LoTR Soundtrack Analyses, Anyone?
Ok so i’m experiencing really awful writers block and just don’t feel motivated to write.
So! Instead of agonizing over that, I’m writing up overviews/analyses of the Lord of the Rings soundtrack, something I have done a decent amount of research on. I’m thinking about making it like a series type thing of post, and I’m not quite done with the first one.
Anyways, all this is to ask- would anyone be interested in this?
Also, I am in no way an expert, this is just a hobby :)

hey guys,
i just got my shifts for work from now to the end of the school year. i’m working 10am-5pm Saturdays and 10am-1pm Sundays.
this cuts my writing time basically into a third of what it was. i usually write anytime after 10am on saturdays and sundays, and now really i only have 1pm-4pm to write on sundays and the same on Wednesdays.
so basically, i’ll now only be posting one, maybe two fics a week. some weeks i may be able to write more, but that’s gonna be the usual. i’m sorry about this but i am really excited about this job. stay safe and sending love and hugs to all of you, thanks for understanding.
<3 Maia

... literally I spent ten minutes on that header someone come help me.
My dudes! I do not have school today (cause I don’t have it any Wednesdays but today is different cause I don’t have meetings either)! Therefore, I shall probably be bored or writing all day.
So- I would like to have the most interaction-full day with you guys ever. Come into my ask for literally anything (especially “thoughts on:___” I love those) or even just ramble about your day.
I want to give advice, I want to ramble about Tolkien- basically I’d love it if my ask box was really full!!
Also! After almost four months of writing on here I hav found that I really like talking about writing and my process and my fics soooo... ask me anything you like!! About writing or not, idc.
Here are a whole bunch of ask games just tell me which one you’re asking from (and maybe what color it’s highlighted)!
Fanfic Writer Asks Fandom Ask Memes
Writer Asks Asks for Readers and Writers
Oh! Also, I wanna do another one of those prompt drabble request games soon because they’re fun so that’ll probably be happening in about two weeks?

Do I have a whole bunch of requests to get to?
Yes I do.
Am I ignoring those requests to write very self-indulgent fics?
Yes I am.
Does this make me feel bad that I’m not doing your requests?
Yes it does.
Am I still going to keep doing it?
Yes I am.

No, I’m not teaching myself the Game of Thrones and HTTYD themes and champagne problems on the piano. At the same time. When I don’t even play piano. Why would you think that?

Guess who GOT THE JOB?!?!?!?!?!
Oh wait- I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!
I got the job at the fishing and tackle store, which I’m super excited about!! It pays really well and I’m only legally allowed to work one day a week on weekends so it won’t be too much!!
This is gonna cut down on my writing a little more, so I may only be posting 1-2 fics a week, and maybe not even that, but I’m still really excited!!!

Pardon the sudden sleepover answering spam you’re about to get- I’m trying to make my way through more today.
And just so y’all know I have six prompt drabbles left to do. If yours isn’t answered when I say the last one has been, then the ask box probably ate it 😭.

The Egg-Throwing Story
Because @the-reformed-ringwraith was curious.
So basically my neighborhood used to have a really big 4th of July (independence day) party every year. And there was always an egg-toss competition (I’m a three-time champion, my friend Noah and I are the gods of the egg toss).
And so with an egg toss you just use regular eggs, because it’s way funnier when they break on someone.
But one lady accidentally made them hard boiled, so she gave them to me and my friends, probably assuming that we’d eat them. But we were 11-16 at the time (all my friends are a lot older than me) and complete dumbasses.
And I live on the ocean, and when the tide goes out it’s just mud.
So being idiotic teens/preteens we decided that it would be really cool to see how far we could throw the eggs, and if they would crack in the mud. So we did.
After throwing them we all waded out into the deep mud to see if we could find them, and ended up getting stuck in the mud and had to army-crawl back so that we wouldn’t sink, and ended up very very muddy. We also got yelled at by our parents for a solid thirty minutes.
We also never found the eggs.
So yeah, that’s the story!

Applying to jobs is stressful! I just applied for my first at three different places and wow that is nerve-wracking. But I did it! Yay!
If anyone’s curious the three were a bookstore, a museum, and the fishing and tackle store!!

Just a little life update
So, I go back to school tomorrow (😭). Which means I’ll be a little less active and I won’t be posting fanfiction quite as regularly. I still have a bunch of sleepover stuff to work my way through, and I’ll also go back to posting normal fics. I just wanted to let y’all know so that it’s not weird if I stop posting a drabble every day, because I’m in school for 8+ hours a day with at least 3 hours of homework a night and just don’t have the mental capacity or energy to write during the week.
Anyways, love y’all very much <3
