Yewleaf

Yewleaf’s revamped design.

And StreamClan let out a collective chuckle and groan. 

Yewleaf is a happy jokester and enjoy’s tussling with kits and apprentices then turning around and ripping a fresh new one at any cat that dares belittle his best friend, Twoface. Though Yewleaf prefers to use his fast wit, charm, and jokes to get out of most situation he’s all claws and fangs when it comes to protecting Twoface and helping his friend feel confident and loved in the clan. 

He may be a little small and scruffy but he’s gone toe to toe with Pikefang several times over his mistreatment of his friend. After they clobber one another (and the punishments that the fight usually leads to) he’ll go back to his normal, goofy self.

What's a reason to go on living when it feels there is none?

I’ve definitely struggled at times with finding and fostering reasons to go on living, particularly when I first renounced my religion. Society is woefully underequipped to offer secular folks resources for finding meaning and purpose outside of religion. Ultimately, though, I’ve put in many years of exploring, defining, and cultivating meaning for myself, and it’s been a scary yet heartening ride. It’s taken many years of practice to even begin to internalize the idea that life can be just as meaningful, imbued with real and robust reasons for living, even when we must be the authors of that meaning and those reasons. The responsibility of holding the pen of authorship can be daunting and overwhelming, I know. And self-authored meaning can, at first, feel flimsy and fake. But this will fade with time and hard work. It’s possible to get to a point where the love and union we feel toward our friends and family, or the humble contentedness of enjoying a good meal or reading a good book, or the sense of elation and connection that comes from a tough conversation or from lending a hand to someone in need can be on fire with genuine and profound meaning–providing us with not only reasons to keep living, but even a deep and all-encompassing sense of gratitude for life. It’s these seemingly small things that equip existence with all the meaning we could hope for. We are all thrown into existence, awakened to a frightening and confusing mess of things, and it is up to us, as individuals and as communities, to make it as meaningful as possible. This is no small task, nor is it inauthentic or moot. It is real, as real as anything can be. As David Foster Wallace put it, ‘None of this is about religion, or dogma, or big fancy questions of life after death. The capital-T Truth is about life before death.’

I’ve written about the issue of authoring and maintaining meaning before, here, here, here, and here. There are a variety of resources listed in those posts. Nevertheless, all of this can ring hollow when we are struggling. More concretely, sometimes the best reason and remedy might just be knowing that someone cares. Sometimes we simply need to hear a friendly voice. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline offers free and confidential support 24/7. As scary and hard as it may be, I encourage people to reach out: 1-800-273-8255

Writer friends,

I’ve been thinking about forming a sort of writers group. Not like a collaborative writing thing, but more or less a support group to help each other stay motivated, share resources, and work out problems with our own individual projects. It would be a pretty relaxed, low key thing, and I’m considering making a discord server for it. 

If anyone is interested in this sort of thing, let me know please. I figured with Nano approaching its end, some of you guys might want extra help staying motivated and/or continuing your project, and I just kinda need motivation in general, and I’ve had this idea for a while. I’m not setting up anything immediately, probably in the next couple of days, and I’ll reblog this post a couple of times, but let me know if any of you would want in. 

Thankful

I couldn’t be more happy and more thankful for the friends that I have made in a year into months.Not to mention a certain GJ27 that basically made me even happier and loved in just 3 months. I am so so happy I was so happy to meet you guys. You are all amazing, great and talented artists, very humorous, and just so much more that I can’t name off. Hoping that this friendship can last. Love you all!!!😊😊😊❤❤❤❤

I’m not a BNF but my fics get decent enough attention and sometimes I feel bad that other creators don’t get the same amount. There’s so many hidden gems out there that are overlooked that I feel bad when friends say “I finally hit 100 kudos!” when they deserve at least 500.

RIGHT OMG

in one hand it’s a “good” sign because that means there are a lot of creators out there in the fandom, but quantity doesn’t mean quality and it hinders good creators and stops them from getting more recognition.

hopefully that doesn’t discourage anyone!! kudos and hits and comments are extremely important to motivate writers, but writing should be a fun activity for the writer in the first place. we really should encourage writers more because it’s!!! so hard!!! to get recognition in this fandom, sometimes it takes months to start getting some sort of awareness.

I always toss my feelings aside for others and people think I am a really cheerful person when in reality I just know that no one has the time for me or wants to hear abt me being unhappy. And I know one of my closest friends has all the attention because she's more beautiful and I know it's not her fault but I can attest that everybody likes her romantically and meantime I'm just... really unhappy because of it. I don't what's wrong with me

Your feelings matter and I’m sorry that you feel like you need to hide them because people won’t care. Because I promise you, they care, and you matter to them. I really hope you try and speak up more. As for how you feel about your friend, I kind of understand how you feel - we’re human and it’s very easy to feel tossed aside when someone we perceive as better comes into the same space. I hope you’ll be able to get over these feelings and feel better about yourself. Because you’re amazing and you’re worth it and you matter *hugs you tightly* <3
