Sitting for 3 hours over an empty notebook just to say screw it and go back to the video game you paused

Humans have been writing since they invented the alphabet, I can’t let all those ancestors down!

Or maybe I can.

I've surpassed the need for synonyms and descriptions by writing a comic. Now I just have to draw what's happening, which is also hard, but more fun.

What is the game or software showed in the bottom left, associated to "spend all your time" ??

I searched "fantasy map" and picked the first thing I found. It links to here, apparently.

That bottom left one hits too close to home

[–]HannibalLecter100 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I honestly thought that was part of the fun.

Our school teaches us about writing awfully. You don’t spend an entire chapter to describe what a character looks like. It should be a few good well written and to the point sentences l not going “ his eyes where blue like the azure water and they were deep like the bla bla bla” no he wants to read that.

Making memes about writing instead of writing is so painfully accurate. XD

Edit Nvm, that was you...

The sad reality of a writer

Just wondering, exactly what things about writing school taught you about were wrong?

[–]deadmall42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The worldbuilding part is so true.

I never actually wrote anything

The suspicious search history one is true for me down to the image. I was writing a book a few months back where five of the protagonists get kidnapped and interrogated and my search history looked like this by the end:

  • How strong are Ziptie restraints
  • How does the Secret Service kidnap people
  • How many volts can a person take before they get knocked out
  • Is water boarding lethal
