GPOY

Tuo gif kuvaa vähän liian hyvin kirjoitusprosessia. On ollut niin kuraa ja ihan hirveetä tajunnanvirtaa ainakin puolet tekstistä. Sinänsä tykkään siitäkin, vaikka en mitään tajuakaan. Ainakin sitä on ihan superhauska kirjottaa. Vähän esimerkkiä:

Minä katson tummaa vettä, sitä joka tarttuu syvyyteen. Sitä joka tarttuu minuun ja vetää minuun pinnan alle. Tumma vesi ympäröi minua ja se on niin raskasta että en jaksan nousta enää ylös. Minä kuolen tänne ja täällä minä voin olla turvallisena. Turvaa tuo tumman veden lisäksi merikasvit ja merivuokko. Olen merivuokko, olen merihevonen, olen merisiili. Hieman pimeämpää tämä on nyt. Minä en kestä, katson televisioita ja siellä näkyy vaikka mitä. Minä en jaksa enää tätä, minä haluan eteenpäin jo. Päästäkää minut matkaan, antakaan minun lentää kuin lokit liitävät itämeren yli. Antakaa minun lentää kuin talitiaiset lentävät eteläään. Antakaa minun mennä. Haluan mennä Delhiin, Tokioon, Sydneyyn ja Varsovaan. Helsinkikin kävisi, mikä tahansa muu paitsi tämä. Minä katson katkenneita kiskoja, näillä kulki vielä eilen raitiovaunu, sellainen vihreä pieni toukka.

Että sellasta. (Ihan oikeasti mulla on myös varsinaista juonta jossain välissä.)

Would your character ever pt.1

I was browsing through Screnzy forums and found WYCE -thread. I really want to answer ALL THE QUESTIONS, so I'm gonna do it here.

Name: Characters answer. (my comment)

WYCE become a pirate or a ninja?
Katariina: Are you crazy?
Hanna: No. I wouldn't be any good.
Marinne: Maybe. I'd rather be a pirate.
Tuuli: C'mon, ninjas are so much better than pirates!

WYCE use a precious childhood trinket as a weapon?
Katariina:Of course. Actually, I don't really have any precious childhood stuff.
Hanna: No! Guess, I'm a bit sentimental about my stuff.
Marianne: Maybe, I was in danger.
Tuuli:Yeah, same as Marianne.

WYCE stalk someone?
Katariina: Never. I'm not that kind of person. (She's the kind of person that other people stalk.)
Hanna:No, that's creepy. (She totally would though, she's kinda obsessive.)
Marianne: No! You need to be pretty sick to stalk someone.
Tuuli: Yeah. Again I have to side with Marianne.

WYCE ever become an evil dictator?
Katariina: *grinning* That would be fun.
Hanna: No way, I'm nice!
Marianne: Me too!
Tuuli: Yeah, being an evil dictator is not really my thing.


WYCE live in a basement?
Katariina: Never.
Hanna: I might, it'd get pretty lonely though. (She'd live in a basement if Katariina asked her to.)
Marianne: No way, I'd go crazy.
Tuuli: No, basements don't really suit me.

WYCE do the cinnamon challenge?
Katariina:What's that? Oh... Why are people doing this? God, everyone's so stupid these days.
Hanna: No, I agree with Katariina. (But she might do it)
Marianne: Yes! Hanna, you're totally doing it with me.
Tuuli:I'll do it with you, Marianne.

WYCE walk out of the house wearing nothing but a bikini top, a tutu, and polka dot leggings?
Katariina: No, don't be stupid.
Hanna: No, that'sreally not my style.
Marianne: Yes, that sounds awesome!
Tuuli: Maybe. I have more like a hippy-style though.

WYCE go clubbing?
Katariina: Yes. To pic up men.
Hanna:I don't really like clubbing, but I'd go with Katariina.
Marianne: Hellsyes!
Tuuli: Yes! Sounds fun.

Would your character ever join a protest rally?
Katariina: No.
Hanna: I don't think so.
Marianne: Yes. Even just for the heck of it.
Tuuli: Yes, I have, multiple times.

WYCE drink a raw egg?
Katariina: Eww, no.
Hanna: If I have to.
Marianne: Maybe, if there's a good reason.

Katariina: No, I have more than enough.
Hanna: No! (Yes, if Katariina asked.)
Marianne: No, but I don't see a problem if someone else does.
Tuuli: You don't see a problem? Are you crazy? Prostitution is just one patriarchal way too...
Marianne: Oh, shut up.

WYCE do NaNoWriMo?
Katariina: No. You can't really gain anything from it, right?
Hanna: You can gain experience with writing and it might be fun.
Katariina: Don't argue with me.
Hanna: Sorry. (Hanna would totally do NaNo, she loves to write.)
Marianne: No, writing is not my thing.
Tuuli: What's that? Oh, yes that sounds fun. I'm always up for new, exiting things!

WYCE join the quest to destroy the One Ring?
Katariina: Destroy? Are you crazy? (She'd totally keep it.)
Hanna: Yes! That'd be the dream. I would throw The Ring to Mount Doom, even if it meant getting my finger chewed off.
Marianne: Oh god, again with the Lord of the Rings. I would NOT do this, I've heard enough from being a friend of Hanna's since preschool.
Tuuli: I might do it, if I had

WYCE learn French?
Katariina: I might.
Hanna: Bien sûr! J'aime le français.

Katariina: Why would you do something like that with no gain?
Hanna: Emm... Writing is really fun and...
Katariina: Hanna, what did I say about arguing with me?

Tuuli: I would try both.

Would your character ever jump off a cliff?
Katariina: What? NO!
Hanna: No, I'm not suicidal. (And she would if Katariina so wished.)

Tuuli: Oh, that might be fun.

WYCE run an ultramarathon?
Katariina: Yes, I like running.
Hanna: Maybe, but I don't think I'd like it that much.

Marianne: Yes, I have, actually.
Tuuli: Right there with you, sis.

WYCE have a weakness for corn-dogs?
Katariina: No, those are disgusting.

WYCE use their (or someone else's) small child to meet guys/girls?
Katariina: I don't need any children to meet people.
Hanna: No, that's creepy.
Marianne: No, that's seems a bit weird. And desperate.
Tuuli: No. I don't need to meet guys, I have my sweetheart.

WYCE loot a shop during a natural disaster?
Katariina: No, I don't need to.
Hanna: No, stealing is wrong.
Marianne: There's a part of me that wants to say yes. It depends on the shop. I could loot some multinational corporation store, but not any small business owner's.
Tuuli: I'm with Marianne on this one too.

WYCE commit a horrendous crime?
Katariina: Is murder horrendous?
Hanna: Yes. I can't believe I did it, I'm really not that kinda person.
Marianne: No. Maybe I might do some misdemeanors.
Tuuli: Nothing horrendous, but I would break the law for a good cause.

Dear Author

My charaters want to say stuff to me:
Dear Author,
I know you kinda want me to grow up already, but really I like being a teenager. It suits me better and I get to feel the first love when it's just very new and all. Just one little request, could you make Katariina's divorce happen a little sooner? I really would like to be with her and just her. And why do you have to make Kevin so nice? I would be a lot easier to hate him for being married to the woman I love if he wasn't so goddamn nice. We'll I guess I'll manage, since I know they are gonna get divorce when I turn 18 (and move to her house <3). (I know glimpses about my life after that and it seems really scary. Please don't kill me, thanks!)
Yours truly,
Hanna Harmaaranta
Dear Author,
why do you make me fall in love? It's so not me. And suddenly I have have all these feelings and I feel lost? WTF are you doing to me? Well, I guess I'll manage if you keep Hanna at bay. She could be a little more submissive still, I think she's not as devouted to me as I'd like to.
Katariina Rosendahl
P.S. Thanks for letting me kill people! That's awesome, I've always wanted to do that. I just hate that I have to wait for that until I'm 35.

You know you're writing lit fic when

Ok, I was going throught this thread and decided to pick the ones that apply to me. LitFic is so for me. <3
  • People ask you a direct, simple questions about your novel and your answer always seems to be "uuuuhhhhhh..." 
  • After planning your novel for weeks, you realise you have neglected the plot.
  • when you can write five thousand words and then realize that your character is alone in a room and hasn't said a word the entire time.
  • when you get about 50K words into the thing, you get distracted by the thought that you're actually writing a huge interconnected multilevel personal essay, which of course will be impossible to sell to a publisher, let alone market
  • When you sit back after planning and think "you know what,even I probably wouldn't read this."
  • There are so many cigarettes in your novel you gave up quitting.
  • You're not sure if you're stable enough to be writing about anyone who is that messed up. 
  • Making tea counts as 'action'.
  • Your character is doomed to spend over three fourths of the book literally talking to herself/himself.
  • All weather is more than just weather!
  • When you're planning on killing a character in the first chapter, but you're not writing a murder mystery.
  • When your main character doesn't have any friends. Who needs those, anyway?
  • you're adding references to "Dante's Inferno", even though you've never read it. You just think it sounds amazing.
  • When you sit at the computer, try to think of a plot, and realize deep things about you character's past; and still have no plot.
  • When your so called plot is just characters experiencing life in whatever setting you decided to put them in.
  • When the MC has a meaningless or unsatisfying sexual encounter. 
  • When you spend twenty minutes searching name meanings so that you can use a name with the same meaning from a character from a previous book, so that people who look can realize the connection.
  • When literature itself is a theme.
  • When you have the most fun writing about a crazy person
  • When the main villain is an emotion
  • When your entire novel is a flashback with flashbacks within the flashbacks.  There are no "good" people, only the blindly naive.
  • You reference or allude to other works of Literary canon (10 points if you can make a non-obvious Shakespeare reference). 
  • When you start thinking the MC is actually completely insane, somewhere in an asylum telling these crazy stories.
  • When the central conflict doesn't get resolved until years after one party has died.
  • When you do include dialogue but it takes several pages just to have a simple conversation because there is more internal dialogue and description and mini-flashbacks than there is actual dialogue between characters.
  • When your character thinks they might have been alive for all of time. 
  • When one of your characters says "I'm in love" and that translates as "I'm in deep shit"
  • When someone says to you, "God, that's so depressing. Don't you write anything happy or light?"
  • People ask who the "good" or "bad" guys are in your novel and you have to explain that they're all just people - not good, bad, or anything else.
