Really? We’re mutuals and I didn’t know that. Wow. Thank you for notifying me kind anon.
As always, you think well Asc! That’s exactly my type. But unfortunately that type is very hard to find especially when I want them to be well written. That’s pretty much why I feel for Tsukki and Nishiki immediately and now they’re alongside many of my long-time favorites.
We are unutterably alone, essentially, especially in the things most intimate and most important to us.—Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (translated by Joan Marie Burnham)
So what if English isn’t your first language? Yes, it can be quite a hurdle but not the kind that is impossible to overcome if you put some effort into doing it. For one - write. Even if you think it’s bad, even if it’s not as good as you want it to be or how you imagined it to be. You can learn a lot through trial and error. Read. As often as you can. Be it fanfiction or popular authors. Let other people’s style help you form you own. Learn new vocabulary daily. I keep a notebook next to me at all times and whenever I find a word I don’t know, I write it down with an English explanation and translation to my language. And then I make sure to use it next time I write. You can’t learn a new word unless you put it to use as soon as possible. Listen and appreciate any feedback you can get. Other people notice things better than you. And last, and most important, don’t ever give up. Especially if you like writing. None of this is professional advice or anything, I’m also just an amateur writer but there’s nothing wrong with being on the way, you know. Just keep going and you’ll get there.
