A bit of exhaustion helps!

Need more practice shutting the brain off I guess.

Last night was obviously super easy. Feel bad I didn't go to the gym this morning though.

We can't lay down at all because we'll instantly crash from exhaustion. So yes, we sleep very easily.

I could fall asleep in a hot car if I tried.
Or a couch, or just the pavement. Anywhere really.
We can't get enough of sleep.
Too much sleep makes us sick though.

Been dealing with it for about a week and a half now.  The symptoms all come and go, though, so it's not like it's been unbearable the entire time.

ohhh dragoni, i can so, so super relate to that. if i don't pay attention, i will just fall asleep

too mcuh sleep makes you feel sick? i guess it is just like too little sleep! everything in moderation c:

hey moony

how do you say "starlight glimmer is best pony" in chinese

i wanna surprise my chinese friend with this


File: 1593408381477.jpg (96.66 KB, 826x1107, 826:1107, ELzaca7XYAE97by.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

apparently it's a genre that specifically combines grindcore and Forrest Gump

the only band that plays it is The Forrest Gump Mile High Marathon


File: 1593408816854.jpg (121.42 KB, 1000x1000, 1:1, that muffin.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

i am unsure how to say Starlight Glimmer - i can look up and see if they have translated her name in the Taiwanese version of the show

"Starlight Glimmer" shi zhui bang de xiao ma
"Starlight Glimmer" 是最棒的小馬.

i think best is literally translated as "zhui hao" [most good]. But figuratively, "zhui bang" [most impressive] is more accurate.

Starlight is 星光 "xing guang." Glimmer? i am unsure how to best translate that. i would just say "光" Maybe you can call her xing guang guang
星光光. But it doesn't make too much phonetic sense. Though it sounds nice.

...if a genre has no audience, does it make a sound? is... is it a popular band?


Unless they do it late at night!

It sounds like you need a little more sleep?

While travelling?

Hardboiled, eh?


File: 1593409061334.jpg (49.53 KB, 564x825, 188:275, 65d6f0bee09082d97f8fa438d8….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

depends if you believe sound is something that needs to be perceived to be considered a sound ^^

i doubt it, but that's not exactly surprising. it's a gridcore band with a very niche novelty focus. so it probably is seen as a fun novelty amongst grindcore fans

unlike the Flanders based death metal band, Okilly Dokilly! Those guys are very popular!

true! but when i can't sleep at night, i can find myself doing something active to blow off the energy to help me sleep!

yes c: i know it sounds silly, as i am... not hardboiled

but i think it is fun

i never knew there were so many niche metals

like, picture your happy place in your mind's eye?

i hope it helps c:


Life is life!

What projects?

You can be hardboiled if you want to be.


File: 1593409647662.jpg (51.62 KB, 200x275, 8:11, Goose.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

I guess so. Wouldn't say I have a static 'happy place' but I imagine it would be the same.


File: 1593409795561.png (36.69 KB, 412x382, 206:191, I have no idea.png) ImgOps Google


No, no travelling yet.  And I think at this point I'm giving up on it, too.  The Covid was a concern, but this would just make the whole trip miserable anyway.  I'll just reschedule the trip for a time with less infections.

what do you picture, usually? i like to think of a field of flowers sometimes

i could not be hardboiled even if i tried... but it is fun to pretend


File: 1593410247910.png (63 KB, 861x928, 861:928, 28b.png) ImgOps Google

I pretend to be hardboiled myself.


I mean like.... Ships... Castles... Mountains. Like if I was camping in a cozy mountain cave what would it be like? Things like that I guess.

oh that is a rabbit hole that can go on forever if you let it. there are a lot of different genres and niches. and you can find something for everyone in there ^^

well i'm currently revising my screenplay still. there is a lot to clean up, and i have scenes that i need to redo completely and yada yada yada

the other one... well i don't know yet, i'll get to you on that one :PP


File: 1593410517078.png (282.97 KB, 526x353, 526:353, Shy Fluttersmile.png) ImgOps Google

for fun, or because maybe, you are secretly hardboiled? c:

...that sounds amazing. camping in a cozy mountain cave. snow outside. fire inside.

well when i wrote the first draft, it took about 3 months, and that was last year

so now in the revision stage, i've been at it for about a few weeks at this time. although most of those days are only 1 hour at a time, so it's not as impressive as it sounds :PP


File: 1593411124721.jpg (10.42 KB, 198x256, 99:128, lucy148.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Which part of the process is most fun for you?

hmmm... i guess for me would either be the initial brain storming, where you come up with the story, themes, and beats.

or towards the end when you are on your 2nd-3rd-4th draft and you are tightening the story, making the little nuanced details and changes that elevate the story, and making it really become the unified whole that you first envisioned in your head in the first place <3

File: 1593411841054.jpg (303.33 KB, 1064x720, 133:90, EG1uDw5UwAEJxUv.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

pfft in a way yeah. although i guess it's only natural for a creative. people love to come up with ideas and start projects, or to talk about shows and media they loved to watch and just how complete and whole it feels.

but the middle part is where so many stop, cause now they gotta make the darn thing, and see all the flaws, hiccups, writing blocks, and malaise it brings.

we love the ideas, but the work is seldom loved. but it's that work that seperates those who love stories from those who make the stories we love <3

Yeah, I try to make the scene as detailed as I can.

I imagine real ships, castles and caves are no where near as cozy as I imagine. They're probably like, scurvy and spiders. But I am trying to sleep...

I'd say I'm okay with the work. If it's going well it's about 50/50 torment/enjoyment. But there's a lot that can stop you. Self-doubt is a big one. Losing touch with one's original vision is another. Scrupulosity, comparing yourself to other writers--particularly writers you admire. The prospect that what you're doing may in the end be just for you.

i can safely say i'm much the same way, and all that stuff affects me as well. i don't want to lose my style by focusing too much on the writing of others, but at the same time knowing how others write and make their stories helps you make their art.

it's a balance. and i often err on the side of focusing on my own writing :PP


Oh! I am bad at time zones

Feeling grimdark?

How far are you now anyways?


File: 1593413829866.jpg (107.1 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, maxresdefaultfdsadf.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

well i managed to shave my first draft from 150 pages down to 131. i'm still scouring through pages to cut down on excessive dialogue.

then after i'm done with that, i have a few ideas to combine scenes and to write something that gives the script a better overall narrative structure.


File: 1593413998352.jpg (11.15 KB, 235x260, 47:52, lucy162.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

My approach to that is to go through the problems on my own. I don't read a lot of other fiction and I don't look for talks or lectures on the "art" side of it. Stay with it--see where the work takes you, and when you come out on the other side, then you will have something to stand on when you observe the masters.

Learning from "our" people is tricky, because it can be a distraction and lead to overconfidence; learning from those who are not "our" people is a good exercise, but one has to learn indirectly. The right guidance from the right teacher, as you know, is something one has to be in the right place for. But it takes a long time to get there.

that's mostly what i do, but i do have to admit that i tend to watch a loooooot more videos on the artistry of theater, film, and art in general. so i write a lot with that same intention of making something with artistic meaning, for better and worse. :PP

and other people are not me, and i'm the one writing my thing :PP
