Writing – As Explained by Firefly Part 2


So recently I shared my first Firefly inspired post again and it got a good bit of buzz! It also got me thinking and partially due to all the other Firefly giffery that was shared in comments and replies, I was reminded of many other awesome quotes. And a large part of it was procrastination for real life things.Β But seriously, there’s nothing for inspiration like lying in bed trying to delay going to a staff meeting.

So partially as a thank you, and also because Firefly is awesome and 100% applicable to everything, here’s part 2! πŸ™‚

All gifs are from giphy.com

Trying to decide your villain’s final fate after he almost destroys your heroes…

When your character is trying to convince you NOT to injure them for the 5th time that chapter…

Where your readers are convinced you’re going after that cliffhanger…

When your characters are tired of the 5000th rabbit trail you’ve tried to send them on…


When your characters really aren’t talking to you after that last plot twist…

How dark and scary the research can go…

We all have that one character…

Also, since these are super fun to do, but take up a bit more time than a regular post, how often would you like to see these? I’m down to try and do these more frequently, so let me know in the comments!

What movie/tv show would you like to see me do next?

  1. SO GOOD. XD Also, the “what’d y’all order a dead guy for” is the best. XDDD Now you’re making me want to go rewatch Firefly or write and I don’t have time for either. πŸ˜› Success? Thanks for sharing! And I’d love more of these someday! πŸ˜€ It could be a monthly feature or something. ^_^ You haven’t done a LOTR one yet have you…?

    • Nope. No LOTR one. I’ll put it on the list. πŸ™‚
      I’ve thought about monthly, but knowing me, it should be more like a bi-monthly thing, so it gets done. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the suggestions!
      I knoow what you mean about time. I haven’t really working on any writing project in weeks. 😦

  2. Well, I’ll tell you honestly that I’ll seek these out and share them because they’re awesome. So I guess the question is how much time you’d like to spend on it? Looking back at the others you’ve done and their frequency, may I suggest one a month? Or if that’s not possible, one every couple of months? I would recommend one a week but I certainly could not keep up with that (with all the time to find the gifs and everything) so I would not presume to suggest that to anyone. Thanks, these are great!
