But what to say?

In the next few weeks I plan to make my first writing-specific youtube video. I plan to keep it basic at the start, because there is just SO much to say on the subject.

I think the important thing to remember is not to stress too much. There is no way I could say everything in one video, and I plan to make many more in the future, so I should just relax.

But what if I accidentally leave out some of the most fundamental things? What if I don’t sound smart enough? I need to prove that I know what I’m talking about, dammit!

Judging by what friends and family say about me, that comes across anyway. Sometimes.

I know better, of course. I say so, so many stupid things that I really do have cause to worry.

But I don’t, actually. I do not need to make it perfect. All I need is to give you (or, whoever watches the video) an idea of how I think about and approach writing.  That’s not so hard, really. I can do that.

Of course, I am still going to stress over what to talk about. Even after I post the video, most likely.

Update: New Page, New Stuff…

If I’m not mistaken I mentioned in one of my more recent posts that I was going to create a Featured Story Page. Instead of replacing the beginning of Helen, which still seems to get some views from time to time, I decided to just have both up. And I FINALLY completed the first short story and the page is now UP! Go see it here. If you really can’t stand creepy stories, you might want to wait for the next one.

This story was actually written last year, I think, but I didn’t finish it in time to post it for the summer. It was very important to me to post it either at the beginning or middle of summer, and so I figured I would wait until this year. So while everyone is getting ready to spend the next few months outside, I decided to give them a reason to be AFRAID. Is there not a horror movie about this already? I’m surprised.

On my other blog I talked about something I’ve just started, a youtube channel! I am vlogging now. I’m feeling very self-conscious about it and I’m not sure how this is going to go, but I’m just going to do it anyway. I intend to make plenty of videos about writing and reading, and it’s very possible that you’ll get to know stuff about my writing that I won’t blog about. I also am going to talk about things that are related more to the No-Recipe Life blog, so there’s going to be quite a hodgepodge but hopefully an interesting one nonetheless. I only have one video up so far but I am hoping to make more soon. If you want to check it out, my channel is norecipewriter.

Other than that I still have not managed to do any writing. Life is crazy and I usually feel too tired, and only want to write while I’m at work. I know it’s all just excuses, but the end result is the same as if I actually had legit reasons not to write. Adulthood basically sucks.

BUT at least the new page is available now! My goal is to change the story once a month… if I can. I want to see how it works out with this basic structure and schedule and I’ll change it if I need to.

If you really want more frequent posts, I tend to post more on The No-Recipe Life, so you could head over there if you want. 😦 Sorry to my writing blog, I promise I’m not trying to neglect you.
