Patchwork Heart and Silver Soul

This is my slightly more artsy/intellectual blog: photography, quotes, cool vocabulary words, poetry, plants, some sj stuff, art, etc. I run a fandom blog called The Lamb is Caught in the Blackberry Patch, and I also run a happiness/recovery blog found at hopefulstarling.tumblr.com. Finally, I'm a mod for the Buffy blog Imagine BtVS.

attuition:

It’s a very serious process. First, you have to clear the area of all things religious. If there is a cross anywhere within a 100 foot radius, Jesus will know what you’re doing and you’ll go to hell immediately. Once that’s done, you must play Tegan and Sara on repeat. Before you begin the sex, you both must pray the goddess Ellen and receive her blessing. Then comes the main event. Start with the pussy. You each must find a cat to pet in unison. After awhile of that comes the scissoring. You’ll take turns cutting each other’s hair until you both have achieved Justin Bieber’s 2009 ‘do. To finish, watch an episode of The L Word together.

Writing Advice: Watch TV

ashesinyourhair:

There’s one bit of writing advice that irritates me every time I hear it. It’s often given with such assurance and authority that it comes across as a rule, despite how ridiculous it is. It’s this:

“If you want to be a writer, stop watching TV.”

There are a lot of reasons I think that’s bullshit. The most personal one is, I happen to really like TV. It’s the medium I’m most interested in writing. I think the serialized hour drama is one of the most rewarding formats that fiction comes in, for both the writer and the audience. I have far more favorite TV shows than favorite books. If you asked me to name the fictional characters dearest to my heart, a lot of them would come from TV.

It’s also that I think that rule smacks of snobbery. Often, if not always, it seems to come from people who are particularly proud of how little TV they watch and how much they read instead. That attitude bewilders me, because there’s nothing inherent in the print medium that makes it superior (intellectually or otherwise) to TV. There are bad books and brilliant TV shows. And if it’s about discouraging time-wasting, it’s disingenuous. You probably spend more time on Facebook or your phone than watching TV, but I’ve heard “watch less TV” from writers way more than I’ve heard “stay off of Twitter.”

But there’s one reason I’m pro-TV that’s less personal, and more practical and relevant to writers, and it’s this: Television (like film and theatre) is writing that has to be performed.

Why does that matter? Because, as you know if you’ve ever had your writing performed or even recited your own dialogue aloud, a lot of stuff that looks just fine in print is actually ridiculous or impossible in practice.

i will never understand the phrase

"she looks amazing for 40"

40 isn’t old

and old isn’t ugly.

the lack of respect we show for women who are past a certain age

how we discard them and label them useless,

and see them as past their prime,

has always confused and frustrated me.

Help me prove a point

I have never reblogged anything faster.

Daily. There is a great deal of fanfiction that surpasses what is published out there.

I’m breaking my “Never reblog something that starts with ‘Reblog if…’” rule for this one
