but i usually give in and do it anyway

OOC

Oh hey look.. another post where I tell you I am not around much -_-

oh life…why can’t you give me time to rp like a good surly bastard.

Ok.. so BESIDES the usual piles of work, darlings I have so much on my plate family-in-law wise. Hospitals and appointments, responsibilities to the point I might explode. 

But not really, I have this. I always do :)

Anyway.

As always, sorry for delays.

The day I apparently broke the internet! From Dallascon16

So I have come to learn that quite a lot of people have seen this photo and only about half know the amazing story behind it. So I thought I would finally tell it here on tumblr!

I had bought a mishalecki photo op ticket on the Thursday before the convention but had absolutely no clue what pose to do, until it hit me. I am a hug Misha fan, and every time I have gotten to talk to him I am usually sarcastic and try to match his wit. I also love Jared, he is like an actually giant puppy. Anyway way the whole fandom knows that Misha had bragged about how flexible he is, well I am quite flexible too. Just as flexible as Misha actually,lol! So then this pose came to mind. I knew it would crack Jared up and it would give me a chance to show off some skill. I didn’t want to many people knowing what pose I was going to do because I was afraid volunteers might not be keen on the idea or I just wanted it to be a surprise.

So I was third or so in line for the photo and Misha and Jared set the tone pretty quickly with their entrance that screamed fun and sexy. Half the people in the room knew what pose I was gonna do and the other half didn’t. When it came my turn I walked up to Jared and Misha, I had to repeat it twice but for the sake of just retyping the same things I will write once.

I stood between Jared and Misha, looking at Jared while I kept Misha in my sights. I said this, “ Hey guys so I am going to do a pose you have never done before. (They began to smile; I then gently put my hand on Misha’s chest to direct Jared’s attention) See I am more flexible than Misha is, (Jared chuckled, Misha looked curious) so I am going to do a reverse table top yoga pose and I want you two to arm wrestle on my stomach. Look as extreme as possible, got it!?” I had to repeat this twice, but both were smiling and went ok, I have a feeling they were still confused, that was until I hit the ground. I heard half the room gasp,slightly, and the other half sorta whispering. From above I heard Jared and Misha go at the same time, “OH”, they had finally understood. Jared actually signaled for Chris to do another picture because he realized they both were not ready when the photo was taken, I am so glad he did cause it turned out amazing.

As I started to come out of the pose Jared helped me up, which was basically pulling me 3ft into the air, I am 5′2! He went, “Damn girl that was kick ass!” and gave me a high five. I told both of them thank you and started to walk away when Misha decided he was not done with me yet. Misha gently grabbed my arm and pulled me back. He leaned in so close to my face I could feel his scruff and he whispered, “ Your not more flexible than me.” As I turned to look at him he gave me the Casifer grin and winked. And to put the cherry on top of me walking away I started smiling and wagging my finger going, “No no no no no”, and the damn music stopped. Misha and Jared chuckled and I left. Later that day I showed Jared the photo, he cracked up laughing and decided to sign it, even though I already had his auto. I was like Jared stop and he went, nope I am signing this. He also signed it with AKF.

There you have it, my crazy story!

Natasha leaned forward and held his gaze, not an ounce of doubt in her demeanor. “Absolutely.”

It was too early in the morning for this childish banter, you thought from your seated position at the far end of the long kitchen table. You slumped forward, dipping the tea bag in and out of the steaming mug of liquid before you, then setting it on the small saucer beside it. Wrapping your hands around the cup’s warmth, your eyes unfocused as you continued to tune out the blathering of your teammates. The only other person in the room paying them no mind was Bucky, who was slouched in a cozy chair, thoroughly engrossed in a book.

“Now wait a minute,” a third voice joined the argument, “If we’re gonna do this, we gotta level the playing field a little. Nat could do this in her sleep. We need someone a little more…down to earth. How about Y/N?” Sam gestured toward you.

Blinking a few times, you finally broke out of your stupor. “Hey! I was only half listening to your stupidity, but I think I’m offended.”

anonymous asked:

How do you draw hair? It's so amazing!

This is super old and I’m sorry for taking so long to reply omg; I just haven’t had the motivation to sit down and take screenshots of my progress haha.

Anyway, with that out of the way: I have approximately 0 idea what I’m doing while painting hair (or anything, really), so I can’t quite explain how I do it. The most I can give you is sceenshots of my progress and maybe make a few notes here and there! I’m using Gimp, but these tips should apply to most drawing programs.

for this i’ll be using Marinette of course because her hair is a gift from the gods and painting it brings me joy

here’s the sketch:

now, i usually draw some sort of lineart, too, but a clean sketch works just fine as well (plus i’m lazy and I wanna paint lol). when using a sketch as a base, i change the color to a light brown by going to Color -> Colorize, before setting the layer to Multiply and lowering the Opacity to 70-90%.

here’s some basic coloring but we’re just gonna focus on the hair here, so take the base color and smear it over everything

don’t worry about it looking perfect! after you’ve dumped the color on your canvas try to give the hair some very basic shading just to guide you:

from this point on, i usually have no idea what i’m doing. basically, i merge the lineart/sketch layer with the color layer, grab a sharp brush, and go crazy.

Oh, and i also use the color picker tool. A lot.

here’s what i ended up with this time:

oftentimes i tend to play with Brightness/Contrast and Color Balance, while adding some Color Dodge layers here and there.

end result:

And yeah that’s basically how I draw hair?? Just throw a bunch of colors into your canvas and pray they make art lol. Good luck! <3

ok one of the fucking funniest childhood memories i have is this one time when i was around 7

me and my friend would collect webkinz and some of them dated each other. my pink pony, lollipop was dating her lil’kinz penguin, michael

a few months later, people were playing american idol karaoke at some guys birthday party (for wii i think?) and thats where i heard rihanna’s unfaithful for the first time. i was literally so entranced and inspired that when i got home that night i listened to it again on youtube and read every lyric carefully

i got so inspired that i had the sudden idea to make my pony write a break-up letter to michael, but the words were going to be the lyrics to unfaithful with some pronouns changed. the letter was literally like

Dear Michael,

Story of my life
Searching for the right
But it keeps avoiding me
Sorrow in my soul
Cause it seems that wrong
Really loves my company

He’s more than a man
And this is more than love
The reason that the sky is blue
The clouds are rolling in
Because I’m gone again
And to you I just can’t be true

And I know that you know I’m unfaithful
And it kills you inside
To know that I am happy with some other guy
I can see you dying

I don’t wanna do this anymore
I don’t wanna be the reason why
Every time I walk out the door
I see you die a little more inside
I don’t wanna hurt you anymore
I don’t wanna take away your life
I don’t wanna be
A murderer

~Lollipop

i actually thought i was so poetic?? anyway the next day, my friend comes over as usual, and i say in the saddest and most sentimental voice, “um.. lollipop wanted me to give michael this letter… she couldn’t do it herself..” like i was really into this

so she opens the letter and after reading maybe 2 lines she just looks me dead in the eyes and says “these are the lyrics to unfaithful by rihanna” and i can still remember the blood draining from my face

You weren’t entirely sure how you had ended up in this situation. Of course you knew you were going to see him. There was no way around it. He was your brother’s roommate, but you had come to hang out with your older brother because you missed him. Jared was only two years older than you and you had done everything together growing up.

You knew he lived with Jensen but you had thought you would only have to endure his best friend while you were at the apartment. You certainly hadn’t pictured yourself sitting in a bar filled with bimbos helping your brother pick out a rebound girl for his best friend, that was for sure. If you had thought that was how you would be spending your Saturday night you would have stayed in Austin.

You knew Jared wasn’t doing it on purpose, but it didn’t stop you wanting to kick his stupid face in every time he pointed in the direction of some blonde with her boobs hanging out.

  • and this boy goddamn gets down, hovering his body over you 
  • you’re instantly blushing at the proximity which tom grins cheekily about 
    • seriously, this is dumb what are you doing tom” 
  • and he starts doING PUSH UPS 
  • you just splutter for a few moments, flaming cheeks 
  • bc yeah this definitely is filed under: things that turn me on way more than they should 
  • tom’s watching your reaction sMIRKING LIKE A LITTLE ASSHOLE
  • and when you finally gather your senses, clearing your throat
  • he fucking surprises you again by kissing you when he’s down in the push up 
  • you outright gasp and tom winks
  • he knows exactly what he’s doing to you
    • thomas stanley holland did you just–
    • you’re my motivation, alright?” 
  • you can’t help but giggle because that is adorable
    • and nothing is more motivating than your kisses
  • he does loads of sets, gaining a kiss from you with every push up 
  • it is very motivating 
  • and eventually he stops because he’s tried and just flops onto you
    • gross! you’re sweaty, tom 
  • he just whines because he’s tired and doesn’t really wanna move in that moment
    • okay, yes i am very proud of you tom but please move your sweaty ass off of me
  • he like rolls off you and you giggle at this dork 
  • but after he’s recovered from push ups (he recovered really quickly so you’re real surprised)

  • so you just square him up, getting right in his face 
    • ready, holland? 
  • he just narrows his eyes in challenge
  • so you lean in and kiss him on the nose 
  • and his entire ‘tough’ demeanor just falls apart as he giggles at that
    • babe, no yOU CAN’T DO THAT, THAT ISN’T FAIR
  • basically, you never really get to box against him 
  • there’s little water fights between you 
  • which actually started because you held your drink bottle the wrong way round and squeezed
  • and tom got a face full of water
  • jaw dropped, he stared at you in disbelief with water dripping 
  • and he probably would’ve dropped it if you had apologized
  • but you couldn’t stop laughing
    • i can’t believe you just did that! you tosser!” 
    • did you just seriously call me a tosser? 
  • bfsdkdljd yeah i want a sweaty tom doing push ups over me 
  • bless alyssa and meggnog for these ideas

000booyouwhore000  asked:

I finally cracked and told my doctor about the depression and anxiety I have been having for a while and he put me on Prozac. It's the first time I've ever had to take meds for depression and he told me it would take a few weeks to even out. It's been almost 6 weeks, and while I feel better than I did before, today is just a pit of hopelessness and bad feelings. I know not every day will be ponies and rainbows, but I don't want these bad days to become more frequent. Any advice?

So first and most importantly: I am so happy for you, and so proud of you for getting help for your depression and anxiety. 

Bad days still happen, and sometimes they will happen without any logical reason or trigger. It sucks, and it’s really important to be gentle with yourself when it happens. 

Everyone has a different way to manage these days. I make an effort to separate what’s real from what my brain is telling me, and I remind myself that the hopelessness and bad feelings are being created by my brain chemicals, because Depression Lies. Then I work through some steps that I’ve written about before, including things like: taking a shower, eating a good meal, taking a walk, getting the h*ck away from the news and the Internet, snuggling with my dogs, sharing my lousy feelings with Anne. 

There’s no magic thing we can do that will push the bad feelings away, but I have found that, by doing some or all of those things, I can usually manage my Depression flare ups.

The one thing that I can tell you with absolute confidence is that THIS WILL PASS. IT IS NOT FOREVER. YOUR BRAIN IS HAVING A BAD DAY BUT IT WILL GET BETTER.

I know that hearing those words when you’re in the middle of it doesn’t help, but I’m giving them to you, anyway, because when the bad feelings pass, you can look back on them and know that they were true. Maybe that will help next time.

I sincerely hope this helps. Please talk to your doctor or a qualified professional if you still feel bad after a couple of days, because you may need help that I can’t give you. Check in with me and let me know how you’re doing, okay?

I just can’t stop thinking about Jack singing. Cause I am a *sucker* for good voices.

Just, imagine Jack actually enjoying like random chill indie bands, and really old stuff like the Beatles style as well as old country (he’s into softer, slower songs). Like everyone gives him crap for not know current pop figures, but he knows obscure bands and oldies. Like Jack probs uses BandCamp.

Anyways, this boy has a beautiful voice (and so do both of his parents). He doesn’t sing often, and he usually only does it alone cause thats the only time when he really listens to music that he knows and enjoys anyways. He also hums a lot an sings softly when he jogs at the asscrack of dawn.

SO because Jack is a private man, it’s not often that others hear him sing, or even know he sing. Lardo and Shitty both know, as Shitty is his roomie and Lardo is low-key too and knows when not to chirp Jack. They both share a love of chill indie bands and recommend songs to each other a lot. Like just a random text to each other will just be like

Lardo: “Daylight - Matt & Kim”
Jack: cool thanks

When Bitty and Jack start dating, Bitty doesn’t know about Jack singing, or his taste in music, but he finds out one morning when he pads into the bathroom in Jack’s *cough* their *cough* apartment and Jack is showering and he’s playing music and singing.

Bitty just like, his heart melts. And he just listens and stays there real quiet until Jack gets out. He jumps a bit and flushes when he sees the lovey look on Bitty’s face.

After that they have like a long chat about music taste and Bitty tells Jack they should listen to his stuff more, cause normally Bitty just controls the music cause he didn’t really know what Jack listened to, but now they take turns and Bitty actually likes that style a bit too sometimes.

To sum it all up, Jack being 110% himself around Bitty and very relaxed and being able to belt out songs in the cars with Beyonce on and also like have the sexiest, smoothest voice when calmer songs are on. Boyfriends just being cute and singing together and Jack serenading Bitty probably and slow dancing in the kitchen and ahhhhhhhh!

Right so I’ve made posts about this before but I just wanted to say something, speaking as someone who has never had credit stolen and has really only seen a couple friends experience that as well. My point being, I’m not just coming from some emotional self righteous place. I’m coming from a place of being a human being who believes in the common sense that if somebody created something, they should get credit for it. A fact which is apparently lost on or ignored by many people.

Let’s get some things straight:

  • Tagging or captioning something “not mine” does not make it okay to post without credit.
  • Saying “thanks but that’s not mine” when people compliment your post does not mean you’re giving credit.
  • People who create original content deserve to be credited. Some posters may have spent hours creating something, only to watch it be posted by someone who didn’t put in any of that effort, and gain recognition and likes and what have you without crediting the person who made it exist in the first place.
  • It doesn’t matter if it’s a photograph or a drawing (those seem to be the most common). Give credit to the creator.
  • It takes. So. Little. Time. To credit. Ideas in descending order according to length and effort:
    • Reposted from ____
    • Originally from ____
    • Posted by ____
    • Credit to ____
    • From _____ (that’s literally four letters, plus a link or username. I think you can handle that)
  • If you can’t find the original post via reverse Google search, at least link back to the source URL. It’s simply the decent thing to do.
  • Who really enjoys stupid, stressful arguments over credit? The offenders get defensive and mad, the posters get hurt and even angrier, and it all could be prevented by the simple act of crediting.
  • Like seriously. If for no other reason, just credit the damn person to avoid clogging people’s dashes with angry posts, wasting everyone’s time in blocking you, and getting into fights with internet people you’ll never see in real life.
  • Isn’t plagiarism bad? I mean the school system, internet, and life failed you drastically if you’ve never heard of plagiarism. People get suspended, failed, and expelled for it. So clearly that’s not cool.
  • As a final note, it would be very nice of you to even consider ASKING permission *gasp* before reposting. What a NOVEL idea! Let’s look at some options, shall we?
    • I wish I could *insert skill here* like you. Maybe you could give me some pointers? In the meantime would it be okay if I reposted this for inspiration/reference?
    • Hi! I really love this post and I was wondering if I could repost it to my *insert social media here*
    • Hey! Do you mind if I repost this? (oh DAMN look at that, that one took me less than 30 seconds to type. Holy shit the miracles of giving credit)

Long story short, JUST GIVE CREDIT. I cannot wrap my mind around why people find this such an insurmountable burden. Usually you got the photo directly from the source anyway, so you know where it came from. And it takes less than 5 minutes to do a reverse Google image search; if you can’t find ANY information, either consider not posting it and asking permission to repost something else, or at least put down the URL to indicate that this is not original content.

THE END.

P.S. Give credit. Please.

Iwaoi fluff Headcanons.

I am an absolute hoe for Iwa [and Oikawa I guess] Ask anyone of my mutuals or my friends, they know. Be it his personality, character, quirks; no matter what people may thik of him, I love this boy with my life. Also, Iwaoi is my absolute favourite ship, and since I need something to do while I suffer from writer’s block for chapter 2 of Drowning in my Demons, have this post dedicated to my precious cinnamon buns. So, if you love Iwa [And his Tofu-nugget] as much as I do, sit back and enjoy these little headcanons I came up with.


  • Iwa is definitely the cuddly-type. He loves snuggling in bed, hugging his Godzilla plushie when he’s alone while having some popcorn watching movies. Occasionally, he falls asleep mid-way through the movie, but that’s a rare feat, when this happens, his mom tends to laugh it off and help tuck him snuggly into his bed. However, when Oikawa comes over and they share a bed, he is the small spoon while Tooru is the big spoon. He always ends up nuzzling into the bigger’s chest, and Tooru lovingly stroking his hair. He secretly takes photographs of the raven and sets it as his wallpaper.
  • When reversed and Iwa sleeps over at Oikawa’s house, he never brings his own clothes. I get that people usually see Oikawa to be the type to steal Iwa’s clothes, but for me, I imagine Iwa to mock Tooru’s dreadful fashion sense but steal his hoodies anyway. Tooru has no complaints and lets his boyfriend do what he wants; he secretly loves it because Haji just looks good in over-sized clothes.  
  • Also, bonus, Iwa smacking Tooru with the long-ass sleeves rather than headbutting him. Tooru retaliates by tickling Hajime till he gives in. They collapse onto the bed and Tooru apologises with forehead kisses.
  • When Iwa wakes up, he can barely open his eyes, he expects Tooru to be in bed with him, so when he isn’t, he will very softly call for him. Tooru finds it adorable and showers him with kisses. But when they do wake up in bed together, he will cuddle as close as he can to Oikawa who would probably be using his phone.
  • Tooru trying the face-swap filter on snapchat with Iwa, and casually saying, “These would be what our children would like.” Iwa is a fucking mess and Oikawa is laughing so hard. Also, Oikawa has at least 341 pictures of Iwa with the puppy filter, the fact that he’s eyes are closed most of the time makes it a hundred times funnier. He sends them to Mattsun and Makki, and even those two find Iwa adorable. 
  • Hajime trying to get out of bed but Tooru won’t let him. He’s using kisses and cuddles as a distraction.
  • My headcanon is that Tooru gets sick easily because of how much milkbread he eats. He most commonly gets a flu or a bad cold but they quickly go away after a few days. As for Hajime, he hardly falls ill, but when he does, it’s the most heartbreaking thing. Once he was running an abnormally high fever and had to stay overnight at the hospital? Oikawa spent an entire day trying to perfect a soup and his favourite Agedashi Tofu before bringing it to the raven. Iwa is extremely thankful and promises him kisses when he gets better.
  • Iwa has a dwarf bunny that he loves with all he has, instead of calling it Godzilla, he calls it Tofu because of how white and fragile she is. She was actually a present from his mom as a replacement for not getting him a puppy; he doesn’t mind and is just happy he has something to take care of. He spends hours grooming her fur in his bed and sometimes, she accompanies him as he watches a movie. Iwa has trained her to sit and lie down and even hop. She is also incredibly intelligent given the fact that she will squeak for attention. She is a good bunny and loves Tooru as well, Iwaizumi’s mom jokingly said it’s like Tofu is their shared child.
  • Oikawa’s and Iwaizumi’s mother sharing cute things their sons did for the other. How Hajime was learning to make milkbread to give it to Tooru on his birthday, and how Oikawa had suggested building a blanket fort before watching Godzilla together. They are close friends and the biggest shippers.
  • When they have the house to themselves, Iwa is the one preparing breakfast, Tooru tries distracting him with a lot of kissing and hugs from behind and now the pancakes are burning. They have a heated make-out session on the countertop before they actually realise the smell of smoke.
  • They take baths in the bathtub together. They end up having a splash war and wetting the entire bathroom. Sometimes Iwa sits in Oikawa’s lap while the brunette washes his hair and hugs him. He also takes this rare chance to leave a few hickies. 
  • Blanket forts being their childhood tradition. Oikawa decorating the blanket fort with fairy lights and throwing in as many pillows as he could possibly find. When Iwa comes over, he has his laptop all prepared with their favourite snacks. Oikawa likes watching Iwa quote lines from the movie, Hajime has no idea he’s paying more attention to him than the actual movie. And it’s best if it stays that way.
  • Hardcore Mario kart wars, there is no fluff, only profanities, cusses and death.
  • Oikawa will tease Hajime with his cereal by holding the box as high as he can, he has lanky limbs so Iwa can’t reach them. As payback, he sneaks out while Oikawa is sleeping before getting a cup of cold water and pouring it on his face, not forgetting to say, “WHO’S THE SHORT ONE NOW ASSHOLE??”
  • Hajime has freckles all over his body; and sometimes he’s really insecure about them. Tooru assures him it’s fine and makes sure to kiss all of them.
  • Look me in the goddamn eye and tell me these two don’t sit together on the bus to training camps and shit. Because I swear, they will sit together and even share ear pieces, sometimes they doze off and fall asleep, Iwa usually resting on Oikawa’s broader shoulders.
  • Iwa likes collecting succulents and small plants. He displays them on his desk or by his window-sill. He gives them names and Tooru thinks it’s both funny and cute.
  • Have some cute flustered Iwa when Tooru calls him babe in front of the team. And also, the entire team letting out whoops and cheers and Iwa just wants to hide in a hole. Sometimes they stare at each other like love-struck idiots and the Matsuhana duo use this amazing opportunity to tease them. Tooru coming up from behind to give Hajime a surprise kiss.
  • Tooru finding every excuse to hold Hajime’s hand, and Iwa giving in.
  • They once went to build-a-bear together and made a stuffed crocodile that Iwa for some odd reasons says is a Zoey. Iwa has it next to his Godzilla plushie.
  • Having so many cheesy dates. A picnic date, stargazing, to the aquarium, the zoo, a waterpark. These two have the cutest most romantic dates and everyone is jealous. Bonus if they get each other presents.
  • Iwa tackling the fuck out of Oikawa after not having seen him for months. Tooru laughs and tries his best to force out a “Did you miss me?” as Iwa lays on his chest. IWaizumi saying in a dead-serious tone, “Of course I did.”
  • During winter, they like cuddling by the fireplace, Iwa is mumbling on about how flippin cold it is, and Tooru just watching him go on endearingly. They have a huge blanket out and everything along with some hot cocoa. Half-way during their cuddling session, Tooru starts kissing Hajime’s neck. He heats up and ask what the hell is he doing and Tooru just smirking saying he’s helping him warm up. Hajime is upset cause it worked.
  • Hajime has cute soft sneezes.
  • Before they fall asleep, Tooru likes singing for Iwa. Some of his favourites are You are my Sunshine, Can’t help falling in love and Perfect. He may not have the best voice but Iwa loves it either way.
  • When Iwa starts falling asleep, Tooru quietly whispers a sweet “I love you” before dozing off too.

I’m dedicating this to some of the few friends I’ve made here, [I’m so sorry if you don’t consider me to be one] and just overall really sweet people.

So I’m in the process of planning a modern save story thing and while I make a lot of sims myself, I’d love it if you could make some sims for me to use as well! This project is a LONG way off, hoping to start it sometime by the end of the year.  I’m going to try exploring different things with this and some things might be a little darker, but I want to give it a try.

Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • Any family given to me must have at least on sim child or teen.  They are the stars of this project. 
  • Let me know which world you picture them living in. (except magnolia promenade and granite falls)
  • Feel free to write up a little bio for the kids or the family in general.
  • CC is welcome, but please only mm hairstyles.  (I love alpha, it just doesn’t love me)
  • Human’s only please.
  • And lastly, I just ask that I be allowed to edit any sims so that they fit my game style.  (ie.  I kinda use mostly large eyes on my sims, so being able to adjust eye size or something simple like that)


I’m making this announcement really early I know, but I want time to be able to decorate their houses to fit their styles but to also make some specific recolors for them, including family photos.

I’m not expecting any families right away, but I will probably reblog this twice a week(timezone reblogs) until I announce that I’m not longer taking anymore. You can send me families as tray files or add them to the gallery with #edensstar,  but please message me on here so I know to take a look if you post to the gallery. 

:)  Happy sim making!

“forget Bendy, it’s ladies night”

it’s… it’s so dangerous to give me ideas… i don’t think i’ve literally said two words to @thelostmoongazer … i actually love the mob boss bendy au, even though i’m usually incredibly bad at keeping up with stuff that have a lot of characters and plotstuff, it’s super good

well anyway this is the beginning and end of this little presumptuous idea no need to worry i just.. had.. to draw it… 

Hello, friends! I’ve had a few people interested in finding out how I made these gradual-colour gifs I posted recently, so I thought I’d do a tutorial for anyone who wants to give it a go :)

As I’ve mentioned before I didn’t use a tutorial myself, I just figured out my own way of doing it using my Photoshop/gif knowledge and an existing gifset as a guide. I also had to work around a few Photoshop glitches I usually struggle with, so my way might be slightly over-complicated ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) But anyway let’s get started!

I wasn’t myself. After that day on the rooftop with Sehun, my behaviour towards everything and everybody had changed. At the beginning I brushed it off, but the longer I ignored it, the bigger the gnawing feeling on my insides got until I couldn’t ignore it anymore. 

Jay and Baekhyun had both noticed my change in demeanor and there was nothing I could do. Each day felt as if it was a struggle and it’s all my fault. 

The second I accepted this job I had told myself that I would remain professional and just do what was expected of me and go home. That was my plan, which now was slowly falling to pieces. I let Sehun get to me again and this was the result.

hey! how are you? story time, lol - I have spent about 5 years on this whole series that I plan to publish. all the characters are set, I know what I want them to go through, and how both the individual novels and the whole series should go. my problem is that, even though I write scenes here and there, I can't seem to be able to write at least the first book, to connect the scenes together. most I've done was redo my outline hundreds of times and write first drafts of 2 chaps. help/advice?

I’m doing quite well because of a super-productive meeting, thanks for asking!

I’m certainly impressed by your dedication to that story, but with that dedication comes my obligatory warnings about The Danger of the Story You’ve Always Wanted to Write and Why You Should Avoid Knowing Your Characters Too Well. I don’t mean to scare you or turn you away from your work, but it’s something that a lot of writers need to hear, especially early on in their skill development. It only helps you in the long run to at least be aware of the potential issues.

Part of that reason I stress it for you in particular, is because you haven’t really written much and yet you have this elaborate plan. When you get around to actually writing things, that plan isn’t going to cooperate was well as you want it to. You’ll get new ideas in the middle of scenes and you’ll need to be able to decide what to do about them. Some may change a small detail, some may overhaul your ending. You also may find that your plan has holes or your characters have inconsistencies that aren’t noticeable until you see them in scene form, and you need to be flexible enough to work with the issues you find without giving up. Writing isn’t easy. 

I’m in a wordy mood today so I also feel the need tell you about publishing, since you mentioned that’s a goal. If you’re self-publishing, you can ignore the rest of this paragraph, though it may be an interesting read anyway. Publishers, unless you’re already well-known and popular, do not usually accept series. You need to write your first book to work as a standalone novel with a complete plot, but loose ends are okay and can work as a ‘teaser’ to see if readers really want to stick with your work. The reason for this is publishers want things to sell, and a first book is like a test. If it sells well, they can grant your wish for the rest of the series, but if they can’t market or make money off your product then they wont extend the offer. It’s a common business practice for more than just books, and there’s no such thing as a 100% guarantee in business.

For your issue about being unable to write, here’s a few potential problems and how to fix them:

- You’re probably focusing too hard on your outline. Writing is one of those things where being too rigid can actually hurt your progress, as mentioned in my first earlier link, because that outline isn’t going to create any of the emotions that a story can need. An outline can have lots of detail, but it’s always missing the personal element that makes a scene come to life, which is often what creates that enjoyment of writing/reading.

- If you really have an outline that detailed, then you should already have scene connections. Look at the logic of your plot. You have to get your characters from point A to point B somehow, and sometimes that just means throwing in a time skip. I just read a book that had 5 chapters that took place in a single day and then 1 that spanned the course of a week. If nothing important is happening, don’t focus on it. 

- Related to that, your scenes should have a sense of flow. There should be a logical structure (often cause-effect) that connects each scene to make up a full story. There’s also a lot of things that connect between scenes, like emotions, reactions, etc. If two characters get in a fight in scene 1 over a choice, whichever choice prevails is going to affect both of them in scene 2.

- Here’s an ask briefly covering scene transitions if moving between them is really causing that much trouble.

- Don’t sweat the small stuff. You’re better off alluding to a small event (like a character dropping off a letter in the mail, even if it’s super plot significant!) than showing it. Showing too many little things can really drag a story down, though it’s possible to integrate them into bigger scenes with some skill and practice. Have you seen this ask where I explain the multi-purpose scene? This is one example of how to integrate tiny things that matter into the more important scenes.

- Drafts of two chapters is a start! Now figure out why that’s all you’ve written. There’s a reason you aren’t getting things done and you need to figure out what it is. Is it insecurity about your writing? No examples to follow? No time? The wrong mood? There are so many things that affect writing and unless you figure out the exact cause, I can only help so much. I seriously recommenced reading more, since your question is something that you can see so many examples of in published fiction, and examples are a great way to learn.

I’m sorry I couldn’t give specific advice, but the issue of “my writing isn’t working” isn’t really specific either. I covered what I thought might help, but I’m serious about you needing to figure out what the roadblock is. I can help much more once you know, and it’s good practice to be able to problem-solve with your own writing like that. 

Good luck with everything!
