I just typed up a chapter of a new story and posted it to KP, and I already feel like it's hopeless to go any further. It reads awkwardly, the character is boring and the world is bland. I really want to write a story, but when every other sentence is crap I don't know what to do.

Write more. Write twice as much as you would as if every sentence was good.

Fine then, I'll write it myself!
(Oh yeah, I really have to write it myself, don't I?)

Thanks, it is really good advice that's easy to forget. When you pour your heart and soul for 1500 words, and it's not immediately amazing, it's hard to convince yourself that it's worth it.

Also, it is called City of Fools, and the first chapter is called Wordless. I don't like begging, but KP is all I really have for constructive criticism. I'll get back to google drive.

idk i got a rly bad grade (c+) today in science i'm not telling my parents i just wanna die??? like right now please?? like. dead
idk i should go back to the school counsellor but she was a little useless

yeah it is and it's dumb. now we are just making an acronym for every kind of people. the reason the acronym is there is to distinguish people from everyone else because they are different from the norm. i don't need to say "cisgender" so that people can tell that i'm not talking about a non-binary gender. i can just say "girl" or "boy" unless specified otherwise. :( nnrggh.

and c+ isn't that bad, i don't think. i wouldn't worry about it. :)

lmao no cisgender is not in the lgbtq acronym. it's literally not. the lgbtq acronym is for QUEER people not for cishet ppl. the acronym isn't there to distingush you from the norm. what is the norm? do you mean the norm like cisnormativity/heteronormativity. do you mean that queer people aren't normal?? cisgender people aren't 'normal' and transgender people aren't 'abnormal'. they're just two different ways of being binary genders. it's just there for you to have a safe community in which you are included. (but can we talk about how i know so many lesbians/gays/bisexual people who will discriminate against trans and nonbinary people?). i don't even like using the lgbtq acronym or any variation of it anyway because it always excludes someone. and gsrm is made by a pedophile or someone so i regret using that. mogii is way better:Marginalized Orientations, Gender Identity, and Intersex.

and about new labels/acronym for every kind of person, we kind of need labels? like labels are there to help people. i understand it's kind of frustrating, but labels helped me a lot. whenever people say "we don't need a label for every kind of gender or sexuality" i'm hearing "i don't want to acknowledge that everyone is different, and sexualities exist out of the western society and i don't want to learn about different sexualities and gender."

sorry if this sounded a lil angry or if i misinterpreted your post.
if you didn't get it, cisgender isnt part of the lgbtq acronym, there is no 'normal', and labels are important.

ok. i thought it was, because some people include it in the acronym. they must be wrong then. but i feel like there doesn't need to be a name for it, that was just my opinion, OK? and i never said queer people weren't normal. i'm queer, and i'm not normal. what i meant was heteronormativity and "cisnormativity" or whatever you called it. sorry if i offended you, but you didn't need to get so defensive, all right? i'm on your team. i am a non-binary gender too, though i do not know what it is yet.

and.. labels are helpful. not important. labels do not define who you are as a person. they can, however, help you to meet other people, come to terms with yourself, and much more. but they aren't necessary. i struggle with this myself because i want to know who i am, i want to have a label so that i can identify with other people like me. but i need to realize, and i think so do you and many other people, that they aren't something that you should worry about all the time. you are so much more. :)

i kind of think we do need to have the term cisgender, because if there wasn't it would seem like being transgender is abnormal. like if there wasn't the term cisgender, what would you call those people? 'normal'? i feel like calling cis ppl normal is harmful to trans ppl. i know that's your opinion though so ok. and yeah heteronormativity and cisnormativity can be harmful to the queer community. sorry if i sounded angry or something, i just get passionate abt this topic a lot.

labels are helpful, but they can also be important. they're certainly not important to everyone but they can be to some. and right, my label isn't something that i should have to worry about all the time, but it is something i identify with strongly and am proud of.

Kind of like how there's no term for non-virgins. You're right, the lack of labels shows something about a culture.
