Why am I writing when I can't even SPELL?

Why am I worrying about spelling in a fandom that hardly rates it as a necessity?

OMFG, my brain hurts. That's it, no more fic. Just because I have this THING sitting my head like some kind of CANCEROUS TOAD doesn't mean it needs to be written. It's so not worth the angst on just about every count.

Buggering HELL, what did I used to DO with my Saturday nights before I wrote fic?

BUGGER, BUGGER, BUGGER.

This isn't much fun right now.

Great, now I look like I'm an attention-seeking whore. Look, nobody comment unless you can speak cancerous toad, okay? That's all my brain understands.

It's just, you know, GAH and YUCK and OHJESUS, you know?

I have to go through the 'I'm writing for my own satisfaction so my satisfaction is pretty easily satisfied with CRAP' rigmarole that happens every fortnight. Oh, the joy. To be a balanced individual --!

Want to write my paper for me?

(This question was brought to you by my brain in cancerous toad mode, which is not a fun place to be. For anyone involved.)

Am holding myself back from collapsing on your internets shoulder. I get scared of that huge abyss of pointlessness. I know there's NOTHING THERE. But sometimes it looks back at meeeee ...

Plus I found out yesterday that we have a module exam in TWO WEEKS. A terms' worth of stuff on respiration and cardiovascular systems and AHH AHHH AHHHHH.

Which may be why my writing brain has stalled.

Meh, I've never been much for going out on a Saturday night. Too expensive. But I just passed up a night out in order to go to bed at 9pm, so what do I know?

I can't speak cancerous toad, but once when I took too much LSD I was able to understand it. A toad informed me that it was very much fun being a toad because there were few responsibilities and you could just hang out doing toad stuff. Then he informed me that I was in for a rough ride because I had taken entirely too much acid this time (he was right, unfortunately. Note to toad: No one likes a know-it-all). He also told me he was an earth elemental but I think he was talking out of his ass at that point.

I quit doing drugs over ten years ago (and acid much, much sooner - the toad was right) so no one freak. Just in case someone thinks this is an endorsement for them, it absolutely ruined my health and I don't recommend their use.

...

My toad does nothing but poke my brain and say, "Hasn't it become obvious yet how much you suck, LOSER? GIVE UP. LOSER. Ribbet, etc."

I'm sorry that they affected your health, though. I mean, yes, I know they're bad about you, but you'd think it was arranged so that when you came around the effect would go away in proportion.

I smoke when I'm drunk, but I doubt that it counts. I wouldn't even know where to lay my hands on anything harder. LJ is enough, really.

I have a lot of rage.

Spelling isn't spelling, it's a pseudonym for a whole host of other un-nice things.

*resounding yet somehow reassuring croak*

Ooh. I think I read this on a site for how to deal with writer's block. Try to communicate the cancerous toad through another medium, i.e. not words. Like fanart. Or interpretive dance.

*kisses*

My RL friends are very keen for our Bichemistry lecturer to give his lectures through the medium of interpretive dance. They even show him how, quietly, from their seats.

As yet it has not provoked me to slash. Frightened laughter, yes; slash, no.

S'okay, it's not like I need to write. Not like it's a huge part of my life or anything ...

And then when a) other people don't put that effort in and get accolade upon accolade for it...

Uh...How d'you know if other people do or don't put that effort in?
every Starbucks should have a polar bear: Wildescoradh on January 15th, 2006 07:54 am (UTC)
Yes, I suppose that is a bit unfair (not that I ever claimed to be fair ... or anything except a whiny teenager ...). What I mean by that is kind of complicated, so it's easier to say 'little effort'. It encorporates poor characterisation in which you could be talking about any boyxboy, and nothing to differentiate H/D from S/R or the moon; repetition of words; evidence that the stuff hasn't been read over, beta'ed, or both, due to superfluous phrases and jarring syntax; stale sex.

I'm not saying my stuff hasn't got all of that in it, but you know when you read something and it's quite obvious that it was a bit of a rush-job? Or that the person is just obviously talentless?

I'm not referring to you, naturally. Please don't go moral on me!!

Because you're better than that?

And I'm ignoring the cancerous toad bit, because my own brain can't wrap itself around it nor think of an oh-so-witty thing to say in response to it.

I suppose nourishing a superiority complex IS the only way to get by in this fandom.

It's probably a bit insulting to toads, when you get right down to it.
