I've loved the opportunity to learn about the fashion world and appreciate it as an art form, and I look forward to my continued education, but I never want it to take over my acting. - Lupita Nyong’o
I am tired, I am so fucking tired, my body is sore and my stomach hates me, my head is reeling, my sinuses are draining into my stomach and I still have to go to my meeting, shower, laundry and pack
arathergrimreaper is actually chronologically watching my dumb rec list and liveblogging it and that just fuckin makes me smile
Don’t get too excited, I am taking forever on this one because I keep getting distracted.
As long as I see periodic liveblogs it will still make my day/night
Fair enough, but this one will have to wait for tomorrow some time. I am exhausted and still haven’t read the next story so I can critique and peer review it. Did completely flip my shit and leave a message on the class wall on fb like, “please please don’t read my p.o.s., it is garbage and we should all focus on more important endeavors.” Needless to say, it did not fucking work.
everyone making succubus/incubus ocs an well

The hut, which can accommodate about 10 people, is not a recent construction. It was actually built way back in 1915 and took only five days to complete. All the building materials were brought up to Hornli Hut, just 2,500 foot below, with the help of animals.
It’s called The Solvay Hut.
"a female protagonist in assassin’s creed is historically inaccurate!"
haha yeah because ancient aliens, conspiracies, and a war that has been going on for thousands of years yet still somehow remains secret to the outside world is totally accurate i mean we can have glowing magical objects which kill people and all kinds of stuff but a female with a knife is TOO far buddy TOO INACCURATE and TOOO UNSCIENTIFIC!!!!!!

Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
is there someone who could transcribe these.
My icon is also the expression that I permanently have on my face.

There aren’t many authors (who actually sell books) who can get away without plotting. Best-selling authors, like Stephen King, who say they don’t plot, don’t realise that they actually do it without realising it. They have an innate plotting talent. They just need less help than the rest of us.
I have noticed that even talented literary authors, who obviously don’t plot, have a shorter shelf life, and fewer readers, than writers who do plot. My greatest wish as a reader is that more literary writers would learn to plot. Can you imagine the incredible books we would have to read? There are some literary authors who do this. Kate Atkinson writes beautifully, and her books have plots.
Is there a difference between a commercial and a literary plot?
What is a literary plot?
Generally, literary plots are full of isolated characters without a clear goal. They are slow and full of ambiguities. The author concentrates on the inner journeys of the characters and their psychological setbacks. The endings are often inconclusive and they mostly don’t end happily.
The bottom line
There are fewer book sales and the author makes less money, unless he or she wins a literary prize.
What is a commercial plot?
Generally, commercial plots are driven by characters with a well-defined story goal. There is lots of action and the author deals with the interior and exterior worlds of the characters. There are physical and emotional setbacks. The endings generally suit the genre of the story.
The bottom line
More of these books are sold and the author makes more money. There is no chance of winning a literary prize.
I think the way forward for modern writers is to marry the two.
- If you write literary fiction, spend some time on plotting and add some pace.
- If you write commercial fiction, make your characters more complex and add small twists to the endings of your stories.
