my ascent into adulthood
I feel like this is actually really accurate for me.
Writing addict, real estate junkie, and a few other things.
i am tired of queer headcanons.
and maybe it’s because i’m self-hating or an assimilationist or i don’t understand the true queer struggle, but i am tired of queer headcanons.

personalcolor asked you:
(I don’t know if you answered this already or not, so I’ll ask again.) I’m writing a realistic story about the asylums of the last century (something like in American Horror Story). I’m Spanish, so I’m not very familiar with American/English…
The way that the Stand Your Ground statute is used in jury instructions boils down to this: ALL THAT ANY NON-BLACK SHOOTER NEEDS TO DO IS TO SAY THAT THEY WERE AFRAID FOR THEIR LIFE…because scary Black person. It matters very little if the so-called “reasonable fear” existed in reality, or only in someone’s mind, or not at all
Newsflash: ANY given reason =/= “reasonable fear”
I’ve sat on a jury as a foreman before, and please believe me when I say…during deliberations in the jury room, “reasonable” can easily become, “well, he did give a reason for his fear" if someone strong (or Black) isn’t there to immediately shoot that thought process down
Here is the complete text of the Florida #SYG statute (written by ALEC, btw) which ultimately finds it’s way into Florida’s self defense (aka #SYG) jury instructions
Make no mistake: Dunn didn’t use the words ‘gangster’ and ‘thug’ in his testimony by mistake. You don’t have to look any further than the glaring difference between how Richard Sherman was derided and pilloried as a “thug” vs. when White people like Mayor Rob Ford and Michael Grimm (R-NY) aren’t even arrested after being caught on film using drugs or making credible death threats, let alone not called a thug. Those two words—thug and gangster—and many more have become heavily weaponized and racialized, and they are ‘polite’ stand ins for the n-word. And that coded language didn’t just happen all on it’s own
And let’s be real here, for far too many armed White people, unfamiliar Black bodies are plenty of reason to be fearful…all the way to the point of immediately applying lethal force (please see also: implicit shooter bias, Renisha McBride, Jonathan Ferrell, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc)
someone accidentally dropped a camera out of a plane and it’s I think my favourite film now
how Gravity should have ended tbh
closer to the end the camera apparently turned around itself 30 times a second, which corresponds to the framerate 30fps, making the image appear like a stabilized flight
JUPITER. Holy fuck
What about if Earth had rings?
What would that look like
this is like porn i love space
WHERE THE FUCK IS PLUTO
They did say planets…..
FUCK YOU! VIVA LA PLUTO!
VIVA LA PLUTO!!
why does everything have to be solved by true love’s kiss like why can’t things be set right by true friendship’s high five, embrace, and session of several songs sang together loudly and off-key
I think a more important question is why does everyone think true love’s kiss has to be romantic
Soul mates can be platonic, true love can be platonic, and kisses can be platonic.
The fact that there is no romance doesn’t make it any less real~
They’ll usually state in their guidelines if they accept simultaneous submissions. I usually always submit to several publishing companies at the same time. You can wait up to a year to hear back from some people, so it always seemed ridiculous to me for publishing companies to request that you wait.
If more than one publishing company decides they want to work with you and you haven’t signed any contracts yet, it’s definitely up to you to decide. It is nice to let the one you didn’t decide to work with know that’ll you’ll be publishing with someone else. Also, if someone asks for a few chapters or your entire novel to read and you decide to go with someone else, let them know. That way you keep a good relationship with them in the future.
