:joy::joy:
I did finish one chapter today.
Not for my main project but it’s still a chapter. :wink:


#9027

@florianraven Relatable, bruh. What’s your snag?

@melodiccnightowl Perfect! What’s got you held up on your main project, if anything?


#9028

I’m writing a deep chapter that’s also pretty much a filler chapter and I keep getting distracted.


#9029

I’ve just been distracted today, my dogs have been aggravating or some reason.


#9030

How goes it with you?


#9031

@minahava Slow going, my dude! How about yourself?

@florianraven Why is it filler?

@melodiccnightowl Do they just want cuddles? xD


#9032

Because out of the three main characters, this character has the least chapters. One’s at 15, one’s at 11, this character’s at 5. I gotta help her catch up :joy: Plus, gotta do that characterisation.


#9033

Idk what they want but they be annoying and not letting me write xD


#9034

swamped man


#9035

Been there… typed that… will be there again at some point.


#9036

It’s almost the end of day 11, and I’m already wasted on words!


#9037

Gone stitchin’.

Not in the mood to write with my tab.


#9038

I am so screwed… long story short, we were expected to do our presentation in powerpoint, but not only don’t I have it (I use Libre Office coz it’s free), I can’t afford to buy it anyway


#9039

Usually both ppt and the pdf presentations are okay where I work - can’t you see if they will be willing to accept a different format?


#9040

yeah, I’ll email them in the morning. In the mean time, i did provide a zip file with both versions and everything I used to create the original presentation so hopefully that will work as well.

@DomiSotto I think I realized another good hack for Wattpad popularity. I don’t know if you’ve ever played any otome games, but I swear that’s the kind of shit this site laps up. I was playing one last night for shits and gigs, and the high school hormonal nostalgia was real.


#9042

Nope, I am into BioWare’s stuff & AC, plus a few smaller titles. The only Asian stuff I played was Blade & Soul and Dynasty Warriors 8. I don’t really like real life stuff.

And, omg, Shoma just going for 3A-4T, I am in tears… the stream from Japan just ended, ye gods, Uno, unbelievable energy-charging-optimism-I-want-to-liveto-the-fullest personality


#9043

You have a point. The majority of wattpad is here for wish fulfillment and escapism and those otome games are like the definition of both.


#9044

@DomiSotto Well, if you’re ever curious about how2popularity, check out otome games, yo.

@KelKaiser They’re definitely a guilty pleasure. Who doesn’t want to be the center of attention and affection of a bunch of attractive potential mates? Like these worlds are literally designed to make the player character/MC the center of the universe, to the point where I seriously doubt these story worlds could even exist without the MC. They’re the damned cornerstone of these universes.


#9045

I know that was a rhetorical question but (raises hands, both hands) I would hate it. Not just the potential mates thing but being the center of attention. But I’m also not a Main Character. I’m a side character who provided the conflict in that one episode and makes an occasional appearance in the episodes after. People usually want to be Main Characters.
