go jesus go jesus

space salmonella stans really out there pretending that he’s “changing” when he spent an entire last episode being violent, treating kara like property, admitting to not respecting her when he said “he will /now/ if she gives him a 476437647th chance”, saying he misses his planet bc things were easier there when he was a slave owner who could objectify women,,,,, do yall hear yourselves? ?? like when you’re talking??

Casually adding this to the list of things that I wish had happened

Honestly, I think the whole “don’t pay the writers” thing boils down to the notion that everybody thinks they can write. It’s the old saw about the novelist at a cocktail party having to hear someone say, for the millionth time, “I’d love to write a book someday.”

Someone–Stephen King? Pretty sure I saw this in a Stephen King foreword–once said they’d like to say to a brain surgeon, “Boy, I’d love to do brain surgery someday.”

We treat “the ability to put words into a sentence” like it’s just the same as “the ability to form a coherent narrative that engenders a variety of emotions within the reader and puts them in a scene and shows them what they didn’t see before”.

And that’s like me drawing a stick figure and saying I’m an artist.

Writers are constantly devalued because everyone thinks they have a book in them and don’t realize the level of skill and commitment it takes to finish even a short story, much less a whole book. 

This goes well beyond fandom, but man, I would’ve hoped fandom would know better.

And the call isn’t out there at all
It’s inside me

I didn’t know that it was possible to grieve someone who’s still alive.

“I don’t know the plans you have for me,” I tell the Lord. “All I see is pain and difficult times and inconveniences and hard choices and thorns and cliffs. It doesn’t make sense.” 

God says, “You don’t need to know the plans.” 

“What?” 

“You need to know me.”
