Salutations! I'm Jessica, and this is the blog of a nutty, slightly obsessive, bisexual, teenaged, feminist, fannish, internet activist. Therefore, you ought to expect lots of LGBTQ+, feminism, anti-racism, shipping, and general fandom nonsense, including but not limited to Harry Potter, Star Trek (TOS, Reboot, and DS9), Merlin, Psych, Community, Elementary, various other incarnations of Sherlock Holmes, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Homestuck, The Avengers, Doctor Who, Supernatural, cats, other assorted adorable animals and various other things which have a tendency to be shiny, squeeable and/or very, very gay. Any oppressed group I'm a member of, I'm an activist for, and any that I'm not, I try to be an ally for. Please, call me out on my bullshit whenever it occurs.
I'm a seventeen year old high school graduate (skipped a grade, woohoo), and I want to be a novelist or a geneticist. Perhaps both, but probably not at the same time.
I tag the shit out of everything, so 1) my blog is apparently an awesome reference point, and 2) I really won't mind if you need me to tag something for Tumblr Savior.
I don't do followbacks unless you're fandom or SJ and I like what you post. If you want me to check out your blog, go ahead and ask. I might not follow you (I tried to keep the number of people I follow pretty low), but I will at the very least look at it!
Currently single. ;)
You can follow me on Twitter, too! I post a lot of stuff on there that never makes it here.
Talk to me! I get bored easily; you can help alleviate that boredom! :D I'm most likely to be active between the hours of ten AM and ten PM, Eastern Standard Time.
Common Characteristics of Natural Born, Freelance, or Career Writers
An “odd ball” childhood.
Writers tend to start off as peculiar kids. They never quite fit in with their classmates. Their abstract thinking begins early on, and it causes them to struggle to relate to other children and elementary interests. Future writers commonly start off as either lonesome or socially inept kids.
They were handed books as toys.
Naturally gifted writers are almost always reading enthusiasts. They have a further developed vocabulary and stronger syntax abilities because their scholastic experience goes beyond traditional curriculum.
They believe in the “All or nothing” policy.
Writers are often perfectionists that will edit until their eyes bleed or completely scratch an idea off the table. They tend to carry that trait into their other projects as well. The writer will either create something complete or nothing at all.
They take pride in their work.
Even if they need help, writers like doing their work 100% themselves without contribution. This is seen often in college, when the self-proclaimed writers don’t show up to office hours or ask for tutoring. Writers tend to treat even essays as a personal work of art. It’s their work, and it matters that it’s only theirs.
They are equally organized and disorganized.
A writer’s mind works in choreographed chaos. With too much chaos comes no productivity. With too much organization comes no passion. The writer has learned how to have the perfect combination of both.
They have both an ego and self-doubt.
-Enough ego to invest in one’s own thoughts, enough doubt to revise and rethink continuously.
They enjoy simplicity.
Hot coffee, music, and a sunrise could make their morning flawless.
They are observant.
Writers tend to learn about things from as many angles as they can. They’ll see the same sign for ten years and connect ten-thousand other separate things to the sign in that amount of time. They take in what they can and make a mental map of how things co-exist.
They recognize the importance of memories.
Writers learn how to utilize past moments as criteria for their work. A writer will not forget their first love, or heartache.
Aside from the “coffee” part, this is me down to a tee
all of these describe me… especially the first two and the 5th and 6th. :P
