i accidentally made a shit ton

Space Australia: accidental murder

Ok, so team cuddles loves us and team space orc respects us - but what do they think about our accidental extinctions?

Like, sure, because we’re made of iron and madness the federation is glad we’re on their side, but wouldn’t the fact that we can/will/have accidentally murdered entire species make us that much scarier?

I mean, we’ve accidentally murdered shit-tons of other humans through any number of ways. Would there be a specific division in charge of gently steering us away from accidentally everything?

What of the fact that, as a whole, our first real questions for anything are “can we sex it”, “can we eat it”, and “how do we kill it”? I mean, if we run into something intelligent and friendly only the first question is likely (thank you Captain Kirk) but still, any research of living things we do are approached from at least the latter two.

Humans are crazy!

so, been playing dragon age: inquisition. a few notes:

- i may have inadvertently made the game ridiculously easy for myself because i finished a ton of shit in all the available cities before i closed the breach
- the game is very glitchy and makes me wory i imight accidentally fall through the world at any given moment
- i’ve had the game straight up crash TWICE now
- i’m level 13 and i have 75 power points

I'm currently revising my novel and I am wondering if it is normal, that it works so fast and well for me, because everyone says that the revision is the hardest part and that it takes so long. (I wrote the whole novel chronologically though and I had it all plotted out before I started writing and my first draft was 326 pages.) I don't know. I'm just a bit unsure about all that.

Dear matthew-parrish,

Revision is my favorite part of writing, but it is also the part that requires the most intellectual focus from me. For me, rough drafting is all gut and instinct; revision is calculated manipulation. 

It really depends on how close your draft is to what you intended for your finished novel to look like. Imagine a rough draft is a giant shapeless sheet cake. If you know you want a butterfly cake, it’s just a matter of cutting that square of baked sugary goodness into a butterfly. If you don’t know what you actually want, you might just sort of mangle the beleaguered pastry through four different shapes until eventually realizing that you wanted a butterfly all along and now must glue all those mangled cake bits into a butterfly shape using a shit-ton of frosting. 

You pretty much never accidentally end up with a butterfly. 

It sounds like you already knew what kind of cake you wanted.  

I’m sometimes slow even once I’ve cut out the butterfly: I always want each cake to be a little nicer than the previous one I’ve made. So I spend a lot of time in revision making certain every sentence is working intentionally. I also tend to write with an inward-looking recursiveness that requires me to be wide awake. For instance, the prologue of book one of the Raven Cycle: 

The prologue of book four:

I like this fussiness, but it’s not fast, and I can’t do it until I have the entire rough draft in place.

And there is no magical rule. Some people spend a lot of time on the draft and get that time back in revision. Other people fast-draft and wallow in revision. Some people — and those people are me — find that it varies from novel to novel.

Are you normal, you ask? Probably not. Who is?

Hiii :) can you do an imagine where you and Ash have a fight and it ends up with him saying how he doesn't even know why he's with you and all this mean stuff so you leave and he soon regrets it and oh my lawd the feels cannot be contained right now.

I know, hun, I know. Ashton needs to be stopped.

*A/N: I was going to put this into two parts, but then I thought, “Nah.” So, instead, I shortened it and made it somewhat  angsty/fluffy-ish? idk but hope yah like it~~ :D
