I just updated my AO3 profile. I stated how comfortable I am with 1) works based on what I've created and 2) constructive criticism in the comments. I think other people should do the same. Please boost.

Hi, I'm apple. 🍎 You could also call me "pen". She/her/hers pronouns. I'm part of the You can find me on .

I'm still figuring out how the heck Mastodon (and Mastalab) works. I'm still figuring out the unspoken etiquette, too. Please bear with me.

I'm a shipper. I've seen TOS and TNG. I don't mind spoilers. If I was in Starfleet I'd be a red shirt, like Uhura.

Other fandoms I like:

Darcy Lewis from Thor and Dan Lewis from Venom being related to each other is a genius bit of fanon

I feel like every time I decide to start a writing project, I ask the question "How do I plot it? How do I develop ideas?"
And I still don't have an answer. I don't have a writing process that I know works for me 90% of the time.
The result is that I look at writing advice before any type of fiction.

If I had the energy to write Venom movie fanfic at this juncture, I would be powerful. I would hoard AO3 kudos like a dragon.

excellent article about prosthetics and ableism:

"The most disabling thing about missing my left arm is the way the world treats me, regardless of whether I put on a prosthesis for the day. “People have such rigid ideas about the human body,” says Sara Hendren, Professor at Olin College of Engineering and author of What Can a Body Do? “People wouldn’t make such a huge deal out of disability if they saw their own bodies as getting and receiving help when they need it.”

Maybe the Witcher books have beautiful prose in Polish - I don't know, because I don't speak Polish. But they're so badly written in English. How much of that is the translators' fault, I don't know.

Anyone else seeing this? I made a comment that included "" and got this from Facebook.

Impostor syndrome means concealing your weaknesses because you feel that exposing them would make you vulnerable. Collaboration means understanding the strengths and weaknesses of all involved in order to help each other.

Thus, organizations (and societies) which alienate and isolate their members, and instill a defensive attitude by using the belittlement of weaknesses as a means of control, sabotage themselves.

Power often prefers to be in control than to succeed.

What are good tips to get out of a “feeling no confidence” mood when it comes to making your art?
