🍭 How To Keep Writing
In the midst of Camp NaNoWriMo I’ve found myself unable to write. These are some of the tips I have if you’re feeling stuck like I was! 
Set Realistic Goals.
Seriously! Think of what you can handle and what you’ve been able to write. Plan your schedule accordingly and if there are particular days of the week where you know you’ll find it hard to write, consider that and take it into account when setting goals. 
Write Now. Revise Later. 
I know it’s hard but you work so much faster when you forget abut editing and revising! Write what feels right to you and focus on editing and revising later! The goal is to complete your word count and complete your story!
Create The Perfect Writing Space.
Trust me. I have started feeling so much better about writing because I’m getting out of my room! Sometimes, changing your work space seriously helps and can help motivate you. 
Listen To Some Tunes!
These days I’ve been listening to podcasts and they’ve kept me centered and focus. I’ve also been listening to some EDM that has served as background noise but it’s pumped me up! Find the instrumentals of your favorite songs and get in the zone! 
If these tips helped you, go ahead and follow me. I post writing content daily! No, go ahead, set goals, create a routine, and write your heart out! 
With love, Nani  ♡₍ᐢ.  ̫.ᐢ

Hallucinations👻
I never know when to fight and when to walk away. I can't believe when I've been deceived. It's like, "Are you foreal?" "Is this how you really feel?" I never take time to process what's been done to me. Instead of feeling the agony, I push it down, and ignore it nicely. I put a smile on my face and say "I miss you." I never walk away. Because I know my footprints would bring you great pain. Even though, I can't find a reason to stay. But, I remember that night. I visit there in my dreams. Or should I say nightmares? I was fighting something dark, I tried to hold myself but I was falling apart. Slipping through my fingers, I called a friend and she told me I'm losing it. "Look at your arms, you're really choosing this?" As I wait for the hotline to ring, I waited for you to pick me. Never realizing I was in competition, I thought you completed me. If not completed, you definitely complimented me. My love looked so good on you. As you tried it on, I made slight adjustments. But, it was tailored especially for you. You couldn't tell me I wasn't the one.
But, I always felt like the two. A sucker for you. Second draft pick, how can I be number two? I felt like I was settled for. Why wasn't I everything to you before? All of me felt broken. It was only hours before we spoken. I didn't want to throw it all away. But, I didn't want the pain. I'm never ashamed of my love or how fast it bloomed. I'm trying to let the past go but I'm consumed. Something is telling me "Don't press resume". I need a break from the world's showcase. I can't seem to get past my mistakes, I feel out of place. Between this and my heartache, everything is causing me to stay awake.

//In His Last Days He Sings A Song About The Life Of A Man Without A Woman//
My nana tells me stories of his newly married days when there was someone to hold his hands whenever the dawn came.
He keeps on blabbering some names and one of them is quite repetitive, the name that brings spring to his heart
He looks in the mirror and tries to find someone behind him and all that he gets is memories of his good old days crawling onto his skin like they even know that he needs them the most
I ask him how she looked like when he saw her for the first time, he says : she looked like a poetry flawless and written to make you feel something,
she looked like that light from a small window that falls onto a tiny corner of a room and brightens every part of it
She was like that root of an old tree that keeps on loving and caring every part of it till her last breath,
He says, she used to smell like happiness, she was the one who loved him selflessly, the one who looked into his eyes and made him fall in love with his life and everything around.
So when he held her hand for the one last time, he couldn't believe that someone like her like my nani can ever choose a man like him,
someone so delicate and fragile,
someone whose eyes would tell you a story every time you peeked into them,
someone with such a beautiful heart could ever love a man like him.

🍭 How To Write Strong Character Relationships
Character-building is an essential step in the writing process. Sometimes, however, we become so focused on other elements of our story that we isolate our characters. Your fictional world would crumble without good characters and good character relationships to tie into the plot. If you want to learn how to write these strong character relationships, keep reading!
1. Relate your character’s to other characters
Your character’s life should intertwine with the lives of other characters in your story. Without this, you wouldn’t have much of a good, meaningful, well-thought of plot. Show don’t tell and mesh character’s lives together to form relationships. 
2. Setting
Settings can solidify the world your character’s live in but, it also has the ability to tie into character’s relationships. Using the setting to help character’s bond, meet, or argue can help you mix their lives together to create solid relationships and make them feel like real people with real friends/enemies!
3. Dialogue 
Dialogue reveals the most about a character’s personality. You can bring character’s together through speech. You can bring character’s together and create malleable relationships. However, make sure to avoid info dumps! 
4. Character motivations
You can examine the motivations and desires of your character and find the potential for conflict or friendship. Think about their backstories and their desired final goals!
5. The smaller characters
Even with small interactions, these characters are integral to building your world. Let every interaction between characters be meaningful and important.

꒰ How To Create A Character Profile ꒱
Before you start a story, a character profile is essential! It is the first step you should taking when you begin. Here are some tips for how to create your character profiles to get working on your story!
What Is A Character Profile? 
A character profile is essentially the blueprint of your characters(s). Think of it as your character’s detective file. For something shorter, you can also refer to it as a character sketch. The purpose of a character profile is to fully flesh out your characters. 
What Your Character Profile Should Include: 
1. A backstory. 
Explain your character’s names, their age, their occupation, their birthplace, etc. 
2. A physical description. 
Explain their physical appearance! You can event insert a drawing (or rough sketch) to help you describe their appearance. 
3. Their personality. 
Are they funny? Do they make bad puns? Are they scared of heights? Explain the inner details of who they are and what makes them angry or scared, 
4. What do they do on a daily basis? 
Describe their daily routine to get a better sense of who they are, what they do, and why they do what they do. 
5. A Questionnaire! 
Ask questions about your character as if you were going on a first date with your characters! This is your chance to really get to know them. 
Here is a questionnaire I’ve created myself! 
I hope this helps! With love, Ariani ♡₍ᐢ.  ̫.ᐢ₎

A sentence left unsaid:
How most movies are made
A secret or some lie instead
Of a truth too hard to be laid.
The hero sets out on a quest
With all characters under his control
But hides a secret in his chest
That complicates achieving their goal
They find out and go mad
Because it's always too late
If only they had known earlier
They would have set things straight.
Or a misunderstanding in a romantic
Where it's so simple to be solved;
But the hero refuses to confess
Until the situations evolved.
In a comedy, he's always afraid
Because the truth is so hard to bare
Thus, a series of unfortunate events
Making it harder to repair.
They all have it in common
The words left unsaid
And I keep wondering if I should
Have told you what I felt
Just like in movies,
I carry the exact fear
But Would it have made a difference
If I was to be sincere?

So You Wanna Write A Chosen One?
Do you really? I mean I’m not gonna stop you, but sighhh.....I’m kidding, but only a little bit. I definitely feel like the trope is over done, but if you really want to write it, then we’re gonna write it well! Chosen ones are really hard to write imo because they always feel a tiny bit, I don’t what the right word to describe it is because the word I have in my head doesn’t really work to describe it, but basically the fact that only one person can defeat the big bag evil (normally, but not always, a white male) and everyone is unworthy, never really sat right with me. Even if its not a white guy, the fact that only one person out of the millions in the whole world is worthy to save the world, just sounds very supremacist to me. But, there can be some interesting nuances to writing a chosen ones, so here are a few tips for writing chosen one characters!
Their Choices Change Everything 
If your character is the Chosen One and the only one who can kill the big bad, then inevitably all the choices they make will have even more of an impact on the story. If Luke Skywalker decides to just chill on Tatootine instead of going to save Leia and thus beginning his predestined quest to return balance to the force, that changes the whole plot of the story. The story actually doesn’t happen because in that scenario Darth Vader offs Leila before anyone can come rescue her. In any story, the choices your character makes matter, but when your character is basically the Savior, the choices they make matter even more. Show them struggling with that. Maybe, they don’t want to do any of this. Maybe they would rather chill at home with their family, but in doing that, they would be dooming hundreds or even thousands of people to death. Showing them actually struggling with having the fates of pretty much the whole world in the palm of their hand adds some nuance to their character, especially if they’re already a reluctant hero. 
Make Them Work For It
A lot of people seem to think that just by being the chosen one a character becomes the all powerful, all knowing, omnipotent SuperHero who is basically undefeatable. I’m not gonna gripe with my problems about that whole trope today, but if you do have an all power, indestructible character you need to show them actually training and learning how to wield all this power, and preferably not over the course of one measly training chapter. They should loose and be beaten. Take Harry Potter for example. Harry’s a shitty wizard, and just because he’s the chosen one he never become a good wizard. At the beginning of the series, he’s a shitty wizard, and at the end of the series he’s a less shitty wizard, but he still isn’t that good. What talent and skill he does have though, he works for. He doesn’t just expect to win every battle because he’s the chosen one, he studies and he trains. Your chosen one character doesn’t have to be all powerful, in fact it sometimes makes for a better story when they aren’t. If they are though, remember to make them work for it!
Give Them A Weakness
This feels like an obvious thing, but there are so many books where the character will just have no weaknesses, and it makes any conflict in the book feel cheap and stilted. If we know that the character is going to win because they’ve been prophesied to kill the villain, then it’s a lot harder to get through the book because any of the conflict is just like eh. To stop that from happening, give them a legitimate, dangerous weakness. Something that if they’re not careful, will kill them. Something that the antagonist can use to exploit them and kill them. Kind of like how in ATLA, the Avatar State is super powerful and helpful and kickass, but if the Avatar dies in that state, then the whole Avatar reincarnation process stops. It’s a really big reward, but a huge risk to enter that state, and we as the viewers know and recognize that. Giving your character a big weakness adds conflict back into the story, especially if the antagonist knows about the weakness and the hero doesn’t, or vice versa. Knowing that the antagonist has a feasible and not absolutely contrived way to kill the chosen one raises the stakes for the story and keeps the reader interested!
Let Them Question Their Journey 
Honestly, I’m a very spiritual and religious person, but I still don’t know if I would just instantly believe if an angel came to me and said, “Ailey, you’re the Savior of the world.” I feel like even the most spiritual people would have moments of doubt and questioning. So many characters just instantly believe that they’re the chosen one and never question their destiny even after suffering a devastating lose. Especially after a devastating lose or the death of a teammate, I believe even the most confident and self-assured chosen one would start to doubt themselves and wonder if they were really meant to be the Savior of the world. Letting them have that doubt shows that they’re human even with this grand destiny. But, if your character never questions their destiny even after a really bad lose, that can be a very interesting character choice. Maybe they’ve always been extremely arrogant or have had an inflated sense of self way before their chosen one destiny was even revealed to them. Showing that internal dialogue of them believing wholeheartedly in themselves even if deep, deep down they know they’re wrong, especially if other characters have told them that they’re wrong can be so damn interesting to read. 
Make Them The Chosen One For a Reason
One of my biggest gripes with the Star Wars series is that they establish that Anakin is supposed to bring balance to the force, but then they don’t show him clearly doing that. Now, I am of the belief, that Anakin’s destiny was to father Luke and become Darth Vader thus, indirectly bringing balance to the force, but who knows. The point is, if you have a chosen one, they need to have a very clear role to play in the story. Why are they specifically the chosen one? How do their powers or destiny influence their choices and behavior? Having a chosen one in your story, a trope that people generally tend to hate, needs to be for a very specific reason. Going back to my ATLA references, by the end of the series, we understand exactly why Aang was chosen to be the Avatar. He’s finally grown to master all the elements and because of the way people treat him, and the way he treats them in return, we understand why anyone else wouldn’t have been able to be the Avatar in that situation. Aang was cautious, balanced, and had a very compassionate perspective. All of those things made him the perfect character to handle the challenges of being the Avatar.

☕ Tips for Character Descriptions
One of the most important elements when first prepping a story is character descriptions! They are an essential, not only for you, but for your story. The goal with character descriptions is to create vivid images of the character you’ve created so that your readers can visualize this character. Here are some tips on how you can improve your own character descriptions!
1. Don’t Rely Solely On Physical Attributes. 
To have an effective character description try to think fo it as if you were describing someone to a policeman or a detective. The point is to be able to vividly imagine your character. Be detailed! Don’t use mundane sentences like, “He was a tall middle-aged man.” 
2. Hold Back On The Adjectives. 
To avoid cliches, try to keep the adjectives to a minimum and use metaphors or sensory language to create fresh descriptions. Instead of simply describing a character with hazel eyes you could go a little more bold. For example, as Emily Dickinson once remarked, “[their eyes] were the color of the sherry the guests leave in the glasses.” 
3. Select the Physical Attributes That Will Reveal The Most About The Character. 
One simply detail or piece of clothing can help give you and your readers an impression on who the character is. Remember, you’re trying to create a vivid image of your character so the reader can visualize while reading.
4. Try To Use Objects To Reveal Their Inner Lives. 
Sometimes, the objects characters hold in their hands can reveal their inner lives. Think of what items you love that can be used to describe you. Think about the clothes you pack on a weekend getaway, etc. 
5. Get Them Moving. 
If tour character was reading a book and you wanted to describe them you could try to use expression with movement. For example, ‘he scowled as he read.’ This can give us insight into their personality and story while also giving us that vivid image we’re looking for. 
- Bonus! Describe their surroundings with adequate detail! For example, are they sitting on a brown recliner? On a padded chair? 
Character descriptions are important. Spend time on them and work on creating visual for your readers!
With love, Ariani ♡₍ᐢ.  ̫.ᐢ₎

Smiles
Sitting with my mom
I smile a different smile.
Listening to her sweet words
I smile a big, genuine smile.
Sitting with those fake people
I smile a different smile.
Listening to their fake words
I smile a tight-lipped, fake smile.
Sitting with someone I admire
I smile a different smile.
Listening to and watching them
I smile a small shy smile.
Sitting with people I love
I smile a different smile.
Goofing and talking with them
I smile a big, toothy smile.
To every heart in my life
I smile a different smile.
For all the hearts I've lost
I smile a different smile.

Here’s an easy one you can write about! Roses!! Please write a poem about a red rose slowly turned into pink and then white when winter comes please? ~X-Over Anon
Hello 👋 Anonymous. Hope you're doing wonderful.
Now that's an interesting concept. Thank you for the idea. I have tried my best. Here it is.
Roses
My heart will sing
All individual notes.
All heaven bells will ding
And hit all the right notes.
The flower in your hand
Is a piece of my heart.
You're like a grand
Piece of lovely art.
From seasons to years
This rose will bloom.
It's all yours
Like a personal heirloom.
It slowly changes and grows
Along with you.
Into different colours it glows
Just like you.
From red to pink
And pink to white.
From young love to adult sync
And from that to old flight.

• hours(ft. you) - a slow death •
dawn - whimpering fragile silhouettes/satin laces wrapped around wine stained sheets/ the streetlights flicker slowly/ "what is it like to love someone till every single breath is just an reminder how you have to get through another day alone" / i stare at the sticky note beside my bedstand/ deafening silence creeps up my spine/ yet i find a home somewhere in between/ somewhere far amidst the first ray of sun a lone bird sighs/ i tell myself that i don't need you/ my words comes out in series of stutters/ please come home.
noon - old typewriter keys clash against tired fingers/ i tuck a loose strand of hair behind my ear as the clock tower strucks one/ the sky looks like a pastel patchwork of metaphors today/ i hope the winds on your side of the town are gentle on your freckles/ inside my third drawer, somewhere carefully tucked inside some envelopes/ and i try so hard to not reach out for your smile/ i have survived two octobers alone since you left and i am not sure if i can take the third one.
dusk - i run my fingertips around the edge if the ceramic cup and watch my date flash me a smile/ his long brown locks are similar to yours but yet home feels so far/ long slender fingers run over my knuckles; he looks outside the window/ a tint of shyness kisses his cheeks/ i smile and shift my gaze to the sky/ have you found a different heartbeat to call your safe place now love? (i hope you still think about me)
midnight - thunder whirls past the city as i spend another sleepless night with empty arms/ the wooden box where we kept our promise rings, now serves as my ashtray/ you left me like an unfinished poem after feeding me with a very promising ending/ i smile to myself and then laugh and then choke on my own sobs/ how am i now supposed to finish the poem in me if your thoughts keep on breaking me over and over in every passing hour?
