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.

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.
