8 43 52!
totally unrelated to this game but just throwing it out there bc i’m looking at it, your icon always makes me so happy. look at those little hands!!!!! love trash pandas
8. Do you have any writing buddies or critique partners?
Yes!!! I would be absolutely lost without @nickmillerscaulk, she is 100000000% responsible for a song inside the halls of the dark still being a thing tbh. she’s been beta-reading since the beginning and has been a sounding board and shoulder to lean on throughout the whole thing. she’s such an incredible editor, hugely supportive and enthusiastic listener and just like, all around??? amazing????? if for no other reason, that fic will always have a special place in my heart for being the thing we became friends over.
I also spend a lot of time bouncing ideas off of @foxmagpie who has an incredible eye for story and is always super down to let me ramble out places where I get snarled up and weigh in. @bourbon-ontherocks and I literally just made a pact to treat messages as a no holds barred therapy zone while we both work on our promt-a-thon fics for monday. in addition to being the primary recipient of my johnny tuturro themed decent into madness, @medievalraven has also listened to me ramble about/inspired an item or two on my no seriously I am going to write this list (this F themed extravaganza is going to be extremely bonkers) as well as being a wonderfully sympathetic shoulder to cry on when I get discouraged.
Apologies for getting all sappy on main but I love you guys, you’re the best.
43. How do you deal with rejection?
I don’t get rejected, everyone who has ever tried to reject me is dead to me and how could someone dead to me have ever rejected me? Laughable! Ridiculous! Could never happen!
Real talk, my general attitude is that people are gonna do what they’re gonna do and there’s an extremely limited amount of shit I can do about it. I try to give myself time and space to sulk and lick my wounds and then get back to business because like hell I’m going to let someone else’s wrong opinion keep me down. Not everyone is going to like me/what I write and that’s fine, their loss.
That said, if the person doing the rejecting insists on being a dick about it, I plant a seed in my grudge garden and tend to it for the rest of my days.
52. Who do you write for?
Me, 100%. I would be a filthy liar if I tried to say I didn’t care if y’all like what I put out as well, but at the end of the day, I’m writing what I want to write and hoping y’all are down for the ride, not the other way around.
