I was an adult once. It was terrible, so I quit.
Currently watching a reality TV show, and the dad said something like, “She’s 21 years old and she still doesn’t have her direction.” With a heavy implication that she should also find a husband. And he was dead serious—and dead disappointed. I am here to tell you: eff that noise. You’re 21? GREAT. GO DO EXCITING SHIT. There’s time for everything else...

ambassador-of-anguish: shouldertappingghosts: If I was a famous author I would publish a book with ten different endings which all went to print with varying degrees of rarity, but not tell the fans about it so that I could watch their confusion as they disagree over how the story ended. Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate...

17teenvoguechallenge: I used to hang out with people at school who didn’t make me feel good. After we hung out I had a pit in my stomach and doubted myself.

THE GIRLY GATSBY
The next time someone asks me why @MaureenJohnson did the #coverflip thing, I’m going to cram a copy of THE GREAT GATSBY down their nose and remind them that if Gatsby and Daisy had been gender-flipped and Gatsby had been a girl doing anything it took to get such a shallow guy, she would have been called both desperate and a slut, and then the book would have been mocked and probably never...
ohmistermagazine asked: Thank you for sharing those writing links yesterday! That brainstorming method you describe is pretty much what I have needed lately to help figure out what I want to include in something I want to work on. And, I like knowing I'm not the only person who writes without an outline!

Anonymous asked: Hey, I just wanted to drop you an anime recommendation. I saw a post saying that you enjoy killing off characters which is great (that sounds odd...), because that keeps me anticipating what will happen next so I enjoy it. "Attack on Titan" is the sort of show where you really don't know what will happen next and which characters will die. Have a good day! I can't wait for your...
