Because these hard working authors deserve much more recognition. Sadly, tumblr’s tagging issue is partly to blame for that not happening, something staff are reluctant to look into, it seems, so we have to help each other!

our love; pages upon pages of black ink and quills. preserved with hushed feelings only you and i know of. tears of moon and shine decorate the spillage of words, that bind together to form coherent sentences that recall our sweet moments. these moments preserved for only our history.
how romantic it is to write about my muse.

So I'll tell you all a story, since I'm depressed and bored.
Once, there was a girl, who used to smile, and be happy. She loved the world and it's people, because she was unaware of the darkness inside her.
Then, as this stupid girl grew older, she realized something was wrong with her. Her heart was always aching, longing for this thing called love, but it was something she had never had.
When she was old enough, she decided to try falling in love, to see if the ache in her chest would go away.
But, unfortunately for her, every person she fell in love with didn't really have time for her, or the heart for her.
So, she was left all alone, the ache in her chest growing evermore. It froze her completely, until all emotions, all feeling left her soul.
After all, if she was frozen, she wouldn't even feel the aches and pains inside her....right?

A Richard Marx CD plays on the stereo, a bag from Zabar’s loaded with sourdough onion bagels and spices sits on the kitchen table while I grind bone and fat and flesh into patties, and though it does sporadically penetrate how unacceptable some of what I’m doing actually is, I just remind myself that this thing, this girl, this meat, is nothing, is shit, and along with a Xanax (which I am now taking half-hourly) this thought momentarily calms me and then I’m humming, humming the theme to a show I watched often as a child—The Jetsons? The Banana Splits? Scooby Doo? Sigmund and the Sea Monsters? I’m remembering the song, the melody, even the key it was sung in, but not the show.

writing secondary characters
source: https://www.masterclass.com/articles/how-to-write-supporting-characters#what-are-supporting-characters 
What Are Supporting Characters?
A supporting character is a person who plays a role in the life of a story’s protagonist. Novelists and screenwriters don’t anchor a story around supporting characters, but they use them in the process of worldbuilding to create a compelling backdrop to the main character’s story arc.
A well-written supporting character will have a character arc, a strong point of view, and clear personality traits. In many cases they will be the types of characters a reader might recognize from their own life and—like main characters—they will grow and change over the course of the storyline. Characters who don’t change are known as flat characters, and while certain bit parts work just fine as flat characters, the majority of your secondary parts must be dynamic and engaging to a reader or viewer.
Margaret Atwood’s 7 Tips for Writing Supporting Characters
Your secondary characters are formed by their life experiences. Character and event are inseparable because a person is what happens to them. This is true for main characters and minor characters alike. Even if a secondary character only appears sporadically throughout your novel, short story, or screenplay, supporting characters exist insofar as they experience events.
Secondary characters must be three dimensional, just like main characters. Your job as a writer is to learn about your character by observing how they interact with the world around them. Characters—like real people in real life—have hobbies, pets, histories, ruminations, quirks, and obsessions. They also have a backstory, just like the protagonist does. It’s essential to your novel that you understand these aspects of your character so that you are equipped to understand how they may react under the pressures of events they encounter.
Keep a track of your secondary characters with a character chart. When Margaret writes, she makes a character chart on which she writes each character, their birthday, and world events that might be relevant to them. In this way, she keeps track of how old characters are in relation to one another, and also how old they are when certain fictional or historical events occurred.
Make your characters interesting. Characters, like people, are imperfect. They don’t need to be likable, but they must be interesting. For example, Moby-Dick’s Captain Ahab was certainly not likable, but he was compelling, and that is Margaret’s bar for writing characters. Sometimes the characters in supporting roles are the ones who are easiest to push boundaries with. You should aim to create an interesting character that directly abets or stymies the protagonist’s goal but in a way that doesn’t necessarily conform to a worn-out archetype.
Every character needs to speak with purpose. When your characters are speaking, they should be trying to get something from one another or make a power play. As you draft each scene, ask yourself what your characters are trying to get. What are they trying to avoid? How do these wants inflect their speech and guide what they say—or don’t say? As you compose dialogue for your supporting characters, be mindful of their character roles within your primary storyline (as well as any subplots). Use their conversations efficiently to contribute to worldbuilding, character development, and the escalation of plot.
Take time to get dialogue right. To get dialogue right, you must understand how your characters speak. This is likely influenced by where they come from, their social class, upbringing, and myriad other factors. Speech and tone are always bound up in what has happened and is happening to a character. Shakespeare was exceptionally deft at encoding his characters’ speech with these social markers. In your own story, if the lead character is from Colorado and his best friend is from New York, their dialogue shouldn’t sound the same. Just as their worldview and personality traits must be distinct, so too must be their way of speaking. Most first-time authors tend to get their major characters’ dialogue correct, but it’s supporting characters’ dialogue that can separate great authors from those who are merely decent.
Choose secondary character names wisely. Be sure names are distinct, Margaret cautions, so that readers can tell characters apart. In cinema, the original Star Wars trilogy does a great job of this. Assuming Luke Skywalker is the protagonist, supporting character names like Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Obi-Wan Kenobi are all distinct from one another, which aids a first-time viewer who is new to the Jedi universe.

Hairdresser: "So, have you been up to much lately?"
What I wish I had the self-confidence to say: "Oh, I did a writing challenge online for April, wrote 30,000 words for a supervillain humour novel..."
What I actually say: "Oh, nothing much, just work - how about you?"

I am watching The Bold Type on Netflix season 1 episode 3. I am obsessed, inspired and wanting to write. I have a passion for writing and I just realized that, I love writing and taking photos. I never thought about making that a career, but there is a possibility. I can at least write as a hobby. I need to learn to develop better writing skills and learn various styles of writing. Writing does seem easy, but it can be difficult when a person goes through writing block or just cannot put their thoughts into words.
My passion is medicine and I love to write as well. I am working hard to get into a mbbs program here or Nursing. I just need to get into a program where I can finally get a degree, which will help me get a career started in the medical field. Meanwhile, I would love to write. I decided to stick to here for all my writing passions and venting about my life because it just seems more put together. I can post pictures of things that inspire me and also write. I started here back in 2014, just posting pictures no writing. I will start that though, I will start everything I wish I could do.
