Have a confession about something you do while writing? Wanna talk about something you feel OOC? Just feel like posting nonsense at a reasonable rate? Then this is the place for you!

My confession is my story ideas are generally all over the place until I just pick something.

Sometimes I am able to build my whole post around a GIF that I want to use.

I also wrote a 4 paragraph post about pizza once. No lie.

I'm probably the first user ever to put more effort into the of his own mooks/underlings than their own main characters.

I write female characters, but often have difficulty doing so at times. Especially when it comes to people hitting on you, which I am getting over.

Maverick is probably my biggest no sell account in concerns to fighting characters/other groups.

My writing in my view is inconsistent. Sometimes it's good, other times it's meh....got a bit of polish on it but not actually good.

I edit a lot. I post something long and it will be almost guaranteed riddled with grammar or sentence errors because I miss things in my brief proofreading.

Characters talk mad sh** sometimes but of course, it doesn't mean much ooc, even if I get "out of hand."

I often listen to video game music while I write that fits well for the scene itself.

I often pay more attention to the music I'm listening than to the whole post. My vibe depends a lot of it.

I usually plan three or four posts ahead while writing one, even though I know it's never going the way I want because people don't think like me.

Sometimes I'll just finish a post and while reading it, I'll decide that the character is better off not existing.

If I had to describe my writing, I'd say "it has been better". Nowadays I try to focus more on the emotional than the words and I prefer to actually build a backstory and a character than being all 'I have powers and pretty words, let's fight!' like I once was.

I despise at least 50% of all canon I built, the other 50% is just lucky that I don't remember it... Or it's a character that I hold/held dear for one or two decent interactions.

That second case is rare. The characters are: Drake Wolf and Atrocity (Sith version).

I find it magical when I see people writing more than four paragraphs and they're all great. I can't even properly write one with enough interesting information!

If I had to pick a favorite topic to RPG about, I'd say space. I have loads of ideas about space and I find myself constantly thinking about why I didn't use that lore to expand CV's canon.

I think I'm a cowardly writer...I love RPing on the defensive, or the run...

All of my female characters start off as female counterparts to my males...

I'm deeply unable to write my characters to harm animals. Even the monstrous/psychotic/psychopathic characters I have bare a reason for them not to harm animals...

I've got this weird thing going for me where whenever I look at any of my things I've written, i hate them and want to improve but am too lazy to and it kills me. I mean, I'm sure they're all fine, but everything I write is shit in my eyes and I want to burn it and start over.

The only male character I've ever written was a genderbent Feral Nova but he was more of a joke than an actual character to RP with. Other than him I've never writtin a male character.

If I can't find a gif for my post, I feel that it's severely incomplete.

Or if I find a gif I really want to use, I'll change my entire post to fit that gif.

Someone once thought I was a woman when I wrote the original version of 'Fraga' who was an alternate universe daughter of my other character, Andres Knightfall. Needless to say, I had good ass laugh responding to his PM, LOL.

Most of my character ideas come from things I've watched or even music I was listening to. I made Abel because I was watching Tim Burton's Batman on Netflix, and after watching Terminator Genesis I want to make a T-800.

It feels natural for a few male characters of mine. The rest, I can just play with the awkwardness or act indifferently.

And then there are character I make who you simply don't hit on.

Females, its like my character should be receptive of it, depending on the person and how it's done, but I as an author....am not.

Out of the seven years I've been here, I can count the number of Rps I've made on one hand.

Rather demanding. None too sure about doing something everyone can be involved. Though I can plan places.

Copy/Paste is your friend,

Depends. I think it generally should be more story reasons as to why you do it. If it happens, it should be interesting.
