why do the ones u like always gotta turn out bad smh
"both sides can be right" oh PLEASE
i knew it was too good to be true
I agree with omocat though.
We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.
This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it."
The whole article sadly hits very close to home.(via rosalarian)
Anonymous said: Is killing characters really necessary though...? I mean, I understand that sometimes it's inevitable but I don't know if I want to kill off my characters 'just because' like so many writers out there do. I don't know but It's like they have to have a quota or something...
It depends on what story you’re writing and what age group you’re writing it for. In a Middle Grade or YA novel, you can get away with putting your main characters in constant danger and having them somehow survive every time (though you can also take the route of killing them normally. YA has a lot of leeway). Likewise, in a story without any deadly danger, such as a romance or a contemporary or a book in any genre focusing mainly on business, there’s no real need to kill off any characters. In an adult book where your characters are frequently in danger, however, it looks kind of weird to have your main characters survive every time, though some authors still do it successfully because the other elements of their story are good enough to make up for it.
Some authors like to kill off their characters for no reason to show that death can happen at any time. I don’t, which is why I provided those three reasons earlier.
SEES SELF: as a researcher, a seeker after truth who is always learning.
OVERRIDING NEED: to have continuous access to high quality ideas.
IRRITATED BY: rules, structure, pomposity, long windedness, people who seem less than truthful with themselves, emotional…
if you want a nice body, go get it. if you want to become a lawyer, study your ass off. if you want nice hair, pick a style and get it done. stop being afraid and motivate yourself. find yourself. find your happiness, because it’s out there waiting for you.
thanks for this, I really needed the motivation! Now I have a huge selection of nice bodies to choose from in my basement, once you go out and get the first two or three the rest just seem to fall into your lap! :)
