Please get Mark to see this.

I’m well aware that you know it’s important to credit creators. This goes for photoshop and art alike (etc) . I really hope you saw that my thing with Tom Brady and Tyler was used and not credited (as far as I know, please correct me if it was). I just want to reiterate something.

In my book, it is never okay to use someone’s content without direct permission from them. It is okay, however, if this content includes the person using it and is credited properly. Example: Markiplier fanart being used by Mark and Mark only, so long as it’s credited.

I saw Tyler defend someone who stole my art, saying they only wanted to share it. This is wrong. You need direct permission from an artist to use it.

Please, advocate something like this in the community, and please please please, at least give me credit. I am mad by principle. You cannot excuse theft in anyway. 

Edit: I’m not mad per say. I’m dissapointed. I understand Mark has good intentions and I understand he likely forgot. Just principle here.

edit 2: For those who aren’t aware, mark has seen this! just leaving it up. :P

"you dont need tools for witchcraft"

i know tons witches, espcially on tumblr, always say this but a lot of times it dosnt seem true. those same blogs posting about “not needing tools” (myself included) reblog photos of sparkiling crystals and decorated altars. in comparison, our own practice can seem inadequate. but remeber that witchcraft is an old practice, and while over centuries this practice has grown and changed, the basis of the craft is old as fuck. the mothers of our practice most likely didn’t have access to a houndred different crystals, the entire whole foods spice rack, and dozens of specialized tools. the mothers of our craft were creative and worked with what was locally available, not $30 organic vanilla beans flown in from mesoamerica (unless that just so happened to be where they lived). the mothers of our craft were nifty and clever, and knew how to make everything out of anything. so, while beautiful, shimmering, lovely items are always nice -and can make us /feel/ witchy- our witch moms founded this practice without them.

The Tattoo Question

Hey folks! I’ve updated my FAQ page to address the tattoo question as it seems to come up quite a lot. I’ll post the answer here as well, but please remember to check out the the FAQ  before sending a question. Thank you!

What are your thoughts on someone wanting a tattoo of one of your drawings?

I have mixed feelings. The most common response I give people is I don’t usually have a problem but please exercise extreme caution. I am not a tattoo artist and what may look good on a screen may not translate on to skin. I cannot promise you’ll be happy with the result. With that said I only have two requests concerning tattoos:

1.) Please ask permission for the use of an EXISTING drawing. Then feel free to take it to a professional tattoo artist and let them work with you on how to best get it done. 

2.) Please do not ask for original commissioned tattoos. The prospect scares me too much and I’d rather not. Sorry :C

**Followup edit: If you follow these steps and go through with a tattoo, I’d actually love to see it. It might open me up a bit more to the idea of my work being tattooed. Thank you!

I walk through the valley of the shadow of death And I fear no evil because Iḿ blind to it all And my mind, my gun they comfort me Because I know I’ll kill my enemies when they come Surely goodness and mercy will follow me All the days of my life And I will dwell on this earth forevermore Said I walk beside the still waters and they restore my soul But I can’t walk on the path of the right because I’m wrong No I can’t walk  On the path of the right ‘Cause I’m wrong [COLOUR VERSION]

How to Write a Resume LIKE A BOSS

So you’re ready to assume some responsibility and apply for your first job (or your fifth job or your fiftieth job) and you want some tips on writing a good resume, huh? Well, are you are in luck because 1) I’ve edited and proofed so many resumes I could probably write one for each of my friends without their input and 2) I’ve actually taken some classes on this shit. So, basing this primarily on comments I’ve made while correcting someone else’s resume (and while looking at my own for reference), here are my tips on writing a resume.

~Guys, guuuys...

I’ve just learnt that Ben Affleck:

- has taught himself Arabic

- speaks Spanish and French too

- is so good at doing impressions that when he did one to Morgan Freeman, it was so accurate Freeman told him, “You ever do that again, I’ll kill you”

- won $356,000 by winning the California State Poker Championships in June 2004 - defeating some of the best poker players in the world in the process

- filmed four movies simultaneously in 2001: Pearl Harbor, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Changing Lanes, and The Sum of All Fears 

- began an intense two-hour a day workout regime the day after he was cast as Batman

- received a lifetime ban from playing blackjack at the Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Casino due to his ‘counting cards’ skills

Which tells me:

1. He’s fucking smart. I mean, he can pick up/learn languages pretty well (one of which is Arabic, Damian are you listening and he majored in Middle Eastern Affairs in college) and he is a boss at poker/blackjack.

2. He’s a workaholic. Look, I’ve never made a film (or even a short video) in my entire life, but he did 4 in one year at the same time and I bet he’s done similar workloads throughout his career. Also, see: two-hour a day workout regime for more evidence.

3. He can do good enough impressions to freak the fuck out of God™.


= Ben Affleck is well on his way to being Ultimate Batman

All Hail the mighty Bat!

anonymous asked:

I am sorry you had thst experience. It's a hard situation. For my part, me and my abuser ended up throwing accusations at each other like cowboys in a quick draw. I haven't forgiven people who didnt believe me, but I can't blame them either. It's an impossible situation which feeds off our desire to do good; and uses our own strongest ideals as a weapon against us. So ugly. I hope you are doing ok x

(2)(cowboy abuse accusations anon) edited to add, that person was not only big on consent, but was a consent educator and activist in town and rather prominent in local campaigns. So it goes. I’m having some trust problems, and a lot of feminist or social justice buzzwords still read as red flags to me - including ones about abuse and survival. Oh blimey, it’s tough. I hope you are doing ok.

Thanks, and I hope you’re doing okay too.  It’s a really impossible situation when abuse accusations are the abuse, and not at all a rare one.  But then you get into “saying my abuse accusations are abuse is just reinforcing abuse” and oh my God it’s turtles all the way down.

In the end, all we’re left with is that it’s really hard to know from the outside what a situation is.  "Believe everyone” ties you in knots, “believe no one” is heartless, “believe the more respectable party” is very dangerous, “believe the less privileged party” is hopelessly naive, even “trust your gut” is just a gateway to the inner prejudices of your gut.  It’s really hard.

I’m not going to claim I know what to do now, but at least I know a little bit more about how tough the problem is.  Hopefully.

FS Jumps!

anon asked me how I personally identify jumps (probably to try whatever works). disclaimer though: this is the easiest and fastest way for me. ok to reblog but please do not repost any part bc this is just my take on it. kinda long post, so under a read more.

So you’re fairly new to writing and you think your fic is shit…

The way I see it, you have three options:

#1 the good ol’ “fake it till you make it”

Accept the fact that there’s room for improvement and you can only get better by writing more. I know the temptation is great to make self-deprecating comments about yourself or your writing, but if you say your fic is shit, it won’t make people want to read it. For the love of god stop doing that.

#2 work harder

Seriously, if you think it’s bad, than edit your chapter or start over until you’re satisfied with what you wrote. Research, fill character sheets, use online editing tools, read writing advice blogs…

#3 find a beta

I don’t think anyone is ever entirely satisfied with what they write. It helps to have someone who can be more objective about your writing. A beta can tell you what you did well and point out what needs to be fixed. 

little-magicpuff  asked:

Out of curiosity, since you're not just an editor but also a writer, how do you manage to split your time between them and not get utterly sick of looking at words? How much editing do you can do on your own work versus needing someone else with fresh eyes to look at it and edit?

I split my day up into allotted time periods for work, or I did when I was still attempting to edit full time. At the moment I only have one or two days a week which I allow for editing work because my energy is so limited. This also better enables me to separate the mindset I am in for writing my own work vs the sniper mode I go into when hunting for the elusive mistakes others might miss. I also have to switch writing styles in my head when I am editing, as a good editor should be able to adapt to the tone of their author, not just hack through it. One of my biggest pet peeves when I am working with another editor (usually because the author has hired two people) is when they clearly miss that something is a stylistic or tonal choice and mark it as “incorrect” or “use of slang sounds informal” like really Editor Number 2, really, you’re going to insist everyone speaks like they swallowed the Oxford English Dictionary and were stunned over the head with a thesaurus. Really? 

I also try to make sure I take regular breaks, whether it’s to watch something, read some old fave fanfic, play video games, or just even chat with people so that my brain has time to unwind and stop being “on”. At least in the professional sense. Which is why it’s a dick move when people are like “lol Joy your spelling and grammar is awful rn I thought you were an editor” and I’m just here on the internet wanting to unwind and not be in work mode using up spoons to try and have conversations with people. There is a difference between Me and Work Me, and one is happy and can’t type for shit and the other is one more overused em dash away from setting fire to things.

As for how much of my own work I edit, if it’s fanfic or tumblr posts I try to catch as many things as possible, but there will still be times where I come back to something a minute later or two weeks later and still find mistakes which I can then rectify and roll my eyes at myself for misspelling “excerpt” as “exert”. 

Which is why when it comes to any work I plan to sell, I will definitely be throwing my work at the heads of some editor friends because there is just no way I will ever catch 100% of my own errors. This is why books also go through multiple rounds of edits and usually get worked on by at least 3 people in publishing houses, because no one human is 100% infallible. Whenever I take on an editing project which I know hasn’t been beta’d be some people I know (the first time I read anything professionally written by @deadcatwithaflamethrower and it had been beta’d by @norcumi it was to the sound of blessed angels singing, because it’s rare to get such a clean copy of anything), I will usually insist on a timeline that allows for me to do three rounds of edits.

I do have a habit of pre-formatting my work though. I know some people don’t like writing with things double spaced, but I just can’t even read a file anymore without “fixing” the spacing. It gives me a headache otherwise.
