Do you only do captions or do you have a profile where you do longer stories, like on AO3, DeviantArt or FF(.)net etc?



I only write captions here. I’m trying to expand my Tumblr into a website and having a lot of difficulty with it. Part of the issue of why I don’t post longer stories is that my posts are full of fucking typos. Every time I go back to read stuff, it’s just full of typos and grammar errors. So I’m really hesitant to post long form stuff, like long chapters a week apart or so, because I have a feeling I’ll have to go back in and do heavy editing to have it all mesh well. Makes me really self-conscious. Also, when I write something long – like a short story – it can take over an hour to read through it. Editing it can take up to five hours. It’s really exhausting. One day I hope to being able to have a paid editor at call.

Also, I do not write fanfic in any way, shape, or form. When I was in high school, I tried to write Gackt x Hyde fanfic and was so disgusted with myself that I deleted soon after. 

Don’t feel bad about guilty-pleasure fanfics. We’ve all been there, honey. We’ve all been there.

But it wasn’t a guilty pleasure thing… I didn’t find any pleasure in it at all. It’s just what every one else was doing in the fandom, so I tried it. I don’t even read fanfic. It makes me uncomfortable.
