“Well, you did have that crush on me when we were teenagers.”

“Teenagers aren’t known for the brightness of their minds,” Alec countered, almost losing his balance on the steps that led to the main deck where Jace had somehow managed to back him out. “I know better now.”

“As I said,” Jace drawled, a smug grin spreading on his face as he pointed with his chin at the steps that had Alec cornered. “Distracted. You can’t keep your mind off Magnus long enough to put up a fight.”

Alec darted a look behind his brother, and a smirk grew on his lips to match Jace’s. “It’s like he’s everywhere,” he said benevolently.

He watched, unable to hide his delight, as Jace was swept off his feet, landing heavily on his back, shock written all over his features.

Magnus stood above him and kicked the blade out of his reach, his hands on his hips as he sent a wink to Jace.

“That’s cheating!” Jace protested once he had recovered from his previous shock.

“Only if you have witnesses,” Magnus retorted, and he turned a playful look to Alec.

He shrugged. “I didn’t see anything.”

“I liked you better when you had a crush on me,” Jace groaned, accepting the hand Magnus held out to pull him back to his feet. “Pirate,” he grumbled, but it didn’t hold an ounce of reproach.

“Thank you,” Magnus replied, amusement flickering in his eyes. “We’re about three hours away from Island Dumort now, darling,” he added, gaze drifting to Alec. “The crew is started to get agitated.”

Dear Jack,

You probably won’t read this, but I want to say congratulations on 15 million subscribers!! I know you tell us not to thank you, but I’m going to do it anyway:

Thank you for being a powerful, inspirational figure to me. Thank you for making me laugh when all I want to do is disappear off the face of the earth forever and drop dead. Thank you for reminding me that I will be okay when I look at your quotes that I’ve plastered onto my walls.

Jack, I consider you my best friend. I know you don’t know me, but it feels like you do when I watch your videos. I feel like I’m there with you every time. You distract me from my anguished times of regret and horrible memories.

I make new, blissful memories with you! I love being a part of your experiences in various video games and being surprised alongside you. It really does feel like we’re playing games together on a comfy couch and laughing our asses off. Or, in some cases, becoming tense with fear.

Every one of your subscribers is a friend to you. We all love you more than you’ll ever know. I don’t have a job or any money to come see you anywhere, and sometimes I could cry because of that fact alone, but at least I can be with you in your videos.

Thank you for being my best friend and making my troubles disappear. You are truly my hero.

Love your best bud,

Bri

Part 1/2 I'm going on a really long road trip, which normally (for me) would be great since I'm kind of like an excitable dog about car rides ๐Ÿ˜œ. But I'll be with extremely hateful & homophobic extended family, so I'm hoping to just focus on music.

Part 2/2 Can you rec some music thatโ€™s good for road trips? As many as possible, please. Iโ€™d really appreciate it.


Iโ€™ve got your back, my friend. The playlist Iโ€™ve compiled for you takes tracks from several of my driving/road playlists, and is packed with a large variety of genres (I have no idea what youโ€™re into), artists, styles, and emotions. It covers all the road basesโ€“songs to dance to, songs to sing to, songs to sleep to, songs to make you feel adventures/free, songs to make you feel inspired, songs to enhance gorgeous scenery, songs to make you laugh, songs to distract you from how badly you need to pee, oldies/classics, soundtracks, etc. Enjoy!

how do you deal with distraction when you write?

Great question! It honestly depends on the project.

If I get distracted working on a fic, then I reassess. Do I have the motivation to write this right now? If yes, then I change something, make it more exciting. If it doesn’t have my attention, it’s definitely not going to get yours. If no, then I usually scrap it.

If I get distracted working on my book, I just sort of let the distraction run its course until I get distracted from my distraction by the desire to write.

To avoid getting distracted while ghostwriting, I use very strict deadlines. I have a word counter and I time myself for 20-22 minutes, and I write 1,000 words in that time period. (Just a side note: the novellas I ghostwrite are 20K, which means I can churn one out in about 7.5 hours. A fucking book. life is wild.)

writer's block: the troubleshooting guide

so i’ve been having a fair amount of issues lately in getting ideas from my brain into words on the page, and i figured i’d put all the solutions i’ve come across into one easy to read place

problem one: wrong mindset

so you want to work, but you find your brain isn’t cooperating right now? it might just not be your day, sure, but first off, see if there’s anything hindering your focus

-what’s the current temperature? a too warm environment can really cloud your brain and make you tired - some people find the same is true for too cold environments. is there anything you can do to make it better?

-have you had enough to eat and drink today?

-is there anything distracting you? if you’re not sure, try moving to someplace else, or changing something about your environment, and see if you work better (if you have a tumblr tab open while working, other than for posts like this, close it)

problem two: ideas

so you’re in the right mindset, or as close as you can get. you’re looking at your story and you think you know more or less what happens, but everything feels kinda stale, you’ve been looking at it too long, or you’ve reached a point where you just don’t know what to do.

you need to introduce something new to the equation. there are lots of ways writers can do this. some ask their friends, some turn to other stories or things around then for inspiration. but if that’s not working out for you, what i find most helpful is to find a random word generator. there are plenty on the internet.

generate as many words as you want, i’ve been using lists of 40 at a time. then look at the words and think of any way they could relate to your characters or your plot. some examples i’ve had:

word: lizard - is there anyway i could introduce lizards into my plotline? as a minor enemy, as an interest of one of my characters, etc etc.

word: arrow - hey, one of my characters does archery, can i do a scene about that?

word: haywire - what were to happen if something went wrong with this technology? how would the characters solve it?

word: egocentric - what’s the most selfish thing my character could do? what would cause them to do it? can i incorporate that?

just see what comes first to mind - remind yourself why you love this story and these characters in the first place. you’re a writer, you’re capable of a lot.

then its just a matter of refining those ideas and seeing what works for what scene, and where you could possibly go from here (remember, you can always generate more words)

problem three: structure

so you’ve got your ideas, you know more or less how this scene goes. but you just can’t figure out how to get from beginning to end.

there’s no simple trick for this one, i’m afraid, and it’s easily the most boring of the lot, but it does need to be done.

look at your characters. what do they want at the beginning of the scene? do they get it? do their wants change by the end? what things happen that are out of their control? what things in this scene cause conflict?

use questions like these to build a structure, as detailed as you can. (the more detailed the structure the less you need to think about it when you come to write the scene). if you’re still having trouble, this post goes into a lot more detail (and has been a big help for me along the way)

once you have your structure, then you can start writing. again, this is something you just have to do. but my advice - don’t think about the quality of it. we have step four for that. just make sure you have words on the page - you can fix a poorly written scene. you can’t do anything with a scene that’s only in your head.

problem four: quality

(to give credit where credit is due i got the idea for this one from this post but seriously it works)

so you have a scene. you don’t like it, but it’s there. it’s kinda stale, it doesn’t flow well, and you’re not happy with all of the dialogue. but at least there’s no gaps in it.

the fix for this is actually pretty simple. if you’re on a computer, open your scene on one half of the screen and a blank document on the other. if you’re using a different device, or writing by hand, you may have to find a different workaround, but as long as you can see your old writing, and have somewhere to write the new scene.

now, copy it over. rewrite it. don’t think about it too much, just start writing your old scene, and let yourself change it whenever you have a better way to write it. in my experience, this instantly ups the quality of it. because you’re writing the scene in one go, the rhythm comes naturally, you can get rid of what you don’t like, and finding a workaround is easier because you know what comes before and after it.

i normally only have to do this once before i’m happy with it, sometimes twice, but there’s no limit on how many times you can do this. every time it will get better. (and you’re far less likely to miss typos and spelling mistakes - one time i even noticed half a sentence i’d missed out that i’d never noticed when editing the original scene).

writing is hard, no doubt about it, but hopefully, whatever you’re stuck on, this’ll make things a little easier

“Gay Stuff...”

I speak from experiance, I have been known to say this! lol

For, anon!

From, SPRING BREAK PROMPT LIST!!! Check it out HERE!!!

You’d been visiting Liv and were sitting in her office for a couple hours now. You just wanted to take her home, but she kept getting more and more busy.  You sighed audibly when she walked back in her office. You watched as her hips swayed and her perfume passed. She was rather distracting and you smiled widely when she noticed you looking.

“I know.” She chuckled. “I’ll be done soon.”

“Are you actually serious this time?” You sighed.

“Yes.” She smirked. “Right after I talk to my squad, one more time.”


When Liv returned you sat up excitedly. She greeted you with a kiss.

“Gay.” You joked.

“Speaking of gay, I’m going to do some gay stuff right now.” She quirked an eyebrow.

“Really?” You beamed. “Am I the gay? Am I the gay stuff? Are you going to do me?” You shook your shoulders suggestively.

Liv bursted out laughing.

“Why of course.” She replied pulling you up into her embrace.
