New Books


Joined a new writing website today.

People seem chill as I've talked to them, more welcoming than most places I've visited anyway. And it has something I've really not ever seen in these types of communities, an active mod team.

I'm really hoping this is the one. I've wanted to get back into writing for a while, all those ideas filtering around in my head. It's not like there's anyone IRL I could really discuss this with.

They just don't get it, the second I start mentioning themes and shit their eyes gloss over. I see how Demon slayer won anime of the year now LMFAO.

But these people, they feel different to me. Like, I can mention half-decent shit and they understand. They really get it.

It's always pissed me off how people dismiss so called "artsy" works just because they don't get them. I don't think it's an intelligence thing either. Sure I'm smart, but they SHOULD be able to get it. If my little brother can get it while being dumb as a pile of bricks, why can't my classmates?

There's this one person I really like on the website. Not to mention their novel is excellent, easily comparable to actually published stuff I've read. I never thought I'd find so much talent in a writing community.

Everyone's novels sound interesting. Sure the quality uhh varies novel by novel, but there's heart to it, the passions there. More than I can say for most of the other writing communities I've been to.

Sure this place is small, but it feels pretty relaxed, drama free. I don't really get the vibe that there's much, if any, drama. Sure squabbles will break out, they always do, but that's life. Dodging drama is impossible.

                                                                        * * *

I was able to talk a bit with the person I really liked. Honestly, she feels really chill. But in a no holding back kind of way.

When she says something, she means it. There's no wishy-washy takes, or holding her tongue. It's refreshing in a world of fake kindness and bullshit. I feel I can actually be myself here.

I don't really come to these types of communities expecting much, there's so much fake kindness behind everyone's pfp most of the time lol, yet this place feels different, she feels different.

Maybe I could even make friends here, who knows, weirder things have happened.

Anyway, till tomorrow, may the show go on.
