I keep wanting to be a writer or something but then I remember you need to understand human emotions to do that

Can’t for the life of me figure out what to write next in one of the WIPs I’m actively working on, so I’m constantly going back into what I’ve already written and editing it, so the first bit is going to be great, if I ever finish writing the thing

Expectations
Sometimes, the person you'd least expect to do you wrong ends up being the one that does you the dirtiest. It's important to let go of expectations for everybody.

Do I want to write or do I just feel guilty for not writing because I've spent so long having multiple WIPs going at once that my brain feels like something is wrong if I'm not either writing or trying to guilt myself into writing: A novel by me that I haven’t written because I’m not writing right now

One time I was writing something and I wanted to add a detail, and I paused to wonder if it counted as canon? Then I realized I was a complete fool because of course it could be canon, it was my own creative fiction!!!!! I’m the arbitrator of what is canon!

What Should You Outline?
Ah, good ole outlining, people either love it or they hate it. As y’all know, I love outlining. Even though I am learning a little more how to let my outline go, there’s no way I would ever be able to start a project without an outline. But, for all the pantsers out there and even for us plotters, outlining can be a real pain in the ass. It takes forever, especially if you’re someone like me who tends to plot way too many little details. Sometimes, though, you don’t want to outline the full story, and that’s completely okay! Honestly, it might be better that way! If you’re trying to figure out what you need to outline and what you can just come up with, I recommend starting with these four things!
The Beginning. Believe me, having a starting point makes writing everything after so much easier. The beginning needs to hook your reader and inform them about your world without having too many info-dumps. It’s hard to write, and from my personal experience, I’ve spent so much time trying to get the beginning of my story just right. Having the beginning outlined can help you so much!
The Ending. Just like having the starting point makes writing everything after easier, having the ending makes writing everything before easier as well! With the beginning and the end you have the beginning of the tunnel and the light at the end of the tunnel. Knowing how your story ends and what becomes of your characters can help inform any choices you make and help you sow the seeds of any plot twists. Even if you don’t plot anything else, I highly recommend plotting the ending! 
The Climax. The Climax is probably one of the most important moments in your story and you want it to feel that way. Everything builds up to the climax and knowing exactly what happens or even just having a vague idea of it, can help you so much when you’re writing. I’ve found that knowing what my climax is has helped me not have a sagging middle and helped me cut word count a little bit because everything is building up to one particular point, so I’m not just rambling on about nothing for five pages.! 
Character Development Arcs. Honestly, this might should be number one! Character development informs so much of your story. If you’re going to have a corruption arc, a redemption arc, or any kind of major character heavy plot arc, you probably need to plot that out. Even if you don’t want to plot out every single detail of your character arcs, which does boring and sometimes tedious, I would recommend plotting out the middle and the end, just like with your story. Knowing who your character starts out as and who they become are two of the most important things to know about your characters!

Me: I can't read long paragraphs because I have ADHD and I can't process it
Also me: I think I will now write unnecessarily long paragraphs on a subject I'm passionate about knowing full well I won't be able to edit it later because I can't read it

Outline
I just finished my first ever book-outline!!! I never thought I'd be able to plan out a whole book ahead of writing it, but I did it! Wow, it feels amazing to actually have a plan head of writing for once. Maybe that means I'll actually finish this project lol we'll see

I really like soft and gentle bdsm, but also erotic horror makes my brain go offline. The combination makes it really hard to figure out what to write sometimes
