Can't sleep...

Actual Entry
Since I can't fall asleep, I figured I would at least update to prove that I am indeed still alive. So, NaNoWriMo, how did I do? I won. Hooray, I beat the curse with nothing breaking. And this year, much like my first year, I actually sat down and wrote a story I wanted to tell with the "Traveler" series (renamed to something else mind you.) So, when can you see it posted? Well, I have a few issues with it. Yes, it was nice to finally have pushed the story far ahead to where the momentum (has) been running on it. But at the same time, I feel iffy on it. The story ends at a point to where I didn't really know what would happen. The beginning feels long and dry with the story only picking up pace at the ~30k mark. Then there doesn't feel like there is any substance to it.

Now no, it wasn't a waste of time. If anything, I have proven a few concepts that might (and probably won't) work in the end. But the story itself feels iffy and I wonder if I should try it again in a different light. My goal of telling the story of a person taking their first steps as an independent in their life feels questionable and I feel I can do a better job. The biggest issue I've seen with the NaNo run was that the rear story arc took too much of the spotlight, completely throwing out what I intended to write about. And I have a feeling that no matter how I shake it, the setting won't really allow for a different kind of story. So my plan is to take a few steps back and see if I can tell the story in a different manner or at least come back with a stronger battle plan.

You said that you needed a dratini and a chespin?  I have a Bulletproof Chestnaught and a 4 IV female Adamant Dratini with Marvel Scale if you want them.  (The dratini should be able to re-learn Extremespeed with a Heart Scale, but no guarantees)
