More Snippets or More Like Yong-sun’s Dad Appreciation’s Post // Part II

Last week I shared some snippets that I wrote during Camp NaNo. As I said back then: I have more! The post was getting a bit too long and considering one of the snippets left is quite long, it was better to split it into two posts. So here we are!

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 he’ll do after graduation. If he even graduates. Because that’s another thing he worries about. Not that his grades are bad, far from it, but one time it’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.

Wow it’s Valentine’s Day what a coincidence asjbdgh

I stopped writing once I got to the confession scene because 1) I won Camp NaNo 2) I’m an awkward bean and so is Yong-sun and I feel everything he’s feeling adbjsh

Hey look it’s me

So the 20k words I wrote during Camp NaNo have a lot of great scenes of Yong-sun’s Dad and?? I love this dork?? Why is he barely present in the earlier parts

Did I mention I love him

I’m super insecure about this paragraph for multiple reasons, one being that it’s personal and it doesn’t feel good enough and the other being that I’m afraid it excludes non-binary people, but I don’t know how to change it?? Help???

Also I changed the actual name to [someone] because spoilers but you can probably guess who it isΒ Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

I really hope there aren’t any typos in these bjshd I was too afraid to check because I’m lazy dsfh If there’s a major error please point it out though because English isn’t my first language so I might not catch it once I reread my draft (don’t worry about being rude I would love you for it). Anyways hope you enjoyed these. Look it’s not all memes!!

  1. I love reading snippets of your WIP SO FREAKING MUCH!!! I hope you continue writing, even if it is extremely personal. I also understand the worry of excluding something and maybe hurting people in the process, but I think you are doing great. You cannot include everything, it’s not possible and I don’t think that anyone would believe it was your intention to exclude non-binary people on purpose. Maybe you will find a way to rewrite the scene, but maybe that particular scene also doesn’t need it? I don’t know either :/

    • THANK YOU SO MUCH KAT ❀️😭 I definitely will, though I haven’t really had much time and energy yet. I need to really start planning and organising better, but I’m on my period now so there’s no point in that lol since my productivity is always very low during that time
      Thank you so much Kat, that makes me feel better ❀️ I’m going to leave it as it is now and just continue writing, and then look at it again once I’m done :)

  2. Hahahahaha oh my god I love Yong-Sun’s dad SO much, these excerpts are so much fun to read, especially the one with the popcorn that made me laugh so much hahaha :)

  3. I’m a new follower, and I just first of all wanted to say hi! And second of all, your writing voice is really strong, and the emotion is raw. Also, his dad is precious! Congrats on writing so much during Camp NaNo, and thanks for sharing these snippets. :)

  5. Ahhh I love his dad and how well you write dialogue :D
    And I think all I noticed was that Snicker should have an “s” at the end (Snickers) if it’s the chocolate! Which is my fave btw when I can’t get my hands on a Cadbury Crunchie. <3 <3
    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you so much ❀️
      Oh woops it’s indeed supposed to be Snickers haha. Thank you for catching that! I don’t think I’ve ever had Cadbury Crunchie, but I love Cadbury and crunchy chocolatey snacks so it sounds delicious!
