hello hello my fellow maladaptive daydreamers
i have found this app called Wassi and it’s..it’s amazing. it’s originally meant to be used for writers but it works so well and has so many categories- i use it to save all my paras, paracosms, and more! it’s free as well! and i’m pretty sure there’s no limit to how much you can save. i highly suggest you check it out as it’s helped me so much with remembering my paracosms and paras as i have the memory of a goldfish, despite the fact i talk to them for 7+ hours a day their appearance can occasionally slip out of my mind so this helps me a ton!
i think the app might only be on iphone but if it’s not then hey even better! but i really do recommend at least trying it out, i promise you won’t regret it! /gen
So... something I think a lot about is how my MaDD is... well, most of me. I talk about stuff that happened in my paracosm and not irl, I get more excited finding an identity for my paras than I got when I found my own (even if I was very happy, it's just that seeing a certain Xenogender and going "OMG THIS FITS X PERFECTLY" is a very loud and happy feeling), and... in a way, I feel like I'm empty and just a shell to hold my paracosm inside.
People will really say that it's just "vivid imagination" and meanwhile I'm here feeling like absolute shit because my whole sense of self got taken away with my MaDD
Daydream about a villain joining the good guys™️ but no one believes his true intentions are pure.
I got my sister’s room for a night and I am pulling an all-nighter today!
I have so much to study.I have decided to do Physics and Geometry for now.If it goes on till 3:00 am I might stay up and make it to 4:30.
I’ll take break to daydream and watch random stuff on youtube and restart for the NEW DAY!
I just created this character in my head and they are so cute and perfect and i want to date them, but I can’t cause i made them up and I can’t even read fanfiction about like I usually do with my fictional crushes CAUSE I MADE THEM UP!
AND NOW I’M SAD!
and yes, I know I can try write my own fanfiction or some shit but that’s not it, ugh I hate this feeling
Anyway, if someone needs me, I’ll be writing their profile bio
I swear it’s like every other week my brain decides to fixate on a DIFFERENT paracosm
me, back from the job: finally I can rest
madd: no u don't
I just wrote a draft which gives details about one of my paras and AHDFGFGDHJK
Should I write it down?Its really confusing though!!!!!
The fact that I play all the characters which don’t exist ahhh!!
I am currently meeting my classmates on a regular basis.More like looking at them at a regular basis.
They call me by my name and make me realize WHO I AM.
This is too much for my brain ya’ll!
I get an identity and existential crisis.
oh I never said this but I used to be @/memyselfandmadd I just started a new account lol
Daydream about a world where soulmates are unable to physically harm each other. In the middle of a battle, one of the enemy’s knives harmlessly glances off you.
How to begin writing your paracosm
Things I recommend having:
Get a bright notebook to fill or use google docs or any type of word document. (If you have colorful notebooks maybe switch it up and grab a black one, just make sure your notebook sticks out from everything in your bag. I think its easier to write stuff down psychical on paper but if you don’t I will have a link on the bottom to a free website where you can put everything down.)
Have extra paper around (I find myself using extra paper to write dialogue, animals, or close up bits of map areas in areas that I couldn’t fit it in. I taped them into the book so it would be a little bulky.)
Sticky notes (little notes! Like topics I want to write about but I am currently not ready to write down and still thinking about. Very helpful)
Highlighters (highlighting the topics that you are writing or for dialogue it makes it easier.)
Page markers (easier locate topics your working on)
Last thing I recommend doing is making a section in the back of your notebook to make Canon notes. Just having a section to write the little notes down and go more into detail about them, and things on your Paras.
So we are gonna start off very easy, kinda think of this as a rough draft. It doesn’t have to very detailed so write it in your notebook or on a separate piece of paper if you like. Now I do have to say this is for the ones with fantasy paracosm. We’ll be describing your Parame’s home. (which I am gonna write here as a kingdom.)
What is the kingdoms name?
What towns are around it?
What lakes or rivers around?
Now give a short description of your kingdom. For example who many people live there, do they have any sort of powers?, what type of currency they use, and do they have a religion.
Now descriptions of the towns. For example what happens in the towns, and how does the towns grow the kingdom like is it a mining town or a logging town along those lines.
If your lakes or rivers have a history and key role in your kingdom go on a write them down.
And just keeping doing with that and write down the brief description of anything else that is in the kingdom that I didn’t mention. Like, if you do, the types of gods that live their and if you wanna spice it up you can even take a wack and write down the origin story of how your island came to be!
Non fantasy paracosm, see my probably is that before I started my fantasy paracosm I did have a non fantasy paracosm but thinking back on it I think if I still daydreamed about those that writing down just the dialogue would be the best way to go.
Before I end this I just want to add a few things
that if you don’t want to write it down on paper there’s a free website call World Anvil (https://www.worldanvil.com/) where you can put your fantasy world down they do have video tutorials to show you how to use their system.
If you are looking for inspiration to write your fantasy world down I do suggest the world anvil podcast they do more of a professional world building approach and The artifexian podcast which I find more entertaining and fun to listen too. You can also find Artifexian on YouTube and reddit they are really cool.
Finally if you guys want an visual of what I describe above I would gladly show you guys how I wrote my paracosm down with the same instructions.
I have deleted spotify account for 3 days now.
Do I plan on taking it again?
not till I gain some control over my musical triggers!
Also I am just not having the best daydreams okay?
When you find a song you really like and incorporate it into one of your daydreams
You are taking a Math test and are behind.Like its just 10 mins and you get the urge and here we go again!
I am some popular rockstar person who attended Met Gala at 14 and is being asked about her experience there lol
Then my teacher shouts 5 minutes left.and then everyone in the class sighs loudly and i get back into the present.
I had to not daydream till I left the school.
Then I had the best conversation with my guy best friend while walking back home! (ofc imaginary i do have chances of having one irl but I’m just too lazy to do that)
another night where i lay in bed and daydream about my nonexistent girlfriend
