oh man I'm sorry I've been so inactive- Imma try to respond to a bunch of stuff later, for now I'm gonna answer questions

Have you ever had an agender character? If so, how did you use pronouns for them? If not, how do you think you'd use pronouns?
I write a lot of gender-queer characters. agender, I just use they/them. my favorite thing to do is with a character who might be genderfluid or bigender I specify their gender at the beginning of a chapter, or if they're trans I might have like 1st person perspective or a friend's perspective using feminine tones and pronouns but someone who they aren't out to using masculine, etc.

What are your writing goals for 2018?

The days when tending livestock turns into hunts for feijoas and walnuts; when warm sunlight gives way to cosy fires and soft blankets, hot chocolate singeing your fingers while crisp winds carol outdoors.xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxx

Thanks Ranger <3

New question bc the thread died!

[b]Do you find that writing provides a distraction from your life, or that it makes you painfully more aware of it?[/b]


Personally, I find it kind of does both? When I'm having a down episode, one of the things that helps is to just pour my emotions out into some writing, be it in a poem or just writing without any structure. But then afterwards, it makes me really acutely aware of the thing that caused me to spill my feelings in the first place. I mean, it can be helpful because it will help me to understand why I'm feeling down so I can address the issue, but then it can also just confuse me more. Is that weird? Honestly, I've been having such a love-hate relationship with writing lately ^^'

Do you find that writing provides a distraction from your life, or that it makes you painfully more aware of it?

Definitely both. In the rare cases that I don't write about mythology or fantasy or anything like that, I'm writing poems that constantly make me question my own existence. I am filled with existential fear and crippling depression. Then I have to stop writing poems and go back to fantasy because in the end, fantasy is what takes me away from the reality of this world and brings me into a world of my own creation where I guess I can find happiness for a little while.

Okay this was a little bit depressing.

I feel like writing should generally have no connection to your real life. It ckind of completely defeats the entire purpose (creating a world and people as though they were real independantly of the "real" world).

For me, definitely.

I have based many characters in my main novel on real people. So it kind of makes me realize how much time changes personality. Yet, I've made such distinct changes to them, thier almost like totally different people.

I enjoy building new worlds.

wow i've been dead to the world huh
anyway i'm procrastinating working on a poetry project due tomorrow (which i still have two poems and 200 words to go rip me)
i really need to write something. i'll probably a 200 word a day challenge or smth bc i haven't written anything in a month? yikes

have you ever had an agender character? if so, how did you use pronouns for them? if not, how do you think you'd use pronouns?
i haven't, but if i did, i'd use they/them (or maybe some other pronoun) and use "themself" instead of "themselves".

do you find that writing provides a distraction from your life, or that it makes you painfully more aware of it?
i find that it lets me hide from reality, but it makes me terribly aware of my poor mental state and total lack of motivation. i'd rather saw my hand off than write an original piece, but sometimes it helps me deal with everything.

what is your way of curing writers block?
i write self-indulgent fanfiction. it lets me do whatever i want with pre-developed characters and even a storyline i can work off of. i suppose it's not the best idea, but it works okay for me. that being said, i've been struggling with mental health a lot lately, so the most writing i've done was creating fan theories for how vampires work.

Well, it distracts me from my life, my current situation, but it makes me aware of the greater panorama of life, the 'bigger picture' to borrow with one of the sorriest cliches.

What is your way of curing writers block?
Ignoring it? Going and drawing or watching a show if I have artist's block too, basically either totally pretending that writing doesn't exsist or reading old writing and writing prompts.

Do you find that writing provides a distraction from your life, or that it makes you painfully more aware of it?

I find that writing is a distraction from my life. Even when I was creating poems while depressed, of which I did often while in Middle to High School. Even though it brought the problem up I just found it easier to walk away from afterwards. It was a way to healthily get out what was bothering me without hurting others or telling someone that I was hurting. (Which is really bad in itself. Please tell someone that you trust if you're hurting really bad like this. It's not good to keep to yourself for a long period of time.)

Of my poems, 'My Wall' was one of those that brought up those problems, addressed them but made me feel better afterward. It was a way to cope without Chuggaaconroy. It was a way to cope without bothering my mom. It was a way to cope without being told to shut up and go away by my father.

So it was a lovely distraction for me. But I stopped after I moved away. I had no more drive to actually create poems, so even though I love poetry. I don't make it anymore so nowadays I don't know if that's still true.

I'm still a bit awkward sharing stuff like this. But it's on my wattpad so meh?


What is your way of curing writers block?

To be honest. I really don't. Sometimes I forget I'm an Author, as I walk away from my writing for long periods of time. So I think that helps with it? Maybe? Not really? I read ideas and then go "That'd be a great idea for -insert book here- maybe I should write that down" And then I don't. And forget. Lmao.

Do you find that writing provides a distraction from your life, or that it makes you painfully more aware of it?
Like most people, it does both depending on what I'm writing. When I'm just having fun, creating a story that isn't based on anything personal, it distracts me from my life. Sometimes, though, I have to write something based on personal experience and (if that experience wasn't good) analyzing and re-living it can be... uncomfortable.

What is your way of curing writers block?
Depends on why I have writers block. If I can't write because I don't know how to write a particular scene, I just work on something else. If I can't write because I'm feeling down, then I focus on feeling better before I try to do any writing. If I can't write because of a lack of inspiration, I read/watch things that I know inspire me and that have cured writers block for me in the past.

-snip-

Good luck with that!

What kind of characters do you like to write for? Why?
My favourite character to write for is Malik, because he's so intelligent but also kinda a psychopath. He loves to intimidate and scare people, and always strives to be unexpected and never bothered by anything. It makes for interesting conversations.

Speaking of characters, who from media inspires you?
My main source of inspiration when all else fails... here. Such a creative person, and incredibly weird.

Who do you base your characters off of?
Always a mix of people I know, myself, and other characters. Rarely anyone or anything specific.

I have a question, to add to all the others:
Code: Select all
[b]Do you have a notebook where you write down thoughts and ideas?[/b]

I recently started doing this and it is surprisingly helpful. Plus, it'll probably be fun to read (and cringe at) when I'm older.
