the urge to fix my life starting today but its a saturday. i’ll start on monday
i kinda just want to be home alone for about a month and see what happens. no human interaction. just me.
i think my villain origin story just happened when i showed up at a copy place and they told me they don’t print copies today and i should come back on monday even though they’re literally working. this was my final straw
All my teenage years, I had bottled up anger and grief and promised myself I’d never cry but when I sat down with her hands in my hand and looked her in the eye, all the anger turned into tears. I sobbed for hours and she sat there, rubbing my back. That’s when I saw. Growing up is also tearing down walls, it’s also letting go of the anger.
-Ritika Jyala, excerpt from The Flesh I Burned
“WRITE IT BADLY. Write it badly, write it badly, write it badly, write it badly. Stop what you’re doing, open a Word document, put a pencil on some paper, just get the idea out of your head. Let it be good later. Write it down now. Otherwise it will die in there.”
— Brandon Sanderson on overcoming writer’s block to create a first draft as a professional author (via almost-always-eventually-right )
