I have a book that I am supposed to annotate, and I was wondering whether you would recommend writing in the actual book or using Post-It notes (it's my own book)? I used the Post-It note method before with a library book and I find that the sticky notes cover everything and it somewhat bothers me, should I write in the book?

Hi! I would probably still recommend post-it notes but maybe with a few changes to how you did it from before. The reason I say this is because you can create a colour code (for instance, on new characters, locations, key events, etc) and have them easily accessible and noticeable. If you are writing inside, you’ll find it difficult to quickly search for a point since they’re hidden. However, if before you were writing lots of information on big post-it notes, I can see why it would cover things and annoy you. Instead purchase page flags - preferably ones you can write on, like this. Then create a document with a corresponding table on your laptop. You can then place a page flag for a particular point, write #1 on it, then put the information which you would have written straight into the table. I’d include columns like page number, quote, technique, explanation. Add in anything thing else that you should be covering! This way you can expand much more without compromising space in the book and you aren’t writing in it! I did a similar (ish) thing to this when I annotated a novel but I wish I’d thought of this before - it would have saved me so much time and energy! Let me know if you think this is a good idea and what you decide to do xx

What'cha readin'? || Jack Maynard Imagine

— Y/N’s POV —

Invested, completely invested in this story.

I shouldn’t be, it might be seen as weird but once I’d done one page for a video I needed more. More suspense, more romance… More of everything it included.

This story - or as its more commonly known, FanFiction - is just too good to put down. I can’t tell Jack, it’s about him so that would just be awkward, I mean reading a fanfic about my boyfriend? What the hell would he say?.

As I’m sat, reading away at the pages that bring butterfly’s to my stomach, I hear feet padding through the bedroom and into where I’m sat. My queue to lock my phone.

“Mornin babe” Jack says, landing with an ‘umph’ on the couch next to me, then resting his head on my lap and closing his eyes as the sun burns through the blinds and into his eyes, causing his sleepiness to be abolished.

“Morning!” I say, acting as cool as I can to cover up my dirty little secret.

We talk for a while, then get breakfast and again it comes time for him to go to meetings. More time to read.

Don’t get me wrong, when he was at meetings I missed him more than anything I really did, his strong arms around me, his breath against my neck, but it was also nice to read about it.

— Few Hours Later —

Two more pages and I’ve finished it. Completely. I’ve read over 30 pages since Jack left at 12:30 and it’s now 2:30 in the afternoon and I’ve almost completed the story.

It’s weird how your mind gets so worked into these things. The addiction, the tension. It drags you back in, makes you want more. The thought of what happens next, why what happened happened, you want more.

You need more.

Just as I’m invested in the last page, a few more paragraphs and it’s over I hear it. His voice. Directly over my shoulder.

“What'cha readin’?” He says, in a calm tone as usual, but still very curious. Home early, typical the one time I just happen to be doing something I didn’t want him to know about. Great.

“Nothing, just the news.” I say, immediately locking my phone and stuttering over my words slightly.

“Well, Mrs. Tomato, clearly it’s not the news.” He mentions, making a reference to the colour of my face.

Being easily embarrassed never helped In these situations. At all.

He grabs my phones, and Jack being Jack knows the password and is also a lot taller than me so he unlocks it and holds it above my reach.

After many, many failed attempts at getting it back, I retreat from my spot on my tiptoes and step back, hanging my head in shame.

“Fanfiction eh? Never really took you for a fan Y/N!” He says in between giggles after he comes down from his fit of laughter.

“Look, I just started reading it for a video and realised it was interesting and wanted to see if they knew you like i do!” I say, quickly grabbing the phone out of his hands while he’s distracted just for a moment.

“Babe, it’s fine stop getting so embarrassed it’s cool. I get why your interested.” He says softly as he comes closer to my face and lifts my chin up with his fingers.

“Yeah I know, it’s just weird your boyfriend finding out that your reading a fanfiction about him.” I say bluntly as I plop back down on the sofa.

“Heeeeey, come on. It’s nothing.” He says, sitting next to me and putting an arm around my shoulders and pulling me closer.

It’s nothing.

remember when someone deadass gave lauren the yellow books and theres one page where the author missed a lauren and theres her name lost somewhere in those books… i wonder if lauren read those

just letting you guys know that I read fics all in one page and have NEVER had a problem with you guys linking that way, it always corrects it for me, so i think it may have been just that one anon with the issue?

thank you for writing in! it seems like the majority of people don’t have a problem with how we link fics, so we’ll probably keep things as they are :D

Did you know that you can actually write a horror WITHOUT vilifying mentally ill people and perpetuating harmful misinterpretations of mental illness and related disorders? Wild, I know

In the recent “Welcome to the Madness” manga, Yuri references the fact that he bought his WttM outfit while he and Otabek were shopping in Barcelona together. this is a short, fluffy, comic about that time.

I loved the idea, so I prepared a short comic about it!! Please don’t judge  me, I spent the whole Sunday drawing it and neglecting other stuff..ahahaha X_____D)

Anyway I’ll be uploading one page at a time.

Today’s a special day! Today is not only Father’s Day, but Alex and Ariel Hirsch’s birthday! Let’s celebrate by cracking open your copy of Journal 3, prepping your blacklight and invisible ink pens, and jotting down everything here in the special edition so you can have a copy for yourself without resorting to eBay or shady second-hand Craigslist deals!

I was lucky number 02149 to get a copy of the special edition of Journal 3. Well, lucky as in “I could afford to buy it and pre-ordered it back in March the exact day I heard about it going on sale.” Still, I am PSYCHED to share this with everyone! Admittedly I didn’t take photos of every single page – only the ones with black-light effects that were more than ink spatters. Some I had to take [kinda big] pictures of individually, to be able to read the text properly, and others were multi-page spreads that I couldn’t resist capturing in their beautiful glowy glory.

Of course I’ll be captioning them all for you, in case you can’t download/read them. Also, there’s a few secret codes in here! But did you really expect anything less? Also also, this is a 9 page word document (not counting pics), so I’m splitting it up into 3 parts. Especially considering the size of these pictures.
