I dunno where to start…

I spent the better part of the weekend sabotaging my own plans to expand on my star wars fanfic. I am actually pathetic 🤣😂 I cannot do anything other than laugh at my own silliness. I don’t know why writing on Wattpad has become this thing that is suddenly so imposing, so scary.

And I feel that if I force myself to write something I don’t feel, it’ll be terrible and nobody will ever read it.

Ho hum the work of a writer is never done!!

Wattpad 101 – How long should a chapter be?

You imagine, I imagine

After recently returning to tumblr, I am beginning to feel like a spectator more than a participant. It’s not that tumblr has changed all that much since I last used it but it seems like a foreign world to me all the same. I am procrastinating over my fanfic and fear I am losing the edge to just “do it” and roll with whatever comes. Posting pics was just fine and dandy but now I have to actually write and let me tell ya, there are some very talented writers on tumblr. There is also a new language amongst the fanfic elite on tumblr – a new word I’m seeing all the time – “imagine” which is basically you (the writer) imagine something about your chosen OTP (one true pairing) or your fandom or fandoms (as the case may be), and you write about it.

It’s very much like an exclusive club and I’m on the outside looking in. A lot of the fanfic writers are part of what appears to be a very close-knit community. I have doubts. I’m being a total wuss about it, right? I’m sure I’m not the only writer who has doubted themselves…
