to the kohai who recently got microns: beware!!

microns are expensive and they die and the felt tip might even wear down before you run out of ink especially if you like to do any amount of hatching.

I switched to ballpoint because theyre stronger and cheaper. You got two trustworthy recommendations here from me and mynkothra:

uniball signo
uniball jetstream

I HAVE tried pilot hi tec c and they’re not waterproof like uni.

archival safe is not the same as waterproof. Pilot G2 are good and cheap but they’re water resistant, not waterproof, so always check before you do anything mix media okay!!??

Ganesha - remover of obstacles

These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don’t cry baby, don’t cry, don’t cry

Medicine is magical and magical is art
And I believe
These are the days of lasers in the jungle
Lasers in the jungle somewhere

Staccato signals of constant information
A loose affiliation of millionaires…

reminder that it’s okay for writers to have chapters that are ten pages long

reminder that it’s okay if your chapter is only one page long

reminder that it’s okay if your chapter is only one sentence long

as long as you can get across the point of your chapter, be it with ten thousand words, or just ten, then you do it. 

your book is yours to write. there is no set formula.

I got kind of bored and arranged (some of) my inhumanely large collection of pens..
