    "People now die in a very simple manner. First, they lose interest in everything. Then, they lie in bed, and never rise again. They die as if falling asleep, and the surrounding people, half dead themselves, pay them no attention."
    Yep, I gotten to the point where I'd write about a nuclear missile launch than to write lewds.

    The procrastination is real.
    Oh that was a bit more painful than I expected...

    Shit happens. Sometimes that shit is really hard. Usually because of dehydration and a lack of fiber in your diet.
    Me when starting a story: "This time around I'm going to make this serious and gritty."

    A dozen posts later: "How many shitty memes and references I can insert into this story?"

    Perhaps "serious and gritty" isn't your style anyway.

    Eh, it's not like those two are mutually incompatible.
    Every had those moments when you already planned out what to write, but simply could not bring yourself to actually write it?
    The middle class in America is already dead, the corpse just hasn't stop twitching yet.

    May it fester and rot, so it may give life anew.
    I'm American enough to blow hundreds of bucks on a whim, but Chinese enough to have enough savings to fund those whims.

    Could be worse.

    ...and that is how Surprise Buttseks happens.

    Try dipping into Rogue, so you can buff your skills and also gain trapfinding. Because you never know when you have encountered a trap and will face the Surprise Buttseks.
    That moment when you realize you have to write something you don't want but the story so far demands it...

    I generally don't do fanfics, ignoring the fact that I'm currently providing 3D models to someone else's star trek fanfic.

    It's also a great way to sneak my contents to SB...
    I finally figured out how to get music to my phone.

    And I need it since I'm gonna be doing a couple of +3 hour drives next week and I did enough long distance driving to know I need music this time around...
    Writing on a word doc is so encouraging, as the page count really gives a sense of progress being made...

    ... but then it turns out that 45 pages only netted 17k words, and there goes all sense of accomplishment.

    Not really, mostly because I fucked up on the pacing and didn't really have that much planned out (which is why it morphed from a parody of the genre to cheap gags at history).

    Perhaps it was a satire, but it wasn't that much of the comedy in the end.

    I guess it was mirroring the severity of my depression at the time, or maybe just much I was scraping the bottom of the barrel. XD

    Actually now that I remembered I might have started partially because of my depression.

    Such is the magic of the internet.

    While we're at it (because answering over multiple forums is just crass), should I know you (sorry I'm terrible at remembering people) and I'm actually quite surprised that anyone would remember me.
    Oh gosh, I gotten to the point where I have to actually plan ahead for my stories.

    Meanwhile, I am having trouble even starting a story.

    I mean, my stories have gotten convoluted to the point where it takes weeks to finish a single segment, so I'm not exactly that much better a shape.

    Another problem I have right now is too many ideas, and not enough time and energy (~20 hours a week is barely enough to pump out more than a couple of thousand words if I'm lucky).
