    Ok, considering I had to sleep in my room when it was like 90 degrees and I had no air conditioning, no fan. I barely slept but I couldn't even distract myself with the internet. I'm at my mom's office and my computer's dying. Great *he says sarcastically*

    Not really. My handwriting is awful. I wrote a few book reviews and another story but I only planned my novel, didn't do much with it. Im sure you don't care but I was pleasantly surprised to see how one of my books was doing. I now love self pubbing. I am working on an anthology with some of my favorite indie authors. Oh yeah, I was asked to guest post for a pretty popular book blog, in the sig its barbra hightower, so would you mind if I run an idea for that by you. How are you doing?
    and I forgot to mention that I have to take freezing cold showers. The good news: school is delayed.

    Whoa. You write by hand? That. Is. Amazing. O.O

    I have barely enough patience to write microfiction by hand, much less the capability write anything longer than a hundred words by hand.

    I know but it was like six hundred. I don't think I've seen you before. What kinda stories do you write. Flash fiction at all.

    Yeah sure, run whatever by me lol.
    I'm about 40 pages into my second story. It's not a vampire story so hopefully a little less cliched.

    I plot, worldbuild, character build, everything by hand. I only write the actual story by computer.

    Lately I've been writing notes about what's going to happen in the next scene in advance, for when I dont feel in the spirit to actually write the dialogue or whatever.

    I'm going to be doing a lot of plotting and playlist constructing at the moment. I don't feel ready to write Underdogs yet - it sort of feels like I'm cheating on Suns and Stars, haha.

    I'm Jae/Jace. I've been a Twiftie for the longest time, but uni just drags me away lots, so I'm hardly ever here. Sad truth. :|

    For the most part, I write short fiction and novels that lean towards the darker side of things. How about you?

    (And yeah, I plot and characterize by hand, but I don't really count it cause I technically just scribble whatever comes to me at the moment. Any actual writing goes directly to the computer.)

    ETA: Thalia, no, but I'm in love with the title, for what it's worth.
