For years I did poetry and nothing else, pretty much just to do, then I shared an idea with someone and they told me to run with it, so I did. Now I'm a solid ten chapters into a deep story. My characters are coming along and the plot is developing. What else can you ask for as a first time novelist? I could roll some RP I guess but it's not my forte so don't expect too much if it comes to pass. I really want this story to come about so I have little energy for much else, but...I'd try.
This is probably hella sad to some people, but I think that I found the motivation to want to explore outside of my city/province/country more.
I'm using books as motivation.
Libraries, to be more specific. Like, take the Toronto Public Library for example:
TPL is one of the world's busiest urban public library systems, with 100 branches across the city and over 10 million books, movies, and other items to borrow...
over 10 million books, movies, and other items to borrow...
over 10 million books, movies, over 10 million books
can you imagine what I'd do with 10 million books???
I'd never ******** leave. lol I'm serious, I'd never leave. I'd move to Toronto just to be near the library.
I'd be able to run through my Goodreads reading list in one fell swoop, and then some.
I'd be able to look at the brand new books before other libraries, probably. Because Toronto is just the center of everything, ngl.
I'd probably try and get a job at the library just so that I'd never leave the library.
That'd be great. A super power adventure. emotion_awesome It'd be real life anyday.
And idk, man, just not in the greatest mood at the moment - kind of wanting to just wallow and cease to exist and stuff.
