    my trumpet teacher actually gave me some pretty interesting advice as far as back-up plans go

    he said that he was the first person in over 50 years to graduate from his conservatory with a degree in music performance instead of music education (they're almost identical in a lot of places)

    he said that if you give yourself a backup plan or a back door you're more inclined to not go all-in and fully invest yourself in your primary goal and that if you make it either sink or swim you're going to try way harder to swim

    i'm apalled that it wasn't overhauled into an AD thread like two posts in

    considering the first response was about it and it's what everyone thinks of seeing the title

    even though it should be huge mistake and not terrible mistake

    Because I've only seen like half of one episode anyway.

    I took a six hour exam the other day where I realized 3 hours into it that I had misread the question.

    Luckily, that's pretty much where I'm at now, so, y'know, at least I'll prepared.

    Also: For a while in highschool, after I realized I couldn't draw, I contemplated just writing instead. That continued for a long while until I started reading comics again, and realized that it was possible, if implausible, to actually work as a writer for comics without having any drawing ability.

    I fucking love writing scripts, and have come to actually really dislike writing prose. I love reading it, but when I'm actually trying to create, it feel like an unnecessary barrier between me and the story I'm trying to tell.

    For some reason lately I have been wanting to start a blog
    but I don't know why

    generally I have nothing but scorn for the typical blog and I certainly don't have anything special to offer

    In fact I just found the blog I had in high school for a while and there are like 7 entries, all spaced weeks or even months apart; I just never bothered

    it's weird

    the voice i found in high school for prose (aka essays about literature) is altogether too witty/self-impressed to work in any situation where the teacher does not know what i'm like in real life/verbal mannerisms

    lucky for me i had cool english teachers straight through high school but that shit could have ended real fast

    The whole "voice" thing has always been a problem for me. Whenever I'm writing I find I have to watch myself or I'll vacillate wildly between ultra-casual speech-pattern writing and extremely strict, overly-fancy shit that I managed to pick up reading terrible fantasy novels as a kid.

    What I really like about comics, though, is the play between the writer and the artist - I'm getting something illustrated now, and there is nothing quite as satisfying as seeing my ideas down on a page. Having that extra person in the process not only has the chance to improve your own work, but it slightly removes you from the finished product, which makes seeing it finished for the first time somewhat - and I hate to use the phrase, but there y'go - magical.

    My mother taught me to speak correctly, so I have no problem writing casually in an academically appropriate style unless I'm tired. When I'm tired I forget words and everything falls apart without precise diction.

    It may be cliche, but one of my biggest mistakes was not confessing my feelings to a girl before she left for Hong Kong. After 3 years she's come back and we haven't spoken once. I think she forgot about me. :|

    Not really a whole lot of pleasure in it.

    I haven't had an earth shattering orgasm in a while.

    That's a pretty lame excuse, unless you grew up somewhere that doesn't have educational television and proper books.

    The whole seeing your work as a completed whole for the first time being magical thing is seriously awesome
    i recorded an EP over the summer with my band and due to it being done by a guy who knew things about stuff we obviously weren't here for the post production, mixing and mastering
    there's nothing quite like hearing your own shit fully realized out of the blue like that
    sometimes i'll start writing something really late at night and then go to bed and like three days later i'll stumble across it and i won't remember it and it'll be sick

    If I were Chico and I knew where Chico's cock had been, I would be in no way shape or form excited to put the member in my mouth.

    Also if I were chico I would have to lose weight so I could see my feet let alone find my genitals in the growing, cascading mounds of jellyflesh.

    It wasn't an excuse, just an aside - I actually consider myself a fairly decent communicator. I'm just far better at writing dialogue and narration than I am at straight-up prose, because I enjoy using off-beat colloquialisms and having a clear concept of the character's voice and personality. Writing "dry" as it were, just isn't my strongest suit.
