I Can Poet TooWhat is with the poetry all around?I Can Poet Too by Le-Kaikai
All the feels and darkened angst bundled up
in fragments escapes my prosaic wound
mind—I feel so left out. It sucks, right? Yup.
So here is my resolve: I shall write one
poem. I shall see what is so sublime.
Such humdrum work it is to guess—no fun,
lest I sit here and make the damn thing rhyme.
But my attention span is rather short.
Only my ready delay of true prose
tempts me to try my hand at such distort
of words to extraneous forms. It blows.
To each their own, I suppose. In my case,
I take thy poetry and coup de grāce.

Lately I've been working on a new fanfiction. However, nowadays my writing style is more...focused, I guess.
A main problem I noticed with my old method of writing (back when I was very active on this site) was that I would come up with a vague story plot, start writing, publish as I wrote, and then get caught in a plot hole that would make me lose all inspiration and motivation for the story.
The end result? I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve never finished a single damn multi-chapter fanfiction. XD
I don’t do that anymore…well, as much. I do think writing down that broken plot is a good way to get it out of me, and then once it’s out it’s easier to work with. But mostly what I’ve started is handwriting all my drafts. I used to type-as-I-write, and I’d get so caught up with editing what I just wrote that I’d never get to the end and I would ultimately accomplish nothing. With handwriting, it is easier for me to keep going, probably because I can’t just erase what I just wrote in pen. Then, when I’m done writing, it’s easier for me to focus on editing what I wrote since I actually finished writing it.
Essentially what I’m trying to say is that I am, like a loser, carrying a journal around with me and handwriting a very ambitious fanfiction. I’m trying to write things I’m not very comfortable writing, like battle scenes and actual developing romance (and insane drama to the point where it pisses me off, self-trollololol). You know, I’m trying to write something that I would want to read…and inspired by the fact that for this particular fandom I’m writing it for, I haven’t found something similar.
After my three stages of editing (1: me going over the completed handwritten draft with a red marker, 2: me sending the edited-handwritten draft to my friend to go over with a different colored marker, 3: me typing it into the computer and editing minor things as they come up), I will start to post it chapter by chapter, even though the whole thing will be complete. Essentially, if it isn’t well received (or simply does not get feedback on this website) then I will take it and try to figure out what is wrong (or try a different website, since I know this site is more for art, even though my beloved fanfiction community thrives here as well).
It is a work in progress, but I am working on it, and I am excited for it, and I do hope you will give it a thought even though it is not a Kingdom Hearts or D. Gray-Man fanfiction.
