A news article about him:

y'all hurricane irma IS the most powerful storm scientists have seen in over a decade and it’s already tearing through the carribean islands. they don’t have as much money and government help as the U.S does so Americans have to donate like hell to these islands. the islands that are currently being hit haven’t even responded to media outlets/ radios because that’s how fucking powerful it is. we already know the government is gonna do more to help the U.S but not so much with these islands. Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas and other carribeans islands are going to get hit the worse. we need to stand by them, pray for them, and donate as soon as we get information about donation organizations that will help the carribean islands. they need this.

after 12 hours of no response, the Prime Minister of Barbuda has announced almost 100% of the island is destroyed. A lot of the other islands have yet to make a statement but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the same way for them too. 3 people are already dead and the death toll is expected to rise. don’t just care about these Caribbean islands when they’re good vacation spots and travel aesthetics. people LIVE on these islands, people go to school on these islands, people had futures on these islands and we should care about the destruction that is going on there like we would if it happened in the U.S

Charles Perrault  (12 January 1628 – 16 May 1703)

A French author, poet and secretary, Perrault impacted on the fairy tale genre in a profound way. Writing Histoires ou Contes du Temps passé (with the subtitle ‘Mother Goose’ -  Les Contes de ma Mère l’Oye). In this collection, stories such as ‘Cinderella’ ‘Puss In Boots’ ‘Bluebeard’ ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Beauty And The Beast’. Scholars themselves are mixed about the originality of the tales- whether they are entirely his own or he received inspiration from other sources. He is remembered as a strong figure in the fairy tale genre, as well as the epic poetry.

I swear to this floating Vampire Jesus over there, Trevor Belmont is the most relatable Character in a series. EVER.

One of the strongest bonds that link us to our favorite stories is the emotional tie, or books that sink a fist right into our guts. When you finished a book where you couldn’t let go of after the last page, chances are, the author successfully punched you in the spleen. If you’ve ever wondered how to do just that, here are some of my favorite methods:

Make your reader root for your main character(s). Make your character stretch out their arm toward their goal, as far as they can to reach, until their fingertips barely brush it. Make your character want something so much that your reader wants it, too.

When your character trips and stumbles and stops to question themselves, the readers will hold their breath.

Push your character to their very limit, and then a little further.

When your character hits the bottom, they should scrape themselves back together and get back up. Give readers a reason to believe in your character.

If your character is challenging your plot, your plot should challenge your character.

Leave a trail of intrigue, of questions, of “what if?” and “what next?”

If a character loses something (a battle, an important memento, part of themselves), they must eventually gain something in equal exchange, whether for good or bad.

Raise the stakes. Then raise them higher.

Don’t feel pressured to kill a character (especially simply to generate emotional appeal). A character death should serve the plot, not the shock factor. Like anything else in your story, only do it if it must be done and there’s no other way around it.

What’s the worst that can happen? Make it happen. Just make sure that the reader never loses hope.

At 17, I was a depressed teenager who self harmed and wondered about just how painful it could possibly be to end my life.

Right now, I’m laying on the couch, and I can hear my husband reading our four year old a bedtime story using silly voices.

Life gets better. Make sure you’re there to see it.

I just started crying.

this is very important

Read this, over and over again. It really does get better.

Yes, if I don’t like a ship, that’s fine, I won’t be malicious about it! I respect everyone’s opinions

I’m too goddamn old for ship wars.
