Anyone else regretting their life choices right now?
Like, why did I choose to watch that suggested youtube clip? And why did I start watching emmerdale full time? And why did I fall in love with Aaron Dingle and Robert Sugden? Why did i get this invested in such a tortured couple? And why did I let myself believe it would all turn out ok?
so apparently someone made a survey of favourite destiel fic authors (that someone being @unforth-ninawaters), and somehow i’m ranked as 5th favourite????!?! thaNK YOU people who put my name down????? my mother is gonna be thrilled (and then ask why i’m not #1)
on another note, i’ve spent the last two days of my life painting my room purple after literally 8 years (and i mean literally, not figuratively, or exaggeratively), trying get my health up enough that i could paint a hecking wall. it. is. done. THE WALLS ARE PURPLE
I AM PLEASED
AND DEAR GOD I AM EXHAUSTED IT’S 3AM everything hurts i’m dying i need to sleep

Hey guys, I’m looking for a few opinions on something r.e. the protagonists of my third book!
I’m currently in the first draft editing stages of my third book. It is a dual narration YA contemporary: one narrator is a Muslim hijabi, and the other is a trans boy. I am white, non-religious, and cis.
I’ve researched so far by watching a load of YouTubers and reading own voices novels (plus the usual google research haha). However, I want to take this further now and talk to some Muslim gals and trans masc peeps.
Would it be okay for me to write a survey? I’d love to get an array of opinions from a number of people, as obviously I know experiences of being Muslim and being trans can differ extremely. I’d include some general questions, nothing too specific or complex, just to invite people to chat to me about their experiences! (Obviously I completely understand no one has the obligation to educate me about anything. This would be entirely voluntary, no pressure, no obligation whatsoever. Only if you want to share some thoughts and experiences!)
I want to make sure I get this right. My book isn’t about being Muslim or being trans, but, they are big parts of my narrators, and so I need to make sure I’m educated.
Lemme know if surveys would be a terrible idea. I’m not sure how else to get lots of different opinions. I don’t want to just start pestering people I don’t know with my white cis questions!!!
(P.S. I am definitely considering hiring sensitivity readers, but my book really is not at the stage of completion right now where it can be read by anyone apart from me/my editor/my agent hahaha)
Some words of clarification, if you will allow me.
The reason I came up with words like “neuronarrative” is because I see a need for such word. It’s that simple.
I see that right now on the Internet “maladaptive daydreaming” has two pretty different meanings, and the phrase is used interchangeably with no explanation in many different communities.
It’s like you have two groups of people. First is people who love drinking alcohol on the weekends or holidays, enjoy it in moderation, like talking about it and creating new cocktail recipes and so on. And second is people who struggle with alcohol addiction, feel like their drinking is out of control and wish they could quit it. And both groups use exactly the same terminology!
As you can guess, it creates a lot of misunderstanding and confusion. You have some people who talk about how much they love their daydreaming and how it helps them in everyday life and who think it is the most wonderful thing in the world, and you have others who haven’t left their house for three days because they couldn’t stop daydreaming or who lost friends because of their daydreaming addiction. Both exist alongside in one community and call their experience maladaptive daydreaming.
I think it’s not fair to either of them. Those who think daydreaming is a positive force in their life need spaces to enthuse about it and share their stories and feel like they are not weird or wrong. Those who think it is a negative force need spaces to complain about it and seek help and discuss their problems and not feel like their issues are diminished. And accurate terminology can help separate them and better articulate their thoughts and explain their experience and reduce the misunderstanding and conflict.
So that’s why I came up with “neuronarrative” to describe unusual and intense daydreaming that isn’t seriously harmful to the person experiencing it, and wrote an article to explain the difference (http://autisticworlds.tumblr.com/post/153905673680/new-terms-and-explanations). I’m not saying you absolutely have to use my word, but I do think we will need separate terminology at some point.
But essentially it’s up to you which words to use. The community is new and diverse. There are no rules. Do what makes you comfortable. It’s your choice. I wanna call my experience neuronarrative. You can make up your own word, or use other words - reclaim them, change their meaning, adapt them for your use.
All I want is less confusion and confrontation and a better community where people’s needs will be met and where they can feel safe and welcomed. But I’m just one person. It’s up to you, every single individual in the community, to choose what to do and create a place that is good for you. And I’ll try my best to help you.

People I know from high school and undergrad are starting to Do Things. A few are C-list celebrities and a couple are getting picked up by like, McSweeney’s and it’s hard to look at them and not feel like I’m somehow stagnant, when I know that I’m doing the best I can.
By any chance
