/you don't have to read this, it's not for you

nothing pains me more than some doofus in the forum asking the community what they should write.  no one cares.

what we should write is what we want and not have to rationalize it.  or lie about it.  which is what i've done.

I did break up Angie and Nina a while back.  i thought that writing about the everyday people in the neighborhood would help me feel more well-rounded and not like i'm writing the same shit all the time.  while that helped for a little bit, but the truth is, I want to only write about Nina.  boring neighbors are boring, no matter what is going on in the plot or the character development.  while she does bore some folks around here, she doesn't bore me.

they're not fun to write anymore.  i'm missing the fun. 

Nina was FUN.  she was nothing but trouble.  Even Angie was fun in her own way but that's another story..

i spent some time outside my comfort zone, wrote a lot of stuff that i'm proud of, tried some new things, played with some ideas I hadn't dealt with before.  being outside the comfort zone is crucial every once in a while.  but i've been out for a long time and i want to go back in. 

will i post Nina stories here?  don't know yet and it doesn't matter.  i've got two novel ideas in mind (not including her.. well, maybe one of them), don't know if i will do something with them this year or not.  i'm sure i'll have them plotted out for when i'm ready, but a series of Nina novellas/short collections is really speaking to me right now.  denying myself what i want to write is hurting me, i can tell.  there's so much material with her that i haven't even tapped into yet, even after two novels and countless shorts.

what do we want to write?  what we want to read.  what do we not want to write?  anything that is a grind to get through, either writing or reading.  it's easy to tell.
