this has been in my drafts for like 3 months so i'm just gonna post it

anonymous asked:

Hi! I was wondering if you could give me some tips on outlining a fic? I have my character backgrounds down to a t, and I've been working on world building, but I've still been having trouble getting my ideas organized in a story format. Yours are always so well written and flow so nicely, I was hoping you had some advice! Thank you! 💕 (PS your newest fic is amazing and I can't wait for more!!!)

God I have been putting off answering this one too long because I Take Outlines So Seriously. In the last week I’ve probably written 30K words, and only about 7K was fic. The rest was the outline rough draft and then the outline final.


So I have literally a Process I use. My larger fics literally have a pre-production period that I have to work through before they are ready to be written.

⚔ tinyxiumins’ 1st follow forever 

since this is my first follow forever and i have always thought that this things are supposed to be special (AND ALSO BECAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT THAT ONE DAY I WOULD BE DOING ONE), i’m going to tell you my story so you’ll understand why you are special to me. don’t worry i’ll keep it short.

I apologize in advance for any grammar error you may encounter.  i don’t know how many of you will actually read it but i really hope you do. ok here we go…

i made this tumblr on january 2011 and i was a ‘regular’ blog meaning no kpop in my life yet (if you go to the core of this blog you’ll find a lot of cats and pizza posts, don’t ask me why, i’m still ashamed), but that change in july 2011 (around the time i started college) when i saw f(x)’s hot summer (men that’s a catchy song).
i was in denial for almost a year, like i would see a lot of kpop videos regularly (cause since i had just started college i had a lot of 'free’ time) but i would keep telling myself 'this is just the type of music you enjoy for a while not the kind you put on your ipod’ I WAS SO WRONG.
i started following kpop blogs around july-september 2012 but just that, i’d never reblog or liked anything (sorry about that), i liked just having them there… seeing them.
i started giving in on august 3rd 2012 when i downloaded my first kpop song snsd’s 소원을 말해봐 (Genie). the second sign of weakness was shown on december 9th 2012 when i reblog my first kpop related post, this sooyoung photoset.
a year of casual reblog passed, and yet i would still be in denial of the fact that kpop was all i knew and all i cared. by september 2013 all my reblogs were kpop related, i had already unfollowed almost all the 'normal’ blogs i used to follow, that’s when i decided to become a full active kpop blog (i mean i already was but you know how it is). i kept my original url (wilburth) for a long time, but you know i need to changed it to really feel that new start.
so here we are now, i changed to tinyxiumins around may-june of this year, i have +450 kpop song on my ipod, i follow 105 kpop blogs and i couldn’t be happier really. 

['i’ll keep it short’ I’M SO FULL OF SH*T]

ok so to sum up i’m doing this ff because i’ve been here for a 3 years, i followed some of you over two years ago, some a year ago and some just last month, but every one of you has made me happy with everything you post. and also because i’ve gained a SH*T LOAD of followers since i became active and i’m really REALLY thankful for that.

✐   ok so what you’re here for, the ff :)

i know is not there (that’s why i’m telling you this here) but the purpose of that long ass message at the beginning was to tell you that kpop and you people help me go through my first year of college, being alone in a new city is not easy and kpop and tumblr became my scape so i’m really thankful (i’ve said it a thousand times but i really am)
