Rather than attempt to explain my situation well, I'm just going to thought-vomit right here:
Ever since I was a kid, I have had a strong passion for fiction, starting with The Phantom Tollbooth that my mom read to me when I was a kid. Most of that early passion was spent on RPG games, however, which quickly led to me wanting to write a story for a video game-- I was about 12, I think. Due to the way I think, the way I process information and approach a subject, I always created the world first. I would create the world, the history, the mechanics, and somewhere in all of that I would be designing the main character. My problem as a kid-- and now, for that matter-- is I would always push design and characteristics in the direction of what I thought would be "cool". That doesn't really work well, especially when you naturally attempt to write actual story around that "cool" factor. Anyway, long story short I tried and failed a lot... I've never progressed, I simply suck at bringing characters to life and making the plot and dialog flow in a natural and, for that matter, interesting fashion. I'm good at identifying these things, and helping others modify and enhance their own projects, but it never works for me.
However. Since I was a kid, I have had a certain 'world' and 'story' that has haunted my imagination. The idea by itself was pretty simple, pretty stupid probably, but there were some details that just always stuck and never changed. I wrote the notes down on some paper back then and left them in my room, and though the concepts never really left my imagination, the overall motivation to make anything of it died out. So then comes my Senior year of high school. Looking for colleges I go to art schools and such but, again, I quickly realize... wow, I suck at doing this by myself. Well, anyway, I soon after learned I was great with computers, so that's my career now. But my story idea... I found the papers from my room a few years back, and ever since I have been slowly but surely expanding on the details and outlining the timeline and plotline. Little bit little, here and there.
