My Current Writing Ideas/Projects That Are All Gay Duh + Aesthetics!

I’ve thought of talking about all the writing ideas/projects going around my brain for a while now. Then I thought: why not talk about all of my LGBTQIAP+ WIPs/ideas for Pride! Then I realised that’s all of my ideas ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

I’ve Been Working On This For Almost Two Years and It’s STILL Unnamed

You may be familiar with this one as it’s my main WIP right now and I’m hoping to finish it this year *fingers crossed*. I’ve written a blurb for it for a few writing tags, which is not complete as it does not mention the other two main characters, Reyna and Hye-su, but it’s the best I got right now.

Yong-sun An is worried about a lot of things, but at the top of his list? The future. Worried his anxiety will get in the way of everything he does, he has no clue what heโ€™ll do after graduation. If he even graduates. Because thatโ€™s another thing he worries about. Not that his grades are bad, far from it, but one time itโ€™s bound to go wrong, right?

Meanwhile, his not-best friend (except he is his best friend) Drew suddenly starts to act weird. Yong-sun has no idea how to help, but he has a feeling that it has to do with the mysterious text messages Drew has been getting.

So yeah none of my four kids are straight, Hye-su has two dads (one of them bisexual) and Drew’s aunt isn’t straight either

The Unnamed Sequel to the Unnamed Contemporary

HAHA YES. I HAVEN’T FINISHED MY UNNAMED CONTEMPORARY BUT I ALREADY GOT IDEAS FOR A SEQUEL HAHA HELP ME

So basically this unnamed sequel to my unnamed contemporary* follows Hye-su going to art school, but her insecurities and anxiety are getting the best of her. She feels like she doesn’t belong, that she’s not good enough and she gets major art block, resulting in her friends taking her on a road trip. It has an f/f relationship that originally would have sailed in the prequel, but I didn’t like the idea of not really seeing their relationship develop as the prequel is told from Yong-sun’s pov. Honestly I’m tempted to give Reyna and Drew their own books as well, but I have no clue yet what they’d be about

Anyway recently I got the silly idea to finish the prequel after my exams (June 19th), outline this one and then make it my Camp NaNo project what is wrong with me

* That’s what I’m gonna name them. I’m just gonna stick with that. Just wait and see

Gay Superheroes Squad

Plot?? What is that?? I DON’T KNOW BUT I LOVE MY SUPERHERO KIDS. All I know is that a bunch of kids suddenly find themselves with superpowers, eventually they all find each other and decide they want to use their powers for good and as the working title gives away they’re all LGBTQIAP+. I’m not sure yet if they’re only going to fight homophobia, racism, sexism etc. or if they’re also just going to fight general bad guys. Oh and they go to a retired superhero (who I picture as Isaiah Mustafa) to train them and such, and they also meet his husband who’s a healer (and who I picture as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson). I haven’t really worked on this yet, though I did write a first chapter (yes even though I have no plot) from Jules’ pov because he’s my fave*

Also here’s an aesthetic for Jules because did I mention I love him??

Fun fact: I picture Keiynan Lonsdale as Jules, and Alberto Rosende as Jaimie

* I don’t like to play faves when it comes to my characters but?? I love this boy so much??

Sjakoo Retelling

I actually got this idea from a blogpost last year in whichย I talked about story ideas for books set in The Netherlandsย – I got more than one idea from this post actually, but this is the only one that I actually have a plot for. I’ve basically been obsessed with Sjakoo since I was a little kid, but you’re probably wondering ‘Michelle who is Sjakoo??’ Sjakoo is said to have been a master criminal in ย 18th century Amsterdam and to have had a fort with secret passages. Most of his story is a myth, but I just love the idea of a YA retelling about Sjakoo, living in 18th century Amsterdam, becoming a criminal, starting a gang and creating his fort. I haven’t found anything that indicates he wasn’t straight butย ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

Short Stories

I’ve been meaning to write short stories for the next two aesthetics since I made them… last year?? the year before that?? who knows time is a concept. Anyway, I’m lazy and forgetfulย ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

Two girls run a bakery together and fall in loveย 

I can’t say much about this since I don’t really have much of a plot?? It’s sweet and soft and justย ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ ย One day I may write it

It’s like the Swan Princess but instead she’s a unicorn

When the clock strikes midnight the beloved princess turns into a unicorn

Again I have no plot but when I made this aesthetic I apparently thought of the princess having a girl gang as well? Anyway, of course the curse* can only be broken** with a true love’s kiss so this Unicorn Princess needs a princess.

* Though is it REALLY a curse to turn into a unicornย ๐Ÿค”
** Does it really need to be broken though like it’s not that bad to turn into a unicorn during the night?? Just lie down and get some sleep girl

I actually do have more projects lol (that are semi-active, meaning I still think about them/plan on writing them one day). One is one of my first stories, that I tried rewriting a few years ago but got stuck because I no longer like the plot. I actually stumbled across an aesthetic I made for it back then while I was putting together this post and?? Suddenly?? Inspiration struck?? I STILL don’t have a full, better plot that is not a frickin’ Buffy the Vampire Slayer rip-off but!!! things are happening inside my brain!! The other three projects are kiiiiinda a secret as in I’m terrified someone mean will come along and steal my idea(s)

but maybe one day I feel confident enough to share them!

What are you currently working on? Or planning to write? Are any (or all of them) LGBTQIAP+? Let me know in the comments!

  1. The aesthetics are gorgeous as always and I love all your ideas. I giggled out loud when I read the flowershop scene hahaha I sincerely hope no one will steal your ideas. I am shuddering at the thought that anyone would take Arcadia away from me!!! I guess that’s why I share it on Wattpad and not on the blog. At least there you can’t copy and paste haha but I guess it doesn’t save the idea as a whole …

    • Thank you Kat! Ahhh I’m so happy someone finds that scene as funny as I do haha. Yeah I feel you! I’m always so wary with what I share and don’t share. I think most people in our little community would never do that, but I’m always so worried that this one mean person would show up and just,,, steal our ideas?? If anyone steals Arcadia from you I will fight them that’s a promise

      • Hahaha, I think my blog chronicles the development of Arcadia pretty well. I also have dated emails and such as proof if I ever need to fight someone, but obviously we can all only hope that it will never be necessary.

  2. I love this post so much!!! I’m inspired to write all about my own WIPs now but I’ve always been so um and arrrr about my story.
    Your aesthetics are amazing too! HOW DO YOU DO IT!?
    EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS POST IS SO PURE AND FLAWLESS AND I CAN’T WAAIT TO READ YOUR STORIES AND I’M FREAKING OUT BECAUSE YOU’RE WONDERFUL!!!

  3. OMG!! THESE ARE ALL ABSOLUTELY AMAZING STORIES AND I LOVE THEM!! THESE HAVE TO BE REAL STORIES! PLEASE WRITE THEM SOON! And your aesthetics are just like on point. HOW???? Excuse me while I go cry tears of joy.

    • THANK YOU ๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ I want to write ALL OF THEM but ughhh exams. The ‘fun’ part is that once my exams are over I probably won’t feel like writing anymore ๐Ÿ˜‚ I always get super motivated when I’m busy with school but then afterwards I’m just too tired. Hopefully not this time though! *fingers crossed* Haha I actually wrote a post on how I make aesthetics! https://thewritinghufflepuff.wordpress.com/2017/08/17/how-to-make-aesthetics-101-by-moi/

      • NOOOOOO!!!! Exams are literally torture. Aww thatโ€™s so sad ๐Ÿ˜ญ but I can relate! I always feel like that as well! I hype myself up and get excited to write but problems come up! Like my pen being too far. And my bed feels really nice right now. I hope you write it this time! *Crosses toes cos Iโ€™m just weird like that*๐Ÿคž OOOHHH WOW. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I MUST GO READ IT NOW. THANK YOU!!! xxโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ

      • They areeeee ๐Ÿ˜ญ Thankfully they’re over now so I’m just trying to recover from them now lol. Haha yes exactly! Thanks, I hope you’ll be able to write too! Though I completely get those problems :P

      • I know righttt?!?! YAY!! Thatโ€™s good at least! Have some chocolate and pineapples to make you feel better! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ I hope you write too and we donโ€™t fall to those problems! xx โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Maybe I’ve asked you this before, but have you heard of/read Princess & Princess (I THINK that’s what it’s called). There’s a princess in a tower and the person who comes to rescue her is another princess who’s a person of color with an adorable haircut and the first princess is adorably chubby and I’m pretty sure they fall in love and it’s queer as all anything โ™ฅ

    • Yes I love Princess Princess! They do fall in love and it’s so pure and ahhhh I’ve never written a post on it as I read it during a blogging slump, but I definitely need to (though I should probably reread it first because I barely remember anything haha)

  5. Jules’ aesthetic is wonderfulness!!!!! I love it so much. I’m sort of shipping your bakery story as 2 Broke Girls fanfiction though. Maybe just because I love Max. But Caroline is the actual worst, so idk maybe not. XD

  6. “Plot?? What is that?? I DONโ€™T KNOW BUT I LOVE MY SUPERHERO KIDS. ”

    Lol. So true, though. I would definitely read these.

  7. MICHELLE?! HOW do you have so many incredible writing projects and how come I haven’t read them just yet?! Everything sounds so, so good and let’s be honest, you are the QUEEN of aesthetics. I get it though about being scared to share your projects, I am terrified of that as well… let’s hope that never happens though, and no one can tell a story the way you can, anyway :D <3

    • Ahhhh thank you so much Marie โค Haha wellll most of these are barely written if at all so ๐Ÿ˜‚
      Yeah that’s true, there’s a lot more to a story then just a plot point, but of course it would still really suck! but yeah let’s hope no one will ever steal our ideas :) โค

  9. Your aesthetics are LOVELY I’m super excited for all of these but especially Gay Superheroes Squad and omg Keiynan Lonsdale ?? That sounds so perf. I love doing facecasts for my own writing. I have several stories going on as well, all with LGBTQIAP+ characters. One I’m really focusing on lately is a sci-fi alt earth story with a bisexual main character who will have a lesbian LI. I definitely need to set aside some time to do aesthetics because UGH my heart @ pretty things.

    Do you listen to music that inspires specific stories or have playlists for your stories? Having the right music on in the background really helps me focus when I’m writing and I love when certain stories just have bands and songs that /are/ that story.

    • WordPress decided to delete this comment from my notifications rippp. Anyway thank you! Ohhh your WIP sounds great! Making aesthetics for your writing is a lot of fun and honestly has helped me a lot when it comes to finding inspiration or just getting to know the story/characters better. I definitely recommend it :)

      I do! I love finding songs that just fit the story/characters so well and listening to them while writing just pumps me up :)

    • Okay so turns out WordPress did NOT delete this from my notifications and I just jumped to conclusions waaaay to quickly before actually using my eyes properly ๐Ÿ˜‚ In my defense WordPress does that to me a lot though
