After a successful Kickstarter and three years of hard work and love, our high-speed platform game Freedom Planet is now available on Steam! We’ve mixed together dozens of the best gameplay elements of 90s-style Japanese platformers such as Sonic’s speed, Mega Man’s combat prowess and Gunstar Heroes’ insane boss fights. We’d love it if you could help us battle the nefarious Lord Brevon and his army of shade troopers!
this is a solid question

So here is something I haven’t heard many people talk about. There’s this Thing that “writers write.” And while, yes, you do have to at some point produce work to be a writer, it’s often used as a bludgeon for “you aren’t writing enough words" and "you aren’t writing frequently enough" and "I am beginning to doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion" (wait, no, wrong cultural reference). This post I recently reblogged with advice on submitting veers close to it with the note that “so long as you’re writing you are going to get better just by practicing.”
And here’s the thing: some of the biggest leaps I’ve taken in writing ability happened while I was doing other things. Now, I would not necessarily recommend this as a strategy, but there are times in everyone’s life when things happen and writing…doesn’t happen, for a while.
For me a big one was the last semester of college. Ohgod thesis! Ohgod stress of figuring out what happens after I graduate! Ohgod everything! I wrote basically zero fiction. Even after I graduated, it took me months to even open a file. I was convinced I had lost It. (You probably know the It I’m talking about.) At the end of six months, all the writing work I had done was agonizingly slow revisions on a short story for a particular anthology call. A short story, mind, that I had already drafted and done several rounds of revisions on two years before. I gritted my teeth. I sent it off.
I started drafting a new novel. A few months later I got an idea for a short story before falling asleep, wrote a quick first draft before work the next day, and many revisions later am crossing my fingers over a revise-and-resubmit request for it that I just sent back in. It’s probably my best short story to date. I’m looking into picking up an idea I had three summers ago, that I couldn’t write then but I think I could write now.
There’s a confidence in my writing now there wasn’t a year and a half ago, and somehow I picked it up while I was panicking, while I was job-searching, while I was planning how to schedule my classwork around my thesis around my work-study job. I have no fucking clue how to explain this.
So practice, certainly, practice all you want, it definitely helps…but sometimes writers don’t write. And that can help you level up too.
Portal 2 is causing me feels even though I’ve known all the spoilers for ages.
