I did this for two reasons: 1, I don't actually have many vices left, so it's hard to think of what to give up. 2. I wanted to assure myself that I would actually start doing it again once Lent is over.
I'm someone who gave up meat (2006), cussing (2008), and candy (2013) for Lent and have yet to pick them back up. And as someone who is taking online classes this semester, choosing something lofty like giving up the internet wouldn't have been a good idea for many reasons.
Thus, no Fanfic reading for me until Easter.
But I give myself something to focus on as I go without each year by adding something into my life as I take something away. If only to ease off on the shock of quitting something cold turkey.
This year as I go without reading Fanfics, I have decided to write a new one.
It's taken me a week to figure out what I wanted to write, but I woke up this morning with an idea based on one of the movies that I saw yesterday. I didn't like one of the plot twists, so I tried to think about what would have happened if that particular twist hadn't happened and how that would have affected the story as a whole.
Ergo, fanfic idea.
And to save myself from temptation, I will start writing now and then upload the finished product onto fanfiction.net after Lent is over.
Now it's time to get over this prolonged bout of Writer's Block and start writing!
Until next time...
