6. What’s your guilty pleasure as a writer?
i say “write your self insert shit all u want no one is gonna give a shit and if they do its cuz theyre insecure jackasses that found out that ‘mary sues’ are a bad thing two weeks ago and are embarrassed they did the same thing”, but i’m still sort of in that mindset where it’s like… oh no im doin a bad writer thing :(. but i still fuckin try to do it anyway.
specifically, writing like.. slow burn/build oc/canon (or straight up self insert) shit with feelings. like writing a fucking long ass clerks fic where dante is still in love with veronica and u just moved into town and you two become friends and ur slowly falling in love with him but u want him to be happy so u try to set him n veronica up again while pushing ur feelings to the side until u just cant hold them in anymore and it explodes and shit is awkward and then him n veronica REALLY dont work out second time around so u two are just friends but slowly it becomes something else and randal is kinda jealous of u cuz u just kind of showed up one day and stole his best friend ((((((:
What parts of writing a fic do you think are a chore?
getting started!! and then getting to the parts that i have planned out in my head. i think a lot in “scenes” and theyre often out of order and its just!!!!! fuck!!!!!
another pain in the ass is like actually… GETTING to the fucking when its just supposed to be a fucking quick pwp lmao. i always end up getting caught in the… build up but theres always too much of that in my own writing for my liking, so its always awkward when i finally do get to it :’///
Are there any unintentional trends in your writing?
i switch tenses a lot and it bugs me because i know it’d piss off other people but i really… have a lot of trouble with it. i try to keep it at least the same tense throughout a sentence but im pretty sure that i miss a bunch? if that counts anyway…
aughh im not really sure how to put it into words but like.. my narration is usually the fucking same? like same.. voice i guess? i’ll be trying to stay in one character’s pov (even tho its in 3rd person) and the narration will sound the same as like the one/character in a fucking fic for an entirely different fandom.
again im not really sure if these ones count?
thank u for the asks
