I think that’s what her problem was, she gave her heart away to people too quickly and generously, she gave it to people who either didn’t intend to keep it or were scared, and when they ran away after breaking it, she would weep till she could weep no more, and repeat the entire cycle again.

The sky is the sky,
no matter what color
it shows you,
purple, red, orange or blue,
pink, white, black or gray,
it will always be that infinite space
that mesmerized us.
And you,
will always be you
no matter
how many times
you wished you were
someone else.

Some Oddly Specific Character Quirks (taken from my real-life friends)

Giving a character strange, highly specific quirks is one of the best ways to humanize them and make them feel more real. So I figured I’d share some real, actual Character Quirks™ from real life people that could serve as inspiration or as writing prompts for people’s characters. Let me know if you use one!

  • Always has a kazoo on them, and if ever a situation calls for it, will simply produce a kazoo. Often unclear where they were keeping it.
  • Can mimic any accent perfectly after hearing a small sample of it once. The one exception? The accent of the region they’re from.
  • Has strange and very long chunks of text memorized perfectly, from 40 digits of pi to several Shakespeare monologues to poems to favorite passages from books. Often forgets their own name or the words for everyday objects.
  • Has never once lost a game of Jenga, ever.
  • When stressed, participates in conversations largely through strange and loud vocalizations instead of words. Somehow, everyone still knows what they mean.
  • Their idea of treating themselves is buying lapel flowers, silk pocket squares, and ties.
  • Once biked 30 miles to the Mississippi River just so they could sit on the bank and play the harmonica. Could only play for about 3 minutes before having to immediately turn around and bike the 30 mile return trip to get home before dark.
  • When they get nervous they just drop and start doing push ups. Doesn’t matter where they are.
  • Ordered 13 boxes of garlic triscuits off of Amazon.
  • Whenever they hear the song “Dancing Queen” they start stripping. It started as a joke but it has become involuntary and has lead to some uncomfortable situations.
  • Every time they tell a bad joke, they stand up and take a lap around the room yelling “AND THE CROWD GOES WILD”
  • Primary mode of transportation is a razor scooter that is much, much too small for them.
  • Has an “off button” on their back. A spot where, if pressed, all of their muscles give out and they collapse to the ground. Their identical twin has it, too.
  • If no emoji exists to capture their feelings about something, they will draw a new emoji on the nearest scrap of paper and text a picture of that.
  • Has developed an intricate burp rating scale with specific and standardized rules and uses it to rate every burp they hear on a scale of 1-10.

it was rlly hard to pick a winner but..

i talked to @overdrivecow who figured out that theres more to arm wrestling than just pure strength; a lot of it is in the technique, which mccree certainly learned somewhere at some point!!
