How many times have you been thrown off plot for a particular WIP?
Loads. I don't really mind. I just adapt and evolve it as I go. Plus, plot is more vague to me. Characters are what stick and stay.
Any OC that you killed cold heartedly without a second thought?
Uh, not that I can think of, because I don't really do that. I am very soft-hearted, Asa writer and as a person.
7 I answered already!
Thanks for asking!

How often do you stick to your original plot?
This is tricky to answer because I rarely have an original plot to stick to. Also, almost never. Youth, summon, rain, and city stories all started out as something else. I regret nothing, and I'll keep changing them if I need to.
Do you have any characters based off people you know?
Yes, sort of. I keep giving my writeblr friends animal cameos in magick story. Additionally, Kyle Heron is based on my coworker, who is one of those people who seems too nice to exist.
Thanks for asking, Gentleflame!

hey sleepy :D 3 and 7 for the ask game!
[@rodentwrites]
The WIP you are most attached to.
Youth story, definitely. My most favorite beloved group of teenagers. No plot, only vibes and all the indulgence I want.
Which OC do you want to punch in the face?
Masryune, slick smug bastard that he is. The dragons deserve better. And Alexander Gold, slick smug bastard that he is. My people antagonists are of the same breed, different execution. They're both unapologetically cruel in it for personal gain. Mr. Gold is slimier. Masryune does not care how many people he kills.
Thanks for asking! (Can you be Mouse? I'd love to have a friend Mouse)

Writer's Ask Game
There are a couple weird and unrelated questions in there.
What was the first thing you ever wrote for yourself? Not for a school assignment but for your own enjoyment.
That one genre you always try to avoid writing about and why?
The WIP you are most attached to.
How many times have you been thrown off plot for a particular WIP?
How would you describe your writing style? Does your writing style change for different WIPs? If yes describe all or maybe just a few.
Which part of writing annoys you the most?
Which OC do you want to punch in the face?
Which OC do you think you will enjoy enacting and why?
How do you get rid of writers block? (I wanna know your secret method)
How often do you stick to your original plot?
Tell me about that spinoff you had for your WIP.
Do you have any characters based off people you know?
Unrelated but what are your opinions on J.K.Rowling?
How do you set the mood for the story?
Is there any scene you were/ are scared of writing? Why?
Have you ever made any major changes to any of you OCs? Which and why?
What/Who influenced you to start writing and why do you write?
Babble. Just talk about anything or everything. How's life going?
Which OC do you relate to the most?
Which OC do you wish you were? Why?
Have you thrown any writing rules that everybody follows out of the window?
Any OC that you killed cold heartedly without a second thought?
Tell me about your newest WIP idea. Even if you haven't written it down. Even if it will die in a matter of days.
Talk about the adorable cinnamon roll OC.
There is no 25th question. Let the person who asks decide what it should be.

Happy wbw!! Does your world have any "weird" laws? Or like, laws that we as humans on earth would find weird.
In Sinderport, it's illegal for summoners to make life-saving bargains with saket spirits because saket are pests and when the spirit brings you back to life (natural death doesn't count) it follows the human back to the human world.
It's also illegal sell paint from a market stall while it's raining due to an incident many years ago. Let's just say that Cryer Lane hadn't intended to take notes from a children's hospital.
Thanks for asking!

hello and how are you?
Happy Worldbuilding Wednesday, Sleepy! We came to offer a question to help with your brain getting the juices flowing and all!
Are there places or environments that you have developed within your Worlds that don't directly get a spotlight in the story? Or do you just develop the settings that the Story is happening in and keep everything else vague?
The Not Yet Dead Author, @365runesofwriting
I develop places that the story is happening in and keep everything else vague. Summon story takes place in Sinderport and we don't know anything else about the surrounding areas because I haven't even thought about it.
Magick story takes place in one town that doesn't even have a name yet.
Youth story is so detached from the real world that even though it takes place in alternate Paris, I don't mention any specific places or at least, I have not so far.
City story takes place in a fictional city also without a name currently and I've only described it vaguely thus far.
I spend considerably more time fleshing out my characters than anything else in the story. Places are slow to come into focus.
Thanks for asking!

I haven't written a poem in ages. I hate it. There are always good thoughts I could blister peel out of me, but I'm not at liberty. My gates are closed while my back aches. My tongue is slow. I can't create. When tomorrow shows up I'll be the same. I'm yearning for a new growth, for another fade. I want to wake up and speak. But I'm still asleep.

I got hope and that's not entirely accurate. I create from belief, in many things but the belief that people can choose to be better is probably what comes across the most.
hey everyone 👋 take my uquiz i finished and then forgot about for months. it's 28 questions with 15 results and there's no lyrics or pop culture references so it should be friendly to non-americans and people like me who are just out of touch
