Who’s really the villain here? This man deserved SO much better
Djsjfjf I swear I'm not trying to sound like an asshole. 😭😭😭
I realize this comes off sounding incredibly arrogant. And I'm not at all saying that 1K of writing is nothing! Not at all! ANY amount of writing is a feat, no matter the level one is at! (Esp w the Bad Brain days where all I can do are edits & no amount of writing gets done. 🙃)
This is completely a me-specific thing.
In this particular case, I was having a semi-good brain day. By which I mean that I was writing consistently w much less distraction than usual. On these type of days, my writing output is usually at least @ 3K. On particularly Good Brain Days (mixed w a heavy dose of hyperfixation) my output can exceed 10K (or 2-4 chapters for an ongoing story), & this is entirely specific to myself as an author who's been writing for years & has gotten to know their limits well.
Someone who is new at writing stories should not expect to do this. That would be incredibly unfair to expect of oneself & it will only lead to massive disappointment if they find they can't pull thru. & on that same vein, I'd like to state that comparing oneself to others (even if they're at the same or higher level) as a form of shame rather than encouragement is cruel to the self. It is not allowed! I forbid it!
I, w so much practice, am able to do this (the word output, not the shame — that's Not Allowed). I know I can do this. So when I don't, it's something I allow myself to be disappointed over bc I didn't meet a goal I usually do achieve.
God, I still sound like an asshole, don't I. Lmao I'm so sorry.
& I'm feeling validated in this chili's tonight 😌🥰
I’m in the process of finally making an hs sideblog, after being in the fandom since oh, only like 2013
i procrastinate on things
Rules: Post the file names of all the files in your wip folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous the name.
Send me an ask with the title that intrigues you the most and I'll tell you something about it!
Tag as many people as you have wips.
AUGH. Thanks for the tag @dragonidpyrus12! I’ll say straight up Do Not ask me about these I probably will be very tight lipped and/or it’s a very vague idea that has not been fleshed out and it’s more a parking lot for the idea.
Come take a gentle stab
The first leaves that fall
The winding path to water
With the sound of wings
ahjskdf 5 wips so 5 people to tag: @saijspellhart @rabidweezul @jenivi7 @jamiehascateyes @ink-flavored

Rule: Tag people you want to get to know better
Last Song: Oceans - The Blue Stones
Last Movie: In a theatre was Ford vs Ferrari. Streaming was The Mummy (hello comfort film!)
Currently Watching: it takes me forever to watch anything but I’m working through a cdrama called the Guardians, Ginny & Georgia, and season 2 of The Terror.
Currently reading: Moon of the Crusted Snow by Waubgeshig Rice. It’s a slow burn dystopian thriller about a remote northern Anishinaabe community that suddenly goes dark. I’m seriously loving it.

Tagged by: @alectoperdita! Thanks bud, I love these sorts of things!!
Rules: List the first lines of your last 20 stories (if you have less than 20, just list them all!). See if there are any patterns. Choose your favorite opening line.
1. A Different Way
His book bag hit the floor before he did.
2. Catalysts for Kindling
A package? For me?
3. Isolated System
Bzt bzt bzt
4. Deck the Dates (with cups of coffee)
Yugi was certainly not a morning person.
5. Chic Thrills
Yugi had absolutely no idea what he was doing here, or even why he had even agreed to this to start with.
Parties are one of the most deplorable things on this planet.
7. Naughty Spiced Latte
Bakura did not even know why he had signed up for this stupid app.
8. You want me to do what?
“You've got to be kidding me, you want me to do what?"
9. Counting the Days
If anyone were to ask how it all started, no one could say with certainty.
10. The Perfect Plan
It has to be perfect.
A knife was held in hand, gleaming metal catching glimmers of streetlight.
12. Across the Coals
Leather boots clicked against the throne room floor with every step, announcing his arrival.
His hand caught against the belt, cool metal unclasped with feverish fingers.
Despite the passing weeks, the consequences of Kaiba’s insatiable ambition were still ever present.
Snowflakes drifted down gently from the night sky, falling upon the general populace that were braving the snow-covered streets.
With a smile, Yuugi exchanged his coin for the single scoop of mint chocolate ice cream.
17. The Question
One of the things Atem liked about working in the Department of Unexplained Cases was that there was always something to do.
18. The Pine Bluff Duality
A thick file snapped shut, the papers within threatening to burst under the pressure of the large hand placed firmly atop the manila folder.
Although Yugi loved summertime, the early fall breeze drifting in through his window was a welcome relief.
The phone went dead, harsh words yelled in his ear replaced by white noise.
> My fave opening line: #11 Torment! Paints a picture haha... or maybe #6.... heh
