  • Crows are really cool.

    I keep seeing a murder of them fly around my school during lunch and its SO RAD that I have to point out every time I see them

  • I just made up a very threatening threat:

    “I’m gonna you into marinara sauce and I will MAKE SURE you get served at the cheapest Italian restaurant in existence”

  • A PSA, Brought to To You by Gengar

    —Haven’t eaten or drank water in a while? Now’s your reminder!
    —Been sitting down for a while? Get up and stretch a little!
    —Unclench that jaw! Rest those shoulders! Check your posture!
    —Got meds you need to take right now? Go take them!
    —Tired? Take a rest, whether it be a nap or laying down for bed
    —Please remember to take breaks and to not overwork yourself!

    This concludes the PSA, brought to you by Gengar

  • Genuinely cannot wrap my head around shows with more than 10 seasons. My favorite show only has 3 seasons and I can’t remember zip about season 1+2
    (Although maybe it’s just the hiatuses and my -8 attention span)

  • They need to stop making unskippable horror movie ads on youtube. I’m looking at you, The Pope’s Exorcist (2023)

    GengarIsBestBoy Ok technically it wasn’t unskippable but they had graphic stuff before you were able to skip it

  • This dream has been on my mind recently; I absolutely NEED to incorporate a scene where someone crushes a cantaloupe with their foot in a story someday

A CANTALOUPE??? Are you really so stupid as to think someone could crush a cantaloupe with their foot?” And I cried

  • Ok can someone explain this camp nano thing to me? I’ve read the thing and I still can’t understand it

    Spearmint Do you know what NaPo is? If so, Camp NaNo is like that, except for prose! ^^ If not, it’s like a community event where participants set goals and work on their own writing projects, but can also encourage others and receive encouragement from people trying to do the same. Basically, supporting each other as we do a month-long writing (or planning, or revising) sprint!

    Question 1: Do you have a story to tell, a work to revise, or a novel/prose work to plan?

    Question 2: Do you want to participate in a fun YWS event, but one that’s more prose-focused than NaPo?

    Question 3: Are you up for trying something new and growing your writing skills along the way?

    If you answered yes to any of those, Camp NaNo could be for you! =D Just make a thread in this forum. (You can see examples there as well, or in the archives.) You can also claim badges in this thread!

    If you don’t have time, you can also just check out other people’s threads and post some encouraging comments. ^^ Those can really brighten up someone’s day!

    Note that Camp NaNo is different from PlanMo. Camp NaNo takes place in April and deals with the actual writing/planning/revising, while PlanMo takes place in March-April and deals with planning! This post has the info for PlanMo.

    Bonus question 4: Do you want character art for one of your characters?
    If so: shameless self-promo, but I’m offering to draw character art for the first five people who complete the PlanMo character questionnaire challenge and post the link in [urk= Character Art - PlanMo/Camp NaNo April 2023 ]this thread![/url] C:

    Hope that helped, and feel free to reach out to mods of the Gen Lit team, like Liminality, IcyFlame, or RandomTalks as well! (Or me, as I still consider myself a part of Gen Lit xD) <3

    GengarIsBestBoy Thank you! I probably won’t be able to do this though since I need to finish my main project before school ends (i’m writing it on a chromebook)

    Hello hello! With NaPo coming up, we're having a special song lyric discussion for our Poetry Readers pad this March! The date/time will be (adjusts to your timezone). You can bring song lyrics from any musical artist you like to discuss. Some examples of the things we might talk about would be favourite lines, how the language of the song makes you feel, etc.

    As usual all YWS rules and the content rating system will apply to the pad. Said pad will be posted in the Poetry Readers club and on the People's Tab.

    We hope to see you there!
