I am to write that story.

I know that I should write storied because I want to write them. However, I'm also the type of person who needs a little bit of encouragement to actually get it done. Comments and reviews inspire, but mostly motivate me. They make me happy and confident. I am a crowd pleaser, who can't perform well without a crowd. I need some external motivation, and I'm getting fed up with not getting it here.

I guess I'm also at fault here. I don't have many followers, so perhaps I should start looking for them. I also might not be the most active reviewer for those I do follow here, so am I not guilty of the same crime? Am I a pot calling a kettle black? I'm not sure. Personally I rather think of it that I can't say much about something I don't know much about, and that I am perhaps more of a girl of written art, than of visual art.

In any case, right now I don't feel like continuing on LNL. I got stuck somewhere while writing chapter 5, and I couldn't bring up the will to smash that proverbial wall. I also get stuck on TB2L several times during a chapter, but then I can just force myself to fix it. If I do return to writing LNL then it would probably because somebody offers me to do a colab, but I don't see that happening any time soon.

So there you have it. This is where I'm standing right now. If you are interested in my writing, search for Ocena Strex on fanfiction.net and keep an eye on me. You don't even have to join to leave a review, so when you do, say hello.
