keep away those eyes from me, pitch dark
Dorothy Parker’s telegram to her editor.
This are my thoughts at almost every deadline, but especially with this novel. The story is finally where I want it, but there are still so many rough edges I want to cry. I want every syllable to be brilliant.
Never have done such hard night and day work never have so wanted anything to be good and all I have is a pile of paper covered with wrong words.
David gets turned in tomorrow, wrong words and all.
(PS: Thank God for copyedits.)
Dorothy forever. Who among us has not felt this?
Ugh, so true.
I can’t look you in the voice.
Lost in the land of fairy tales, we need a way to show the outside world all the beauty and magic we experience. Sending a postcard should do the trick!
Omg you need to WATCH THIS TED TALK RIGHT NOW
It’s (almost entierly non-problematic) feminist: yes
It talks about social ques given to children through kid’s movies and the whole Magical Quest trope: yes
It talks about raising boys to respect women in a way that’s not just chilvarly: yes
It’s written by a man: yes
Watch, listen and learn, because this guy knows what he’s talking about. It’s important to teach the right lessons to both girls and boys.
This is fantastic, funny, and extremely true. Both girls and boys need to learn together that they’re equal, not just “girls can be powerful” and “boys can be powerful”. take a sec to watch this, dashboard!
A great watch. Share with your friends.
I sat in silence and watched all of this without interruption. Around 7:43 is where I was floored.
Because that particular point brings to light something I had NEVER considered—which also umbrellas over the idea of this new “Nice Guy” fad going on—
there’s more to life than defeat evil; get a reward. And I am honestly shocked I, and many others, didn’t notice this pattern.
Please do watch.
