anonymous asked:

Any tips for writing a mute person? This is my first time writing one and I don't know if there are certain things I should avoid or not. Thanks!

Hello!

I’ve tried writing a mute person myself once, and sadly, I didn’t finish the book. But! I don’t know of any things you automatically need to avoid without doing some research. I’m glad that you want to do that character justice and avoid offending or misinterpreting a kind of person.

The only thing I can tell you for sure is to make sure that character doesn’t speak (which duh) also think of the different ways your character can communicate. Do they know sign language? Do they write stuff down? Etc..

But again, definitely research. That’s your best bet.

Happy writing!

gone with the wind has AWFUL racial and sexual politics but still manages to be kind of awesome if you can see through all of that. also has the Worst Man of all Time in it, Ashley Wilkes

Yes, I know that gone with the wind is super racist and sexist, but isn’t this just how things were back then in the states ? i mean, i wouldn’t read it if it was about now days, but back then it seems only reliable to me. painting history in the south back then as if there wasn’t racism and sexism will be just… a lie?
