I’m really happy you enjoyed it!! I didn’t know anyone really liked that story in particular. Sadly, I don’t know of any other post-honeymoon type things. I remember reading them but I have no recollection of the titles or authors so I’m basically useless. Regrettably, I don’t read much Percy/Annabeth fanfiction because every time I try to go in the archive I spend hours looking for something worth reading before usually giving up. If anyone has any author recs or story recs or anything I’d be happy to read them!!
Sooo many of them are older and awful. Quite a few are newer and awful, too. If you guys saw the first drafts of what I write you would never even speak to me again.
I have no clue where I was going with “What the fuck”?? Like I read it over and it seems angsty and sad like Percy wants to date Annabeth but she can’t date but they’ve kissed and stuff… I haven’t the slightest. It was probably one of those situations where I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t get back to sleep so I started writing and then fell back asleep and woke up with no recollection of ever writing it
No!! I took AP Lang last year, AP Lit this year. I would have actually enjoyed retaking AP Lang honestly that is my favorite course I have ever taken ever
I don’t really collaborate with anyone but that’s mostly because my writing comes in fits and starts and I imagine I would be a pain in the ass to work with because of that, honestly. Maybe some time this summer I’ll be able to get a few collabs in because I do love working with other writers!! It’s mostly a me problem.
Dude!!! Thank you so much. It really means a lot to me to get this kind of encouragement.
Speaking of encouragement, I had my first AP Lit test on Tuesday and we got them back today. The whole test was open ended responses like essay and paragraph answers and I was really nervous about it because first test of the year but I made a 92!!! Which was really cool because my teacher is one of those really harsh graders that hardly ever gives out As. And then after that he came by my desk and said “I really like the way you write” which is like!!!! An honor coming from him.
God I hope I do something with writing it would suck so bad to waste this apparent talent
But anyways the point of telling you guys that was to say that the only reason I am a good writer is because I’ve spent years developing a style, even if it’s only fanfiction, and it tends to show that I have a little more experience as a writer. So thank you all so much for the continued support and general wonderfulness about my writing!!! You all mean the world.
I’ve considered it a few times but it’s not really my thing. I’m not so sure I’m qualified to give advice on it, having never participated, but I’ll let you know if I come across anyone who is and might be willing to give you advice!!!! Good luck if you go through with it.
When I really enjoy a fic or even a book I usually stay away from it for a while and then I come back and read it and fall in love all over again!! It’s amazing how many details you can forget in just a few weeks’ time.
Someone dry my car for me it’s too hot outside
I reccommend doing a freewrite personally. Don’t think too hard about your subject matter; it’ll come when it does, but first you have to work up some creativity and inspiration. When I’m having some writer’s block problems I tend to just start writing something—whatever is in my mind—and just go for it. After a while my mind sort of wonders and before long I’ve thought of a new AU. Don’t stress out too much!! Just kind of relax, write out what you think, pen down any potential ideas, and before long you’ll have one.
From there, let me know if you run into any specific troubles and I’d be glad to help out.
To everyone else: there’s around 12 more messages in my ask I desperately need to answer, so I’m very sorry I’m behind. Once I’m done working I’ll tend to those!! Not ignoring you.
What a compliment!!!! Thank you so much. I’m awful at writing action, however, so maybe I could just write the P/A scenes and he can handle the rest.
