when ur both the tattooed cousin and the gay cousin

hello hi! i’ve recently hit 50k which is.. wow.. in all my years of being on tumblr and changing blogs and fandoms i never dared to imagine that sjdfjfjsjsnjd it’s kind of an intimidating number?? i should probably tone it down with oversharing personal facts about me lmao. anyways thank you so much to everyone who follows me, sends me asks and reblogs my posts! it means so much to me!! it’s probably a kind of sad thing to admit but after everything this blog has become a big part of my life so yeah… your support means a lot to me and motivates me. i really hope this blog can brighten up someone’s day just a little bit

i’m not italicizing anyone in my follow forever list because i just can’t bring myself to do that lmao some people i talk to every day, some people i used to talk to, some people i’ve never talked to but we’ve been mutuals for so long that i can’t imagine not following them and some people i followed very recently but i’d like to get to know them. i love all blogs and people behind them:

nanowrimo fanfic edition?

heyyyy ✨

for the last 2-3 years i’ve participated independently in nanowrimo and while i’ve never reached the 50k goal, i have hit a top of 40.7k one year. each year i choose a fanfiction i’ve been aching to work on and i devote myself to it throughout the month.

this year, i was wondering if any other fanfiction writers would be interested in also partaking in a fanfic version of nanowrimo with me! we don’t have to be writing for the same fandoms - we don’t even have to know what fandoms the others are writing for. i would love to have a network of fanfiction writers similarly devoted to writing throughout nanowrimo and boosting the inspiration, confidence, and creativity of other writers.

maybe we could set up a discord? idk. if people are interested reblog/reply/let me know

I know where I'm goin' and I know where I'm from

Lin_Manuel: I promised you a college pic of me in drag as @JLo if this charity @Spotify playlist hit 50K. I keep my promises.

Lin_Manuel: That’s my buddy Julio Pabón behind me as Ja Rule. 2001, so.

MOST IMPORTANTLY:

Go go go. And remember Spotify is donating to the Hispanic Federation fund for every follow, so you’re supporting multiple good causes!

The End and Everything Afterwards: A Goodbye to Intern Emily

Summer is drawing to a close, and it’s time to wish our interns farewell as they move on to share their awesomeness with the rest of the world. Before heading back to college, Emily Ehret, Editorial Intern Extraordinaire, writes in on the blog one last time to share how she handles endings in her writing and her personal life, especially when unexpected challenges come her way:

Us writers and our endings. We often spend so long agonizing over getting them just right. Sometimes, it takes us ages to pin them down. Can we ever really satisfy ourselves with an ending? How do we get it exactly right? How do we know when it’s over?

This summer, though, there were a couple of things I was certain of: I knew the ending of the novel I worked on for Camp in July, and I knew the end date of my internship—August 30th. So I knew exactly how long I had to work on my word count and get the most out of my summer at NaNo HQ. In some fantasy of productivity when I arrived here in June, I was certain I would write that ending before saying an elegant farewell and hopping back on a plane for Chicago.

August 30th is here, just as I always knew it would be. But what I didn’t fully expect was all the accompanying emotions.

i haven’t even touched a word processing software in some long months, at least not seriously…. but what do you guys think, should I try to do NaNoWriMo? I have sort of an outline for That Fic (the placeholder title for it is “And Down Goes The Sky”, so… ADGtS?), and while it would be nice to have someone up my ass motivating me to Do Shit with it, I’m kinda scared that not meeting my goal would only discourage me further…

@valorikei​ opened this tag up to anyone who wants to go for it, so I thought I’d try mine!  I’m also pulling from AO3, cause all my FFnet fics are literally ancient and most of the time I can’t stand to look at them *shivers*.

5. Your proudest fanfic:

I honestly can’t say I have one at the moment.  I love all my work, even if I look at it sometimes and want to whack myself one, like what was I thinking?!  I put in effort into all of them.  Though right now, I’d say the fics I wrote for NaNoWriMo class as my proudest fanfics, because I hit and passed 50k for both of them (they’re not up, and I don’t think they’ll go up).  And that gives me pride in my own writing abilities.  Outside of that, I love all my fanfics.

6. Your longest fanfic:

Mercy, Dost Thou Have a Name?

7. Your 3 fanfics with the most bookmarks:

a.) Mercy, Dost Thou Have a Name?

b.) Whisper in My Ear (RusAme Detective AU)

c.) The Life and Times of Two Werewolf Revolutionaries

8. Your favorite character to write in fanfic:

Alfred is the hardest for me to write in fanfic, but I also love him the most.  He’s just so much fun to write with, his character is so complex, and depending on which AU I’m in, it’s really subjective which personality he prefers to display.  He’s my favorite, definitely.  Though Ivan is equally fascinating to try and write - and writing RusAme is always a fun thing!

9. 3-5 fanfics you love that aren’t already listed:

a.) The Snowflake and the Hockey Player (RusAme, Sports AU)

b.) All of Me (RusAme College AU)

c.) Duty (slight RusAme, America Centric, mpreg)

Bonus Round: Your 3 favorite fanfics not posted yet.

1.) Going Supernova (RusAme Superhero AU)

2.) Treasure (RusAme & Alaska, sequel to Duty)

I tag @colorfulshipseverywhere, @iridulcentdays, @usagi323, and anyone else who wants to do this, cause it was definitely fun!
