ten unappreciated scenes

If I have learned anything about grief it is that it is unpredictable. You will never know when it’s coming or how long it will last. It overwhelms and exhausts you. It takes you to the farthest reaches of your sanity and then throws you directly back into the thick of things. It does not care who you are or what you have accomplished. It will linger in the deepest recesses of your mind.. waiting. A song or a smell or a laugh will bring it to the forefront, ready to consume you - and consume you it will. It is a constant struggle to keep my head above water and not let grief have its way with me. My heart physically aches and there doesn’t appear to be any relief in sight.

anonymous asked:

Hey there! I was wondering how you got where you are, as a writer. Did you start to enjoy reading at a young age? Did you pick up writing fiction early? How much have you written, in your life? Anything relevant is interesting :) Also, any advice for new writers?

There’s no real rhyme or reason to it, I guess, it was kind of just always the way my brain worked. I happen to be really smart, and you don’t need to be really smart to come up with something brilliant, but it definitely doesn’t hurt. I was reading adult-sized books by the time I was three. When I got older, I would force my parents to buy me 7-8 books a week, finish them by the next week, then buy more books. I was really spoiled and reading books that were way above my age level, which has its pros and cons. When I wasn’t reading, I was playing video games.

When I was young, I’m not sure I would call what I did “fiction,” it was more like “plagiarism” because I had read so many books that I just made up slightly different versions of the stories. Now that I think about it, that was probably the origins of fanfiction writing. I have begun and completed several original stories, though. they just never get prioritized. 

My current ao3 word count is 333,047, though I’m sure I’ve written quadruple that.

Advice 1: Don’t plagiarize, no matter how tempting it may seem. Don’t copy a plot, don’t copy a joke, don’t copy anything, because that is such a slippery slope.

Advice 2: There’s nothing wrong with you if you feel unmotivated to write, but at the same time, motivation won’t magically appear. Sometimes you have to force yourself to get it done. It’s better to do that than to do nothing.

Advice 3: Read everything and learn everything. In my opinion, there is nothing you can learn that will make you a worse writer (Except, maybe, some poorly thought out advice from your English teacher).

Advice 4: Take some psychology classes.

Advice 5: Listen to the way that real people talk.

That’s all I got right now. Let me know if you want something specific.

“At twenty-one, a girl begins 
to grasp the world and how it spins. 
She grabs a box of safety pins 
and builds herself a home.”

10 different ways to destroy the object that you are conserving

I’m sorry in advance.  Maybe I shouldn’t post this here, but…

1. The scalpel is your friend. Imagine you’re a serial killer and go for it.

2. One word. Dremel. Find the hardest cleaning wire brush and start the attack.

3. Simply immerse a lovely dry object in water.

4. There must be a f***ing hammer somewhere in the laboratory. Find it.

5. Adhesives. Just pour and spread over the object.

6. Dance on it. (This might need your colleague’s assistance) 

7.  Have you watched the movie ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’? If so, then you know what you have to do.

8. Let one of the first year students to conserve it without supervision. They don’t even know how to change a scalpel blade. They are bound to do something wrong. (I didn’t know how to change a scalpel blade. I imagine it was the same for others too.)

9. Put whatever chemical solutions you might find on it. Who knows, you might create a supermegafoxyawesomehot explosion.

10. If none of the above does the trick, you can always throw the damn thing out the window.
