I wanna write one of those fics that an entire fandom knows about, that shows up on everyone’s rec list, that people create artwork for.
You know, I think that’d be nice. But what’s even nicer is creating something that you take pride in - even if no one else likes it. I don’t think anyone should write for other people’s approval, but for themselves.
For me, writing is a way to wind down, to explore; to weave pieces of me and communicate parts of myself with others. For me, writing is about a connection between people - not adulation.
And by no means is adulation not a nice thing - it is. It’s lovely when people enjoy your work, praise it, and want to read it. It’s a self esteem boost - something to hang your hat on.
But for me, my life will never be about how good a writer I am - it will be about how good a physician I am.
A big thanks to everyone still reading my work and for saying such heartwarming things. I don’t even know how to thank each of you for brightening my life so much over this past year. It’s been one heck of a ride and some of you have been there with so much encouragement through the whole thing. And that means so much. It means that in the small ways that you can, you understand me - the way I see the world, the way that I love the characters that I write about.
Don’t ever make your writing be about others; make it a reflection of yourself; something you want to keep coming back to and enjoying.
At least, that’s my philosophy, or at least, what I’ve learned.

I interrupt my normal study schedule to bring you a short snippet from my new life novel.
Step 1 (how apt): Spot food (in desk drawer where you keep your stash)
Step 2: Internal Justification - well… my book did say that the brain uses a lot of glucose…
Step 3: Rationalisation - it’s completely normal to eat 15 Fibre One bars in one day… right? I mean… they’re healthy…
Step 4: Unwrap the food (do this part with great haste)
Step 5: SHOVE FOOD IN MOUTH and use the mastication process as an excuse to read shite online…
Step 6: Repeat at least 10 times a day.
Step 7: Wear stretchy pants.@1 month ago with 6 notes
Today in therapy we talked about why my anger/mood swings are getting worse. I said that that it was because I am “I am surrounded by things that irritate me, like a fucking Alakazam among a bunch of slowpoke’ …cut a long story short I should never underestimate her because she responded "Don’t you think that calm mind is much better than fury attack?" and honestly I just

To KimJ - if you exist here on the Tumblrverse. I just want you to know that my mind is in love with your mind and wants to make brain babies. Can that be arranged?@3 weeks ago with 4 notes
