I'm getting sick of writing fan fiction. I rarely read fan fiction anymore. I don't know, I'm bored of it. I won't make a career out of writing by writing about MCR fucking each other, and it sure as hell won't get me any brownie points in the music industry. With the way I want my life to go, it seems like a lose-lose situation.
There are some original stories I've been writting, just as fucked up and angsty and dark and weird as my fan fics. I also have been twisting around some of my best (meaning crazy/sexual/shoot me in the face cos this is way too weird stories) into originals. There's one problem with this though:
It's gotten hard enough to get people to read my fan fics. No one on LJ seems to read originals, and I'm an attention whore. I gain my confidence to keep writing by getting reviews from other people-- otherwise, how the hell do I know if my stores are good, how I can improve...
I just don't really know where to go. If there are any decent original communities around here (aka the ones that aren't cluttered with shitty vampire fics, where all the creative stories are otherwise ignored..), or if there are any awesome sites to go to... I don't know. Help would be awesome.
This doesn't mean that I'm completely done with fan fics either. I've promised a lot of people I'd write them stories, and while I probably won't get around to some of them ever, I'd like to try knocking a few off the list before LJ is forgotten about and dies. Cos, uh...I think it's happening. Just saying.
ANNNNYWAY. If you sat through my rant, thank you. If you have any advice/linkage for me, thank you even more. You will recieve invisible internet brownies. If you totally disregard this entire blog because I'm a fucking retard, you can go play in traffic.
Thank you, and goodnight.
