Ok, I’m really annoyed that new users can’t post straight away on now. I worked on it all weekend and now I can’t post the thing …
… and I noticed someone posted a story with a similar idea yesterday. It’ll look like I copied now. -_- No matter that I’d been mulling over how this would work for months.

… but I am really happy that I finished a piece of writing.

That’s a step up from lots of random notes strewn all over my computer!

It’s just 1400 words, but I tried really hard and edited it down a lot. I don’t have a beta, obviously, being new to this, but I think I’m my own worst critic. I’m still far from happy with it, but I guess I can’t expect my first try at really writing for a couple of years to be perfect … time to call it finished and move on to something bigger.

This is my journal almost entirely for musings, fanfiction and occasional fanart to do with my current fandom, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. :D I might occasionally post other stuff, but that's why I'm here.

Hmmm... about me. Well, the most interesting/important thing is I'm working towards becoming a published author. This journal is to give me a chance to practice, and indulge my love of super robot anime and space operas, which would look odd in what I plan to write.

Why Gurren Lagann? To me, it’s more than just a crazy super robot show about drills and manliness. Stripped down to its foundations, it is a classic coming of age story. With the themes contained within this tale - the power of the human heart to overcome adversity, and grief, to conquer fear and doubt, finding yourself, and creating a future for humanity... I think it’s an incredibly beautiful story. It’s just the kind of story we need, with all the worry about climate change, and the economy - a story that reaffirms our goodness and capabilities, reminding us that humans *can* change the world and save themselves.

Gah, I love it so much! And the characters are so much fun to play with.
