150 followers: free reviews, a challenge for you, gratitude | #childofyournation

June 30, 2020

FREE WRITING

39

i’d like to make my thank you as annoyingly and in character-ly sappy as possible, so it’ll be at the end of this post! for now: let’s get down to business :).

1) a challenge for you! 
i genuinely had no clue that people would have so much interest in elegant daughter of asia. it was born out of me thinking: “asian aesthetics/beauty are super bomb. i’ll write about them.” and to my surprise, some friends asked if they could make sequels with their own spins on it writing about their own heritage! 

chrysanthemums&ink’s dirty daughter of the middle kingdom and Vinter Vejen’s striking daughter of eurasia were wonderful spins that utilized some of my lines to show a whole ‘nother world. upon seeing more notions of interest in making their own versions to talk about their heritage: here’s this!

a community challenge (prompt?) that i’m naming #childofyournation. it’s pretty free-will on how to do this (just see the examples linked above!) and i’m excited (and very hopeful) that i’ll get to see others’ take on my piece and learn about their culture and heritage! should i be honored that you’d take the challenge, i’d request that you tag #childofyournation in the title and link me to your piece. agh, it’s really all of your support that helped my piece get this far. <3

***i’d like to compile and shoutout all of these spin off/sequel pieces in a near future post, so the “”deadline”” to be featured in this is July 4th! please comment on this post with a link to your spinoff/sequel piece ^-^!

2 ) free reviews!
this is a “thank you” after all, isn’t it? if you’re a follower: comment below a piece you’d like reviewed, and i’ll get to it! no guarantee on when it’ll come: i try to be as thorough as possible, though, so i hope it makes up for the wait time.

3 ) gratitude!
it’s been exactly 2 months since i joined wtw. when i first joined, i was always ecstatic at getting even one person’s attention, much less a chunk of their time in the form of a peer review. since then, i’ve been shown nothing but endless support, kindness, and comments that have made me tear up (go ahead and laugh :’] i’m a libra).

the idea that someone could come across my writing and go “hey, this is alright. here’s a follow!” is just insane. the fact that you’d give some girl that screams nonsense in her footnotes to overly mouthy pieces—wow. you’ve given me your time, however much that is, and i could never thank you enough for it. i’ve smiled, i promise you, at every single follow notification i’ve received. dear follower: thank you for making my day that day. <3 mwah, dearest. mwah. i hope our paths remain intertwined in the future!
-tldr: community challenge/prompt + peer reviews + ily all
-to my mutuals i interact with and adore and i give my absolute gratitude to: i’m like a barnacle, baby. you’re never going to get rid of me >:)). i’m relatively harmless and sometimes a bit uncomfortable and a tad questionable to scientists but i’m here to stay :]]

    I really hope #childofyournation continues to thrive, even with the ban on contest posts. I mean, how can they take away a challenge like this that is literally designed to bring the community together? Isn't that what WtW is all about? Bringing young writers from all different places and cultures together?

    Hey! I’m hoping to maybe do a piece for #childofyournation - do we need to adhere to the “adjective child of place” format for the title, or can we choose our own title?

    I cannot wait to participate in your challenge! It looks super fun! I am honestly a bit nervous to participate because I know that I could never write something as good as your original piece (I find myself pretty boring) and it was so good! I'm excited to try, though ;) <3<3 *throws LOTS of confetti and pulls you around to dance with me in it*
