i want my hair this red

Writer Tag Game

Tagged by @electricarmchair

1. Are there common settings (fictional or real) that show up in your writing?
Settings? Not in particular. I do write about the sea often, or the forest, but it’s really not intentional! Other than that I don’t think I set the scene very often or speak about the surroundings. Not in my poetry, at least.

2. Do you plan before writing, or go with the flow?
Kind of both. Mostly going with the flow, but I tend to think of great things to write about while like, drying my hair or something. So I’ll make a note about what I want to write about and when the notes get long enough, that’s usually when I write. 

3. If you could be a colour, what colour would you be and why?
Probably red. Not sure why. It is one of my favorite colors (changes from day to day) but I think it’s just fiery and draws attention. It stands out and is an acquired taste. I’d totally be a red flower.

4. Do you often and prefer to write sober? Why or why not?
I honestly have only written under the influence maybe a couple of times. Usually because if I’m drunk, I’m hanging with my BF or watching reality TV. My mind goes a million miles a minute when I drink. So I prefer sober, yes.

5. Do you multitask while writing?
Nope! I know a lot of people do, but I’m actually someone who wants to sit and think only about what I’m writing. I tend to write really quick (my sonnets take a half hour to write start to finish) and just want the piece to be perfect. So no distractions! Distractions lead to me making typos or counting syllables wrong.

6. What genre(s) would you classify your writing under?
Um, I don’t know. I guess I don’t classify them under any genre? I mean, I categorize them based on what type of piece they are. Like if it’s a sonnet or a haiku, not really based on the subject or what’s in the piece itself. I guess I’m mostly a love poet though. I tend to only write about love or anger, really.

7. What do you do more, read or write?
Write. Well… see. I read a lot of tumblr poetry! So in that case I guess I read more, because I hardly write anymore. But I haven’t read an actual book in years, sadly. 

8. What’s your favourite word and why?
Right now it’s “pedantic” because ever since I learned what it meant I use it all the dang time. 

9. Why do you write?
One word: Myself. Well, I guess more accurately, for myself. I know that’s probably one of the most simple and unimaginative answers I could have given to this question. I wish I had some poetic word-and-narrative combination for you because I sort of feel like I took the easy way out for giving such a generic answer, but it’s true nonetheless. I write for me. To vent, to feel, to awaken those feelings, to manage those feelings, to take what I’m feeling and turn it around for myself, to view a situation from the eyes of a writer and a reader as opposed to just in my own head, to think, to share, to encourage openness, to grow, to heal and in those rare cases revel in healing someone else, all while purely enjoying every line I write. I write because I can, because I like it, because it’s me. It’s a part of me. If I didn’t write, I wouldn’t be being me. I write for me.

silverowlreader  asked:

How did you dye your hair? I've been wanting to for months, but I'm worried about damaging it.

I have very long hair and yes it does damage it, but I use a one step dye and don’t bleach my hair, which is way worse for it. I use the L'Oréal hicolor highlights in red! It’s a one step color for natural dark hair colors

anonymous asked:

"Tired." He paused. "But I'm not sure I want to sleep right now." Will yawns, and Nico rubs the skin between his neck and shoulders, trying to loosen the tense muscle. "You're pretty cute when you're affectionate." Will nuzzles into Nico's hair for a moment. "Do you want to do something? Or we can talk? Whichever." He looks at Will's face, eyes still a little red, but he's got a small smile. "I'm not sure. What takes your mind off things?" Will asks. "Just until it completely passes."

“I usually, ah, get up and move around. Most of the time I go to the arena and fight something. It helps me to work through my thoughts when I’m physically exhausted. And sometimes I can pretend that whatever I’m punching is whatever’s bothering me.” Nico looked at the wall behind him, slightly embarrassed at his own coping methods. Was that healthy? Nico had no idea. He hoped Will wouldn’t tell him to stop though, it really did help him. “We can play a game though. That might help take your mind off things, yeah?” Nico asked.

the gods are not dead. when men speak to me like i can’t read, i feel athena awaken somewhere in my bone structure. her mouth spits words i had forgotten i memorized, facts from the deep pockets of libraries. she revels in the way they stutter at the quickness of my tongue, whispers, here’s what it feels to be above the cities. i know demeter for the way i feel in dirt, i catch sunlight in my palms and beg people to be disgusted at girl unhaunted by pretty, my hair a mess and my legs hairy and my body thick. i’ve kissed aphrodite, i’ve met her not in lust only but in the girl who listens like she is tied to your soul. she comes out and we go dancing, unashamed of our sexuality. i have even been her, once or twice, on rare moons where the stars aligned. i know the rage of artemis. i hunt those who hurt my sisters, i slay demons, i run in night with red lips. and i am persephone, always, goddess of the spring, goddess of the pomegranate, of wanting, of riding her own horse to hades, of being two queens. when men take power from me, i hear her whispering. take it back, she says, tongue sweet, ambrosia in the blood stream, take back your city.

the gods are not dead. they live in women. they live in me.

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

Red, brown, black or “gold”?

i want a life full of soft colours, i want to bathe in roses and drink tea mid-afternoon; i want to watch the sunlight illuminate my room through the blinds, i want to be the sun, i want a library the size of the moon and to feel true reciprocated love—i want to love myself. i want red ribbons in my hair and long walks as the sunsets, i want to set a man’s heart on fire, i want to be fire itself. i want the pretty little things that make life fun.

A/n: My heart feels heavy ending the series. I grew so attached to one of the characters (I’m sure you can guess which one by the end), and it makes me sad to end their story here. Thank you for reading it and expressing your thoughts about it, it means a lot to me.

Series: 01|02|03|04|05|Epilogue

Description: The government is in charge of matching everyone up with a partner, the person they believe you are the most compatible with. You get assigned Jungkook, who looks perfect on his profile and even more perfect in person. You are later reminded however, that perfection does not exist, and not everything in life will go as planned.

  Dreams of This

                Taehyung stared into the darkness of his room, his back pressed against the wall as he tried to get some sleep, his thoughts forbidding him from resting. He wanted to drop it and drift off, but you wouldn’t leave his mind, and not in the same way you had occupied it in the days prior. The images of your smile, your laugh, of the way you looked at him, were all replaced now with your look of disappointment, the sadness within your eyes deepening. He knew you thought no one could see, and maybe you were right, maybe no one could, at least anyone besides him.

                ‘I’m mad because you lied.’

               What in the world was he supposed to have done? How could have he have told you? Of course it had occurred to him to mention it, to tell you what had gone on between them, but he couldn’t bring himself to do it. Despite that you wanted to act like Jade didn’t bother you it was so evident that she did, whether you meant to show it or not. He knew he would have to one day but he thought he had more time, and after instructing the guys not to let it slip he was sure you wouldn’t find out from anyone other than him.

He didn’t think Jungkook would bring it up, at least not before he himself got the chance to.

               If she doesn’t like liars, he thought, she shouldn’t get too close to him.

anonymous asked:

Have any advice for accessorizing outfit designs? I feel like i either go too elaborate or too dull and cant seem to find that middle ground

I’m not a huge expert on this and am guilty of oversaturating my characters with unnecessary stuff, but when I actually try to design properly I usually go with first making the silhouette, then adding finer details (like jewelry or filigree or other deets) in places where I want to lead the eyes- like, let’s say the facial or neck area!

I usually make sure the other parts aren’t as detailed as the part I want to emphasize~

e.g. for this illustration (again thank you @aomaoe for lending your spicy boi) I poured My Soul into detailing and using more contrasts/darker shadows on the hair, faces, floral hairclip, lace glove and coat because that’s where I want you to look (if you look again everything else was intentionally left chunky and two-toned).

the ribbons and general flow of the composition lead towards the subjects as well, while the red blooms make sure to nail your eyes towards that part once you’ve locked on!

this one was intentionally made to be a clusterfuck of stuff for that UTAU Aesthetic ™ but I tried to keep the general silhouette and main color blocks intact, so your eyes have places to settle on once it gets sick of all the other details~

same general rule for this one despite the saturation of patterns- mostly black and simpler patterns on the bottom, more light colors and details on top (an exception would probably be  @magebomb‘s Tyr, whose tie leads the eyes towards the pattern on his skirt, and it better did because I Poured My Tears Into That Pattern)
