seeing the continuing bs about alt-right YouTubers makes me want to start a vlog where I just heavily influence youngsters to make moral decisions and question authority??

while I would love to have a blog that tons of people interacted with and demanded content from, I’m glad to have my small corner of the internet with my loyal buddies because it means I am free from pressure to create exclusively the content that my audience wants… I am free to create what I want. and therefore when people like it, it’s even more exciting. does that make sense? I’ve been thinking about it a lot and that’s the conclusion I’m trying to focus on – comparison culture sucksssssss but I’m trying to be stronger than that 

anyway

this #FinishUrBookFall I finished – 

RIPE (my major project for my Masters) – 40,000 words

An Orchid Darkly Blooming – approx. 53,000 words

Sea Glass Soul – 40,000 words 

I thought I could take a break and relax but when I tried to do that my brain went in five directions at once (: so I’m going to try to finish Aurora & Sky now, before Valentine’s Day, for ebook release 

…tbh tho, writing is frustrating and lonely without my cohort. I miss having my writerly peeps around to swap ideas with?? and like I know logically these things take time. I can’t expect instant validation or success, even when I do have access to such an awesome platform as Wattpad. but like… yeah. the frustration and loneliness are there. 

I’m not trying to say all this for pity or whatever. just wanted to be honest and vulnerable, because I feel safe with you guys, and I feel like I put up a facade on here a lot. even though I finished these manuscripts, I feel like it’s not enough. idk but I know a lot of the pressure is internal, and also comes from setting unrealistic goals for myself?? urrrghghgh 

it’s not like I’m considering giving up writing. I don’t want anyone to panic. just wondering if I should try a different angle or something haha
