Lol. I just posted an hour ago. But I'm posting again.
Because I have God and anime on my side.
But I feel so comfortable with you guys, and I'm not quite sure if it's because y'all aren't commenting as much and therefore feel like no one reads these or because I've realized something cool over the past few months.
A lot of people (especially on YouTube or in a fanbase) there are a lot of the same type of people (not putting y'all into categories or anything—bare with me). Example: PewDiePie has some of the worst fans. I know, because I'm one of them. Rick and Morty has an even worse fanbase. And then there are those who like Once Upon A Time. Those who like specific authors. People that like The Office. People that actually think anime is cool (*cough*). It's really interesting to see different people liking the same things. Of course, I'm thinking of the extremists, but I think I'm one of them xD.
So, anime. I like Japanese humor. And I'm trying to learn the language—mostly so I don't have to read stupid subtitles. Which is actually common to those who read manga and watch anime.
Doctor Who. Don't even get me started on why I love this one.
PewDiePie. He's salty and the world needs more salt like his. (xD that doesn't sound weird at all) And I find him hilarious.
What am I getting at?
Most of you who followed me are a lot like me with the same interests and whatnot. Most of you love mermaids. The other 10% are probably in the "other" category.
Honestly, I have no idea why you guys are following me, but I love that you are! I've made some awesome friends on here.
Man, this is getting away from my point and you've probably already given up reading! Aghhhhh
For a long time, I tried being "professional sounding" and whatever but it's so stuffy. The only thing that should seem professional is the way I present my books and how they look as a paperback and ebook.
So recently, I've become more "casual". (And using a lot of quotation marks, apparently). I like being playful and (failing at) being funny. I like putting memes in random updates in "Curious?" and laughing at myself in my book because I did something wrong and didn't catch before. And man, do I love reading y'all's punny jokes in The One-Hundred on that one chapter (if you haven't seen it, you need to—but don't ask me which one!).
Plus, I'm that kind of person that doesn't connect to someone who acts proper and professional. I want goofy and weird and giggly (unless you need to be professional, then I'll give you a weird look). So that's why I've been so laid back. And I feel like it's reflecting in my quality of work—meaning, the quality is higher and I'm not rushing to get things out there (even if I need to). It's letting my mind cool down and stress go away.
I'm in a comfortable spot. Not stressed. The only thing I stress about is my connection with y'all because y'all are awesome and supportive and probably getting tired of hearing me say "y'all". So that's it.
Sorry if it made no sense. *~*
