Tips: 0.25 INK Postby aLoverofBooks on Sun Aug 16, 2020 5:36 pm

My name is aLoverofBooks, or Bookworm to my friends. My roleplay experience has been going onto 5 years now. I write in paragraphs, and will not post unless I manage a five paragraphs limit - being that I usually write with six to seven. My flaw is that I tend to be a perfectionist, so I pay close attention to detail if possible.

Let me see... My favored genres are mostly historical, high to low fantasy, grimdark, and modern fantasy. I love D&D, this site led me to the game. I prefer one on one stories, being that any groups I join seem to fall apart. I posses a sort of dark humor and outlook on life. It reflects in my writing, for I love to be realistic.

As you can tell by my username - I LOVE reading. A professed bibliophilia. There is not a moment in my day where I have a book close to me. My goal in life is to become a Librarian. Other than literature, I adore history. My mind is focused more on the past rather than the future really. What I would give to have the ability to time travel! What a fantasy I constantly live in it seems.

The reason why I joined this site is a bit complicated to explain. I first started on this site to find an escape from my own mind. Yes. My own head. Maladaptive daydreaming, also known as excessive daydreaming - a disordered form of dissociative absorption associated with vivid and excessive fantasy activity that often involves elaborate and fanciful scenarios. It was enough to bring anxiety whenever I had to interact with the real world. My own escape, my own sanctuary with a price. It is a fear of mine that I may lose that barrier between reality and fantasy one day. I may be reading in the morning at one point, only to find the day is nearly over all because I 'zoned out'.

A friend of mine suggested I go into roleplaying to help. Hard to do that when you are an extreme introvert with trust issues. It was slow at first, but gradually I found myself getting into a pattern of writing with others. And now, my excessive daydreaming is helping me write.

The reason why I bring up my little 'addiction', is because it has gotten me into trouble a few times in my life. When a sudden boost of inspiration hits or if a partner gives me a wonderful post, I tend to retreat into my head. Because of this... I have a habit to disappear briefly.

I digress. For the longest time I have only written with one person but now that he has moved closer to me so I may be on less than I usually did. I am grateful to have joined this community, for it has brought me an alternative way of dealing with my anxiety and a new escape that is outside of my daydreaming. But most of all - RPR has given me someone who I never thought existed and brought color to my once grey world.

If you wish to join me in writing, do send me a PM. I must admit firstly, I am a bit shy and a little picky in my writing choices. But once you crack my shell, I am a warm and loyal writer.

Hi, welcome on in!

I also love DnD! Have you been playing long? I'm a player and a (subpar) dm. It's a lot of fun.

There's a lot of folks who do 1x1's here, and plenty who are patient enough to wait a while (even, in some cases, a month or so... sorry to my personal 1x1 partners) between posts. I'm sure you'll find a partner or two who would love to write with you!
Things are only impossible until they're not.
