  1.  A belated Happy Birthday!

    1. Dylan

      Dylan

      Thank you <3

  2. Hi Dylan. You have been very quiet for almost a year now, I trust you intend to stick around. About time for an update (?). Haven't lost your muse, I'm sure it is around somewhere. Do hope you can find some time for us. Your rep says it well, ' Someone Likes Me ', so don't be a stranger.

    I want to wish you a Happy Birthday (how ever old or young you are) and that you had an awesome day of celebration. Sending positive thoughts your way.

     

    Take care

      Thank you so much for the birthday wishes. I'm late to seeing these but still, I appreciate it! ❤️

       

      I actually have written a few chapters that I haven't posted here. I kinda have lost motivation for Muscle Memory.. I want to finish it but I also want to make it better than it is. There's the urge to just rewrite it that's warring with the urge to just finish it how it is. I'll figure out something. In the meantime, I'd like to practice writing other things. Maybe if I come back with more skill I can salvage what I have.

       

      It was my 18th birthday, and I started this thing like two years ago. Obviously a lot of things happen between 16 and 18 that change who I am. My love for writing has stuck though, so that's good. 

       

      Thanks again. 😊

  3. Happy Birthday Dylan!

      Thank you! <3

  4. Haha yeah I'm mostly recovered now. I've mostly been writing on the bus, as I got accepted into a nursing program which I'm super excited about, but I'm gonna try and get this next chapter out sometime this weekend!
  5. Yes sir, I just posted a new chapter called "The Quiet". I'm also working on the next one, which should be out soon! I've been missing you too, and writing. Life has been a, well, for lack of a better term, bitch. I had an amazing summer all the way up until I got wasted and fractured my spine in two places after a concert, and that hurt like hell. I planned on updating during recovery but never got around to it. Here I am, though What about you? How're you?
  6. I completely agree! I need to find a way to get my readers to enjoy reading through her as well. Thank you, I'll keep this in mind, and I hope I am successful
  7. Hey everyone! I'm posting here to hopefully try to generate some more interaction between myself and people about my story. I'm a very inexperienced writer, and any honest advice is appreciated (but that's not why I'm posting this). I'm hoping to spark up a conversation about how you feel so far about Muscle Memory. As a writer, my readers' thoughts and feelings are a big part of what fuels me to continue this story. Feel free to share anything, whether it's relating to a certain character or their experiences, how you feel about a certain situation, or just if you want to ask me anything about Muscle Memory specifically or even my writing general. So, to try and get the ball rolling, here is some random thoughts I've compiled about how this all came about: Muscle Memory is my very first attempt at writing fiction. Like, ever. Besides some poetry a few years back, I've never sat down and just written anything more than a few paragraphs, so starting this book was a bit daunting. Especially since I was just out of freshman year of highschool. I started the first chapter not really having any idea where it was going, but soon, a story started to take shape in my mind. Very quickly, I realized how much I loved characters. At times, I worry that there are so many in my book that they seem flat, or that there are too many for my readers to keep track of. It was definitely a risk going into my first writing experience with like 20 characters to juggle with, not to mention that I've basically made each character have something they are struggling with. Again, I worry that I'm losing depth by having so many different story arcs intertwining in my mind, but I also kind of love it. It's what I like in books. Another thing I wanted to mention is that somehow, I unexpectedly fell in love with the villain of my story. I love writing her, and I had lost hope for this story after, say, chapter 6, until one quiet night in late December, around 11 or 12, I was walking down this road and the song DNA by Lia Marie Johnson started playing through my earbuds. The song resonated deeply with me, and I also felt it tugging at something that I had put towards the back of my mind for 5 or so months. I realized that it was a newfound inspiration to give my character Alexa more depth. To do this, I felt as if she needed her own POV, which wasn't planned whatsoever. I've gotten pretty much only negative feedback on this, which saddens me, but now she is very important to the story as a whole. I've had people complain that it takes away too much from Wes and Ethan's story, which I disagree with. This is more than a romance to me. It's deeper. I feel that people who skip the Alexa chapters are missing an integral part of Muscle Memory. So regardless of how my readers feel, I still have a few more POV chapters planned. Anyway, I could go on for days about this, and that's enough rambling for now. Now it's your turn. What are your thoughts?
  8. New chapter complete, it's going up tomorrow morning. Hope everyone enjoys it :)

      First, it's great news you are posting the next chapter.

      Second, the last post was six months ago - problem, I have completely forgotten the story - solution, can you do a summary of what's happened so far? You know like: previously on....

       

      Otherwise I prob have to read back because it will be like coming into the movie halfway through.

      Hang in there Dylan. You're doing great!

  9. Oh, you're talking Drag Race! Count me in. Are you seeing the new season? Which girls do you like? 

  10. Dylan

    Drag Race

    I loooove Alaska, but she became a lot less likable in AS2. I was rooting for Katya 100% and I'm still a bit salty about that, I do think that the producers swayed things in Alaska's favor a lot. Most of the season there was a bottom 3, but when Alaska fell into the bottom 3, they changed it to bottom 2. There were times when Alaska won the lipsync when I felt as if someone else should have, and Ru knew who had what lipstick so I really do feel like riggamoris was a thing that season lol. But still, Alaska deserved the crown, she's still one of my favorite queens, just after Katya and Bianca.

    Drag Race

    Interesting, I didn't like Phi Phi but I love Alyssa. Especially in AS2, she's just so likable to me. I like Violet, but season 7 as a whole was underwhelming for me (with the exception of Trixie and Katya). I was very hyped up for Acid and she let me down, I definitely thought she'd be top 3. On the other hand, Bianca is my favorite queen to ever be on the show, and I love Latrice as well. I like Bob, but I was rooting for Kim and Naomi to be honest, even though I knew Bob deserved the crown more.

    Drag Race

    Haha, I've been wanting to get into Scream Queens but haven't watched any episodes yet. Also, I actually don't watch Drag Race on TV, I find it online as we don't get VH1 or Logo sadly. I'm pretty sure Drag Race is on Netflix in Europe, right?

    Drag Race

    I like Eureka, but she definitely seems to be a bit too shady at times (it was disrespectful to keep calling Jaymes "Milwaukee" during Untucked in my opinion)

    Drag Race

    So, I can't be the only one here who is obsessed with RuPaul's Drag Race. I'm pretty much addicted to watching it, I love the comedy and performances especially. It amazes me how much work and talent goes into transforming from a man into a female illusionist, Anyway, Season 9 is starting, and lots of new queens have been added to mix. I see lots of talent and potential in every single one of them and I can't wait for more episodes. My favorite queens so far are Nina Bonina (Banana Fofana Osama Bin Laden) Brown, Sasha Velour, and Shea Coulee, but Aja and Farrah have caught my eye as well. Who are your favorites, and who do you think will make it the furthest? Attached is an image of one of the contestants Farrah Moan and holy moly, she's gorgeous. I hope she goes far
  15. So I'm trying to write... but it's really hard when I'm jamming to Lorde's new song, it gets me all pumped up which is NOT the mood I need for the chapter I'm writing lol but it's so addicting

    1. Dylan

      Dylan

      Yeah, sometimes music can really hit me in the feels. But most of the time it calms me and puts me in a better mood, so I'm almost always listening to some sort of music :)

    2. Dylan

      Dylan

      Nah, no music is outdated. If at least one person enjoys it, it's just as important as something that's current and mainstream in my opinion :)
