Why it takes a long long time.

  I never think it's good enough. 

 That's the moral of this story, if that's what you're here for.. Well, that means you don't have to read the rest of this, lucky you. 

 The thing is, I've been revising the same story (a short story at that) for three months. No, it's not going for a contest in some great magazine where I could win thousands of dollars.. It's a story for my own satisfaction. It's a story so I can show a dynamic to someone and see if it really works from an objective point of view. I keep thinking of ways to make it better, and then a few days later it doesn't look so good to me. 

 I wouldn't be surprised if I was working on this one short until I'm eighty. ugh.. My other work is being pushed back for this one persistent short. And now.. After another revision, I've started rewriting the thing for a whole new sequence and changing the setting.. Meaning it will take longer to get to the other ideas.. 

 I've been storing up good ideas for half a year that I haven't been getting around too.. To take a break from writing my novel, I started polishing these story ideas... Now I'm even behind on my novel writing.. 

 No wonder I don't post on figment.

Writer's Block: The more you know

Should websites like Wikileaks be defended for sharing confidential corporate and government information with the public, and why?

 Yes, they should be defended. This is our country, and the government is ours as well. We have a right as citizens to know what our government is doing so we can make more meaningful decisions based off of what we've learned. 

 The government is not privately owned, and each American has a right to information should they choose to pursue it. 

 There are problems with security and radicals associated with that freedom, but these problems can be easily solved by removing specific names of people who would otherwise be put in danger (such as informants.) Wikileaks has shown the desire to protect these people (from the statements I've heard), and is willing to take out the names of those who would be harmed from the information becoming public. 

 So, really... Wikileaks is doing what we need it to. No sordid sexual scandal can take away the fact that it is information the American public should have the opportunity to see.

Perhaps I should..

 I'm not new to livejournal, actually. I used to have an account here before, but.. Things have definitely changed since then, and it seemed like high time for a new one. Perhaps I'm just a dull person, or perhaps I just don't very much like reality.. But the main point is that livejournal is a good escape for me, and I like to keep things that way. 

 In essence, I'm here to experience the thrill of attempted socialization. Considering that my gall is far outweighed by fear of rejection, it is not likely to succeed. 

I'm always one to try, though ^___^. 

Aside from a reach to find others to talk to, I would perhaps post (when and if I can find something to talk about that is ;; ..) 

Perhaps I am just dull ;; . Either way, I'm here again.
