just don't.

Random Favourites

It's almost time to bore to death all of the people around you by refusing to discuss anything else.

It's almost time to bring your snuggie everywhere you go.

It's almost time to fling your laptop at the wall in frustration because you have writer's block.

It's almost time to freak out because dear god, that laptop was really expensive and hey, all of my writing is on there.

In two weeks, it will be time to attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in just thirty days.

Are you writing, too?

when i was little i thought that looking at video clips and pictures of the sun could blind you. to this day i still have trouble looking directly at the sun captured on film out of habit.

also i write.

Random: I bought your book awhile back. One of the poems in that book has inspired a painting I will hopefully be completing this summer. I'll happily share a link with you when it's complete. Thank you for writing such beautiful things.

Sometimes I feel a desperate need for something beautiful and a little bit sad, but most of all real. And I visit you, and listen to your stories. And I feel things. And I am satisfied. Because even though I hide a smiley face in my passwords, it isn't always true.
