work on your lyrics

unconventional study tips

- buy yourself new stationery: i get so excited about using new pens that i don’t mind writing that essay i’ve been putting off for days

- use a playlist as a study timer: have a selection of instrumentals and songs with lyrics. take a break everytime a song with lyrics comes on and work during the instrumentals

- make your study space smell fresh: mint and lemon tend to be good options

- write down how much time you spend studying for a test and then the grade you got: then you can figure out how time you really need to spend to get a good grade. this will help you use your time more effectively

- spend your study breaks showering or exercising for about 30 mins: then come back fresh and quickly review what you have learned. this will help the information sink in

- don’t always study in comfy clothes or pyjamas: do your hair or makeup if you want too. this will put you in ‘get shit done’ mode

- record yourself explaining topics you’ve just studied: explaining/teaching topics helps you learn so much better, and you also have a little video to review before tests

All Too Well (M) | Pt. 1

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8 | Part 9 | Part 10 | Epilogue

Summary: You and Yoongi shared a loving relationship with one another until you both agreed to end things and pursue your separate careers. But two years later, Yoongi is a member of the ever growing Bangtan Boys, and you are a new makeup artist for their upcoming tour.
Pairing: Yoongi | Reader
Genre: Fluff/Angst/Smut; Idol & Makeup Artist AU
Word Count: 6,061
Author’s Note: I always wanted to try my hand on a Yoongi chapter story, and then I saw this prompt on tumblr and decided to go with it. I also want to note up ahead that I’m not super familiar with how the recruiting process for Kpop groups go and my knowledge only extends to really quick skims of articles just to get the basis. Regardless, I hope I can get to more parts, so let me know what you think.

also idk if this should be considered a prologue or a part 1 but oh well im just leaving it as part 1

.

You suppose that it all starts and ends with a letter.

Dear Mr. Min Yoongi,” Your boyfriend reads across the kitchen counter, fingers curling tightly around the paper in his hands, eyes blown wide with a gaze depicting such rare intensity that you’ve actually stopped fixing your morning coffee just to catch a sight of his expression. You can’t entirely place the feeling weighing itself into your stomach, so you settle with staring at him and trying to keep your own facial features as neutral as possible. “We are pleased to inform you that you have passed the final audition at our label and therefore are officially recruited into our newest group Bangtan Boys. You are going to be one of seven other boys joining our label as trainees and we are excited to finally bring everyone together to prepare for debut. Although training won’t officially start until next week, we ask that you come to the studio tomorrow morning to meet the other members as well as be prepped on our expectations and scheduling. We wish to congratulate you on your hard work and look forward to getting to know you more in the coming years. Sincerely, Big Hit Studios.”

When Yoongi doesn’t react immediately to the positive news, you flicker your gaze up to study him. His eyes, once again, are scanning the paper, quicker and quicker with each line as if he didn’t read it or hear it correctly the first time around. His eyes have grown to the size of saucers at this point, and you would have thought him to be a statue had it not been for the rather loud inhales and exhales coming from the boy. The sight itself would have been rather comical had it not been for the context behind the stare.

So you try for a gentle smile, leaning a little on the counter to try and further gauge his expression. “Yoongi?” You inquire softly, reaching a hand across the space to run your hand along his shoulder blade. “Baby, are you alright?”

Yoongi blinks, snapping himself out of his trance as he shifts his gaze from the letter to you, back to the letter, and back to you. “I did it?” He whispers, the statement sounding more like a question above anything else and you find your lips curling up into a fond smile in light of Yoongi’s confusion—even though he was the one to read the letter multiple times, running over the words in his own mind repeatedly.

  • oh boi this is my soft smol dirty minded boi
  • like before you even started to date, he’d make your day every single day w/ his adult humor and tbh this is probably one of the reasons you finally fell for him

  • bc like……..he was 500% sure he was never going to feel the same way about someone if you were to reject him…………….ur his best friend man
  • so he told you straight up what the deal was 
  • and if it was any other person you’d think it was kinda hostile how he kinda cornered you and basically stated all the reasons why he loves you and gave you a choice whether to love him back or not and it’s like ???

  • he’s dead set on making you learn exo’s routines and honestly it’s so amusing
  • mostly bc you’re always complimenting him on his dancing skills 
  • “Aw baby you were dancing so great, you should join the dance line and leave all the singing to minnie”

  • and kiss your forehead all softly and probably makes you blush hella 
  • ohmygod I’m soft for him 
  • sometimes you’ll just be cuddled into his side as he plays w/ your hair and working on writing lyrics at the same time

  • but now he’s screaming as he usually does bc you scared him lmao
  • he whines cutely in your ear a lot bc he knows it amuses you

Tips for Fighting Writer’s Block.
  1. When you struggle with finding your voice or a source of inspiration, reading can help motivate you to write. Go for your comfort read or perhaps a new book you’ve been wanting to read but haven’t gotten around to. 
  2. Watching movies can give you the same inspiration as reading does. The dialogue and scenery could spark some ideas for you or challenge yourself to mentally write the scene.
  3. Take on some writing prompts. Sometimes we just need a helping hand. Write World provides writers with all kinds of different ways to get the creative juices flowing from sentence prompts, picture prompts, and music prompts.
  4. Listen to a playlist that isn’t your own. If you can’t work with lyrical music or music at all, search for a nature playlist, one with the natural sounds of the world like rain falling or waves splashing. You can listen to our playlists here.
  5. Draw something. Doodle things at random or draw out a character you’ve always had in mind or even a new one. It doesn’t matter if you’re good but it’s always best to be inspiring. 
  6. Pamper yourself. Self care is always important it’s the best way to really give yourself a break. Do your nails, take a shower, take a nap, practice some yoga, do your hair, go for a jog.
  7. Clean your room. Change your linens, dust the corners, rearrange some furniture to give yourself the feeling of a brand new space.
  8. Clean your work space. If you’re like me, you find it hard to be productive in a messy work space. Spend a few minutes organizing your desk and I guarantee you’ll feel a bit better about tackling your writer’s block. Arrange your notebooks, pens, maybe even add a special touch like a small vase of handpicked flowers or a candle for some aroma therapy as you write.
  9. Change your environment. Visit the local coffee shop or a quiet park for a change of scenery when you write.
  10. Keep a small notebook with you to help you think up character profiles and jot your ideas down at random. 
  11. Play video games. Take your mind off writing and play a video game with a fantastic story and wonderful characters. This can help inspire you to create your own.
  12. Bounce ideas with a writer friend. Nothing is better than sitting down with someone who shares the same interest as you and being able to share ideas with them and provide constructive and beneficial feedback.
  13. Write. Simply write. Write the first thing that comes to mind and allow yourself to be a little messy. Don’t worry about your grammar or punctuation, remember you can always revise later. Continue writing for a half hour before allowing yourself to stop and revise. Set a goal of maybe 250 or 500 words (1,000 words if you’re really feeling committed) and write until you’ve reached that goal, take a break, and then continue writing. Sometimes setting a deadline for ourselves can be extremely helpful.
Monsta X reacting to their s/o getting more affectionate when sleepy

Shownu🐻:

  • The way you sleep has always amused him because he thought you were cute when you slept
  • However today was a little different, you fell asleep clinging to him as if you were a koala bear
  • He found it endearing how you clinged to him as if he was protecting you in your sleep
  • Ever since the two of you have started dating you made it apparent that he was your teddy bear
  • Shownu didn’t mind this since he’s used to I.m biting him and Minhyuk hugging him so you being affectionate was endearing to him
  • You two were watching a movie and when he looked down he saw you fast asleep clinging to him
  • He paused the movie and carried you back to your room and tried to tuck you in
  • However this was more difficult than he thought it was be, you weren’t letting go of him and he had no issue with you just hugging onto him
  • In the morning you woke up before him and realized that you fell asleep on him
  • You felt bad because he wasn’t able to finish the movie but at the same time you were glad you woke up by his side
  • Shortly after he woke up and saw you smiling as you watch him sleep and you quickly covered your face since this could come off creepy
  • But Shownu just giggled and pulled you towards his chest for a hug
  • and when you apologized for sleeping on him he just smiled at you

Well..I wanted to finish this in time for @milasaraweek but I failed miserably with my time schedule XD 

The lyrics are from a cheeky electropop song [Jenny by Studio Killers] that I heard once by chance but..you know how that kind of songs works…they get stuck in your head for ages and sometimes the lyrics are just on point and perfect for your favourite yuri YOI couple :P 

I hope you will like it…this ship needs more love! <3  

Uh and by the way I love to call this ship Salami, I know it’s wrong as it’s Sara and not Sala, but it’s funnier :P

15 Art Ideas For When You Feel Stuck~
  1. Create an emotion through art (draw sadness, paint excitement)
  2. Portray your inner thoughts through a piece
  3. Illustrate your best friend in your favorite media
  4. Draw something that challenges you, even if you think it will not turn out great
  5. Make a mess
  6. Work with your favorite quote
  7. Work with your favorite song lyrics
  8. Recreate an old piece
  9. Do a study on another artist
  10. Display your biggest fears through your art
  11. Make a collage
  12. Draw your favorite style of architecture
  13. Paint with your hands
  14. Sketch the first plant you find outside
  15. Draw yourself 

I don’t think a lot of people understand the effort that goes into songwriting. There’s lyricism, putting those lyrics to a melody, putting that melody in a score, giving that score extra sound effects and beats at just the right moment for the effect you want, and all of those processes are time consuming and emotionally draining. You’ll spend hours combing through hundreds of songs you’ve written trashing 90% of your work just in the lyrical phase even if it’s good bc it’s not good enough and you’ll spend days making sure that melody is catchy but not annoying, conveys the emotions you’re trying to express, if you plan on singing it yourself you’ll make sure it’s in your range and compliments your voice, is it unique enough without being weird? Is it strong? Should it be strong? Could it be better? How can you make it better? Is this the best it can be or should I spend a couple more days working on it? And after that you have to write accompaniment. What instrument should you put it on? Can you add more instruments? Do you know anyone who can play some of these instruments while you perform/record/whatever you’re doing with it bc you can only play one thing at a time. What chords go with the melody? How can you make those chords more interesting to listen to? Is this really the best I can do? Could it use backup vocals? Who would back me up? Is that too much? Does it still convey the emotion you were going for? There’s a ton to think about. It’s an incredibly time consuming process and sometimes after going through all of it you still end up scrapping it. You don’t even know if any of your work will be seen. Ever. You then work insanely hard to find someone to record it for you (or save up money for your own equipment and find yourself a room and fix up that room to suit your needs, which also costs time and money) and hope and pray people like it if you ever get it out into the public eye. Bc after all the work you went through you still can’t make people listen you still can’t make people like it. Songwriters deserve more respect than being written off as lazy, privileged people who get payed way more than they deserve.

boyfriend! Wonwoo

Anon requested: “Can you do boyfriend wonwoo plz?”

  • okay so, you and Wonwoo met at a book store one day
  • it was pretty chill, you were looking for a book that a friend recommended
  • he was there flipping through some other book
  • and you were struggling to reach the book on the shelf
  • and he casually gets it down for you, noticing you struggle
  • but he reads the title
  • at first you thought he looked a bit cold, but his face broke out into the warmest smile you’ve ever seen
  • “this is a really good book!” he says quietly turning to you
  • and you’re kind of like ‘!!!’
  • because he’s really cute
  • and you kind of just blush and take the book from him
  • and he’s just as flustered now
  • because he thinks you’re beautiful
  • you’re both too shy to say much else
  • so you say “thank you” feeling your cheeks get warm
  • and he, looking everywhere but you, mutters “you’re welcome”
  • and you both go your separate ways
  • he doesn’t believe in love at first sight, and neither did you
  • but you guys sure as hell wanted to know each other
  • you go to the book store everyday to just read
  • and you see Wonwoo there often too
  • for a couple of weeks you both just say hi and occasionally talk about the latest book you’ve read
  • and after a month of just talking to him about books
  • he asks if you want to get coffee with him
  • at this point you don’t know how to breathe
  • you say something along the lines of “sure okay”
  • and the rest is history
  • he was really quiet and shy when first meeting you
  • but the book talks and seeing you everyday in the book store
  • that was it for him
  • he started liking you, and you started liking him
  • you both like walking in this park by his dorm
  • watching little kids run past
  • it’s so peaceful and beautiful
  • and your arms brush each other as you walk
  • so he just takes your hand
  • movie nights are terrifying
  • since he likes horror movies
  • you always have a firm grasp on his arm for dear life through the whole thing
  • and every five minutes or so he looks over to make sure you’re okay
  • he laughs whenever he does that though
  • bc you’re so damn cute
  • on days where he has breaks
  • you both lie out a picnic blanket under the shade of a tree
  • he sits and reads with you laying on his stomach reading your own book
  • and like you both love reading
  • but damn, he thinks you’re so pretty and it’s hella distracting
  • so he just ends up staring at you with your eyes tracing each word
  • a small smile on his face as he plays with your hair
  • until you finally look up from your book and he quickly looks away
  • “what are you doing?”
  • “nothing, just, you look beautiful when you were reading so…”
  • you both lightly laugh
  • walking back to the dorm you spot a puppy
  • and Wonwoo hides behind you, the guy is scared of dogs
  • you laugh omg he’s too cute
  • late nights playing video games
  • you’re both not too competitive and he lets you win
  • though if you ever ask, he’ll deny it
  • “why would I let you win? I accidentally pressed the wrong button is all…”
  • when you watch “Miracle in Cell No. 7” together, he cries more than you
  • so you’re both staring at the tv with tears down your faces and a tissue box in between you
  • he always leaves a sweatshirt or jersey around, purposely or not
  • and you put your arms through the sleeves, playing with how big it is on you
  • you’re often texting each other for the most random reasons when you’re not together
  • late night phone conversations about love, life, and fate
  • “like what if I didn’t have a break that day?”
  • “what if some other person had gotten that book for you?” 
  • you don’t really know how to answer
  • “I mean, I’d assume we would have still met eventually” he continues
  • your heart melts with his words
  • skinship is a bit shy at first
  • the only thing that really happened is holding hands on the couch or your head leaning on his shoulder
  • and the first time in front of the members, it was basically nonexistent
  • now you both have become more comfortable and bolder
  • his arms wrap around you in greeting
  • you turn your head around and he leans down for a kiss
  • after not seeing him for a while, you’ll jump on him wrapping yourself around him
  • while he’s working on lyrics, you’ll come place your head on his shoulder saying something like “i made dinner”
  • when you guys are cuddling, your head is on his chest and legs touching
  • you’ll read books together, his arms wrapping around you to turn the page
  • sweater paw twins
  • waiting to read books together always
  • sheltering you from mingyu who likes to tease wonwoo by stealing you from him
  • you deciding to wear his circle glasses all the time
  • fights barely ever occur because you guys like to talk everything out calmly
  • lazy days when there’s time
  • dates consist of, reading a book, watching the movie, complaining how the movie didn’t live up to the book, LOTS of cuddles and food
  • seventeen trying to get a reaction out of wonwoo 24/7 lmao 
  • “yahhhh y/n” hoshi swinging his arm around you, seventeen watching you and wonwoo like hawks
  • your just like “hello soonyoung” and take your hand and slowly move his arm
  • wonwoo just looks at you and cracks up

Music Series: Wild Thoughts (cover by Harry Styles)**

Thanks for the request! This is a hard one…pun intended…

Because I LOVE Harry’s cover of it more than the original, I’m basing this imagine from it, but besides the first two lines of each verse…it’s all the same lyrics.

Oh, Spirits of Creative Writing…work your magic on this imagine…and if you speak to the Spirit of Dream Makers, please remind them where to send my Harry clone, because I am not cool enough for the real Harry, please and thank you.

This is “Wild Thoughts” by Harry Styles (DJ Khaled/Rhianna/Bryson Tiller cover), which unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control, is not available on Spotify. Here is a LINK to the audio on Youtube. You’re welcome.

First imagine in a couple of weeks and it’s smut…that’s what happens, I guess.

first and last lines of every Belle and Sebastian studio album from 1996 to 2015 (because we’d all rather drag ourselves across the dance floor)
~ comments, suggestions, or corrections more than welcome ~

So I have an obsession with Captain America as Hamilton and Iron Man as Burr and the lyrics to “Your Obedient Servant” work so well with their characters that I had to make a Cap/Ham crossover wallpaper for my first one so yayyyy Hamilton/Marvel stuff!
