I like writing stories

Well, they’re more like play scripts because they mostly consist of dialogue and character actions. ^^; Although I’m not going to share any of them publicly, I find myself thinking back about how I did let some friends read my stories before. It was nerve-wracking waiting for a reply and their opinions since I’m terribly self-conscious about any creative works I make. But the waiting was worth it because some of them gave me feedback that allowed me re-evaluate various aspects such as plot, character motivations, logic, etc. in ways that I never would have considered. I actually kind of miss those kinds of critiques so now I’m wondering if I should let someone read a current story just to get some ideas of where it should be going or how some things could be changed.

However, one of the biggest problems of my writing style is that, not only is it poor, but it’s incredibly disjointed and contains many notes and points that only *I* understand. I’d imagine they’d makes things rather difficult to follow. ^^ On top of this is the fact that I use WikidPad to help me organize ideas so I have things separated into sections like “Main Characters”, “Main Story”, “Ideas”, and even something like “Secrets” so in order to even begin to comprehend one section, the reader may have to refer to another one. But there’s the also the danger of learning too much ahead of time too, I suppose. ^^ Those earlier stories that I’ve let others look at weren’t divided all over the place and were actually written in proper story format though.

Now that I think about it, I did write a summary of the general plot idea and character information for a friend along with sending her the mess that was the story itself. ^^; I suppose I could do that should I decide to share one again.

Anyway, this was something I just wanted to get off my chest. ^^
