so my character Helen is confined to a wheelchair because of a condition affecting her sense of balance, n some bad people is out to get her, which she finds out in the marketplace when some asshole starts shooting arrows at her. her companion / nurse / mother figure named Rosalind is there with her, and realizes whats going on. the first arrow misses them both, but once rosalind sees the shooter she puts herself between him and her bby Helen, and takes an arrow to the chest. she falls a little, but recovers enough to stumble back into Helen's chair- so she's like literally sitting on top of Helen, covering her body w her own, and she takes two more arrows and bleeds out on top of her charge,

so that's reason #1 why helen is traumatized asf but anyway

You know how sometimes the words just seem to happen and it's easy, more like you're discovering the perfect words than CHOOSING them. This is bc of the writing dimension. Writing is easiest when you connect to the writing dimension and channel these pre-existing words down.

Other times you have to draw the words out of yourself and that's slowwww but the Writing Dimension can strike at any time. And then you have the perfect words and everything just happens how you want it.

It's a legit thing and nobody can persuade me otherwise

Also this is very similar to my own theory/philosophy of Art and the Universe, maybe I'll write an essay on it sometime.

note: Art refers to The Arts, visual+writing+music etc

I need to choose one of my plots and stick with it!! im leaning towards the constellation thing with the sleepers but idk!! either that or the crossing the rift thing but ahhh.

I got really into old-time gallic/celtic fairy mythology a year or two back and am sorta resurrecting that interest for one of my plot ideas (sleeping beneath the hills/tasks to not wake them up/borders between worlds blur one night of the year/don't ever leave your westward windows open) type thing haha. idk its interesting but I feel that celtic fairy mythology has become sorta overdone, probably because its a ready-made world for all "dark fairytale" things lmao so im trying to find a way to focus it back a bit on the whole constellation/star-children idea that is the other basis for this world.

also should I make these children being forced to pretty much sacrifice themselves the typical ya novel age (15-18) or make it super heartbreaking and put them all at like 10-14 or just fucking mix the two and have it be 10-18??

also for all my different novel ideas I have different main characters and I love them all with all my heart. theres Haf, a young girl from a fishing community whos short and wild and gives lip to pretty much everyone, then theres Nanna, who ran away from her nation who forced her into servitude when her parents couldn't pay taxes and is now illegally working in another nation and she's cunning and tries to be a cool loner but is a dork who falls for like every pretty girl she meets. then theres Ever, whos a fucking badass who was from this old warrior family but then they fell into disgrace and went "well okay my lifes ruined time to run away with some criminals lets go" because she has zero chill like ever, and then theres Ivo who is really fed up with everyones crap and is tired of people being dicks but still is out to save the world from his sister because really he loves everyone he'd just never say it out loud
