    I always chalked it up to everyone just growing up and lacking time. I've definitely seen it happen with people where, they used to write a lot, but don't anymore.

    But on the other hand, looking at myself... I'm actually busier than most people I know, but I still do all the stuff I'm saying people don't have time for anymore... so, I don't know.

    Maybe I just type faster.

    Wow, fine, I'll send you tweets of pictures of my new D&D bookshelf. Also a deep analysis of the conifers in the Neverwinter Wood.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    It's probably not just a matter of time, but also a matter of interest.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    Extrapolating further, what's your opinion on why a long post has become a total exception, not to mention a nearly non-occurrance? Feels a bit like sephia-colored skies... I think i've seen about one such happening for each decade of life.
    With regards to you and your posting, its because you post esoteric, roleplaying faux-deep semi-philosophical bullshit essayposts that people would rather observe than engage in.

    Please keep it up. This is the most fun I've had on BL outside of dedicated fanfic and RP threads in actual years.

    My Fanfics. Read 'em. Or not.

    Why tell someone in 500 words what I can say in 30?

    Brevity is the soul of wit.

    Well, it depends. 30 words to get your point across is good, but it has a different amount of satisfaction compared to 500 words breaking it down in more depth. You can't say the same thing with the same amount of thoroughness, like if you were breaking down what's good about an RP.

    I wrote my graduate thesis on my phone at a bar because every time I tried to write at my computer in my room or a cafe or the library I got writer’s block and just ended up staring at a blank page for hours

    I think the constrained viewpoint of a phone screen helped mute the dread that I wouldn’t finish on time by obscuring how much I hadn’t done yet so I could just focus on the specific portion I was writing at the moment

    Yeah but often times someone hands me an essay and at the end of the day nothing was communicated. Sure they might have had the same problem handing me two sentences, but then at least they only wasted a few seconds of my life.
