Where Camellias Blossom
Worldbuilding snippet
The Academy is the place where people who can use magic go to learn to control it, and they also get their formal education there. It's divided by sections (the equivalent to educational levels) and those sections in grades and groups.
Kids enter at age 6 and they graduate at 16. Afterwards, they can start to learn to work either at a profession that requires magic (like a mage) or a normal one where they don't necessary need to, but could use it in a practical way for it.

Heads up 7 up
Thanks for the tag @blindthewind and @goblingraveyard!!
This is from that self indulgent fic I said a time ago i wanted to do. I started it, and have been thnking about continuing it like a chapter a month or so like a writing exercise or something. Or just because I want to xD
But why a pen? Noel didn't understand this decision of his grandfather and the strange hiding place of the object, as if it were a treasure, puzzled him more. Was it some kind of lucky charm, perhaps? It didn't make a lot of sense even like this.
However, he had no doubt about something: that pen must have been special to his grandfather. So special that he decided to leave it to him. If so, he didn't need any more reasons to keep it and treasure it, even if it wasn't even good for writing.
I'll tag @mel-writes-with-her-dragons and @crystallized-ink with no pressure owo)

30. Thank you for participating in this challenge! Final question: what is your favourite part of writing overall?
Just writing, I guess xD I love to see my plots come into reality when I write them. Writing relaxes me and stresses me at the same time hahaha😆 but overall is so fun I can't stop doing it. I also love to share them with people and get feedback, even if I'm super anxious when I do, because that's just why I write, to share it with someone someday. The reaffirmation I get when someone reads my writing, even if they don't have a good review of it, is still pretty important to me. Like, Idk who said it, but there was an author who said something between the lines of "I don't care if my readers don't like my story as long as they finish the book" and I feel that way too.
It's easier to talk about the things I like about writing cause it's basically everything lol plot development, worldbuilding, character desings, themes, developing arcs, etc. If anything the only thing I don't like about writong is editing but mostly because I suck at it and have a hard time looking for errors in my own writing. Even if other people point them out for me, I may struggle to see why that is a problem unless they're very specific about it and explain it in detail. Still, writing is super fun and I appreciate the feedback.
Thank you for following my answers to this challenge!! And thank you to @chazzawrites for coming up with it, this was really fun to do!! owo)/

Day 29.- How much have you written this month? Are you happy with your progress?
I haven't had the chance because of school projects, exams and such, but I did manage to advance on one of my fics, as well as on the outline for one of my wips!! I have been drawing as well. It's not a lot, but hey, it's better than nothing, and I like where the three stories are heading towards.
I'm about to reach a major plot point in the fic, while in the comic a small plot twist that I've been craving to share is just around the corner. For the wip, I have more or less all of the plot points ready and I know the story from beginning to end -in a very superficial manner- so now I'm working of filling up the gaps between them to put it all toghether.
Slowly but steady, making progress day by day uwu

I saw your tags on my sparring post! Remember, while swords aren't that heavy, your character will still be holding them up for a while. After a few minutes, you start to feel it in your arms and shoulders. You said your oc wasn't fit. That doesn't really matter, depending on how long they've been using their sword. It gets wayyyyyy less heavy after you've trained/used it for a few weeks. So basically, if they aren't fit at the start, it might be difficult, but if your oc has been using one for a while, it'll be much easier, even if they aren't super fit.
Omg thank you so much for reaching out and for your input!!! I'll keep that in mind while writing 😄
I don't think a lot of my oc's have swords, but this one in particular has had one since the very beginning. It got tricky cause then I thought that maybe a shield fit him more with his personality, but there's stuff I want to do with the sword (and it's kinda a pretty important plot point), so I changed it and made him carry both. He's gotta work on that stamina now xD
I wonder if is kinda like a bow and arrow? I practiced archery a little bit a while back and the bow was so more heavy that I first thought, but the more I used it the less I felt the weight even tho my body isn't fit at all 🤔

I missed a day yesterday apparently Dx I'm doing this two for today to catch up.
Also apparently I can't read and didn't see that day 25 and 26 are different because the latter only has like one (1) extra word
Day 27.- What’s your favourite thing about the writeblr community?
Probably that gave me the realization that hey! There's more people out there doing stories like me!! They also have really intriguing and developed worlds!! We share the same struggles with writing, and we can give tips to one another!! Is just like a cozy feeling, knowing that there's pwople out there who love creating stories like me.
Besides that, and maybe tjis is more a Tumblr thing than a writeblr community thing, everyone feels so reachable? Like, if I want to talk more about sonething I can just go and do it. If I want to ask about stuff I can just do it. The authors here are very likely to respond to me if I reach out to them. It makes it feel very close and friendly, I guess 😄
And 28.- What do you think could be improved about the writeblr community?
I haven't been here long enough, so nothing really comes to mind. My interactions so far have been really nice and good, and I haven't seen nor heard anything resembling some type of toxicity or negativity. Maybe I'm just still too new here, or maybe that part is really small, I don't know. Anyways, I'm sure more people have things to say about this, so I'll try to keep an eye out for that.

Writing Tag game
Thanks for the tag @mel-writes-with-her-dragons!! The question is:
What is your favourite "writing memory"? Is there any scene in particular that you really really enjoyed writing for whatever reason? Please put some excerpts if there is, I'd love to read them!!
It was the day I finished the outline for one of my biggest projects. I had been working on that tuing fir YEARS easily and couldn't find a way to complete that left me satisfied, but that day I managed to do it.
And I was SO HAPPY like jfc I DID IT!!!! YEAH!!!!! It was lso one of the first outlines I managed to finish so add there the extra serotonin!!!!!
..............AAAnd then I decided I didn't like it and changed the whole fricking worldbuilding, so I had to re-do the whole thing again. However, I'm still very proud of that version that I managed to get done, and just of the fact that I got it done. And at least I used it to get to know the characters and their arcs more or less. The version 3.0 of that outline is still very very rough, but it's also done, so y'know, as a plantser I could totally use it still.
My question is:
If you could get a visual adaptation (live action series, cartoon, movie, etc) of one of your wips, which one would it be and in what format would you like to see it?
I'll tag @the-writing-avocado @goblingraveyard @crystallized-ink and @petrichorsis with no pressure!!

Day 24.- Tag a writeblr whose character/s you love
I have to say I like the characters of all of the wirteblrs I follow. Some of them are really intriguing, some are super fun to read about, and all of them just have their own charm.
Like I said before I consider characters a bit more important in a story than plot of worldbuilding, so I love to see so many interesting characters in the wips of people😊

You've been visited by the random OC question fairy! :D ~☆
What influences your character's morality more - their own moral code, or the moral code of the people around them?
Yay, thank you for the ask!! I'll go birefly with the main characters from both of my current wips that I've introduced already:
- Roberto gets influenced by other people. He's very much about following social rules, so his morality is based on that as well. He sometimes gets in internal conflicts when his gut tells him otherwise.
- Joel follows his own moral code. If he thinks something is right or that he needs to do something, no matter what people around him will say, he'll follow trough. His morality is based on most social standards, tho.
- Tetsuya has his own moral code, and will break social ones when he thinks is necessary. When not, he'll try to find a middle ground so everyone involved gets more or less satisfied.
- Liu follows his own moral compass, always. No matter what, no matter when. That's the result of growing up alone, it seems.
Thanks again for the visit!!

Day 23.- Tag a writeblr you love seeing on your dash
@petrichorsis is one that I recently followed!! Wether is writing related posts or normal, daily life or meme posts, I like his content in general. They have a calm vibe to them that may be related to his profile picture xD
Some of his wips are really interesting, like The Canticle of Flies, specially in the premise, and he just seems like an overall nice guy.
We haven't really interacted a lot, but hopefully we can on the future owo)b

Writing Questions Tag game
Thanks for the tag @petrichorsis!! These are my answers:
-When you write, do you write the entire first draft and then edit, or do you reread and edit as you go along?
I first write the entire thing and then I edit it, but if I'm in a block for whtever reason, I may go back and edit even without finishing it. If I'm honest I'm kinda bad at editing cause I don't realize what can be improved and what is a misstep in my own writing unless it's pretty obvious, so most of the time I need someone else to point it out for me.
-Do you struggle with dialogue or descriptions more, or are you pretty good at both?
I think I'm good at both? If anything, I struggle with descriptions when it's about feelings. Sometimes I wish I was writing a visual novel to portray better the amount of feels, positive or negative, a character is having, cause I can't find the right words.
-Do you have a favorite author(/s) who's style you try to emulate or otherwise draw influence from, or is your style all on your own?
I definitely draw influence from Eiichiro Oda's worldbuilding and exposition, and I always try to remember hiw Jules Verne does descriptions while I write. Besides that, the rest of ny style hs mostly been crafted trhought trial and error of what I like and what I thinks works.
Now these are the questions for the people I'll tag:
1- What do you enjoy writing more, protagonists or antagonists? Or you enjoy them equally?
2- Where do you start when you begin to develop a story, with the characters, plot, worldbuilding, etc?
3- How do you know when a story and your work on it is finished?
I tag @witherednightmare @blindthewind @mel-writes-with-her-dragons @isherwoodj and @radiomacbeth for this owo)

I almost forgot about this again ajdkldhnjk the challenge is almost done, this cannot happen to me now Dx
Day 22.- Tag a writeblr whose WIP you love
Okay so I like the wip's of most people who I follow -truth be told I don't spend enough time checking wips so I'm sorry if I don't follow you- but even so I'm bad at remembering which wip is from who qwq) I had to check out again to refresh my memory.
@mel-writes-with-her-dragons is the one I'll pick for this one!! Her wip Ice Fingers/Burning Tears is a high fantasy story that has me interested since a while ago, there's an eerie and mysterious vibe to it that I hope I can get into later. It's a duology by what I get, but not quite? Because instead of following one story that then continues in the next one, each book tells the story of different characters that happen in the same world. Check it out if you haven't!!

Day 21.- Is your writing style and/or WIP influenced by a particular book or author?
Hmmm, I like to think Jules Verne and his way of describing things is something that influenced me, but my way of writing is probably mostly influenced by the anime and manga I read. It's not unusual for me to imagine my stories as one of those two, so I imagine how will it be paced and so on.
From all anime and manga, definitely One Piece is my biggest influence. Have I talked yet about how much I love it? Have I? XD
I can't think of other authors or books, honestly. It's more like it's the type of media I consume daily that had impacted my writing the most, instead of a specific one.

It's been slowly but steady that I've learned how to manage a writeblr (more or less) and I'm happy to have entered the writeblr community 😊
I didn't thought of doing something special for this, so I'm improvising: send me an ask!! Send me a small request to draw you an OC!! Or, if you guys give me some time to translate it, I can share with you an excerpt!!! Please tell me if you do owo)/ It'll be from both TMOWS and WCB, something small, maybe around 500-1000 words? Maybe even more depending on the scene i pick.
Thanks a lot gain, and I hope you enjoy what I'll keep sharing with you!!

Heads up 7 up
Thank you for the tag @witherednightmare!!
This is from a fic I'm writing about Bungou Stray Dogs, which recently I continued after a long hiatus:
"However, during the real work you'll fight against armed people all the time. Besides, I think your ability allows you to heal really fast, right? Then, for this special training with the Black Lizards, I'll hammer in your head how to deal with someone with a gun."
Tachihara took out another pistol, and aimed both at him. Atsushi couldn't believe it. All this... Just for training?
"Don't die too easy, got it?" Tachihara said, with a scary grin.
(The fic is in ao3 but it's in Spanish btw)
I'll tag @the-writing-avocado and @petrichorsis and anyone who wants to do this too!

Day 17.- Do you have a favourite genre to write?
Hmm, most of my wips are sci-fi or fantasy/supernatural related, so of course I love to wrote those genres, but I'd say none of those is my favourite. Instead, I'll pick mystery as the genre I like the most.
Theorizing about a story I'm reading or watching is something I've always enjoyed, and, conscious or not, I always try to include some sort of riddle or question to answer into my writing. And I love writing it as much as I like seeing it!!
It's obviously hard to pull out a mystery (not like there's any genre that's easy to write) but I enjoy thinking about how to make clues and puzzle pieces for it as much as I like doing worldbuilding for a sci-fi or fantasy story. And the best thing about it is that, technically, you can add it to any story!! It's not excluyent of other genres like how historically accurate stories, even those that are fiction, can't have sci-fi or fantasy for example, or how urban fantasy can't be high fantasy, etc.
I do intend to try my hand at as many genres as I can, but mystery is probably gonna be present in most of them regardless.

Day 16.- What’s more important to you: characters, plot or worldbuilding?
Oh I have been waiting for this question! I have very strong opinions on this, because my answer to it is:
Characters.
I am a firmly believer that characters are the most important thing in a story, even more than plot and worldbuilding.
Why? Because people are stories, so it makes sense that stories depend on the people involved. You can have the most cliché premise, the most common plot and zero worldbuilding, but if the characters are likeable, charismatic or enjoyable, people will read you and follow the story to the end. This is why there are so many stories that are about nothing yet people love them, and the slice of life genre is proof of it.
Vice versa, if you have an amazing plot and incredible worldbuilding, but the characters fall flat, a lot of people will get bored and abandon the story. This has happened to me before and it's super frustrating. The most recent one that I can think of is Enen no Shouboutai, where I liked everything except the characters and that made me unable to continue it, and it's annoying!! Because the story is good!! The plot is good!!! The worldbuilding and the powers and the mystery were GREAT!!!!!
But the characters? Pass.
Characters are the ones who experience the story in first person, and we, as an audience, follow them from beginning to end. They have to be well done, even if everything else is a basic plot with basic worldbuilding. If we don't spend enough time crafting them, the rest of the work as a whole can fall apart.
