So during the wtnv livestream last night the-secret-police-of-night-vale said something really funny about Cecil having a weather button and I had an extreme need to draw it. :)
That will work, that’s actually how my last book was edited :)
More creatures looking left. I might have a problem or something.
50 Shades of Grain
People on tumblr are the most creative people I’ve ever met
All I got is Cheery Hoes.
So I got nothin’.
Ha! Sorry, I enjoy having a life
The best thing a bright young person can do after school is try to make your own way. If you find out you need those college classes for something, take ‘em later. Only get a degree if you need it. You’ll not find much of use in the school system unless you get lucky and have teachers that actually give a shit about their students.
"Why are artists fed up with people who don’t take them seriously" is strangely absent, I see.
I’ve given up trying to correct people.
Megan. It’s not hard to spell.
Thomas not Thompson
My name is Tristan. To most people this means spelling or hearing it as Tristian, Tristram, Christian, Trisham(????).
People could NOT get my legal name spelled correctly, and forget about my last name. I usually just quip “it’s Polish for ‘hey look, there’s a Jew’”
I have to spell my first and last name for people all the time.
No one in the U.S. can pronounce a norwegian last name as it’s proper norwegian pronunciation. So sort of.
It’s not that fuckin hard to say Demetria
I’ve shortened my name because apparently my full name is too hard
Ryo, don’t say Rye-O, it’s Ree-O.
-w-” Everytime, dangit.
Not often, but every once in a while I’ll get something in the mail for Mr. Clupp. Priceless.
Try not to think so much. I know it’s easier said than done, but here are some tips;
- Put on your favourite movie, one you’ve seen a million times.
- Or put on an old tv show; don’t pressure yourself with silence.
- Grap a notebook and pen.
- Put pen to paper and write a word, any word.
- You can even start out with a doodle if you like.
- Don’t think about writing a story, just write anything.
- Write about the weather, what you had for breakfast, a dream you had, anything at all. Write something that means nothing.
- Write for five minutes, then leave it.
- Tomorrow, write for ten minutes.
- Increase it each day.
- I promise you, that sooner or later, a character, a story idea, a scene, something, will come to you and ask to be written.
- But don’t pressure yourself.
- You don’t need to write an entire novel on day one.
- Write snippets, write sketches, write things you’ll never finish.
- Don’t pressure yourself.
- Allow yourself to write rubbish.
- And in between the writing, read, read, read, read, read.
- Be brave. I know you can do it.
