i’m suddenly sick and sick enough to have only gotten six hours of bad sleep despite taking medicine last night so that means i get to have a splitting headache, a tight chest full of congestion, a voice-destroyingly bad sore throat, and a stomach that demands food but acts like it will expel it violently whenever consumed oh and now my head is full of fluff and sand thanks to the medicine...
8. Do you try to emulate any other authors’ writing styles? Not actively. I feel like I might have when I was younger, but the thing I soon came to realize about writing and what I wanted to write was that no one writes the way I want to tell a story. I had to come up with a style that communicated things the way I wanted, and I hadn’t seen many good examples of it. I don’t...
11. QUICK. Ship two of your characters in a humorous fashion. (Characters: Hova and Kailas from Chigai, AKA my go-to girls for writing dorky mush.) “What is this?” “It’s a crown of flowers.” “Why in the world did you just a crown of flowers on me? And when did you have time to make it?” “You’ve been in here studying your maps for three...
16. QUICK x2. Write something at least 300 words long. (Characters: Cam Wilson and Vita Mathewson from my novel in progress, Seeping Thoughts of Loneliness.) The remains of a shattered bottle were in the sink. When Cam drew near, she was able to see the shreds of foam still clinging to the glass before the pungent scent of beer struck her full in the nose. She sneezed once and took a massive...
Did the first two right here. 12. What do you struggle with most in the mechanical side of writing? It sort of depends on which medium I’m working with and what part of the mechanics we’re talking about. When I’m writing longhand in my notebooks at work, my brain short-circuits and goes too quickly for my hand to keep up, and I wind up mashing two words together because of...
3. What subjects are you most comfortable writing about? Most comfortable would probably have lesbianism (e.g. how an individual does or does not accept their sexuality), high stakes drama, and psychological angst. 4. What subjects are you least comfortable writing about? Transgender topics (because I am woefully uninformed and I dislike being an uninformed writer about such weighty subjects...

more preview spam
Okay, very quickly before I go to work. THINGS I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THE FRONTIERSTUCK CHARACTERS BEFORE WRITING CHAPTER 16: John Egbert feels that the other humans are his family even more powerfully than Jade does. Jade Harley calls Dave “mister cool mobster.” Dave Strider has a few tattoos. That last one came literally out of nowhere—my hands just typed it automatically...
John laughed to cut him off and squeezed them hard. “This is the first time in years I’ve been able to get all of you in one big hug! I can’t help it! And I think Rosie likes being in the middle just fine!” Thank you, John. With that last line, you have officially reminded me of that latent desire of mine to write a giant cuddle-puddle story involving just the kid characters.
A preview from chapter 16, slightly edited. When she only stared at him, eyes wide and lips parted, he sighed. He lowered his voice and said, “We’re doin’ this, sister, whether you like it or not.” He gave her a small smile. “For God’s sake, Lalonde, stop bein’ noble and let me take care of my little sister for once.” “And my little sister, too!” said John. “Shut your yapper, Egbert, I’m...
mr-radical: bigger version http://i.imgur.com/YzCee.png Every so often when I see a picture, I produce a sound that can be best described as weeping laughter. That was what happened right now.
Allow me to provide clarity on some things. I am always inclined to debate things. I value using words accurately, and I want others to do the same. I am very passionate about things, and I am prone to speaking up because I dislike the shrugging of shoulders to issues that should be debated. If you feel that passionate and serious debates about passionate and serious topics should not be...

Every so often, my job makes me a little happy by reminding me new things I like are being made. Case in point: last night, someone came through my line with a new CD of a band I love. I’d forgotten they were making a new album, and I downloaded it this morning before I have to go to work. (if you’re curious, it’s the new album from Daughtry) Probably going to finally give in...
Since I finished chapter fifteen of Frontierstuck last night and announced that chapter sixteen is the final chapter, I thought back to my last major project that I actually finished and its last proper chapter. It wound up being over seventy pages in Word. … I really don’t think it’ll be as long as that (because I have to work on something else before Christmas), but looks...
Chapter 15 of Frontierstuck: In the Hands of Royalty. In which recoveries are made; new bodies and their problems are discussed; old wounds are touched on; a war meeting is called; and the terms for victory are set. Also known as chapter 15 of 16. Feel free to ask me questions or whatever, I’m going to go do something that is entirely unrelated to Frontierstuck or writing in general for...
okay that's it
I’m done with this chapter. If I’m not, I will kill something. Expect a post soon. Potentially expect a post later wherein I foam at the mouth about how much this chapter sucked in terms of writing.
strange moments in writing
Having an argument over the morality of a choice made after one character’s death—when the character is, in fact, alive again and actively participating in the argument. I’d say “only in Homestuck,” but I’m sure I could do something like this in some original piece. Also, characters are slapping each other really hard rather unexpectedly, but not without...

thank you, Feferi
You just made me stop hating this chapter with this brief exchange. Feferi laughed aloud and clapped her hands. “Oh, this is so exciting! I’ve never really done magic before!” “Magic?” Rose said. “What are you talking about? Magic—magic isn’t real.” “Of course it is! I just did it!”
My mother: Hey, you finally have the day off tomorrow! What are your plans? Are you going to play your new game--
Me: I AM GOING TO WORK ON THIS CHAPTER BECAUSE IF I DON'T FINISH IT BY THE END OF THE WEEK I WILL BREAK SOMETHING IN HALF.
ultimatums to myself
You have been fucking around with chapter fifteen and procrastinating for more than three weeks now. That is ridiculous and you know it. Even if you’ve had a lot of things going on in real life and you feel like you’ve lost momentum, that’s no excuse. You have done perfectly fine in keeping up with a schedule and consistently getting work done until now. You are being lazy...

Ever have one of those days where you know you want a hug and probably should get one—but you feel like you’ll punch out anyone who comes close to touching you?

Me: Did you just text me another bieber song? XD
My girlfriend: I will slowly, song by song, woo you, serenading and showing you my love via the entire Bieber catalogue.
Me: You are the world's most charming girlfriend, and I love you to bits.
My girlfriend: Only tween pop songs can fully capture the full spectrum of my emotions for you. Baby, baby, baby, ooooh.
Me: Okay, I'm sorry, this is too funny. I want to put this on tumblr.
My girlfriend: Hahaha! Okay. Go for it. XD
Me: Aaaaand done.
Anonymous asked: Nononononononono. If you allow RD to go unpublished I might just have a seizure. It's been my fix since Chigai ended. I mean, I love all the canon Homestuck characters but there's just something so refreshing about your OCs. Maybe it's because with canon there isn't a true mystery as to how their interactions will play out in the end. I dunno.. I just NEED RD in my life. Thank...
I built the world of Frontierstuck in a few stages. The first stage was sitting down and hashing out the barebone plot: the conflict that arose from Jack Noir’s creation and how I would more or less resolve it. The second stage was developing the basic traits of the characters involved, while leaving me wiggle room for when I got into writing them properly. I have to leave myself space...
I think I said in my response about writing erotic scenes that emotion and the state of the relationship between the parties make the biggest and strongest components of the scene. For fighting, it’s all about the movement. When you write a fight scene, you really and truly must map it out in your head. There has to be a sense of fluidity in the writing itself. There’s so much...
brachydios asked: Hi. I just read all of Frontierstuck between today and yesterday and I'd just like to say thank you for MAKING ME FEEL.

That said, thank you so much!

Didn't write a word today
Instead, I went to work and found out that I have a full weekend off next week. This means that my girlfriend is coming to visit and we get to hang out the whole time. Who cares about writing at the moment? Not me!
Finally got that incredibly difficult scene out of the way! Now I can work on the last two scenes for the chapter! Oh my god, Eridan, stop black-flirting with Rose. And Vriska, stop fighting with him over who gets to black-flirt with Rose! …Kanaya, stop laughing about this! Jesus christ, you people.
Had the last two days off
Did nothing but sleep ridiculously late, read comics, play video games, and talk to my girlfriend. Days well spent.
