    Valt the Wonder Deer: Yay or Neigh?

    First things first: still working on the Bastion trilogy. All three stories are outlined, first one's got a rough draft, but needs finetuning. Oneshot ideas are shot down, because they need to be expanded into episode-style plots. I'm going to try and think of something quick to publish, but it's taking me longer than usual, so my apologies for that. :fluttershysad:

    Happy New Year, Everyone.

    More things are being worked on, other things need to be caught up on. Not much change since previous blog post. Probably going to minimise author feedback from now on, for personal and already mentioned reasons.

    Update on pony and spoilers. (Spoiler-free, obviously)

    So, Niko fic is mostly done, I have a rough first draft that's got the stuff in it I wanted, all except the ending and epilogue. It ended up being a little bit too telly and drama-y than I'd have wanted, but hey. It's a fanfic of a Christmas-based franchise, I won't publish it until December at least, I have time to finish up.

    Bit of a nervous wreck at the moment.

    Hardly got any sleep, heart pounding like crazy, don't get me started on the side effects of that.

    It's been a very tiring couple of weeks, job talks here, job talks there, no stop.

    So yeah, Niko fic is experiencing huge delays as a result. Had a beer to try and calm down, did help slow down the heart, doesn't help the head.

    Plans for the Summer, and a Pondering on Fandoms.

    An update to prevent any worrying, and to line up everything scattered throughout previous blogs first.

Bit of a nervous wreck at the moment. · 2:15pm Jul 16th, 2019

Hardly got any sleep, heart pounding like crazy, don't get me started on the side effects of that.

It's been a very tiring couple of weeks, job talks here, job talks there, no stop.

So yeah, Niko fic is experiencing huge delays as a result. Had a beer to try and calm down, did help slow down the heart, doesn't help the head.

It's just the constant contact, is all. I keep thinking I'm messing up, screwing up, making someone's day worse by interacting with them. I can't seem to do even the simplest of things. To make matters worse, I have to go practise driving again, which is another major stress source in and of itself. Got a job now, at least, that's something to look forward to. Hope I don't screw that up royally now. Haven't signed yet, and the whole 'do you want a car' question is enough to drive a wrench into my gears, but it's pretty much set.

Anyway, no progress as of yet. Birthday was kind of a mixed bag, too, but what else is new? I feel like I'm about to lose my mind. Is this what adulting is? I don't know what to do, or think.

How do you guys deal with this sort of difficulty? When you're ovely self-conscious to the point you get sick and tired just from writing up an e-mail message?

Song unrelated, I promise.

Cracker out.

This is what being an adult is like, good for me I should know

I don't know man. I usually just consider myself lucky I have what I do, and try to set small goals. But I'm always empathetic, because 3 bad things in your life is 1000x worse than 2 bad things.

Small goals, yeah. The toughest part is going to be sending the rejection mails. I had five or six people contact me in the span of three days, I still have talks to do now, after I've accepted the job already.

Maybe this is just what being introverted is like.

But small goals is a good one, has worked before. Getting started on the story's becoming the biggest hurdle right now... Niko really doesn't have a lot of fan material to go off of.

Your feelings and reactions to experiences are eerily familiar.

Yes, I'd say it is an introvert thing.
But there are other threads there too.

Lately I have been feeling dread and such from similar tasks. Self-doubt does bad things. Saying it zaps your confidence is too simplistic - you are unable to formulate good courses of action.

Congratulations on the job.
It's true what they say - being a wage earner is a great boost. You receive pay because you have earned it.

All the best mate.

Yup. I'm usually good at planning out things, but when stress builds up or schedules go wonky, I cannot adapt. I'm a strategist, not a tactician.

Thanks. It's a few months of training first (paid), and I've accepted the car, so... guess I'll be driving again soon :twilightoops:

One can only hope. Maybe I should make a wishlist of things to buy as a motivation... still browsing for desktops atm.
