:( I hope you feel better soon.
Thank you. Hopefully tea and a nap will kickstart something.
It’s that special time of whenever the fuck it wants to show itself time again. I’m burnt out. I can’t find my paladin. I really can’t find anybody right now.
I feel isolated on server, though it’s not really true. I just…can’t.
OOC Post: Character “Critique”
First things first. You should know I have been RPing for several years, but I am new to the concept of using Tumblr to RP. I have been using it as a character blog with occasional prompts or OOC posts mixed in.
Secondly, you should know I am a writer. I know I don’t take my character blog very seriously or even write the greatest stories with it, but WoW roleplay is my fun time and my excuse to not write. (Every writer has so many excuses to not write!)
I justify RPing rather than writing in that it is still a practice of character-building, of understanding a character’s intentions and the justifications for their actions. It is a character study, and it exercises your mind and your creativity in a place where, hopefully, other players/participants can give you an element of the unexpected that you have to adapt to and they keep you on your toes. Good RP is like a wonderful mixture of acting a pre-written character (fulfilling your character’s storyline), improv (adapting to the storyline you didn’t expect), and writing.
Finally, this post is not against constructive character critiquing. I am not against players helping each other out. If you want to do a little bit of critiquing of another person’s RP or character, in all friendliness, for the sake of helping them out, or pointing out some flaw that maybe they didn’t realize, or to help them become a better RPer, go for it!
A big amen to this, all of this.
