8 Writing Asks

8 Writing Asks

Originally posted to Tumblr, 06/04/2018.


☆. What is your total word count on AO3? 

1,395,062. AKA a lot. xD


☆. How often do you write? 

Most days. I tend to write in the evenings when I’m doing all my various online shizz - comping, ebaying, working on my parent blog, etc.


☆. Do you have a routine for writing?

Nope. I just write until it feels done. If I do spend time plotting something out, it’ll be in my head on the bus or in a boring meeting at work or something. (Unless I’m chairing. Gotta at least try and be professional then…)


☆. What’s your favourite kinks/tropes/pairing?

 I am ridiculously predictable. I like pairings with hero worship on one or both sides, preferably with an age difference and / or a suitably angsty reason why they can seemingly never be together. Class difference is a particular favourite, and I will always take historical homophobia - I never tire of retro buddy cops.

Same with tropes. Fake dating, misunderstandings, identity porn. I love it all.

Favourite Fictional Tropes


☆. Do you have a favourite fic of yours?

 It changes all the time. Right now I’ll go with the Tucker’s Luck fic that was just exactly what I wanted it to be, and the WW2 AU I wrote for Gordlock. Basically the most self indulgent fics!


☆. Your fic with the most kudos? 

Kink Meme Fills - collection of The Hobbit oneshots, mostly Boffins


☆. Anything you don’t like about your writing? 

I really struggle to write anything of a decent length. The longest individual fic I ever wrote was still only 39k, and I never actually finished it. Usually it’s more like 1 - 4k.


☆. Now something you do like? 

I think my stuff flows nicely. That sounds like the dumbest thing ever, but I feel like it’s an easy read because of the ~flow~.


☆. Tag some of your favourite writers.

Open tags to anyone who wants to do it - I love you all!

Fabric samples are a great way to avoid costly mistakes, as well as providing a fab source of material for your crafts box.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale. You can read more about it HERE . 1975

It had blue and red lights, and appeared to be moving towards them. They watched for a few minutes and the next day reported the sighting to UK UFO. FM: " I was up really late and i needed to use the bathroom so i got up and my side of the bed is by the window, so i had a look out. i saw an object shaped like a typical space ship would look, but it had blue and red lights and appeared to be coming towards me. i watched it for a while and then left to use the bathroom and by the time i had returned (5 minutes later) the mysterious lights had almost disappeared into the distance.
