how did you start writing/what made you want to get into it??

I guess this depends which time. I’ve “gotten into writing” several times in my life, but this latest time is when I started getting more serious about it (which feels gross to say, considering how far I am from being able to do anything “serious” with it, but anyway).

At some point while I was at university, I went from “I’m just gonna write crack fanfiction” to “I’m gonna try to write an actual novel, because I’ll never be a filmmaker like I wish I could.” Like, writing a book seemed like a cheaper, easier way to have all the control of a screenwriter/director/filmmaker and then some, because I could decide literally every detail. So it was kind of perfect, I thought.

It’s been a bit off and on since then, and I change my mind literally every day about how far I actually want to take my writing, but that was basically the reason I got into it.

Thanks for the ask! 💛

Are you planning on continuing the I'll Tell You series?

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: I’m not sure when. I started part 5 immediately after writing part 4, and then I lost motivation for it. It was supposed to be like a huge flashback thing to before they’d ever met, but I don’t know if that’s working at all, so I might have to rethink the whole thing. And I just have other projects I’d rather work on at the moment. But I want them to have some sort of closure, I just think I need to figure out what that is, because what I’d planned doesn’t seem to be working.

Also I wasn’t sure anyone was still interested in that, oop.

What’s your favorite thing about yourself?

I’m good at making really bad puns. Yesterday we saw a robin when we were out for a walk, and it was kinda chonky (a borb), and I was like, “That’s a very round robin,” and then cackled to myself for five freaking minutes. Yes, my partner spends a lot of time rolling his eyes and groaning in pain when I speak, but I love it.

What's your favourite sound?

Flipping through a full notebook. But, like, not just any notebook. It has to be that old school kind of paper—you know what I mean, the blue lined stuff, classic—and it has to be written on in ballpoint pen and the pages have to be FULL of text. Flipping through a notebook like that is just…… Oh man, the crispiness of it. So cronch. I just. It feels amazing and it sounds amazing. It’s magical.

The unfortunate thing is that I’m a bit picky about stationery, and I do my daily journaling in a pretty, hardbound notebook with fairly thick paper and my favourite Sharpie pen (not the permanent marker!) so most of my pages full of text are not the right kind. I did have, like, a second journal? Like I had my pretty one for my daily thoughts and feels, and then a second one when I just needed to work through ideas and I didn’t mind it being “crappy.” Though now I usually use bullet points and smaller notebooks for working through ideas, so that “crappy” notebook, AKA the magical one, in only like half filled so far.

I should get back to that……

Anyway, this probably says far more about me than I’d like it to, but thanks for the ask 😅😆💙

Edit: I just went and flipped through it and I really wish it was completely full so I’m gonna try and work on that, lol. (Also anyone who thinks it’s weird to have two journals—or even one journal—please never ask me how many notebooks, journals, and planners I have and use on a regular basis. It will disgust you.)

What do you think your best fic is?

I feel like a broken record about this, but I’m going to mention the same two fics I always do when I talk about my favourites.

Mine Right Now is my first soulmate AU fic, and I think it might be my best in terms of the story itself? Obviously that’s debatable, but it’s the one that interests me the most. I was really proud of myself when I did it. (Gross, I know.) It’s not like it’s a literary masterpiece or anything, it’s just maybe marginally more substantial than most of my fluff? I don’t know.

And Black Sheep is my first DeNiall fic, and I think it’s my best in terms of the style, I guess? The mood? Idk, it just feels to me exactly how I wanted it to feel, and that basically never happens when I write. I don’t think I could sustain the level of focus to write like that all the time, though. The story itself is nothing exciting, really, but I actually, like, enjoy reading it. Again, that’s pretty rare for my own stuff.

The reason I mention these two again, instead of trying to come up with a less expected answer, is that my current WIP is a spinoff/sequel to Mine Right Now, but focusing on Dev and Niall. So it’s a bit of both, and yes, it is a desperate attempt on my part to try and write something I like as much as those ones. I think I’m failing. The story might not be as interesting as MRN, and the mood isn’t as true-to-vision as Black Sheep, but then again I know I struggled towards the end of both of those fics as well, so we’ll see.

I’m curious to what others who have read these stories think, whether you felt the same way, or you think I should just stick to writing University AU handjobs, because apparently that’s what people really want, lmao.

Thank you for the ask 💕

how well are you dealing with the quarantine? (sending you good vibes)

Well, I’m usually home all day anyway, so the only big difference is that my partner is home all day too, now. Luckily we like spending a lot of time together, because we went straight from 3½ weeks of vacation to 2 weeks of self-isolation and now this indefinite sitch. And we’re not sick of each other yet, so. (We also just started playing Animal Crossing yesterday and it’s been super nice.)

All that being said, I do miss getting out of the house for things other than outdoor walks, because I have a tendency to avoid social situations anyway and I really need to make myself go and order coffee and sit in a café and stuff like that or else my anxiety gets to the point where I can’t leave my home at all. So…. Yes I’m used to staying in all the time, but that usually goes hand in hand with poor mental health. So I’m trying to be aware of that and do other things that are good for me.

Thanks for the good vibes 💙💛

f-ing-ruthless-baz:

If the DeNiall fic never gets finished, blame Animal Crossing.

f-ing-ruthless-baz:

I may have written zero (0) words today, but it’s fine. It’s ok. It’ll be fine. Everything’s going to be alright. It’s fine.

I take that back. If it never gets finished, blame it on my inability to write a decent resolution to a story.

Like I have it outlined, I know what needs to happen. But actually getting them there with words? Nope.

Petition to start referring to me as FIRB, because (a) I like birbs, and (b) it makes me think of a Furby and those things are CURSÈD.

f-ing-ruthless-baz:

Look, I’ll know that I’ve made it as a content creator when people can refer to me by something other than my full username and others will still know who they’re taking about.

I don’t know what that means. Is that bad?

DeNiall Watch 2020: I’ve given chapter 5 a bit of an overhaul, but I’m almost done this new version. Gonna try to finish it before I check out the very tempting chapter update in my subscriptions….. 👀 Hopefully this will work as motivation.

Tentative publishing date for chapter 1 is some time next week. Might do a cheeky preview tonight if I get antsy.

Lol, I lost a follower after posting this? I’ll take that as a sign from the universe.
