Tree Dreaming

Blerh blerh blerh

I've been doing pretty shitty in the LJI polls recently. I feel like in the beginning, I was doing pretty well, having good ideas and writing fairly clean stuff, and now my entries all suck giant, hairy dicks. I'm in this cycle where I'm convinced nobody left in the competition thinks I'm a good writer (which is obviously not true since SOME people still vote for me), and I'm not doing anything to prove them otherwise.

Oh well. I'll get over it. I'm sure it also has to do with the fact that I haven't been reading and commenting recently, despite my good intentions. Maybe I should set a smaller goal, rather than trying to read 20 entries a day, just read 5, and see how I feel after that. As it stands, I get overwhelmed with the amount of entries and give up, because I've got myself convinced that I HAVE to read everyone's.

Anyway, it's not like this never happens with LJI, Exhibit A is the longest I've EVER lasted in an LJI competition, but I usually get myself out by forgetting to write or taking all my byes or giving up. I think I officially got voted off in Exhibit B.

Well, I don't really have anything constructive to say, just venting a little. I'll get back on the horse and keep on trucking and all that jazz.
