Leilei, you remember the old Mcdo PH commercial where the song "Huling El Bimbo" played? The childhood friends and stuff? Now, imagine THAT scene with BakuDekuShinsou/BakuTodoDeku. (Tas yung bago, yung Tuloy pa Rin? Ansakit juice colored)
Y’know @serikuobrunch I was living a perfectly happy life without knowing that commercial, then I searched for it in youtube and I gotta say, why you do dis to me ( ´•̥̥̥ω•̥̥̥` ) everybody join me
If anyone is ever feeling lonely and wants to spend some quality time with Amy Poehler, or if you’re just in the mood to have some sunshine in your life, here is a (hopefully) helpful list of clips, interviews, and bits and bobs from YouTube.
The date beside each video is when it was published onto YouTube, not necessarily when it took place. There’s no way this list can include every video clip of Amy ever, but hopefully it is an awesome collection (e.g. I didn’t include all of her SNL skits because the list would go on forever). Feel free to let know if any of the links aren’t working/don’t match up and I will fix it. Enjoy ~
Problem #1: Can’t write past the first page, or can’t write the first scene.
Solution: Don’t start your novel by the beginning of the story, but a few scenes before the beginning. Later on, you’ll remove those scenes, so you are free to write crap. Your goal is to write, just write.
Problem #2: Not having a story for a novel, not enough ideas, or lack of elements.
Solution: Borrow a range of ideas from movies, games, series, gifs, books, songs, music videos, commercials, even Youtube channels. Merge them together to fit your genre and go for it.
Problem #3: Too many story ideas for a novel, too many ideas syndrome, or unable to choose between two plots or characters.
Solution: Score your options from 0 to 5 in the following categories: how much would you like to read it, how much would you like to write it and how much are you ready to write it. Pick ideas with a higher score.
Problem #4: Editing as you write, or perfectionism.
Solution: Trying to change your editing instinct takes a lot more effort than the actual editing. If you are a perfectionist, if you can’t fool yourself into not editing as you write, just let go. Accept yourself the way you are and edit as you go.
Problem #5: Procrastination.
Solution: Turn off your wi-fi. But, if you keep turning it back on, just set aside your computer and write the novel by hand. Writing longhand boosts creativity.
Problem #6: Can’t think of a plot, plot is not interesting enough, or nothing is happening in my book.
Solution: Explain your story to an imaginary friend, to a muse, or to your spirit animal. Talk to them, out loud or into your mind, it doesn’t matter. Ask questions, hear what they have to say. The more you talk, the more you’ll understand what the story is all about.
Problem #7: Receiving hate, or a bad review
Solution: Don’t read reviews. It’s that simple. Readers are allowed to express themselves. Some will love your style, some won’t. Write for yourself, because that’s your only and best tool.
Problem #8: Can’t find my genre, can’t decide on a subgenre, or can’t find my niche.
Solution: Just answer these questions: When you visit a bookstore or an ebook website, which section do you check first? Which type of book would you love to find? What kind of book cover or synopsis would you pay a lot of money for? The answer will show you the way.
