Oh I think you're quite right about that. It reminds me of that phrase, I dunno if you've heard of it: "It's better to be happy than to be right" or maybe it started out as a question as: "Is it better to be right than to be happy?" When it's written out like that, I find myself choosing the latter but when I get into a situation where the other person just doesn't want to compromise, I do whatever I can to be right. I hate it when that happens because so much energy is put into a conflict that only results in one person having the last word and the other feeling hurt in the process. Even if both people finally realise who's "right" and who's actually "wrong", neither one of them feel satisfied. The person who's "wrong" ends up getting hurt and the "right" person ends up feeling guilty. /sorry for rambling.
Hey there! I was gonna respond to your last message but couldn't think of one. Anyhow, yes sometimes I find that being myself brings out the worse only because I'm one of those people who like to start an argument. I'm trying really hard not to do that especially with my sisters and so if I happen to express my opinion with someone I hardly know, I have to make sure I don't get carried away with it... 'cause it could cause some problems. So that's why I either don't share my opinions and keep to myself or pretend that I agree even though I really don't. But I'm generally nice of course. :D
Hello! Read your post just a moment ago about what you're really like when you're not shy. I like the way you describe your opposing personality traits as A and B. Sometimes when you're around people who can make you feel more like yourself, you can bring out A and B traits into the picture, which can bring out the worst in me. Anyway, that's just a thought. Later!
Yeah, I know what you mean by titles. I've been told that I'm good at writing, so I'd like to try my hand at writing. I've already been creating stories, so it'd be nice for me to see them out in written form instead of my head.
I wonder what else is different between us? Would like to stick around and find out?
I suppose that's where our differences lie. I love learning and I tend to have a habit of drawing things out::p:. I say in a couple of sentences what could be said in one sentence or even a few words (like right now). Well, differences are what make the world interesting, I suppose. So, what made you want to write? Was it an innate hobby from the start or did you pick it up in life?
I'd just like to make a series out of my stories. I'd like for them to be more than five books long with 300-450 pages, for right now. However, I'm not confident in my writing and I'm kind of nervous about sending them to someone. I'm scared that people won't like it and that it will receive negative reviews from everyone that reads it. I'm taking a Creative Writing class so I can get more experience with writing and perhaps learn some new techniques and receive some creative criticism for my writing. I'm also reading a lot to see how other writers write and see if there are any techniques or concepts about writing I can pick up.
Don't worry, writing isn't a hassle to me:). It's something that I enjoy doing. It gets hard at times, I admit, but things would be uninteresting if they were easy, don't you think?
I think I see. I'm sorry, I'm new to this whole writing thing. I'm unable to (at the moment) see things in other than black and blue. I'm aware of the gray area, I just can't see it. Maybe you could help me learn (although I get the feeling that the best way I'm going to learn about writing and how to write is going to be through experiences). I'd like to try writing novels one day, but I can't make them as long as I want them to be. Do you think it would help if I wrote my ideas down and built on them from there?
Thank you for that, that cheered me up a bit:). I had the material, but I just kept missing work. Maybe that's where my disappointment comes from. I'm usually punctual, but not this time. Well, there's no point in worrying about stuff I can't change, right? So, what made you want to talk with me?
Hmm? There's no need for the sir really::p:. You can call me by my username or some pet name of it if you wish, whatever you want to (within reasonable standards of course). To answer your question though, I'm doing fine. A bit disappointed in myself, but fine. Of course, reading did lift my spirits a bit:). How are you?
