As I've picked up writing my Series Finale again for my almost 4 years old story, I'm starting to believe that perhaps I might have dragged what originally was suppose to be a three chapter long joke, to something far more ambitious and perhaps out of my own desire. I don't know what the future will bring, but as far as my writing in general at the Base might go, I might be looking at a... Silent retreat sometime during this year...

    As of now, I got the Series Finale and one more One-Shot to do, and that might be it. If I was really serious about my writing, I would perhaps have done my story in half a year's time rather than spending four years on it, which really is quite long. Due to this, I'm starting to think that the idea I've had for an original work with 60 + chapters, will simply take too much time and effort to pull off (especially knowing how long each of my chapters are, that the idea and the first chapter of it has been shelved since 2011, and knowing how NB has changed over the years).

    I'm not saying that I'm going to "retire" as a writer (ironically, this thought started to come to me as I brought up that I would soon retire from this contest as well), but that it might soon be time to try for real or spend my resources elsewhere.

    So, what about you guys? Are your writing spirit still strong, or are you writing as a mean to settle your thoughts?
    Both, I guess. I wanna finish my two stories, but I also wanna work on the stories I plan in publishing one day.

    I still keep ideas flowing in my brain, but I've sort of converted my writing to editing Youtube videos. I'm using a different format creatively. I just love storytelling. If I have a really good writing idea for a fanfic, I'll post it. I only write it for me, which is why I haven't written anything just to enter the contest. I've thought about it to just adding to the fray and filling up a spot, but I prefer it to come naturally. My ideal job would probably to me a teacher/therapist/journalist and a writer on the side. It'd be great and is coming to fruition every day. It's the passion and the passion hasn't changed for me. I view NB writing different. I feel like disconnected from the writing community, but that's just me not being in it a lot and not loving the content I do read sometimes, which I barely do, so again, it's just me, you know?

    Anyways, I can see your point, which brings me to my ideal job again. I do love writing, but it's a perfect side outlet for me. Not time limit, no nothing. I just go with the feeling when it hits. It works for me. You may be different and want it full time, which is great. My advice is, don't force yourself unless it comes naturally. Take it lightly, even though it's serious work, it's supposed to be fun. Everything should be fun and not stressful, especially writing.

    Not really sure what I said will help you, but bottom line, my passion is still strong. I love it. I'm good. Not extremely active and writing constantly, but it doesn't lessen my passion. I just do it differently.

    I write because I love it. I don't write for anyone except myself, and it will always stay like that. The way I see it, if I'm writing for someone else, the passion isn't there anymore. I never want that passion to fade away, after I've been writing since middle school. I end up liking writing more by the end of every year.

    Well being, probably, the less experienced, I write primarily to release clustered up imagination. I'm in 10th grade now and at my school we don't typically get a time to actually write how we feel so a lot of the things I want to say never get said unless I write it. I also enjoy writing for both myself and others since I'm essentially focusing on music but writing is similar so when I hear people say, "Hey, this is a really cool story" it really puts a smile on my face. But, for myself, I mostly do it to learn from myself since it's had to review your own writing so when I hear that there was something I did incorrectly my first impression is, "Well... can't do that again" . Other than that, the simplest way to put it is that its a great experience to write.

    * Writes to conclude your story.
    * Writes to settle your thoughts.
    * Writes to win awards... Got it =P

    I suppose you have some of the same points as me then.

    I see, well that's one way to look at it I suppose. Personally as far as thoughts on publishing something goes, I'm way too indecisive when it comes to making up my mind on what I want to do with my life, haha.

    Well if you can use your writing creatively in more ways than just writing itself, then that's a good thing I suppose. It's not always about becoming an author, but about finding a way in which your writing abilities get used in the right way. Good points Jack.

    I see your points, and I suppose I agree. What I meant by writing for your readers though is the idea of a reader wanting the continuation of your story to such a degree that you get inspired to continue, you get the urge to finish that said story. In a way, you could say that you are still writing for yourself, but the way I see it, if the readers want you to continue, you are also writing for them in a way.

    The way you make it sound kind of reminds me of myself when I began writing, also in 10th grade and also because you had to write things you didn't want to in school, haha.

    Well because everyone else answered you I guess I will too. I write for myself. I enjoy writing plus its a way to get the stories I come up with my head out. If you like my writing, I thank you, thanks for all the support, however T the same time if you don't well then you don't. Heck I don't like my own writing at times. Lately my writing spirt has been at an all time low....no it's not writers block I know what I want to write I I just can't you know? I try I get nothing. I'm just to motivated to do it anymore.

    I know that feeling all too well bro, it's like there's way too much happening for us in life to write what we want. I feel like I just want to jump in a time capsule and just freeze time for one week straight. No hunger, no getting tired, nothing else going on... Just me and my writing. That way I would at least got something done, haha =P

    The Lord is my light and my
    salvation; whom shall I fear?
    the Lord is the strength of my
