My WIP As Incorrect Quotes And Memes // What Do You Mean I Could Use This Time To Write Instead THIS IS A LOT MORE FUN AND LESS STRESSFUL OK

As I’m pretty close to finishing my current WIP, what better way to spend my time than making a ‘incorrect quotes’ post? ‘Actually finishing the thing’, you say? Pff don’t be silly!

Also I guess you can say there are kind of spoilers in here, especially for the main romance but? 1) honestly the main romance is probably obvious for the reader once you start the book 2) who knows if this ever even gets published? 3) if it DOES get published who will remember this post 4) I wanted to include these quotes/memes ok pls let me

OH! If you’re wondering where some of these are coming from… I mean you could ask but there’s a 9/10 chance I have no idea as I just looked at tumblr and the like and they often don’t cite a source so sorry sdkj I only know the John Mulaney and the memes (though to be fair maybe the ones I don’t know are memes too?? who knows) But if you really want to know I’m sure that if you google it you’ll find it? That’s how I found out lots of times

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.

Drew: looking back, I have no regrets.

Yong-sun: You should.

Yong-sun: I would like to propose…

Drew: *eyes widens*

Yong-sun: …an idea.

Drew: *disappointed* oh.

Someone: are you nervous?

Yong-sun and Hye-su: About what? But yeah.

Hye-su: I have edge.

Reyna: you really don’t. You are literally the most wide eyed person I ever seen, you have the face of a lamb.

Drew: I like you

Yong-sun: Unrealistic. Unbelievable. Lies. False.

Reyna: I am very small, and I have no money.

Reyna: so you can imagine the kind of stress I’m under.

Hye-su is also very small but she knows how to save money, meanwhile Reyna:

Drew: well, I guess you could say that “I’ve fallen for you”

Yong-sun: you just fell down seven flights of stairs, how are you even alive-

Reyna: if you had ten chocolate cookies and someone takes half of them away, what will they have?

Drew: a broken hand.

Drew: Yong-sun is on holiday with his parents in Seoul so while he’s gone I’m gonna cut the sleeves off of all my shirts

Hye-su: why???

Drew: he’s pretty much 85% of my impulse control

Yong-sun’s dad: I’m gonna do it.

Yong-sun: no please.

Yong-sun’s dad: I’m- I’m gonna.

Yong-sun: DAD

Yong-sun’s dad:

Yong-sun:

Yong-sun’s dad: YEET.

basically the popcorn scene if Yong-sun’s mom hadn’t woken up

Reyna: oh so when crows remember people who wronged them and hold grudges, it’s “intelligent” and “really cool”.

Reyna: but when I do it I’m “petty” and “need to let it go.”

Reyna: how’s the most beautiful person in the world doing today?

Hye-su: I don’t know how are yo-

Drew: *from across the room* I’M DOING GREAT THANKS.

Drew: I ain’t talking.

Reyna: we have ways of making people talk *cuts a piece of cake*

Drew: can I have some?

Reyna: cake is for talkers.


Drew: When have I done anything rash or irresponsible?

Yong-sun: I keep a list. it’s alphabetised.

Yong-sun: are you flirting with me?

Drew: have been for the past year thanks for noticing

basically THE MEME that sums up the main romance dsnjbgh

Yes I made my own meme because I’m extra like that

Drew: *about the Colosseum* it’s kind of underwhelming :/

Hye-su: 

Hye-su: time to die

* not an incorrect quote, Drew literally says that and this is basically Hye-su’s face I know this is technically ‘polite cat’ but honestly it also looks like its screaming on the inside??

There’s a good chance I might do a part two at some point and there’s DEFINITELY a John Mulaney-themed one on the way, but this is it for now before I get carried away dsjbg I just really love incorrect quotes ok?

Anyway I hope this was a fun way for you to get to know my characters a little better? Also I’m honestly thinking of turning this into a tag? So if you want to do this consider yourself tagged. The rules are very simple:

💛 Thank the person who tagged you
💛 Credit the creator of this tag and link back to this post so I can get to know your characters better + IT’S FUN I LOVE INCORRECT QUOTES SO MUCH
💛 Use already existing quotes/memes/whatever or make your own memes like I did (using… already existing memes… but still)

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 is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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!!

The Weekly Hufflepuff #70 // I’M A FREE ELF also 21 now ahhhh

Exams are over and though I’m still waiting on one grade I’m like 99% sure I passed it so guess what

I’m really trying not to think of the fact that I should look for an internship soon hahaha *help me*

It’s been a while since my last wrap up. Last time I had just started Autoboyography – by now of course I finished it and it was beautiful I still haven’t written a review because 1) what are words 2) exams 3) i’m exhausted 4) words???

Seriously I have no idea how to formulate my thoughts. Which is fun because meanwhile I have read other books I want to review but guess what!! Words?? I don’t have any! Okay dramatics aside I think I will be able to review at least some of them, we’ll see. I’m really trying to listen to my body and not push myself to much, so it’s possible that not all of the books I want to review will actually be reviewed, but we’ll see.

I’ve also read Tash Hearts Tolstoy, Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead and Leah on the Offbeat and I loved all of them very much. I’m still very emotional about the latter two (though Tash was a lot of fun as well!) and uhh hopefully review to come?? I really do want to review them but we’ll see what happens. Oh! I’ve mentioned it in other postsbefore but in case you missed those: Autoboyography and Tash Hearts Tolstoy are up for free on Riveted this month! There’s no catch, you just need an account and then you can read a new selection of free books each month.

Oh and I started I Was Born For This yesterday! I’m not that far in yet but I like it so far.

Oh boy it’s been a while so a lot happened but my memory is terrible so we’ll see. I’m in the mood for some bullet points so let’s go with that

💛 I almost dragged my literature teacher (you may recall that I had to read an islamophobic, sexist and homophobic book and that my teacher loves this book) on my literature exam as we had to write a review (unexpectedly!! the entire term all the teachers were like: we’re not going to teach you how to review literature/film/art but guess what!! my literature teacher lied!!) on the book and I legit started to write something along the lines of ‘islamophobes would definitely enjoy this book but if you’re a little bit smart and know something about Islam you wouldn’t and then I realised that I was calling the person responsible for my grade islamophobic and stupid adbgsdh Like she deserved that drag but this woman is super petty and I needed to pass so that I didn’t have to reread that stupid book. But I did politely ‘drag’ her in my survey on the class, where I criticised the class itself (we’re really going to study one book, by a white straight cis man who is also islamophobic, sexist and homophobic. All she said about it was that she thought he was none of those things. That was in the first class, before anyone of us had started the book and she wanted us to form our own opinions. Then she never asked after those opinions) I also mentioned the homophobic comments because what she said was not okay!! (she read a homophobic line from the book as an example of ‘humour’ in the book and described another author as ‘actively homosexual’ like did y’all know i was passively bisexual apparently so!!) I really hope something will be done but I don’t have much hope. At least I said something.

💛 I had my exams and so far passed with flying colours?? So yeah studying my ass off was worth it! Sorta. Did I mention I’m exhausted

💛 I saw Love, Simon again and loved it even more this time around which I didn’t think was possible but here we are

💛 It was my birthday but I keep forgetting that I’m now 21 and keep calling myself 20. But hey that’s progress because before my birthday I would sometimes call myself 18 and that’s very very wrong

💛 I caved and bought a Nintendo Switch with my birthday money because LET’S GO PIKACHU. A NEW MAIN POKEMON GAME NEXT YEAR. A NEW ACE ATTORNEY GAME (when though??). For now I got Mario Oddysey because my mom was like ‘you should buy a game or what is the point’ and she had a point there. It’s been a long time since I played games like that but it’s so much fun?? Incredibly frustrating and I’ve been cursing like a sailor but fun!

💛 I also was given books of course! I’m too lazy to take a picture so here’s a list: Starfish (because I needed a physical copy), Leah on the Offbeat, The Brightsiders, I Was Born For This, Children of Blood and Bone, Ace of Shades, A Thousand Perfect Notes and Quests for Glory (The School for Good and Evil #4)

me this summer

💛 There was an event at the museum where I work so I took my best friend with me and uhhh it was basically a sitcom episode sdfbj It’s a long story but it involves me running away from tour guides (colleagues that I had never met before and hopefully never will again), them seeing me both times, my friend cursing my lack of sneakiness and my friend who’s not interested in art practically running towards an art work because I told her someone had slashed a knife into it years ago and losing me in the progress. Basically it was a mess but it was hilarious.

I probably forgot some stuff (a lot of stuff?) but uhh these are the highlights? I think? They’re the ones I remember anyway. I did struggle with my mental health again but as I’m feeling better today I don’t really want to talk about that.

I can’t believe I’m actually adding a writing section!! Of course I haven’t really been able to write thanks to school and exams, but yesterday I was suddenly hit by a burst of inspiration for a WIP I’ve been stuck on for a very long time now. It’s one of my very first WIPs (I kind of count it as the second one since it’s the second one I actually sort of finished (as in I finished the first book and started the second but then started to rewrite the first one. And then started to rewrite the first one AGAIN)) and I hated the plot. Absolutely hated it. It’s pretty much a Buffy the Vampire Slayer rip off (I was like 12 or 13 I didn’t realise it at the time ok), full of plot holes and a lot of stuff just doesn’t make sense. Oh and horrible tropes that I can’t stand now. I was ready to just let it go, except I loved my kids. I actually wrote a post about this last year

So a while ago I sorta got a lil bit of inspiration already, but there wasn’t really much there yet. But yesterday? Out of nowhere something came to mind and now I have almost three pages in Word with ideas and I’m PUMPED. I’m not going to write it yet as I want to work on my current WIP and finish that one first (and maybe write the sequel first too) but I’m just so excited?? I’m so happy I found a plot that so far works for my kids.

me yesterday

For years I called it The Chosen Ones but my current working title is ‘the not chosen ones’ because they’re no longer chosen lol. There’s still a lot I need to figure out but that’s okay. I’ve got something and that already makes me so happy. It’s VERY different from the original, which is weird but since I hated the original I’m more than okay with that.

This is the current blurb:

Rose Clark vividly remembers the night her parents were murdered – and now it seems their killer is back. Determined to catch the killer herself, Rose finds herself caught up in something she would’ve never dreamed of.

It’s very short but I like it so far. I’ve never written a blurb for the previous plot but basically it was about two teenagers (one of them being Rose) who were ‘chosen’ to prevent the devil from returning to earth. Over the years things already changed a lot from the original WIP, but now??? I barely recognise it lol. But it’s good because for the first time in a long time I’m excited to work on this WIP again!

Your WIP In Gifs Tag!

me: *has no energy or time to write because of essays and stress*
me: when you DO find the time and energy you have to write your review ok!!
me: ok
me: *ends up writing this post instead*

uhhhh so yeah i have no excuse?? This idea popped into my head last week but I had no time and energy to blog (thus why I disappeared, which I kind of saw happening because once I start to stress I just,, drop everything else in my life and focus on that one thing which is usually school which I really hate and want to change about myself because I love blogging) so now that I finally did have time and energy?? Yeah I wanted to put it into a post I was really excited about. That said, I really need to write that review because the book came out on Thursday and I feel like a bad blogger woops

ANYWAY. I looked around the Internet to see if this didn’t exist yet and couldn’t find anything so here we are! This tag is fairly simple: you answer the questions with gifs. So let’s get started!

The Rules

💛 Thank the person who tagged you
💛 Credit the creator of this tag (me!) and link back to this post so I can find out allll about your WIPs!
💛 Try to limit the amount of gifs you use per question – I’d say maybe stick to five or less but I’m not the boss of you

Sum up your WIP in 4 gifs

 

 

Bonus:

This… is not just an excuse for me to use gay gifs… why would you think that…

Time to introduce your main characters!

Yong-sun

an accurate representation of Yong-sun during senior year

Basically Yong-sun is a combination of Chidi and Amy

Drew

this gif is PERFECT because drew likes to think he’s all tough and ready to fight but in reality he’s just a smol cute bean who couldn’t hurt a fly

the true otp of my wip: drew + food

Reyna

fun fact i picture cierra ramirez as reyna so double win

if you don’t watch b99 first of what are you doing with your life y are you even reading this post just leave my blog and go watch b99 ok second the context of this gif is that she’s told to be careful because that sauce is hot

Reyna is that friend who will immediately text you a ‘like my post’ message

Hye-su

Hye-su most of the time

Hye-su when someone says things like ‘that’s not art’ or ‘i could do that’

How would your main character react in a crisis?

Actually this is Yong-sun all the time so

If you were to meet your main characters, how would you react?

And if you were to meet your antagonist?*

* No I did not include these questions so I could do this meme?? Don’t be ridiculous

Is there any romance in your WIP? How would you sum it up in gifs?

I mean,, this is it. For almost the entire book. At first the flirting is subtle, but then,, Romeo and Juliet gets quoted and the other person is still like,,

How do other characters feel about this ship?

How do you want people to react reading your WIP?

DESCRIPTION OF MY WIP

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.

As I said before in the All Hallows Write Tag and the Winter is Here Write Tag, this summary is not complete, but I really like what I have so far. What you need to know besides this summary: there are two other main characters, Reyna and Hye-su. They are Yong-sun’s other friends. One day I’ll write the perfect summary that also includes them.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

If there is a couple in your WIP, what are their plans for Valentine’s Day? And if there is no couple in your WIP, is there someone your main character would like to spend Valentine’s Day with?

There is a couple in my WIP, but they get together later on and I guess it’s kinda spoilery? So I’ll be a bit vague. One of them would be incredibly cheesy and get a huge bouqet of roses, a huge bear and chocolates, while the other just gets embarrassed and throws a more personal gift at his head*

* Obviously not literally

Who has no shame about going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day alone?

Reyna. 100% Reyna. She has no shame when it comes to a lot of things and just generally has this ‘idgaf’ attitude. Not that she doesn’t give one at all, but definitely not about Valentine’s Day.

One of your characters requests a song on the radio for their crush! Which song and for which character would they pick it?

I had trouble choosing between Reyna and Drew, but Drew wouldn’t actually dare to request a song on the radio (though he’d pretend he would)- he’d just blast it himself out of his crush’ window. Reyna on the other hand would definitely request a song on the radio and she’d pick Mary Lambert’s I’d Be Your Wife. And who’d they pick it for?

Is there a character who would organise an Anti-Valentine’s Day party?

I can see Reyna throw a Galentine’s party, which can sort of be an Anti-Valentine’s Day party I guess. Though considering she’d invite her crush it would kind of still be a Valentine’s Day party

Reyna @ herself

What romantic gesture would swoon your main character?

It really doesn’t take much tbh – like one rose and the boy is a blushing mess

an accurate representation of Yong-sun

Which character would buy a bunch of red roses and hand them out to strangers on the street, just to make their day?

Hye-su without a doubt. She’s just smol cinnamon roll

What are your main character’s favourite Valentine’s movies? (Note: Valentine’s movies don’t have to be romantic!)

Okay so my WIP takes place in 2015 but can we just go to the future* and say Love, Simon because I can’t think of any other Valentine’s movie that Yong-sun would like

* I wish I could just go to the future pls I need to see this movie now

Who is ready for the February 15th, just to get all the chocolate on sale?

Without a doubt: Drew. Boy loves food, especially candy and especially chocolate

an accurate representation of Drew

Is there a character who never spends Valentine’s Day alone aka always has some sort of date?

Nope – unless we count some of their parents lol

Bonus: Create a Valentine’s Day aesthetic for one or several of your characters!

So uhh I got a bit carried away and created a Valentine’s Day aesthetic for all four of my main characters haha. In order: Yong-sun, Drew, Hye-su and Reyna

Thank you again Kat for creating such a fun tag! Every time I do one of these I get to know my characters a little better and love them even more than I already did, so of course I’m grateful for that!
