    Tfw you're knitting in the round and an entire needle just... falls out! And now you've got this row of stitches you need to carefully get back on the needle, but then some of them drop, so you need to dig around for a crochet hook for twenty minutes!

    Why is this darn hat taking so long. I know it's double knitting and it's not my favorite thing but I've had it on the needles for close to a year now. Plus I really want my size 2 circular needles back but I can't until I finish the hat and just argh!

    Also why are sweater patterns only in size small and medium? There are bigger people out there that would like a homemade sweater thank you very much

    And last thing why are double pointed needles so hard to keep track of. One of my size 1 set is missing and I need them for house socks. Hopefully I can manage with 4 until I can find it.

    I really miss workshopping my writing. I also miss being able to write more than three sentences at a time without feeling like I'm pulling teeth

    ...I really really wish ppl would tell me if they liked my writing or not. Like. Is there something about me that doesn't prompt comments? Is it the lack of porn?? Like kudos are very nice, but... I'd like to hear a "hey I really liked this!" or "oh my god you ripped my heart out you fiend"

    and people wonder why i stop updating things. like. writing's fun but one of my major joys is people reacting to my writing. Because that at least gives me an idea if I've done what i wanted to do.

    Anyway also. RP replies are amazing and fun but I THINK we have bitten off more then we can chew with four consecutive threads at the same time in messenger. My brain gets tired lmao

    I swear to god, 3d topology makes me want to start screaming and never stop. It always feel like I'm making progress, but whenever I try to do something, I'm just behind where I need to be.

    Writer who has read almost every Discworld novel >5 times and has a stellar memory for random turns of phrase problems: when I try to write something and my brain, instead of producing original content, wants me to quote Pterry.

    Yes, brain, "said slowly, unpeeling each word like a sullen grape of wrath" is exactly what is going on, and yes, it is an exponentially better description than anything I could have come up with on my own. No, brain, I can't use it.
