first off a link - I thought it was interesting you may too http://whedonesque.com/comments/13271

second off... well I guess its a personal rant.  

I will be 37 in July (7/17 in fact - it's the only reason I always know Jared's birthday - it's 2 days later) 

I have no direction and no goals.  I know I have some talents but have alwasy been either to lazy to perfect them or too shy to show anyone.  There for I never know if I'm getting any better at anything.  

I had teacher after teacher and professor after professor tel me I limit myself - and I do.  Basicly becasue I'm a coward.  I never finish a story becasue if I finish it I may actuly have to do something wiht it - or at least that's why I think I don't finish anything.  

So basicly I just flote through life not knowing what I want to do.  And it's starting to drane me - not to mention that I start things and kinda like them but never want to push it to the point where I can perfect them.  

I need to start working on that.  Why?  Becasue (for once) I have a set of chericters I like.  I actuly like Jordan and Autumn and the silly little dogs they have.  Mind you I have NO idea what to do with them.. since i noramly write fantisay and they are - well not fantastic.  

Don't know what to do - but I am afraid that if I don't do it soon they will slip away.  And that would make me sad...

I actuly got linked there through a Mythic Fiction site run by Terri Windling (Like my fav editor) Both Terri and my fav author Charles deLint are HUGE Buffy fans (and oddly enough Charles had a chericter in one of his YA novils that was a hugely tall, brown haired, slow talking, layed back half dork half cool guy named Jared so...anyway)

I can't imagin filming anything like that - ho wcould you not even try to help (or even if you for soem reason beleved she deserved to die - just not film it) I can't imagin being so cruel.

I have to say I'm rather in love with Jordan and Autumn - and I never really like my chericters (I don't know why but I don't) I have a good 15 pages of them and I'm not in the least bit tired of them - and they've pushed out all the other stroies I was working on like baby cookoos (or cowbirds) so now I have this wierd A/J patch work thing going on...

It's so totaly fear - and I can't decide if I'm more scared of sucess or failer...

my mother says it's gen X disease. That none of us were ever taught to plan anything adn so we just fell into whatever we did...

She also says that as a generation we got married later (if at all) that by the time she was doing weddings for my friends (and classmates) she was doing MORE weddings for 20 year olds...

it's my quarter life crissis... ten years too late.

see it was a failing in the way we were brought up - and (from what I hear) we are by nature more obsessive then other generations...
