Sometimes I honestly just feel a little lazy or start chatting it up ooc while going back and forth between working on a post and talking. And a lot of the times this means I get distracted so if its been too long without a post from me I apologize for taking too long and then I just scrounge up a post in about 5 minutes. Its pretty amazing how I’ve developed this useful ability really. And half the time the posts are better than my well thought out posts that I put all my effort in to. Whats up with that?
This used to happen to me at work. If I absolutely had to use my phone for any reason I usually had to step outside and call my mom or whomever was picking me up. Aside from that even when literally nothing was going on I got yelled at about even though the girl who told me not to was constantly on her phone. It was a family business, so double standard much? This led me to the “I need to use the restroom real quick excuse.” Usually my partners knew I was working so I’d churn out a quick reply on my phone if I had their number and approved of me texting the rp for a bit. I’d just let them know they could reply and I’d get back to them asap. Quite useful if you can’t come up with another excuse and feel the overwhelming urge to churn out a reply. Afterall, if you take a little more than five minutes you can get anybody to shut their mouth with a simple “My stomach was a bit upset because I ate some bad sushi.” or something along the lines of that.

It’s super frustrating. JUST COME PLAY.
I roleplay in deviantart rp groups. I always find myself a bit scared approaching people to rp because I’m afraid I’ll get misunderstood like I want to rp because they have good arts or I want to rp because they have less good arts. Confused?
For me, if I find their OC interesting, then I’d really want to rp regardless their drawing skill. But if they have better drawing skill than mine, I’d feel a bit scared if they’ll think I want to suck up like I want something from them (like arts and so on) and later they don’t rp with me anymore. If they have lower drawing skill than mine, I’d feel a bit scared if they’ll think I rp with them because I don’t want to feel bad of my own arts so I rp with those who draw less good than me (and they wonder too why I want to rp with them), and later they’re the one who will feel scared of me and avoid me.
How to really show that you’re really interested to rp with them regardless their drawing skill? How to erase all these worries??? *sighs* :(
"You’d be so good at playing this character while I play the character they’re commonly/canonically paired with. ;)"
Nowadays I just laugh at people who place spelling and grammar and word count over great character dynamics and amazing plot. How to have a fun roleplay? Write like no one’s watching.
I understand that life gets in the way, but…
Sudden character development and fun ensues.
Ugh, I don’t even care what his spelling and grammar are like. :( He’s one of my best friends in the whole world, and he has these ideas for characters that seem really cool/cute, and I’m even getting into this anime series that he likes, so maybe we could do a roleplay for that, and fdkaslfdkl
I just think roleplaying with him would be a total blast, but he’s like, “Nah, I’m a terrible writer,” and I’m like, “DUDE. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A GOOD WRITER TO HAVE FUN.”
Remember, guys: you shouldn’t be scared to RP because of your skill level. I’m sure there are tons of people who will still appreciate your ideas, characters, and storytelling, regardless of your spelling and grammar!
Half the time I write a reply, I think “yes this sounds great” and am done with it until my partner replies. Then when they do, I look back at my reply and am just like “why the fuck did I do that wait no let me take it back i’m so sorry you deserve better than that hunk of shit why did i even think that sounded acceptable”
