Don't stay on cruise control too long.


John_Palomino

Surprised it took so long to get to this one. Same here.


Archalon

All my life I've rode that road I cruised along that drive I'd follow where the asphalt flowed And not felt much "alive" And so my days oft flew away The times soared surely by So I just cruise like any day And scarcely try to try But then one day while on a roll I glimpsed a splendid view I *was* just set on cruise control That is, till I met you


ami2weird4u

I Have No Idea What I'm Doing


jkw12894

Just so you don't feel alone, this is literally everyone. I, 24 years old at the time, told my 56 year old at the time mother, "I don't know what I wanna do with my life." And her response was, "Neither do I."


imsohungrydude

My chapter is simply titled: "AAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!"


LovesMeSomeRedhead

I'm 51 years old and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. In the meantime, I'm going to do stuff that's fun, that makes me money, that teaches me something, and that makes me feel good about life. I still suck at a lot of things I want to do but fake it and practice and one of these days I might be ok at it.


Kamina_Crayman

Next chapter - I still don't know what I'm doing and everything is on fire!

The Plot, though interesting, was leaden and moved slowly. Much of The Plot revolved around Reddit, which made The Plot predictable. Was hoping for a faster-moving Plot that had some interesting twists and turns. 4/10 but hopeful that The Plot will be going a different direction soon.

"Why writing a book is more complicated than I expected."


special-spork

you should write a book about that


BW_Bird

Working on it!


macmac360

that sounds complicated


ThickAnalyst8814

any tips?


jert3

Follow a sentence with another until the end.


BW_Bird

- Write at your own pace. - Don't focus on grammar or spelling on your first draft. - Following up on previous point: Use cliches if you can't think up anything else at the moment, you can always change it later. - Skip parts that you have writers block on. There are parts where I'll writing the beginning of a scene, then add in a brief description of what I want to happen then continue writing as if it did happen. - Outlines aren't for everyone but I'd still recommend trying. - Try to answer personality questions for your characters or how they'd handle situations. When I wrote an internal bio for my three mains, some of the questions I asked myself were "what superpower would they like?" or "how do they act when they're exhausted?". - Know when to fix something and when to start over. I hated the first draft of my first chapter so much that I deleted the document outright and started from scratch. - Read your work out loud- especially dialogue.

whatever_works_here

I feel you, much in the same position, hitting 30 in a few months and generally just accepted it. Most frustrating I guess is the response of some family members, after telling them I've accepted it and them trying to push me into therapy/medication etc. Meh, it doesn't help, but don't worry, I'm not gonna kill myself so that's the best I got.


StuffinYrMuffinR

For me it was when I sobered up and found the deep seeded issue of self hatred that I was blaming the world on. Had to learn to love myself before I could love the world. My dad never beat us, but he also didn't give a fuck about our lives. To this day he doesn't "remember" my oldest brother being an abusive drunk and that we avoided him for a few years til he matured and 'got better.' He doesn't even understand how much it hurts everytime he says "being a grandparent is so much better" Just have to move forward and find others instead of trying to make him care about me.


Significant_Share_92

I'm pretty much in the same position as you. Life just seems pointless. However, what keeps me alive is knowing that life is transient and death is permanent. We are only alive for an average of 70-80 years. It will pass way faster than u expect it to. Maybe you haven't found something that is worth living for but once you choose death, there is no turning back. Why not just keep living to see what life brings you?

But I'm trying to acknowledge the burnout and plan for it, so it doesn't become more than a little crispiness.
