I dwell in possibility.
An avid reader, supposed movie buff and wannabe writer, interested in (Victorian) literature, period/fantasy/thriller/action/superhero movies, comic books and mythology.
You can always count on me reblogging: Marvel (mostly Loki and Thor, and X-Men), Sherlock, Tolkien, Supernatural, DC Comics, various villains and thrillers/crime movies, stuff about writing, mythology and a bunch of other cool things.
Random writing potpourri: Even if your character’s going through hell externally, if you don’t give your character something to deal with internally, against their own selves, they will be seen more as a symbol. You want to make people, not ‘characters.’
Where I write
The scene of the (writing) crime, haha. It’s usually not so clean. Normally, there’d be notebooks and torn notebook pages strewn, filled with hints and individual sentences and phrases, scattered across the desk, but I cleaned the desk to take a picture of my writing spot. I mean, at least for once, I wanted my room to look clean. :D
My handwriting + story sneak peek
Just sharing my handwriting. The two-page excerpt is from an upcoming fanfiction because I do not wish to share my original fiction online (forever paranoid, fiction thieves and such). As you can see, my handwriting is kinda terrible. What can I say, when I write, I get so into it that I don’t give a shit how I hold my pen, only about what that pen writes down.
If you can’t make out what’s written on the pages, I added a typed version at the very end, hehe. (Or just open the pics in a new tab cause on my blog, they are cropped.)
Haha, I just really wanted to say this.
My Frankenstein one-shot is finished. I had more fun with it than is acceptable. I really am pleased with it.
Sometimes good things happen in writing.
(Also posted on FF and AO3. In case, you know…. Bye.)
I am writing a one-shot based on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
I’m feeling pretty damn great writing something about one of my top books.
(I’m writing a scene that’s not in the novel, namely what transpired between Victor’s wife and the Creature before she was killed.)
So, I wrote a thing
I’ve been avoiding it for years, but a writer shouldn’t be afraid, so I faced my demons, or rather demon: a sex scene. And so I wrote a really short paragraph, from a man’s point of view because why the hell not. If you’re at all interested, read below the break. I can’t promise you quality, but at least I tried. (
If you expected outright smut, sorry to disappoint you.)
IT’S OKAY TO USE “SAID” A WHOLE DAMN BUNCH.
IT’S OKAY TO USE PRONOUNS REPEATEDLY SO LONG AS YOU STRUCTURE YOUR SENTENCES SO AS TO KEEP IT FROM BEING CONFUSING
FUCK, IT’S EVEN OKAY TO USE COMMON SAYINGS AND CLICHES SPARINGLY.
DON’T PURPLE UP YOU PROSE JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK IT’S NOT OKAY TO DO THESE THINGS BECAUSE IT IS
DON’T TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR PLOT TO MAKE ULTIMATELY UNIMPORTANT DETAILS OF YOUR NARRATION LOOK FLASHIER.
Bloodstain Pattern Analysis (BPA) - Resource for Crime Writers
Hi, I’m a writer. My hobbies include not writing.
writing is safer, somehow
because my pen cannot stutter like my lips do,
and words get stuck in throats,
not fingertips, can’t stumble
on paper trails of blue lines
because writing is definite and clear
and no one can tell if i am crying
through written words alone
Writing a novel
60% Staring onto a blank screen
20% Drinking tea/coffee
10% Freaking out because WHAT THE HELL SHOULD I WRITE?
10% Procrastinating on the internet
5% Looking for music to write with
5% Actually writing.
That equals 110%
duh, we’re authors, not mathmagicians.
please tell me that’s not a typo
Of course it’s not a typo. You have to be freaking Dumbledore to do that number shit!
It begins with an idea, an idea that gnaws, that haunts, that spills into the quiet moments, and refuses to go away. With nurturing, the idea grows. It finds purchase in a fertile imagination and unfurls itself, opening into its very own world. Characters arrive. Sometimes they step out of the mist of the mind fully formed, other times they’re lumps of clay that must be sculpted. You can’t wait to give them voice. You can’t wait to tell their tale. Then comes the terror of the blank page. If you’re a beginning screenwriter you ask, “How do I fill 120 pages?” If you’re a seasoned professional you ask, “How do I contain my story to only 120 pages?” And no matter who you are, you ask, “How do I make it good?” It’s enough to send you running to Starbucks for non-fat latte and an afternoon of procrastination. -Andrew Marlowe
Fiction writing is a twenty-four-hour-a-day occupation. You never leave your work behind. It is always with you, and to some extent, you are always thinking about it. You don’t take your work home; your work never leaves home. It lives inside you. It resides and grows and comes alive in your mind.
