Waggish Writer Week 13 Reflections

Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit Waggish Writer.

Week 13 has seen me scribbling away at two ideas, Misventures and Mundane Magi. What makes the pieces slightly easier to come out is letting go of standards and rules.


What I've forgotten as a writer is that the first draft is to get the idea on the paper. The finer details can be smoothed and refined. The main base of the story is what counts the most. Some of the greatest writers take liberties with the English language, and people still read them.


I am happy to say that my side venture in the world of writing is looking promising. I will wait until things are more official before I shout to the world my victory shout. Sufficient to say that my words are reaching the universe. The universe merely doesn't know it.


Besides my own creative ventures, I try to support other creators. The Fandom Effect, run by my boyfriend's friend, is an effort that I've enjoyed listening to the first episode and in the process of listening to episode two. I assist my boyfriend with a Hyrule-based DND campaign as a soundboard and scribe. I also have a friend that I do my best to chat with once a week. He is a very creative individual who is on the autism spectrum. He invests a lot of thinking and details into his ideas. As a creator, I am enthusiastic to listen to them and slightly disappointed when his attention shifts gears.


However, my boyfriend pointed out that it is how we all are. We have ideas we want to flow with, meaning that some projects that we've have started on gets left to the side burner or back burner. If anything, this moment is a lesson to myself: be kind to fellow creators as you wish fellow creators to treat you. It is a slight take of the Golden Rule, but it can apply in any setting. Not everyone may follow the rule, but it is something we can strive to achieve one day at a time.


Well, I'm off to scribble some more at my ideas. Check out my Story Scribbles if you're curious what mischief I'm up to. Have a wonderful day. : )
