News

Last Updated Aug 11, 2019

Two new chapters added to The Last World With The Separating Crystal since the last news update, making for a total of six now.

I know that they aren’t long and it takes time but the story is technically complete, only it’s in a different language and full of spelling errors. I even notice them now but how did I ever live without autocorrect? Being dyslexic, and pretty severely according to the one that diagnosed me, has always frustrated me. I loved the magic contained in the books that our mother used to read for us, but why was it so hard to learn how to myself!? I wasn’t getting any better like the other kids, but I really, really wanted to be able to read on my own. So I got the picture books that I knew the words of, and stubbornly started memorising words. I have a very good photographic memory, and letter by letter doesn’t work for me, so while I read faster (need to stop proofreading so fast but my eyes hurt my brain, as autocorrect isn’t exactly always... correct, it often likes to change things without permission and just blah, there’s no perfect help for dyslexia yet) than the average person, I’m completely fecked as soon as it’s a word I’m unfamiliar with.

Also yes, I am bilingual, I grew up learning how to speak two languages, but English isn’t a native language here. Originally I learned British English and that’s what we’re taught in school as well, but you can’t escape American influences and alas, now it has tainted me! Hehe. People usually think I’m Canadian when they hear me speak for some reason? I don’t really know what I sound like, apart from that in both languages I tend to talk really fast, and my mouth still isn’t keeping up with my brain. And if my brain works ten times as fast as my mouth and people think I talk fast and I’m dyslexic on top? This makes writing really, really slow compared to my thoughts and it can be a pain sometimes, but I still think it’s fun to write things down, even if nobody reads them. 

I don’t know if my stories are any good or not so I don’t exactly feel like promoting them and people then telling me they suck. I have less than zero self confidence and criticism hits really hard, if there’s changes in my language that need to be made then feel free. But also don’t tell me you like it if you think it’s poop, just ignore it and move on with your life and have a good one, there’s plenty to read, you’re sure to find something you like. I won’t say better since it’s really a matter of taste, I mean I’ve read and liked or loved “the best literature”! But I also play otome games on Vita sooo... I have no right to say anything. But don’t expect me to describe anything too “risqué” as I always skip the sex parts, they bore me to death. I joke about it plenty and well... my mind isn’t just in this place, it’s split, so I have some strange sources. I have been making extra commentary on the parts from that point of view and why I wrote this story, and then later on another one before... well things got messier than usual. It does even explain the title, why it’s called “the last”, well it’s obviously because there used to be more hehe. 

I could publish more of my writing here but then I’d have to warn you: welcome to the chaos on the other side of reality... 

It’s even more of a mess than most people there know so if you think this is messed up then yeah, it’s quite, to put it mildly, fecking weird. This story is one of the least weird things that have happened. 

 

 

Old news: Hello there. Let me tell you some things about myself, and why updates might be infrequent.

I’m not the most social person ever, being that I'm an introvert and have social anxiety disorder, so making contact is hard for me. But I hope you’ve enjoyed my writing so far, I’m having a hard time actually working on it due to my extreme light sensitivity which can make my entire field of vision flash with bright light rapidly. Or occasionally just make me barely see anything due to everything being covered in white fog. So I can only handle light for a few hours a day, the rest is spent in total darkness. Well to most people, when the sun is out I can still see just fine, it’s other people that call my apartment completely dark and claim that it’s impossible to see anything. 

If you have a similar problem with finding lowest brightness too bright and have an iPhone I have found something that makes it even darker. It’s under the Accessibility features and is called “Reduce white point” and there is also “Smart invert” for apps and sites that don’t offer “night mode” if white on black is something you’d prefer, this does turn off “night shift” however (mine is automatically turned on for 23:59 minutes a day since permanent doesn’t seem to be an option).

Profile Information

I’m not real. You’re just imagining things. 

 

Just the hand that conveys the words that come from a world unknown to you...

 

 I write on my phone since it’s my only option right now so yeah, that’s a thing? 

I’d appreciate it if any criticism has some sort of a solution for the problem, I’m very much self taught.

But I can’t do much about my head being a mess, sorry about that.
