Re: Voting: Best FanFiction [February 2014]
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?

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.
