is it too late to post this

It's a bird...it's a plane... it's a dumbass!!

I have been debating this post for the past few days, but just decided to do it and get it over with. If for no other reason, it will make me feel better, and may help some of you too!

Aside from the current mood that is surrounding Shippers ( and some quite understandably and with good reason…they know who they are and have my unwavering support!), I am trying to figure out why any of us want to continue fanning at all based on all of the horse poop I have been reading lately. The fear and intimidation some have felt is very real, so I am not diminishing that one bit. If anything, I am royally pissed that trolls and scumbots have the ability to do this to anyone, and especially to anyone here. But, that is not what this post is about.

I am truly baffled why people in our part of the community cannot seem to enjoy SC and the reason we came together any longer. Maybe I am a little delusional, but since I am one of the perceived few people who see pictures and tweets and think positive thoughts instead of automatically descending into “Spot the Swiffer mop”, or “I Spy bad roots” ….I truly don’t get it!! SA has been a gold mine as far as I am concerned, but for whatever reason, people are turning it into the worst game of Clue ever invented. As far as I am concerned, the goodies we have seen from them have been quite fun, and it is one of the prime reasons the other side is ramping up the doubt through anon’s and asks. My hat’s off to the folks that answer these ridiculous people, and I won’t do it because I have neither the time, nor the patience for such idiocy. I love those who take them down with the witty responses, and wish more would do just that!

So, if I might offer any suggestions….think about this….next time we get a pic of them hiking, how about enjoying it instead of questioning every thing about it. This last round was crazy…“ is Sam with them, is he planking somewhere else, is he on another peak, did Cait not hike with Sam” is Sam’s dick on the peak??..you see where I am going with this. Based on Cesar’s IG, and the fact that a group went hiking, and Sam’s own post said he was at Table Mountain answered the question for us….so, WHO THE HELL CARED about those other questions??? They went hiking together….WHEEEE!!!

My point is sometimes we need to take our collective heads out of our own asses and enjoy the fanning experience. Instead, we are becoming our own anti’s, and as I have said a zillion times….I will NOT do their work for them. At the end of the day, this is a TV show, and these are two actors, and two people that will probably never be my BFF’S, nor will I exchange Christmas cards with. But, I will be damned before I let anyone decide or prevent me from enjoying what I came here for, and that includes ourselves. I am not a rainbows and unicorns type of person, and compared to the real issues of the world (London, bullying, doxxing..the list is long), this is escapism entertainment at best, and we should treat it as such.

So, find your joy where you can, snark where you need to, and stop waiting for the sky to fall. I for one am sitting on the Lido Deck in the sunshine, lamenting the plight of some of my virtual friends, yet toasting and bragging about how great our ship really is. And ,watching my SA duo work, hang out personally and continue to contribute to the narrative that has been written for three fucking years, and continues to be written to this day. We just need to pay attention. Fake blondes, wannabe BFF’S and wankers need not apply!

SAIL ON SWEET SHIPSTERS!! Love to you all!❤❤❤

the JL twitter posted the aquaman video at 12, the batman one at 3, and the Flash one at 7:30. Now, assuming they’re on the eastern time zone, they should be done for the night. 10-12 would be too late for another one. But maybe they’re on the west coast, making the times 9, 12, and 4. So maybe there could be another one at 7-9 western time, but also it would make more sense to only post three today and post three tomorrow but also we still don’t know if superman will have one and we don’t–

I'm probably too late for the Ask Party, but here goes anyway... Do you plan to continue reviewing Supernatural episodes?

I’m torn. Interest in the show has seemed to have waned, and not very many people viewed my posts for last season. Granted, they were more sporadic. But I also didn’t really care much for where the show has gone in the last few seasons. The writers are like… proudly stuck in a rut? They keep making the same mistakes, over and over, and it’s frustrating. There are so many other shows I want to give time to, so for the moment, I’m not committing to watching more. We’ll see, but probably not. 

I’ve had too many evenings lately that I have eaten my emotions in sweets. Whole king sized chocolate bars, an entire bag of licorice, eaten in shame in my room before I go to sleep with a hurt stomach and low self esteem. I’ve gained back 10lbs in the last month this has been going on. I can see it, I can feel it, it’s in my way at yoga class. I’ve been meaning to post about it, but it’s hard sometimes to say it, here I am fucking up again. I eat so healthy all day, veggies, greens, fruits, then I do this stupid shit. Yesterday was the first day in awhile I didn’t indulge in said insanity, I need to make that the start of me doing better again. I need to deal with my feelings in a healthy way that doesn’t hurt my body and ultimately make me feel worse. I can do this, here we go, day 2….

Hi! Before I start I have to say you're one of the best advice blogs I've found for this kind of thing. I've been noticing lately that my writing is always very dialogue heavy, and that I seem unable to use anything else to drive the story. Do you have any tips for making stories more balanced?

Aww, thank you <3  I’m really not the best because it took me way too long to answer this (thanks executive dysfunction 👍).  Anyway, here goes…

So most people I know have this problem or the opposite – it depends on what you’re more comfortable with.  Personally, I’m heavier on the description and lighter on dialogue, which presents just as many issues.  The reason for this, I think, is because I’m more comfortable with my own voice (author’s voice) than I am with my characters’ voices.  So if you’re experiencing the opposite problem, I’d ask you how comfortable you feel with your author’s voice.  If you don’t really know what your voice is or how it sounds, that could be your problem right there.

But there are other causes, so I’ll give you a diagnostic checklist.  Ask yourself:

  • Is the setting weaker than the plot and characters?  Many dialogue-heavy stories become that way because the setting is inessential to the story – that’s why most fanfiction is mainly dialogue.  The ideal setting for your story is interactive – even if it’s character-centric or takes place in a dull apartment in the city.  Find a way to include your characters’ surroundings/community in the story.  Otherwise, your story is missing one part of the Holy Trinity (plot, characters, and setting).  And that’s just tragic!
  • Are you in the wrong POV or tense?  A point-of-view that’s too distant from the characters thoughts/feelings/sensations (e.g. Third-Person Omniscient) can trip you up if it doesn’t suit you.  A POV that’s too close to the action (e.g. First-Person) can create an urgency that doesn’t allow time for description.  This effect can also be caused by present-tense stories.  Overall, just examine your POV-tense combo and make sure it’s not holding you back.
  • Could it be a pacing problem?  When a story reaches a climactic moment – especially with action sequences, arguments, flashbacks, etc. – authors tend to lean on auditory storytelling.  Stories seem to move faster when you cut out all the senses except what the character hears.  This is a good tool in moderation; but if you find yourself constantly in this state, your story may be moving too quickly.  On the other hand: if your dialogue is largely used for character development or humor, and not for moving the story forward, your plot is going too slowly.  In this case, consider dropping a subplot or just moving more aggressively.
  • Are your characters doing or just talking about doing?  One of the most agonizing mistakes a writer can make is creating characters who can’t put their money where their mouth is.  They talk about loving the Dream Girl or fighting the Big Bad Villain or Changing Their Life(!) but they wait fifteen chapters just to take the first step.  So make sure your characters are active – that they’re the ones driving the plot forward and not vice-versa.
  • Do you have “stick-figure characters”?  So your plot can be paced well, and your characters can be active, and the setting can be great, but ultimately, there are still going to be dialogue scenes.  Since these scenes are where you’re most comfortable operating, start there.  Keep your characters alive.  That means that when they’re exchanging puns or fighting over the last crepe, they shouldn’t just be doing that.  Use body language.  Have Jacob nervously tap his foot and stare at the salt shaker while he tries to come up with a pun, all the while feeling his crush staring at him impatiently.  Let Erika grab Tori by the wrist and try to elbow her back away from the crepe, because she really wants the crepe.  Conversations may be had on couches in real life, but in fiction, it’s always better to have a discussion on a rolling log.

That’s all I can think of right now!  If you have any more questions, be sure to send them in!  Happy writing :)


If you need advice on general writing or fanfiction, you should maybe ask me!

I haven’t posted any selfies in about 10 years so here have an outfit from the other month that I liked (don’t reblog pls!!). But yeah, life is too short to not match your sunglasses to your dress

(in which it’s been a pretty good week and I’m sort of on top of things, so prayer circle I actually get some Chisolm’s 7 writing done this weekend because oh my lord I’ve been unproductive after work lately haha)

I didn’t forget to post the pics before the prom, I was just running too late to take decent pics, so I took them as soon as I came home. My makeup isn’t visible at all, but you get an idea of the colors. I had a great time and all the preparation did pay off.

I was tagged by the cutie @dammitcat on the drop your weapon and selfie or something. Sorry for the late post, i’m too busy lately (you can hear me crying inside) 
So i just got home and took the selfie. 

I will tag… @poetofthecity @whatwouldjessedo @thisprostate @kamuigr 
@oldman-logan @spacebabyblues @macioxx and @hauntinflauntin 
Oh! and @caelvm133 too! 

Sorry if you don’t like to get tagged in these ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

hello lovelies, just wanted to say that even though I haven’t been posting too often lately, I’m still alive~ I’ve had quite a lot to deal with + I had to delete the tumblr app from my phone (too little space…. such tragedy) BUT I’m still here and my love for hmc is still growing strong! :D

I’m going to post another chapter of if this is hell tonight, unless my after shopping wine with mom gets too late

And boy is it a Chapter 👀
