I’m torn between seeing my writing as “wow this sucks beyond belief” and “wow this is the greatest work I’ve done”.
So this is my personal/fandom/whatever-the-heck-I-want-to-post blog. LOTS of Homestuck, and a little bit of other random stuff I like, welp. occasional whiny/pointless text posts, and I abuse my tags with unnecessary commentary. sorry not sorry, you were warned! <3 []

The writing lifestyle
Having a writing lifestyle means
- Waking up with a plot idea based on one of your dreams.
- Rambling about people who don’t exist to anybody who will listen.
- Sneaking some words into your stories when you’re supposed to be doing other work.
- Staring dumbly at the blank word processor.
- Finding time to write where others only find time to sleep.
- Cringing at the OBVIOUS ERRORS in bestselling novels.
- Thinking up epic plots during your commutes to work or school.
- Cringing at the OBVIOUS ERRORS in the stuff you just wrote five minutes ago.
- Repeating a brilliant idea to yourself until you get the chance to write it down.
- Getting massive FEELS from your own work.
- Having a strange mix of love and hate for your characters.
