Hi😊. I just started making my own content on my blog and was wondering if you could help me out with any tips on how to develop my own style when it comes to my works or where to get some inspiration for my writings. I’m asking you because I really like your works and you seem like you would give some good advice on this subject. Thanks😊
Do people really give advice on how to develop a style or find inspiration? It seems like those are the two things that are so completely inherent to who you are as a writer and dependent on your individuality that advice would be somewhat pointless. My advice would be to just write whatever comes into your head and see where that takes you.
Inspiration is different for every person and for every story. I don’t pretend to be anything more than a smut writer. Most of my inspiration comes from sexual desire and a sudden need to see some idea manifest itself on my computer screen. SPOILER ALERTS!!! Some examples from my writing are: Worth the Wait was inspired by a desire to show premature ejaculation in a story. Nursemaid was inspired by this GIF of Jimin where he looked like he was in a state of ecstasy and I just suddenly thought – “He needs to get a handjob.” Unexpected was inspired by my perverse interest in sloppy seconds and the lack of stories that explored that particular kink. Conditioned was inspired by the random desire to make Taehyung jerk off in public under orders from a more dominant woman. None of these are high minded or complicated. It’s all pretty base. But then I take that idea and start thinking, “How can I put these into a context that seems feasible and real?”
Using Conditioned as an example, I had to figure out how to make the fantasy of Tae jerking off in public seem not entirely insane. So then I toy with different ideas. Where is he? Who is he with? How did he get there? Why is he willing to perform this act? What is he feeling? Why is he feeling this way? So I come up with the idea of Tae meeting up with his teenage crush and he is instantly reminded of the horny teenager with no sexual outlet he used to be and now he wants to fulfill his past desires. So then I think of how I can get him in a position to meet this former crush – thus the blind date scenario – and I just start writing. While I’m writing, the story starts to unfold. I know a lot of people have everything planned out ahead of time. I do not. I have a rough idea of where I’m starting and where I think I’m headed, but everything in between just unfolds organically. In this case, the idea of having the OC hooking up with Jimin was a spontaneous decision that I made to force Tae to work harder at gaining her attention and then I used that as a guide for the rest of the chapter. I was only planning on having a couple paragraphs showing the OC’s and Tae’s backstory as teens, but once I started, I just kept going, so it was much more detailed than I ever intended. I wasn’t even sure how I was going to get the two of them alone together as I was writing, but I’ve learned to just keep writing and look for the opportunities as they arise – so eventually it made sense that the OC might need to excuse herself to go to the bathroom and that was the opening for Tae to make a move.
The subsequent chapters have all been an outgrowth from that original chapter. I start thinking, “What happens next? How does everyone feel about what happened in Chapter 1?” And then I keep going. As I write the following chapters, I start to get a sense of where the longer term plot is headed. I was writing chapter 3 before I had any idea of where I planned on taking the overarching plot. So, as of right now, I have a rough idea of what the ending should be, but I have no clue how I’m going to get there. I’m more character driven than plot driven, so I just trust that it will all work out in the end if I stay true to my characters and keep writing.
All my stories follow a similar path from inspiration to creation. I’m not saying that’s the way you should do it because everyone is very different in their approach and what they are comfortable with. I’ve tried mapping out detailed plot summaries and profiles in advance, but I still end up going off the rails and ending up with a story that I never expected to write. Maybe you are the more organized type. Maybe you have well thought out ideas and whole plot lines you want to express. Do what feels natural to you. The most important thing is to just get started. You will refine the rest over time.

When you begin to feel negative feelings bubbling up to the surface, be mindful of them, for they will not change anything but your own thoughts and wellbeing. Ask yourself; are they worth the extra energy? Do you even deserve to feel such negative emotions? No, you don’t. So try not to let them drag you backwards.
*writing* Oh wow, they are going to love this. This is by far my best work!
*witty lines* *perfect love making* *fluffy enough to kill us all* *a dash of angst, a smidgen of hurt/comfort*

No one's going to read this piece of crap anyway, I literally wrote it on a scrap of 1 ply toilet paper with a broken yellow crayon.

Protip: Don’t tag an artist’s work with backhanded compliments. “I dislike/hate X but I like the art/etc.” is a backhanded compliment. The artist drew X because they like X. So to see people reblog their work of X saying they hate X is annoying and unwanted.
this is going to be worded very harshly, but i feel like the harshness is sort of justified here: there is absolutely no good reason for keeping a high-profile exotic animal as a pet. none. most people purchase mynahs, servals, possums, hornbills, crocodiles, etc because they use them as an extension of their own identity, to seem quirky or cool or to show their status. that’s cruel. not only is it cruel to the animal itself, but it does nothing but add money (directly or indirectly) to the ethically unsound business that is the exotic pet trade.
if you want a small mammal that is active, curious, and affectionate, then get a cat. they actually do well in captivity. if you don’t want a cat because “they’re too boring,” then you shouldn’t even own an animal. there you go.
