Real Life Problems  
When you're supposed to be studying but instead you're writing (smut, precisely) and two pidgeons start mating on your balcony and making all these weird "prprprgluglu" noises and nothing, this scene is all about bird-sex metaphors now. Not good. Must rewrite.

In other (terrible, terrible) news, I ended up writing a hell lot more than I intended to at first (like, I just don't know what a flashback is, or what "keep it short" means, apparently) and now I have a 22 pages long "first" chapter that makes absolutely NO SENSE AT ALL till you reach, like, the end of it, where the only "scene" I was supposed to write ended up being located. Kinda makes me want to shout at myself WHY MUST YOU BE LIKE THIS, YOU DUMB IDIOT, WHY.

*sigh, a long-suffering one*

P.S.: wowzers, this is my first proper entry on DW and I'm already complaining about something! :D

lmao I'm now overly curious as to whatever crazy, pigeon inspired scene you wrote XD

Ah yes, I also have a wee bit of a problem keeping things short... it's why I haven't seemed to be able to finish any of my big WIP's... oops.

Lol, I kind of wanted to keep it but I had to delete it in the end. Prurururuglugluing lovebirds... let's say it was ruining the whole mood. XD

N'AW, BRUH, here, let me give you a hug :< it's so frustrating, isn't it? I thought I was done with Chapter 1 and I'm currently writing Chapter 2 but I STILL DON'T KNOW, I feel like maybe I should add something there and maybe cut some other stuff... I'm lost in a sea of words, quite literally.

Oh no! *throws you a rubber dinghy and life jacket*I feel your pain! GOOD LUCK!!! I hope you manage to sort it XD

Wow 22 pages of pigeon sex

LOL - no, that was just a tiny paragraph! XD
The 22 pages (now 23, because I can't stop) are, luckily enough, bird-sex free :P
Tamar Elmensdorp-Lijzenga[personal profile] tamarelmensdorp on April 14th, 2017 11:53 am (UTC)
Ah well, one paragraph of pigeon sex is quite enough perhaps.

No worries, I've already deleted it. u_u

But, but, but... what about the poor birdies? Aren't they allowed to have some fun?

There's already a ghost here causing troubles, we don't really need the birds adding up to it, too - I mean, this chapter is already long enough. Maybe next time. XD
Tamar Elmensdorp-Lijzenga[personal profile] tamarelmensdorp on April 14th, 2017 12:28 pm (UTC)
Ghost? Not Patrick Swayze I hope?

AHAHAHHAHAH - no. No, most definitely not. XD

Thank god for that.

Oh my god, I wish I could read the pidgeon sex inspired smut xDDD

Wow, that's a super long chapter!!!

Something about flapping limbs and gurgling sounds and swelling chests and ruffled feathers. You really don't want to know. XDDD

I know, IT'S SO LONG, and I'm still writing it! I'll have to split it eventually, but I just don't know when/how :/
thekeyholder91[personal profile] thekeyholder91 on April 14th, 2017 12:23 pm (UTC)
Haha!

Oh yeah, that can be troublesome to split up things which you wrote as one block of text... if I can help in any way, let me know :)
♫ sick of this space, wish we could be far away[personal profile] forameus on April 14th, 2017 12:32 pm (UTC)
If you could give it just a quick read-over once I finish re-writing this scene I would GREATLY appreciate it! Luckily enough it's not just one big block, I just need a lil help locating the *split* itself, because I still feel like all the bits and stuff should be part of the same chapter :
thekeyholder91[personal profile] thekeyholder91 on April 14th, 2017 12:33 pm (UTC)
Yeah, of course! :) We'll find the splitting point too, no worries.

You are a gem. ♥
I'm writing on gdocs - but I still need a bit of time 'cos I'm rewriting a whole scene. How would that work for you? :)
thekeyholder91: discobells[personal profile] thekeyholder91 on April 14th, 2017 12:49 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, I'm mostly working on gdocs too. :)
♫ sick of this space, wish we could be far away[personal profile] forameus on April 14th, 2017 12:53 pm (UTC)
Yay! :D
I'll tell you as soon as I'm done with it - thank you so much! ♥
