It's so hot. I hate this. I didn't mind all the rain at all, and now... Ugh. I'm melting. Anyway.

I have a big writing project in the works, specifically, my Treat Yo Self Descendants reboot... Thing. So that's exciting, and will probably double as my Camp NaNo project in July.

I want to warm up with some, like, shorter things, though. I haven't really written fic in a kind of a while - you know, by my standards - so I'd like to get un-rusty. Thing is... I can't decide what I want to write. I have a few ideas: A Steven Universe college AU is the big one that keeps coming up, but... It might be easier if I'd been in college a) longer and b) more recently. And... I know I have other ideas to write jotted down somewhere, but I can't remember what they are, or where I wrote them down.

I'm pretty focused on SU for the warm-up writing, since it won't be my Camp NaNo/Treat Yo Self project, and I've had 'all the feels' since Wanted. Um... But yeah! It's weird, I have motivation to write, and inspiration to write, but just... Not enough of either, I guess.

I think I can blame the heat for all the motivation I'm missing, honestly. This kind of weather always makes me feel so sluggish. (I love summer as a concept - the idea of freedom and creativity and all that during summer is still drilled in my brain from my school days, and Phineas and Ferb, but why can't we have that big break in spring? Which, yes, I suppose it's technically still spring for a few more days, but you know.)

If you're having trouble pulling from your own experience, it may be helpful to watch/read some other things set in college? Also, college websites can be somewhat helpful for more, I dunno, tangible? aspects (i.e. courses, plans of study, surrounding location, sports, etc.) If it helps, no two college experiences are the same, so it's kind of hard to go wrong if you understand the gist, especially if the college you're choosing to write about is made up.

Your icon reminds me of that girl who can shape shift into a guinea pig in the movie Sky High. [personal profile] stavekoff and I watched that last night. It was cute! I forgot how much I enjoyed live action Disney movies.

My brain is currently fried, but one book that comes to mind is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. As for shows, hrmm, maybe Gilmore Girls? (though that's more HS and college.) If anyone can weigh in, that'd be excellent, because I am also curious. I can't believe how long its been since I've been curious about high school/college settings and AU's.

I'm glad I could help. :)
