Write in a god damned word document. It's easier.

Unless you were just speaking figuratively - then just write five hundred words. Or 250 until you have 50,000 or so. It's really not that many.

You sure like those sorts of stories huh.

Jot it down in your writing notepad. It'll come in handy in the future.

Figuratively, yes.

Looking for that topic where people posted what songs go with their stories?

Troy seemed to be a tad commercialised since it was tagging along the 'Swords & Sandals' genre gravy train ever since Gladiator revived popularity in the genre. But it is hard to put down the talented cast, decent characters (Which is hard to do with a large cast and difficult names), great focus on the action and the epic scale of it all. I give it a 7/10 overall.

...But yes, I'm going to write some notes. Was thinking of maybe doing a Shonen thing with focus on the single-duels between the warriors, only that they're able to use powers like elements and fo shizzle.

Yargh, I need some motivation to write. I figure reading and reviewing stories on MR will help, but I don't have much motivation to read stories on MR either much less reviewing. I suppose this is called sloth. Unacceptable for a practitioner of righteous science.

A good thing to do is set a small goal when writing. Something like 200 words. It's an easy goal so you'll have no problem reaching it, but by the time you finished, you'll get your brain juices flowing!

That's probably a good idea. I think I'm so afraid of having to revise all at once and totally rearrange things that I revise while I write which isn't conducive to pressure free writing in the long run.

I also lose motivation. i'm usually seeing the same issues time after time after time...and the worst of it is that that now the red flags are becoming clearer and clearer and people dont seem to point them out anymore. people have become fanfic blind.
Stop playing victim....you know what you did.
