i technically wasn't tagged but i'm doin it anyway, herewego
(Just for a bit of context, I write mostly as a little hobby when I'm bored or want to vent my ideas and concepts into words/stories. I don't do it super regularly or often, though it has been growing on me lately; and with the comic project it's bound to become a regular activity)1. Tell us about your WIP!
The one I'm sharing publicly, Born of a Spirit. It's technically a comic but whatever it's still a story
I'm also working on a HTTYD fan-story-thing, and another few short stories based on a worldbuilding project with me and a friend (Skyworlds). I don't really share em online but if people care to see em i probably wouldn't mind posting finished products
2. Where is your favorite place to write?
Considering that it's all on the computer... at the computer. It's where I draw the comic, plan out the timeline, write short stories, etc. If I had the option to take it with me wherever, it would probably be the opposite; whenever I don't have access to a computer, as a secondary entertainment thingy.3. What is your favorite/least favorite part about writing?
Favorite: Describing the characters and their scenery, and writing casual dialogue
Least Favorite: Trying to get readers emotional. It's rewarding when I can do it well, but really frustrating when I can't because I feel like the intensity of whatever the moment is would be lost.
4. Do you have any writing habits/rituals?
Lol "rituals". I don't really, I often listen to music though. HTTYD soundtrack mostly because it's just... *fangirling continues*.5. What things (scenes/topics/character types) are you most comfortable writing?
I like casual conversation/dialogue. It's just lighthearted, especially in comparison to all the times I take it from 1 to 10 very quickly in short scenes/stories, it's relaxing because what I'm writing doesn't need to have much of an impact as later scenes. I will tell ya though, they're a lot less interesting to draw!6. Favorite character you’ve written?
That's tricky... A good amount of my writing includes other people's characters, and my own aren't quite as developed in comparison, mostly in Skyworlds. I have written a few characters in unrelated stories that are near-sociopaths, and idk I kinda enjoy the coldness and emptiness of characters like that. It's kinda creepy, but my lowkey-edgy self likes creepy stuff so-7. How do you cope with writer’s block?
I don't, really. That'll probably change the more consistently I have to post stories, but for now I feel like it's best not to work on something if I don't have motivation or excitement for it. It'd drain the life from the story, and I just wouldn't be enjoying myself, and what's the point of having a hobby if it feels like a chore?8. Do you have any writing buddies or critique partners?
Depends on what I'm working on. I often read my stories to friends and family for feedback and just to share my work if I'm proud of it, though not with everything. I work with my friend PeriwinklePB on alot of Skyworlds stories, though it's usually with her characters and character arcs, lol.
9. How do you deal with self-doubt when writing?
I don't doubt my writing very much, when I do it's usually just me ignoring it and continuing, or I just stop writing for a bit. Like I said, if I'm not enjoying myself, I'm not gonna keep going on something that's an optional hobby.10. What does it take for you to be ready to write a book? (i.e. do you research? outline? make a playlist or Pinterest board? wing it?)
I often feel like i need to have a world outlined so I know all the rules before I write. Unfortunitely, this means I do alot of worldbuilding rather than actual writing with fully made-up stories like Skyworlds, though it also means I find it alot easier to start writing if there's already an established world, like in a movie or book series, hence why I have some stories of Warriors and HTTYD and whatnot.11. What are you planning to work on next?
I... don't really know? In terms of the Warriors comic, probably a sequel or prequel to Born of a Spirit (i planned Rise of Mistclan to be a small series of sorts), and though I haven't really worked out a plot for further sequels and stuff, I think that'll make it more fun to go through the creative process again with each new comic. I hope it all works out.
As for the other short stories... whatever comes to mind, basically. As far as text goes, i usually keep it to individual scenes of a page or two, and write them whenever I have the idea, inspiration, and/or motivation.
I'm sure alot of these answers will change in time, maybe I'll come back to this tag if I'm still writing at mysterious-point-in-future to see how things change. But there, in case you care about my thoughts on writing as of now, there ya have it.
im not really sure how to end this journal
uh bye i guess lol
