ID #42861

Name: Nadja
Age: 18
Country: Serbia

Well this is my second submission because the first one was long and awkward. I am a girl from Serbia, a tiny country in Europe (Not Syria and not Sibiria). I will be 19 in September and I am starting college in October studying veterinary medicine. I love animals (obviously haha), indie bands, tv shows and netflix, nature, cycling, crafts and diy stuff, reading classic novels, cooking and baking, photography and everything creative. I really love collecting postcards and stamps and I would love to talk via letters-snail mail, so please contact me if you are interested in that kind of communication. I am also interested in exchanging stuff from my country, learning about your culture and hearing about your day/week/life. I hope to meet a lot of people from around the world and be long term friends with them :)

Preferences: Anyone in my age range so maybe 17-22, any gender, anywhere in the world and prefer snail mail

It's 3.30 am here and I am ready to talk about my precious girl. 1. She loves stargazing. The Ordon skies are her fave to do it. 2. She sucks at crafts such as embroidery, knitting, etc.; excels at fencing ,and of course, archery. 3. People think she likes philosophy, anthropology, or sociology books. Wrong. She lives for super romantic, chivalrous love novels. Only one person knows about it, because he is a sucker for them too. 4. She rarely wears fancy shoes (boots ftw), because big feet.

(sorry it took me so long to answer this I was away from my laptop all yesterday and tumblr mobile never tells me when I’ve got asks) 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE ALL OF THESE! especially Zelda having a secret stack of romance novels in her room (is it Link who’s a sucker for them too?)

Don’t forget the boot swapping HC haha :P

Would you upload your apush notes or give tips about how to study for the class ? [love everything you do btw]

i don’t give out my notes but generally, for history, i like to consider studying for history like reading a novel / story? because in novels, there’s like a plot + i find it easier to follow along if i look at history like that. idk if that makes a lot of sense haha but yeah! i use quizlet for memorizing dates + making timelines are very helpful. crash course offers some videos that are good + brief reviews (don’t rely on them alone tho. they’re too brief for that). also, make sure that you know causes and effects in history.

sheerpoetry7  heldinhishands  why is it that…

WHAT ABOUT BOTH??

if u mean both as in both books then since i accidentally just wrote the first paragraph of “How Science Ruined Madison Knight’s Life *and other tales” and im also going back through the 30k of what i already had of my other, as yet unnamed, novel to edit and then continue it then ur in luck.

if, on the other hand, you meant take mermaids and lesbians and add dinosaurs and lesbians, well, its an interesting concept, never before done i would imagine (possibly for a good reason lmao)

anonymous asked:

what are some books/writers you like?? i always like your thoughts on storytelling related things so i was wondering what prose you'd recommend...

Oh man I’m glad you asked me that!

One of my favorite writers is Michael Chabon. My favorite of his is Yiddish Policeman’s Union. It’s about an alternate history where, instead of being given land in Israel after the Holocaust, Jewish refugees were given land in Sitka, Alaska. They have clashed a lot with the native Tlingit people there, but also their cultures have fused and evolved together in interesting ways. The book has great worldbuilding and a really engaging, lived-in setting. But more than that it has great characters. Bina, my main character in Monster Pulse, was named after Bina Gelbfish, a character from the book. Highly recommended. In fact I want to read it again… right now.

 His books Kavalier & Clay (about comic book writers in the 20′s) and Telegraph Avenue (about record store owners trying to hold on to their lives in a neighborhood that’s about to become very gentrified) are also very good, and I also like Wonder Boys although its a bit older and slightly less polished than his later work. He had a YA novel called Summerland that I also recall enjoying a lot, though I haven’t revisited it in a while. It was very much about Americana and American mythology, which is a subject I’m very interested in, personally.

My big kick lately has been Ursula Le Guin- I spent a year just straight-up devouring her work. I’ve talked a lot about what I like about her and what’s special about her work, and I think it’s safe to say she’s my favorite author of all time. Her work is very honest and level and human and earthy, all in ways that really get me. The gateway book for her is Left Hand of Darkness, a sci-fi novel about a planet on which its people have no gender. My personal favorite of hers is The Dispossessed, a novel about a society of anarchists who broke away from their planet a hundred years ago to start again on their moon. You also can’t go too wrong with the Earthsea series, especially if you prefer fantasy to scifi. I like all the Earthsea books but the fourth book is the one that sort of changed my life, haha. You’ve got to read them all, though. I also love her short stories.. There’s too many for me to list! Read Le Guin, you won’t go far wrong.

The last of my Big Three is Philip Pullman and his His Dark Materials series, which is a YA series about alternate universes and spirit animal companions and magical devices and armored bears and witches. These books mean a lot to me and, although Le Guin is my favorite author, I think HDM is still my favorite fantasy series overall, and maybe my favorite books ever. I’m a sucker for the idea that humanity and simple, day-to-day human experience is the source of true power and magic in the universe… Plus it had a rich and exciting setting and cast of characters. Lyra and Will are some of my favorite protagonists, they bounce off each other and help each other grow so well, and the tension between them is really well-built. I love these books!!!

As for others… I read a lot of Edith Wharton last year. Most of her books are about the trappings and invisible limits of upperclass society in late-1800′s new york, and most have some element of tragic romance. Age of Innocence was my favorite, it really stirred the ol’ feelings in me haha. If I had to, I would use those as example of really strong romance writing, where the tension and urgency of their union is really well built up, so you as the reader see why its so damn important and tantalizing.

I was on a big Raymond Chandler kick in college and I read all of the Philip Marlowe books in a row. When it comes to gorgeous, tight, intelligent writing, you can’t do much better than Raymond Chandler. The Long Goodbye is my favorite, but frankly they’re all good in their own ways. Raymond Chandler was also very picky on how a mystery novel should be written, and his essays on writing are definitely worth looking into. They helped me think about plotting stories and manipulating the reader in ways I’d never considered before.

I read Wuthering Heights last year too and that book is fucking nuts lol. I thought it was going to be like Pride & Prejudice… IT IS NOT LIKE PRIDE & PREJUDICE. Read it, that shit’s wild and rough and completely bonkers. It’s great.

I loved Jane Eyre when I was younger… I still do. I love Mr. Rochester, I love Jane, I love how severe and dramatic it all is.

I was really in to Toni Morrison in high school but I haven’t revisited her work since. Maybe its time to do so?? I loved Song of Solomon and I remember reading about how when she wrote it, she was trying to think about men, and her father, and write about men like that… I’m very interested in the idea of women writing men, and trying to get in a male headspace (whatever that means or doesn’t mean) so that’s part of the reason that book was very compelling to me.

There’s probably a lot more, because I do tend to read a lot. That’s what comes up off the top of my head though!!!
