What have I gotten myself into?

To be honest, it's my medication. In order for my delusions to be kept in check, my creativity has to be blunted. It sucks majorly, but that's the way it has to be. I haven't given up on my fic, not by a long shot. I just thought it would be prudent to let you know not to expect frequent updates.

Yesterday though, my mom made a suggestion that I really liked. My sister has a lot of story ideas(both fanfiction and original). The ideas are really good, but she lacks the linguistic know-how to make the final product really good(she's two years behind linguistically and no one tried to help her learn to read in elementary school). She could potentially make a career off her original stories, as she plans to market them as manga for LDS kids. All she needs is a beta reader.

That's where I come in. While my creativity may be blunted, my knowledge spelling, grammar, and storytelling techniques is not. Mom suggested that while my sis works on her graphic design schoolwork(she's taking the course over the internet), I could help polish her stories. It would give me something to do, and I'd be helping both of us get on the road to a steady income.

I am behind this 100%. We can start with her fanfics and then go from there. As long as I remind her that spelling corrections does not mean that her fanfic is bad.

In case you are curious, she does not have a LJ, but she is on fanfiction.net with the penname Ember Neutron. She's only got one story out and it hasn't been beta'd by me, so it's very rough. But her story ideas are just plain awesome. Most are crossovers. I guess being a sucker for crossovers runs in the family.

Speaking of family, my cousin from the Orlando, FL area went into the LDS Missionary Training Center on the 1st of this month. He and his parents came out a few days early to spend time with us. He'll be serving in Salt Lake City, which is a huge load off of his parents minds. If anything happens to him, we'll be about an hour away.

So that's what's been happening recently. I can't wait to get started on my official beta-ing duties.

What, you may ask, will I never do again? Do something that warrants my computer being taken away from me; in this case, not finish my online driver's ed course on time. Yeah, I'm 21 and all, but as long as I live in Mom and Dad's house, I follow Mom and Dad's rules.

So yeah, the 2 weeks without my laptop was rather unfun, but it wasen't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It did get me out of the house more. And Mom says I was more pleasant to be around. Plus I got the creative initiative to revamp my fanfic from the beginning. Even figured out a little system to getting it up here that should help me polish it. Now if only I could get my creativity flowing again.

The title of this entry is Irish for "internet journal." At least it would be if I could type in the accents on the letters. But I think I got the point across that I'm Irish. And Scottish. And English. And there's definitely a Cherokee or two in there somewhere.

Fanfic is hard to write. For me, anyways. I can plan it all in my head wonderfully, but putting it on paper is a real struggle for me. It might be my medication interfering with my creativity. Then again, even when I wasn't taking meds I had trouble getting my ideas out.

Have I ever mentioned that I would love to learn as many languages as possible? Well, I have now. Japanese, Irish, Quenya, Na'vi, Swahili, Mandarin, just about every language out there. Except Klingon. As much as I am a Star Trek fan, Klingon is not at all euphonic to me.

Yeah, this entry is rather random. But the subtitle of this journal is "Random musings and ramblings," so what did you expect?

Man, I really need to get stuff going in my life. I've been trying to write this fanfic I've had in mind, but for some reason, I never get around to it. The first few chaps are on paper, but I've never been able to get past that.

Maybe I'm scared. Scared that people won't like it. Scared that I'll never get it finished. And just plain scared of the unknown. Well, no longer. I'm gonna start posting my fanfiction here. I'm going to throw caution to the wind and revel in my creativity. I'm going to write to my hearts content. And if there are buttheads that find my fic stupid, then so be it.
