i begin typing on an old typewriter, "a werewolf is
steering a submarine" but then stop. i crunch up the
paper and throw it in the fire. the world isn't ready yet
for Captain Harry McHowls, the submarine pilot who is
secretly a werewolf hiding from the moon

    • Writing stupid bullshit that just comes to mind is just a good way to practice writing, as well as a fun way to come up with an actual story. Don't go thinking you're wasting paper or something. Write everything.

    • I’m writing a story called Desert Eagle, it’s not meant to be serious outside of the message I want to relay at the end. It takes place in an alternate version of our universe where magic is real but no human knows about it and every 1000 years 4 super humans are born, goes to space with aliens too
