have you ever fallen in love with a song and put it on repeat for 8 days straight and literally bathed in it and memorized every word and breath and drum beat and guitar string and just married it because wow perfect and then overplayed it and got bored of it but still had a special place in your heart for it
because i have
Let me explain you a thing.
When I say I adore Misha Collins, I don’t mean because he’s attractive or funny (though that comes into it), I mean because he is a genuinely nice person.
I was at Asylum 10 this weekend, and for Misha’s autographs he wasn’t allowed to personalise things because of time constraints which is fair enough. However, when I was getting mine, I managed to blurt out (I mean it I was shaking really hard) how important it was to meet him, as Asylum 10 was a goal for me not to kill myself.
The second I said that he stopped writing and looked up at me, and his response was:
“You need better goals.” I almost laughed but I was really trying not to cry, so I responded with:
“No. I don’t.” At this point, he reached across the table and grabbed my hand, pen still off the paper. He looked up at me, shaking and almost crying and smiled and said the simplest thing. At this point he let my hand go.
“See you next year?” I nodded, I was shaking really hard and I picked up the picture and went to leave, but he grabbed my hand again and pulled me back a little. He asked for my name and then wrote what it says on the top left hand corner. He squeezed my hand and smiled and then let me go.
NO THAT IS NOT OKAY
are you metatron ?
Ah. You’re actually not awful at that.
Lets just admit now that we would all parent like Dean Winchester.
You know, when you have kids and you love them and you’re proud of them you just want to kiss them on the mouth sometimes.
this is quality humor right here
I’m by no means an authority, but hopefully I’ll be a little bit helpful!
A Story From Beginning to End
The Idea Stage
Is there anything more exciting than this stage? The rush of ideas, the crackle of creation, the pure, unadulterated joy? Probably not. But that doesn’t mean it’s the easiest.
Avoiding Pitfalls: Too Many Bunnies
The idea stage can definitely be the most fun part of a story. The problem can be having too many ideas. It can be overwhelming, getting struck by runaway bunnies fifty times a day, not to mention the doctor bills. There are a couple of methods you can go with here. One is to make a list and determine which ideas appeal to you the most, and then pick an order to write those stories in based on how much they excites you. Another is to discuss all ideas with a friend until one becomes clearer than the others. Another is to jump on the idea of the moment and discuss with a friend until it catches fire and becomes something you absolutely HAVE to write. Or, you can just pick one at random and run with it.
Avoiding Pitfalls: Too Many Stories
The best piece of advice I can offer you (from personal experience) is this: Work on ONE story at a time. The only time I work on more than one story at a time is if I am working on VERY short stories, and even then never more than three at most. When I’m working on an epic, I have to focus solely on that and immerse myself in that world until it’s done, or it will never get finished.

“ I mean, what’s better than having the person you love love you? that’s pretty exciting. it’s pretty amazing, actually.
more than 3 years… and I’m still not done laughing.
can you imagine how much time it must have taken them to shoot this scene with jared going crazy every 5 seconds
I still wish they could have done the whole thing where Jared played that kid and that kid played Jared, not so we saw their “real” selves. It’s basically just fantasy because that would be impossibly hard but I would LOVE to see Jared doing shit like the above for an entire episode. HE’S JUST SO PERFECT AT IT.
