    at work, and one of my residents is this pregnant 19 year old, who is having horrible sickness and is feeling super lonely, and i like, made her some ginger tea and broth, and tucked her in on the couch, and am just chilling with her bc she wants company, and i'm killing time by writing bc she's trying to rest, which is all well and good, except i'm at a very pornographic scene rn, and while i usually can completely disconnect from the awkwardness of writing porn, there's something about writing detailed cunnilingus while this poor baby girl is six feet away trying not to hurl that makes it... different than usual

    #her: could you bring me another blanket? #me in the middle of daryl eating his fill of carol: sure no problem i was just writing normal things #my job is fucking weird #anyway #dunlap writes shit

    So like, does anyone else absolutely hate their own writing style? Like, really hate it? The way you naturally write your stories and what not just kind of pisses you off, because it doesn't feel correct? Been getting this a lot lately, I just want to know if anyone else has experienced this.

    Ok so, I was writing my SBI fanfic and all was going well. Fun fact: I introduced schlatt in page 69 lol. ANYWAY, all was going well, but I just now realized im projecting A LOT in wilbur (the poor dude) and I fear I may have girlbossed a little close to the sun.

    Past writings coming to haunt me

    Oh no.

    I got a comment on an old story. Like, I don't remember writing it, old story. They're hoping I finish it.... So I took a look at it. I wrote that story back in 2014 as a sequel to another one. It was a crossover where I had a vague understanding of one fandom.

    Oh, and I stopped writing it because, at that point in my writing, I managed to do what I always did. I wrote myself into a corner I couldn't get out of.

    So, I am putting off a response since they won't be the only ones let down. I reread both stories and damn it, I wanna know what happens next too. Fuck.

    I'm still around but I'm riding the struggle bus right now in terms of writing and feel really bad about it 🥺 But I'm pushing on and hoping to have a Grant Grant request posted up tomorrow (Sunday) night.

    I love y'all 💜💋

    Going through wips and stuff and seeing which ones are actually active projects and which ones i can delete and realizing I still like a lot of the ideas. And then I realize I wanna write the ideas...and that I’m much less stressed about writing the ideas as original things.

    Sitting back in disbelief: Oh I’m burnt out of fandom not writing.

    So anyway I still have six active projects I wanna finish and one more I wanna write after this one that I’m working on but after realizing I was just burnt out of the sanders sides fandom and not actively losing my ability to write in general I blacked out and wrote 1.5k in half an hour after struggling to write even 100 words for a month and a half hbnajsnd.

    #winter speaks #i am not in fact a broken piece of garbage so that's a relief #I'm still gonna take a break from writing for a couple months after I finish this bc I'm honestly exhausted and I wanna draw and embroider #more than I wanna stare at a screen and type. it kinda sucks that im tired of creating for sanders sides already its only been almost #two years since i started but its just making me more stressed than happy now for some reason. #so *shrug* cool now i have a crap ton of originals i get to write. maybe i'll illustrate them too when/if i share them #ive always wanted to try that why the heck not. i am a bit frustrated i didn't realize what the problem was sooner #but its fine that just means too i can do the loz project i have sooner than i thought too ^-^

    Consolidated Writing Advice #1

    Here are some tips that I've found while prepping for novel writing!

    1. Do not write like you are describing a movie scene to someone. Refrain from stage direction.

    2. Readers don't care that an incident happened. They care how that incident affected your characters.

    If you have any more, please add. This is just some advice that seems obvious, but you don't notice it until it's said aloud.

    Just saw a "earth has won 63 Miss Universes and the rest of the universe has none" post and now all I can think about is

    It's the year 2500(or some crap)

    Earth has finally made contact with some aliens.

    After a bit of war(as you do) the worlds are at peace.

    How do they celebrate?

    By holding a good ol fashioned beauty pageant, of course.

    Bring on the chaos!...and the hairspray keg.

    fun fact. if you go abroad for 3-6 years and speak your second language to everyone around you and study in it and watch movies in it and eventually think in it most of the time you will a) get better at that language but also b) forget parts of your first language

    With every passing day, I am more and more convinced that the government sent John and Lemar out into the field not for them to succeed against the Flag Smashers, but to die and be martyrs that the government can then use for PR to silence the Flag Smashers’ cause.

    Because why else would they send their non-powered Captain America out into the fight armed with nothing more than a handgun and a metal frisbee and one other non-powered friend who doesn’t even have a helmet? You can’t tell me that the United States government doesn’t know how to arm its soldiers when they want something to be taken care of? There are cops that are more armed than John and Lemar! Where are the gunships? Where are the back up soldiers? The rocket launchers? Stun grenades? The government is hardly lacking in equipment when they want to take out “terrorists and insurgents” but their Captain America is running around with very little field support at all?

    It’s not as if they don’t know what the battlefield is like after everything that’s happened since the aliens invaded New York. But they decided to send two regular human dudes into a field that they would very likely get out-classed in and didn’t even bother to equip them and support them properly? This coming from the same government that experimented with super soldier serum for decades because they didn’t want to fall behind on the curve? You’re telling me that if they wanted John to succeed as Captain America, they wouldn’t have shot him up with their own version of super soldier serum before sending him out there to fight? Wouldn’t that make far more sense? 

    Unless they WANTED John to fail, that John served a more useful purpose to them dead than alive.

    I would honestly not be surprised if somewhere in a future MCU story, we discover that the government did indeed sent John and Lemar out there like lambs to the slaughter, after all, we’ve already seen in the comics that the government is not above using John, whether that’s faking his death or messing with his memories to control him.

    government: new cap who’s human and with no super strength only needs a handgun and a metal frisbee and a best friend, no worries at all, it’ll be totally fine

    narrator: it was not fine
