Steve Bannon’s obsession with this racist novel is just the tip of the iceberg

  • Yes, Steve Bannon has repeatedly compared refugees from war-torn nations to the demonized depiction of immigrants in an obscure novel who eat their own poop and try to murder all white people.
  • Bannon has repeatedly cited a racist French novel in defense of Trump’s ban on entry from certain Muslim majority countries, the Huffington Post reported.
  • On at least four occasions, Bannon referenced Jean Raspail’s 1973 novel The Camp of the Saints to defend Trump’s immigration policies.
  • In interviews and speeches, Bannon referred to “Camp of the Saints-type invasion into Central and then Western and Northern Europe” as well as a broader “global Camp of the Saints” scenario.
  • When it comes to Bannon’s reading list, The Camp of the Saints is only the tip of the iceberg. Read more (3/6/17 8:18 PM)

So, someone wanted some tips on planning/outlining their novel and instead I made this. It kind of happened.

If you’re new to my silliness let me introduce myself.

My name is M. Kirin and I write books. If you’re interested in writer resources, inspiration, and the adventures of a dork, you could do a lot worse than me :3

it smells like summer nights outside. you know like when you’re out camping and the sun goes down and all of you are soon attacked by mosquitoes…that’s what it smells like - good times with friends and easier days…

Ahah!  @Sarahlinden is a genius and figured out a way so no one gets left out again.  Starting now, the rad Typewriter Series #300 Tin Camping Mugs are on Pre-Order, and the quantity available is unlimited, so you can order when you wish.  Now, in order to make this possible, what I’ll have to do is wait until enough orders come in to place my manufacturing order (they require these to be made in bulk, not print on demand) and then when they arrive, you who have paid, will get your mugs shipped immediately.  Essentially, you’ll be waiting the same amount of time, except for now, you’ll officially have one (or more) reserved for you so you don’t miss out again.  So, head to bit.ly/tkgmugs and place your pre-orders, the more the merrier, as the more of you that order, the quicker your orders will find their way to your loving hands and sipping lips!  I love ya.

camp half-blood

“looking at the elementary schoolers in their colourful t-shirts from various day camps, percy felt a twinge of sadness. he should be at camp half-blood right now, settling into his cabin for the summer, teaching sword-fighting lessons in the arena, playing pranks on the other counsellors. these kids had no idea just how crazy a summer camp could be.” (from percy jackson and heroes of olympus by rick riordan)

Not going to lie, my latest video is the most revision-heavy subject I’ve done quite a LONG time. Watch at your own peril, peeps working on your first drafts! 📚💦

ok im late to the party but this last episode of Camp Camp was lit just. a GOLD MINE for “max has the tragic backstory” theory fuel

Like this is not a “wait what’s going on, oh this is sad” face. this is an “i know. EXACTLY what you’re talking about” face

This is a fuckin. “THIS IS WAY TOO CLOSE TO ACTUAL INTROSPECTION AND I CAN’T DO THAT BECAUSE IT WOULD FORCE ME TO CONFRONT MY ISSUES” face

this is probably the closest to crying we’ve ever seen max??? like as a person who has panic attacks max looks like he’s on the edge of a panic attack. he’s not paying attention to whats happening in the scene anymore, because his eyes aren’t following david’s voice or movement. He’s 100% in his head right now

when max said “wow, Nurf is way more fucked up than I thought,” hes saying “I didn’t expect for Nurf to have similar issues to me”

WHY DO YOU MAKE ME WAIT LUNA DROP THE BOMB ALREADY
