My best friend and I we’re talking about 50 Shades of Grey and about how it’s also setting a terrible exmaple for writing because see like here?
"His lips part, like he’s taking a sharp intake of breath, and he blinks. For a fraction of a second, he looks lost somehow, and the Earth shifts slightly on its axis, the tectonic plates sliding into a new
position."/ " I feel the color in my cheeks rising again. I must be the
color of The Communist Manifesto."
TECTONIC PLATES? COMMUNISM MANIFESTO? OF ALL THE EUPHEMISMS FOR THE COLOR RED? WHAT THE FUCK EVEN????
And she was making fun of the book and made up this quote as a kind of example:
"He twisted me around and around my finger so much that I began to resemble a swastika"
And I died. I swore it was from the book because I can see shit like that actually being IN that goddamn book.
