Stuff Writers Say #2

If you're a creative person, you most likely think up some strange things. And sometimes you say them out loud, and people look at you weird. But there's nothing wrong with being weird! So, to embrace my own weirdness and help you embrace yours, I am sharing the weird things I've written in my journal or in my instagram (@StoryworldofEm) captions. Make the world a better place, one word at a time. Enjoy!

"I'm in class and I should focus but I can't stop thinking about my book. I have magic in my fingertips, but I can't use it and it's driving me insane. My story's waiting for me to bring it to life! All I want is to write! No, first burn my school, and then write."
I'm glad I didn't burn my school, because I went to the best high school in the universe :D But sometimes the inspiration just comes out of nowhere and you can't focus on anything else before getting the words out on paper.

"Just got a new book idea but I can't write it because I need to finish my WIP first. #thestruggle"
The fountain of fresh, beautiful, shiny story ideas will never stop flowing and giving life to the plot bunnies. They're everywhere. There's nowhere you can run. The plot bunnies will find you no matter where you hide. But you can always harvest them and stack them in cages for later!

*Insert long description of novel-related things I did all day* "-and then suddenly my laptop lagged and died. Now everything is gone."

Jan 13th 2016
"Stories are the color of my life!"

Jan 18th 2016
"I need HELP!"

"Writers never forget the pain, because that's what makes us write."
Ever spend all night thinking about every mistake you've ever made in your lifetime? We writers dig all those dark things up every time we write. It hurts, but it makes us happy.

"Just spent the last five days making my book playlist. How many words I wrote? Heh, none."

*sobs*: "If my life was a movie, it'd be a romantic comedy and tragedy. It'd star me, a crazy teenager who laughs at her own jokes and crushes on everyone. And the tragedy is that nobody loves me."

"I just used chocolate as a bookmark."
Good thing it was December.

Just in case I wasn't already awkward enough: "I like narrating my life out loud, and I think it's completely normal. Until someone in my family asks who I was talking to in my bedroom. Thank you, guinea pigs, for being my excuse."

27th Dec 2015
"I got a new bookmark and I think I've fallen in love again."
With a bookmark.
It's a really beautiful bookmark though.

"I finally got Red Queen! I've wanted to read it for ages!"
And it took me, what, six months to actually open it. My TBR-pile is endless. Too many books, too little time.

"When reality kicks you in the face, throw a book at it. preferably a thick one."

Nov 24th 2015
"I haven't read in a while because of school. I miss books. It's like I'm on the other side of the world and missing home. Between the pages is where I belong."

If storyworld is where you belong, then you need a palace there. And building palaces takes hard work and persistence. Word by word. Brick by brick. Don't give up on your dreams. Stick with your goals and reach them, until you've built the life of your wildest imagination.

Words are your kingdom, so be the Queen or King worthy of them.

Happy writing!
