BEGINING:
Sometimes I look at the world and say, "Wow..."
That's the moment I realize how bad we've gotten, how terrible we've become, how much DESTRUCTION we leave in our paths. When there is constantly rapes and thefts and murders and suicides, all flooding the news channels. Then there's that little segment on the news about the puppies that were rescued last week. Aw! Aaaaaaand, back to the shootings from last night. Wow...
CHAPTER ONE:
Then you start to think. "This place is terrible! This is horrible! ...we did this." But then you think, 'Hey, what if everyone just did ________ and was nice to other people and we all _______ and no one would have to suffer!' And you get all excited, thinking it's possible and you could totally do this! Remember that magazine you were reading? Yeah, the one with all those articles a teens who did good in their community; if half of all teens did stuff like that, you think, this place would brighten up, big time! ^_^
CHAPTER TWO: And then you think, 'Let's do this!' and you're all set and ready. And no one listens. 'Well,' you always think, 'I can always ask ______ to help me!' Aaaaand... turns out they won't/can't help either.
CONCLUSION: Only if half of EVERYONE in the world could turn around, then we could fix this, you think. It seems so impossible again. 'Why did I even try,' you mumble, wondering why you even thought it could work. -_-
EPILOUGE:
You're watching the news again, trying to ignore all the dumb, mean things people do. Blah blah blah, killings, blah blah blah hurt, blah blah blah, nothing-is-good-any-more, etc. =_='
The next segment is about a kind-hearted person who donated a kidney, which ultimately saved a life; literally. O.O
And you think, 'I can still do this,' with a ray of hope. The sun shines a little brighter next morning. (:
(Eh, feeling under-da-weather and was hoping this would make me feel better; it did.) (:

No.
NOT ACCEPTABLE.
At least I have dA...

To be honest I consider myself gone for good, but when I'm bored I do enjoy creeping.
Occasionally one might see me bickering on WB or posting random things (on WB) but I doubt that there will be any more writing/poetry/VM of any kind.
I regret that the chances of me "finishing" VM are very slim, but at the same time, I DID finish it... technically. Maybe if I get horribly sick and have to spend a lot of time in a hospital bed, I will finish it.
Why am I leaving? Well, to be honest, I feel caged by KidPub. Not by the writing, nor its members--simply the air that KidPub has adapted. Almost exclusively Christian beliefs are beginning to wear me down, especially when I've joined the Gay Straight Alliance this year (no offense to anyone--I do support God to an extent) and my views on the world are becoming clearer as I adjust to an IB (or, Pre-IB, at least) mindset. I have more on this but I really don't think that anyone really needs to hear. :/
So although I don't consider my "departure" from KidPub to be on the best of terms, don't get me wrong, I do enjoy KidPub and I do love its members. :)

Was Colorado the only state that heard about Jessica? It's just....horrible. I can't even express it in words.

The real God doesn't care if you're straight or gay. The Bible, no offense to peeps, is a bunch of baloney. It is written by man. Not God.

PLEASE COME BACK THO. ;_;

I feel like I should be offended, being an American who severely dislikes the stereotypes made so carelessly about her country... but I'm not really.
Maybe there should just be a GPA cut-off. Anyone with a 3.8 or higher GPA can enter the society. Then you're not being... nationalist? Can you even use that word in that sense?

The problem with KidPub:
 
I realized something today, after thinking about why so many members are leaving, and why KidPub’s status has been going down.

Simply put, this is a writing website. Its purpose is for young writers to hone their skill though the praise and constructive criticism of other members. That's it. Cut and dry.

This site is NOT like other social networking sites. This isn’t Facebook—when you join, you don’t just join to talk to friends or meet new people or waste time. This isn’t Twitter—saying random things to get attention is not the purpose of this site. Why do people clog? They want attention, be it negative or positive. More and more people are coming on here using text talk and are totally unable to take CC, or give it. All these people aren't real writers. They like to write, but they like attention better.

I joined KidPub because I wanted to grow as a writer. I wasn’t looking for sympathy or craving attention or wanting to make new friends. I wanted CC. I wanted to know if I was a decent writer or not. I honestly didn’t expect any more than a few people to pay attention to my book. I am eternally grateful for all the people who have commented on my story. It is very near and dear to my heart, and so are all of my readers. And that brings me to my next topic.

Once upon a time, everyone on here had what dragonwriter called a “soul story.” People were totally committed to one or two of these “soul stories,” and so were their followers. Why aren’t people commenting nowadays, besides not having enough time? Because, there are less and less stories that get finished. Why read a story if you never get to the climax, or the resolution of the plot? More and more stories just fade into an oblivion because their writers don’t have time to write it, don’t like the story anymore, came up with a better idea, or are just...fickle.

And don’t even get me started on fanfics. Yes, they’re fun to write. But, in my opinion, they should be viewed as strictly side-projects, writing warmups, and simple tributes to show your favor for published story/movie/show. When they dominate the NS page, that's a sign that no one's really trying to be original. If you want to just write fanfics, then join a fanfic site. Being a true writer means writing about your own ideas.

And then there are the people who can't keep their opinions to themselves. This is a writing website, NOT a debate club. We're not on here to judge people. We're not on here to prove a point. But for some people to be able to say whatever they want just because they know how to throw their weight around and no one wants to argue with them is just plain wrong.

I love this site. I'm glad I found it. I love my readers. I love my characters. But sometimes...things are just ridiculous on here and it makes me want to scream.
