21 Recommended Books for Writers

As I’ve talked about on my blog several times, an important part of growing as a writer is learning about writing. For years I’ve wanted to compile a list of writing books I’ve read, liked, and recommend. Today I’m happy to say I now have that list to add to my blog (perfect timing for anyone who likes summer reading). I’m sure over time, this list will be added to.

Many writers I’ve talked to have read quite a few of these books. How many have you read? And is there one I need to look into? (You can comment at the bottom).

If you haven’t read any of them, cool. Now you have a list to chose from should you ever want to.

Hundreds of books have been written on the art of writing. Here at last is a book by two professional editors to teach writers the techniques of the editing trade that turn promising manuscripts into published novels and short stories.

In this completely revised and updated second edition, Renni Browne and Dave King teach you, the writer, how to apply the editing techniques they have developed to your own work. Chapters on dialogue, exposition, point of view, interior monologue, and other techniques take you through the same processes an expert editor would go through to perfect your manuscript. Each point is illustrated with examples, many drawn from the hundreds of books Browne and King have edited.


What makes a good story or a screenplay great?

The vast majority of writers begin the storytelling process with only a partial understanding where to begin. Some labor their entire lives without ever learning that successful stories are as dependent upon good engineering as they are artistry. But the truth is, unless you are master of the form, function and criteria of successful storytelling, sitting down and pounding out a first draft without planning is an ineffective way to begin.

Story Engineering starts with the criteria and the architecture of storytelling, the engineering and design of a story–and uses it as the basis for narrative. The greatest potential of any story is found in the way six specific aspects of storytelling combine and empower each other on the page. When rendered artfully, they become a sum in excess of their parts.


Bestselling author David Farland has taught dozens of writers who have gone on to staggering literary success, including such #1 New York Times Bestsellers as Brandon Mull (Fablehaven), Brandon Sanderson (Wheel of Time), James Dashner (The Maze Runner) and Stephenie Meyer (Twilight).

In this book, Dave teaches how to analyze an audience and outline a novel so that it can appeal to a wide readership, giving it the potential to become a bestseller. The secrets found in his unconventional approach will help you understand why so many of his authors go on to prominence.


How do you create a main character readers won’t forget? How do you write a book in multiple-third-person point of view without confusing your readers (or yourself)? How do you plant essential information about a character’s past into a story?

Write Great Fiction: Characters, Emotion & Viewpoint by award-winning author Nancy Kress answers all of these questions and more! This accessible book is filled with interactive exercises and valuable advice that teaches you how to:

   Choose and execute the best point of view for your story
   Create three-dimensional and believable characters
   Develop your characters’ emotions
   Create realistic love, fight, and death scenes
   Use frustration to motivate your characters and drive your story.


The road to rejection is paved with bad beginnings. Agents and editors agree: Improper story beginnings are the single biggest barrier to publication. Why? If a novel or short story has a bad beginning, then no one will keep reading. It’s just that simple.

In Hooked, author Les Edgerton draws on his experience as a successful fiction writer and teacher to help you overcome the weak openings that lead to instant rejection by showing you how to successfully use the ten core components inherent to any great beginning.

Plus, you’ll discover exclusive insider advice from agents and acquiring editors on what they look for in a strong opening. With Hooked, you’ll have all the information you need to craft a compelling beginning that lays the foundation for an irresistible story!

dating yoon jisung and park woojin

yoon jisung: 

  • you already know he’s a meme
  • he knows exactly how and when to make you laugh
  • probably sends you old memes he finds funny, like the ones with the big text in white with the black outline
  • you’d probably criticize his memes
  • “,,,,hey i’m old i don’t know all this internet stuff”
  • also imitates you for fun sometimes and it can get annoying but it’s okay because you love him
  • he’s so random with it like you two would be cuddling on the couch and he’d just out of the blue
  • “you know the other day my trainer was making me learn this dance combo and i swear i looked like a chicken doing the hands”
  • continues to imitate himself
  • but all the memeing aside 
  • he’s also really surprisingly deep into the relationship
  • it’s nice that he’s not afraid to be emotional and genuine and he’s the same around you
  • because he’s so sensitive he’s always in tune with how you’re feeling
  • “just tell me what’s going on, don’t lie to me and say it’s nothing”
  • and although he tries to hide some struggles from you not to worry you he ends up always telling you everything (after you find out of course)
  • just very honest and open it’s nice
  • he’s soooooooooooo clingy and loves skinship
  • “jagiyaaaaaaaaaa” “honeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyy” all day every day don’t expect it to stop
  • will aegyo you to death don’t try and avoid it
  • clings on to you
  • if necessary will let you drag him to wherever you’re going as long as he’s still touching you in some way
  • sometimes the excessive sweetness is for memes but like it’s cute so you play along
  • wow just realized the amount of times i have said “memes” in this headcanon
  • oh well it’s for jisung how can you not
  • would definitely adopt a million animals (only if you were willing to)
  • always wants to take you out on fun dates (arcades, fairs, bowling, etc etc) and will probably whine when neither of you have the time
  • but tbh,,,,,,,, he’d be kinda frugal like he would beg to split the check from time to time
  • doesn’t mean he doesn’t get you gifts, he just really likes free stuff
  • “jisung this teddy bear has the logo of some sort of medical company on it”
  • “hey they were giving them out for free and it’s still cute”
  • fights would be super rare and only if something was super serious
  • and at the point where the two of you are yelling you’re both also crying so like,,,,, what’s the point
  • they end really quickly you two will probably hug it out then talk it out
  • jisung’s a huge fan of talking it out

park woojin:

  • if he’s not already completely comfortable around you before you guys date he would be kinda shy
  • if he’s uncomfortable at first he would try so so so hard to be the model gentleman but ur just like
  • “,,,,,, woojin i got into the car you can close the door now”
  • a cute lil blush on his face that makes it all okay
  • it’d probably take some gentle nudging from you to get him to open up more
  • on the first date looking down and constantly licking his lips
  • nonstop blushing
  • honestly though i think woojin opens up to people from sharing experiences, so as you spend more time with him he will slowly become the lil silly woojin we know and love
  • once the shy phase is out of the way whew you better prepare for the skinship
  • honey this boy is bouta cuddle you to death and you can’t do a n y t h i n g about it
  • just accept that he really likes keeping you in bed and giving back hugs even while you’re doing important things
  • he’s going to be like a puppy that follows you around it’s cute
  • but ofc he’s also that good balance of having his own social life and knowing when you two don’t need to be together
  • let’s be honest though at this point he’s introduced you to all the bnm boys and his friends back in busan and you’re part of each other’s social life
  • mutters “why are you so pretty/cute” all the time under his breath
  • on random nights probably stays awake with some trivial question
  • at 3 am: “y/n do you think fish exist on other planets”
  • “woojin you have practice tomorrow go to sleep”
  • will pick you up, throw u over his shoulder, then go on his merry way
  • or he’ll just pick you up and flip you like a fuckin
  • i don’t even know anymore have you all watched episode 10 because then you know what i’m talking about
  • “woojin please don’t pick-”
  • grabs you from behind “i want food we’re going to the kitchen” keeps walking while you’re just propped up on his shoulder like a flour sack
  • jam sessions all over the place
  • microphone hairbrush, hair whipping, loudspeakers and all
  • for dates he likes really chill ones
  • would occasionally go on busier/wilder dates farther from home but like
  • on a daily basis the most “interesting” it gets is like,,, together in the dance studio or something
  • but it’s okay stay-home/domestic dates are always cute and relaxed there’s never pressure
  • veeerryyyy good listener, he processes everything you’re telling him but sometimes doesn’t know what to say in return
  • he’s not the best with words when it comes to serious or emotional conversations 
  • sometimes that gets you frustrated but it does take a bit to get used to
  • not the most emotionally sensitive (won’t really be able to feel your emotions) but always always always wants you to tell him what’s up
  • “hey, just tell me what’s going on, even if i can’t do much to help it’s better than just letting everything build up”
  • may seem mellow but oh god don’t let him get mad nope nope nope
  • not afraid to ignore you and probably too stubborn to give in
  • but eventually he does because he loves u and it would take a couple days for things to get to normal but that’s because things are getting worked out and compromises are being made
Human Hearts

Human hearts were never meant to tread
upon the tired dust of old familiar streets
they were made to fearlessly sail instead
upon rolling waves of turquoise sheets 

Not designed or created to be tied down
following their herd forever afraid to try 
instinctively yearning for something more
on wings human hearts were born to fly 

Oft disdainful of this world’s tried and true 
human hearts desire the great unknown 
could they be expected to settle for less
each having been conceived in love alone

The Contest-Part 21

To celebrate Supernatural’s 15th season, the producers have decided to hold a contest to cast an unknown in a recurring role as Sam’s rumored love interest.  They are doing open casting calls all over the country.  Your best friend Nikki wants to go and she drags you along.

A/N: My inspiration for Nikki is the one and only Red, AKA@oriona75.  So I am actually telling two stories here, Jared and Readers, and Sam and Gemini’s.  It flips back and forth, so try and keep up! :)

Characters: Jared Padalecki, Reader, Best friend Nikki(OC) Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino, Rory Montgomery (OC), PA Emily (OC) Cliff, Other Supernatural cast and crew

A/N: The song the reader sings during karaoke is A Thousand Years by Christina Perri.  It’s one of my Favorites.

Master List

Part 1 (all parts are linked)

“Great, there goes my chance to break it to Nikki gently that Mindy’s here!” I said to Jared.  

“This can’t be good,”  Jensen said quietly.  “I’m gonna go get Misha.”

Jared and I found Nikki standing by the bar, her hands on her hips, glaring at her sister.  “I asked you what you’re doing here, Mindy.  I know there is NO way Y/N invited you!”

“Would you lower your voice, please?” Mindy demanded.  “I’m representing the family.  And I’ve told you before, I go by Melinda now.”

Nikki snorted derisively.  “Whatever, MINDY.  Why are you REALLY here? You’ve never given a shit about me my entire life!  You couldn’t be bothered to come meet Misha when he visited Philly, and you expect me to believe you flew to Vancouver out of the kindness of your heart? Bullshit!”

Mindy rolled her eyes at her younger sister.  “Still holding on to that crap from when we were younger, huh Nik?  Are you ever gonna let that stuff go?  We were dumb kids.  It’s ancient history.  Let it go…. Move on already.”  She tossed back the rest of her drink and signaled the bartender for another.

Nikki got right in Mindy’s face.  “You’re not fooling me for a second with this “the past is the past” crap.  Your just looking to meet someone famous.  Your still as mean and as petty and as shallow as you were in high school.”

“You’d better grab Nikki before she loses it and decks Mindy! Where the hell is Jensen with Misha?” Jared said worriedly.

I patted his arm.  “Don’t worry Babe, I’m on it!  Mindy doesn’t scare me anymore.  Can you go find Emily and bring her here, please?”

My Time Away From Me

My head hurts
My heart aches
My eyes burn
My mind turns
My feet can’t walk no more
On this road alone.

Time is needed to focus and think
Time to myself
Time away
Time off
Time to figure out
How to go on.

Away I need to get and be alone
Away from doubtful matter
Away from trouble
Away from clutter
Away from what drives me mad
And makes me feel dead inside;

From what I think about each night
From my insecurities
From my fears
From myself
From the way I can’t seem
To please me;

Me is all that’s troubling
Me is all that’s haunting
Me is all that’s left
Me is all I need
Me is in need of quality time
With myself and I.

College!AU Hakyeon

find leo (here) & ravi (here)

  • major: fashion 
  • minor: psychology 
  • sports: swim team captain 
  • clubs: school newspaper fashion columnist, wellness center/student counselor 
  • the entire campus is absolutely in awe of him because he can somehow juggle a fashion major, a psychology minor, the captain of a sports team that got to nationals???, a weekly column in the newspaper?? plus be an available counselor on campus for other students dealing with problems like???? is he an angel from heaven with superhuman powers or-
  • and tbh hakyeon is literally just a sweet glowing sunbeam of positivity like he makes everyone feel welcomed and loved and he goes out of his way to be friends with everyone just so they know they can count on him
  • and his outfits are always on point like damn hakyeon where did you buy that
  • and he’s like ‘i made it’ and smiles and you’re just like ??? an angel ?? but also talented ?? some people just really do get it all
  • and he’s so proud of his major tbh like he doesn’t care if some asshole is like ‘a dude majoring in fashion?? like wtf bro’ hakyeon is just like ‘excuse yourself scum, some of the top designers in the world are men so you can step off or ill end your life with a single snap of my fingers.’ (and tbh he could do it. he could literally do it do not mess with him)
  • hakyeon sitting around during lunch sketching outfit ideas and listening to music he looks like a goddamn picture he’s so handsome and pictersque the whole campus is just s w oo n i ng 
  • and the reason he’s minor in psychology isn’t even because it’s a back up plan to if fashion doesn’t work out it’s because he genuinely is interested in the way peoples feelings work and he wants to know more in order to be a better counslor and to better understand others like how is someone so pure
  • does the cute thing where he holds pins in his mouth while sewing and the entire class is like,,,,,,he’s the only who makes working hard look so effortless,,,,,
  • leo says he’s happy hakyeon isn’t on the soccer team but tbh hakyeon dominates at the swimming competitions and leo regrets not asking him to do soccer because ok,,,,hakyeon is secretly strong 
  • hakyeon singing to himself whenever he’s doing stretches at the campus pool and an entire bleacher full of girls is just losing it because he’s so adorable
  • and tbh you meet hakyeon on a whim like completely on accident because you’re not even in the same department as him but for some reason you two are the only ones left late at night on campus and he barges into one of the private study rooms where you’re like crying over a midterm and he’s like yOU
  • and you’re like ????me????
  • and he’s like i nEED your HELP plEASE
  • and you’re kind of panicked because you’ve never spoken to hakyeon really like you know him who doesn’t but you’re like is something wrong??? is there a fire??? are you hurt???
  • and hakyeon is just shaking his head and he’s like no no no i need you to be my model please i can’t find anyone else on campus and this outfit has to be done by tomorrow
  • and you’re like oh i should hel- model? outfit?????? 
  • and hakyeon’s eyes are wide with panic and hope and you’re like me/??? model???? an outfit??? i??? um????
  • and hakyeon takes your hand in his and wow wtf his hand is so soft it probably smells like peaches because hakyeon is always glowing but that’s not the point he’s like i know it’s an odd request but it’s like 11pm the person who promised to help me got sick so i need you please help me this one time
  • and you’re like i,,,,,,would love to but my midterm is this week,,,,, and hakyeon is like it’s ok you can study while i take some measurments - please it won’t take long???
  • and you look into his eyes (big miss steak) and they’re sparkling with genuine worry and they’re so beautiful you can’t resist finally you’re like alright,,,ill try my best to help and hakyeon looks so delighted like you just told him you found the answer to world peace and he’s like ok!! get your things and come with me
  • so somehow you end up being measured by hakyeon and it’s a weird feeling to have him moving your body left and right and lifting your hands up and you feel a bit embarrassed under his gaze and he notices because he asks why you keep looking down and you admit you’re nervous and he smiles and it’s so warm and he just apologizes for making you do this but he’s also like
  • you’re a very charming up close and you’re like ???charming what does that mean and hakyeon holds your wrist in his hand a bit longer and he kind of looks to the side like it means that you’re very good at keeping me attracted and your brain kind of stops working because??? keeping hakyeon attracted……attracted how???
  • but before you even get to ask he’s back to measuring and murmuring to himself about the cloth and things like that and he’s like ok i think i have what i need and he’s like im just going to have to work through the night to get this to happen and you’re like through the night?? and he shrugs like it’s not big deal and thanks you again for being a huge help to him
  • but even as you get ready to leave you feel horrible leaving him there so you step out and it’s past midnight now but you know there are cafes near campus that are open so you buy some bottles of water and packaged snacks and return to the room where hakyeon is working and he’s like oh, did you leave something? and you’re like n-no but here you go, since you’re going to be here till morning take these and you give him the snacks and drinks and he just stares but then suddenly his arms are around your waist and he pulls you into this hug that’s so light it makes you feel like you’re walking on air and he whispers thank you against your hair
  • and you wish that that moment could last forever
  • but of course it doesn’t and you expect that after this hakyeon won’t really have a reason to approach you anymore but as you’re leaving the room after your midterms you see him leaning up against the wall and he gives you a small wave and everyone around you starts whispering like???? what?? and you’re confused up until he walks up to you and is like 
  • “hope you did well on your midterm, but now that it’s over let me take you out as a thank for all your help”
  • and you kind of freeze in shock because ok what did he just ask you on a date all you did was let him use you for some measurements you didn’t think that was any means to be taken out so you kind of mumble that it’s fine, he doesn’t need to thank you but hakyeon just shakes his head and goes
  • “you helped me with more than just the outfit, you did a lot more for me that day. let me pay you back, i don’t like owing someone a debt.”
  • and honestly again you find yourself falling victim to his eyes and aura and so you agree and hakyeon takes you to this little, cute place covered in plants and good smelling candles and for some reason you can see why hakyeon would choose a place like this and as you’re waiting for the food hakyeon clears his throat and tells you what exactly the reason is for him treating you like this
  • and he confesses that it’s been a long time since someone has showed genuine concern for him, he’s always shouldering the problems of others and trying to do his best to help them, but that day you were like a superhero to him. saving his outfit project and then even being kind enough to make sure he made it through the rough night.
  • you kind of don’t know what to say because you always assumed his life was perfect, that he would have someone always there for him, but the more you two talk the more you come to understand that hakyeon is not the happy always positive person he looks like. there are weakness even he has and what you thought was a simple gesture of consideration meant so much to him
  • and somehow over the course of lunch you and hakyeon open up a lot to each other and from then on, it’s impossible for you two to just separate
  • you start meeting up more on campus, you spend time watching hakyeon sew or draw and he helps you study in your other courses 
  • and it goes from just sitting together in empty classrooms talking like friends and you praising his artistic fashion skill and him quizzing you on your note cards to something more
  • one day you two see each other after his swimming practice and he comes out with slightly messy hair, telling you he wants to go back to his dorm to get some things before you guys go and do your usual little study together thing and you’re a little nervous because his dorm?? you’ve never been there before,,,,and you tell yourself don’t be nervous it’s going to take five minutes
  • but somehow you end up standing in the middle of his room and his gym bags on the floor and your own backpack is forgotten in some corner of the room and it’s so clean for a college students dorm, he even has flowers in a vase on his desk but before you know it your backed up against that desk and hakyeon’s warm skin is practically driving you crazy and he lets his hands settle on the side of your neck
  • and he whispers again about how you attract him, how something about you makes him never want to let you go
  • and the beautiful friendship you two have cultivated on the truths of your weaknesses turns into something more as hakyeon kisses you for the first time and from then on, you two melt into each other like nothing else matters
  • and hakyeon makes sure you know this is not a once in a lifetime thing, he keeps you close against his chest and he tells you straight forwardly that he’s never loved someone the way he loves you - he’s never wanted to fully protect someone, the way he wants to protect you
  • and you too, you look up at him and you tell him that you’re tired of seeing him being used left and right - you’re going to protect him too
  • and when the campus hears about you two dating everything goes wiLD 
  • and even his friends are like we need to see it to believe it and hakyeon jsut casually holds you around the waist as he walks you to class and kisses you on the forehead before you go
  • these two dudes named hongbin and ken come up to you in class and they’re like “Are you dating Hakyeon??” and you’re like um.,, yes,,, why? and ken’s like “Hongbin you owe me fifty bucks” and you’re like ?? (don’t worry, you get introduced to them later hakyeon’s like these are the guys i know from high school- they thought id never date anyone in my life, guess they were wrong)
  • the one named hyuk leans over and is like “i hope you know what you’re getting into, hakyeon is such a -” and this is the moment when he probably gets smacked upside the head with a notebook
  • and as you and hakyeon grow even closer now that you’re together you see that his caring side really has no limits like he constantly asks if you’re ok or need anything, probably carried around one of those little first aid kits if anything, and when there’s even so much as a slight wind he shrugs off his jacket and hands it to you
  • and hakyeon spends a lot of time drawing and sewing and you get into the habit of helping him out when you can and even picking up on sewing with him it’s cute you two working together to help him get some outfits done for school
  • and you’re always excited to see what hakyeon has drawn up and he’s always the most excited to show you 
  • and he also adores going shopping with you because he has such good taste ????? that anything he picks out is just perfect and you’re like hakyeon you’re the best boyfriend but also stylist and he’s like im a fashion major for a reason hehe
  • and when you can you go to all his swim meets to support him and you even make little banners for him which hakyeon hangs up in his room because he thinks they’re aDORable 
  • the two of you sitting cooly, sipping lattes, talking about the latest episodes of dramas you are both really into and everyone doing a double take because you’re the most fashionable couple on campus tbh
  • the fashion column hakyeon writes for also becomes a love advice column because now that he’s dating he thinks he has some merit to help others with their relationship but tbh most of it is him just ranting about how amazing it is dating you and how much he loves you it’s kind of cute but you’re also like hakyeon please the whole campus now knows that i give you shoulder massages and am good at making green tea which is not really what i want them to know
  • hakyeon sketching outfits one day but then he notices he’s stopped and started sketching a portrait of you instead 
  • hakyeon sometimes nagging at you for not keeping your dorm as clean as his and you’re like hakyEon and he’s like ‘we are going to ikea and getting you a new desk that one is falling apart’
  • he’s totally a fan of calling you cute nicknames in public and when you’re hanging out with like ravi or ken they do the gagging noises and  hakyeon doesn’t even care he’s so focused on you and you’re just like hey guys don’t be jealous of this beautiful thing hakyeon and i have~~~
  • on those rare occasions when you two are so tired neither of you cares enough to try you both just put on face masks while wearing sweatpants and order pizza and watch movies and you’re like if only the campus knew this side of you hakyeon and he’s just like they never will this is just between me and you who i trust the most in this world, now pass me a slice
  • falling asleep over your notes and hakyeon carrying you all the way back to your dorm as your roommate swoons over what a good boyfriend he is hehe
  • bonus: you and hakyeon take an elective drawing class together and you’re like hakyeon,,,,,,,,i can only draw stick figures and he’s like baby that’s fine as long as you make me the most handsome stick figure 
Seungwoo as your boyfriend

A/N: There is nothing of Victon when it comes to writings, so I’m taking the initiative to start filling up their scenario tag – feel free to request things of them :) (Help I’m gonna’ wreck myself while writing this)


  • Affectionate boyfriend right here
  • Honestly he’s so caring and will look after you at all times
  • ”Seungwoo, can you help me reach that?”
  • ”Of course, sweetie.”
  • Husband and wife type of relationship
  • Except you’re stuck in the honeymoon phase for so long
  • He smiles at you ALL THE TIME
  • Because you make his heart light up
  • One time you apologised if you were being grumpy because you were on your period and he came home with chocolate, flowers and takeaway pizza
  • Serenades you with Beast ballads
  • Is always very thankful if you compliment his voice
  • If you babysit with him, you’ll probably fall even more in love because he seems like such a good dad
  • Since he has a very calm personality, only his presence would be very soothing to you if you were stressed or sad
  • He’d pull you close, wrapping his arms around you and resting his head on yours
  • “It’s going to be okay, baby”
  • He loves holding you in general – he’s always holding you while you sleep
  • Sometimes he pulls you on top of him and lets you use his chest as your pillow
  • He carries your bags if you’re out running errands
  • Cute lunch dates where you take candid pictures of him and he is smiling in ALL OF THEM, when does he ever frown
  • I’ll tell you when, if you ever deny him something
  • Like if he’s going in for a kiss and you’re like “Seungwoo, not now.”
  • Fighting between the two of you is very rare – It only happens when it comes to very serious things like moving in with each other and you’re both unsure about how to make it work.
  • It’s mostly because you both want to be together as often as possible but are scared if it will affect your relationship negatively.
  • It always works out though
  • Oh and in bed he’s a soft dom
  • It’s very sweet and loving, nothing too crazy (very very nice though)
  • Kisses your temple a lot because he’s too lazy to lean far down
  • You watch tv shows together at night, but are too lazy to get up when it’s over so you just sit there in the dark talking about everything and nothing
  • You lie down in his lap and he strokes your hair while you talk
  • Your parents LOVE Seungwoo
  • “He’s a keeper, I wouldn’t mind having him as my son in law.” –Your mom
  • You freak out a bit because wow your parents love your boyfriend
  • It makes you love him even more
  • On the way home from your parents’, in the car:
  • “Seungwoo, I love you.”
  • “I love you too, Y/N.”
  • ·      “No like – I really really love you, so much.”
  • “I really really love you so much too.”
  • This is one of those kinds of relationships you should really treasure because it is intense, but only good intense and so healthy and wonderful and please please take care of this beautiful boy who deserves the world.

A look inside NYC’s floating food forest, where you can pick free kale, berries and more

One artistic activist hopes to challenge the idea that public lands can’t be used to provide people with fresh, healthy food. By building and maintaining a floating “edible food forest,” Mary Mattingly, a 37-year-old artist, has created an alternative, edible reality that could serve as a model for the city’s future.

I count the steps from one end of my island to the other
Its 100 steps from where I sleep to the sea
And when I say I’ve learned all there is to know
Well there’s another little island lesson, grandma Tala shows me

I know where I am from the scent of the breeze
The ascent of the climb from the tangle of the trees
From the angle of the mountain to the sand on our island shore
I’ve been here before

There’s gotta be more
I know there’s more, there’s always more
Someday I’ll be out on the sea
And I’m gonna see more
Yes, there’s gotta be more
I know there’s more, there’s always more

Moana slow down
Sorry I’m always in somebody’s way
They do the same thing every day
They work, they eat, they sleep, they pray
They tell me “Moana calm down”
That’s all they ever seem to say
The other kids just dance and play
How can you play there’s so much out there to explore

She stares at the sky, she stumbles down the beaches
She mumbles all the names that her grandma
Tala teaches
And I wanna soar
With one foot here and another in the distant past
So much to explore

Shes growing up too fast
Like I said before
There’s gotta be more
I know there’s more, there’s always more
One day I’ll be brave and sail on the wave
That leads me to more
There’s gotta be more
I know there’s more, there’s always more
My father the Chief, says “Don’t cross the reef”
But oh every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back to the sea
I’m standing at the edge of the sea
As they all say “Moana slow down, Moana dream small, Moana don’t drown”
Can you drown at the call of the sea?
‘Cause I can hear it calling me

Aue, aue

A thousand years ago, we used to sail to distant islands
A thousand years ago, Maui spoke to the sea
So maybe, just maybe, I was born to break the silence
I know my story could be extraordinary
I know my story doesn’t end at the shore

There’s gotta be more
I know there’s more, there’s always more
I’m gonna break through, and find something new
I’m gonna find more
There’s gotta be more
I know there’s more, there’s always more
One day I’ll decide to roll with the tide
And I’m gonna see
Moana stand tall
I will cross the divide, I will ride
I will see what’s on the other side
Moana stand proud
With the ocean as my guide, on the tide
I will go where no one’s ever been before
There’s always more

  • he has to take care his younger bros
  • lee minhyung and lee donghyuck
  • the next few days
  • johnny keeps seeing taeyong come to the grocery store
  • and this time he doesn’t only buy chocolate
  • he buys his other groceries too
  • and it makes johnny even happier
  • bcs that way he sees taeyong even more
  • one day tho
  • when he’s just casually looking around for ppl who need help
  • lol what kind of lie everyone knows he’s looking around for ty
  • he suddenly he feels a tap on his shoulder!!
  • it’s taeyong
  • he wanted to ask if they still had the chocolate that he always bought
  • unfortunately they didn’t :”)))
  • that’s when johnny remembers!!!

  • so john asks ty if he wants the chocolate
  • and taeyong is all like omg no it’s ok!!!
  • but ofc johnny insists
  • he even makes taeyong wait for a minute so he can get it for him
  • ty just waits there w a big smile on his face
  • bcs this boi johnny is just too sweet for him
  • he’s even sweeter than his fave chocolate wow

  • but when he gets back
  • taeyong’s still there
  • and the moment tyong sees that johnny’s back

  • it makes johnny’s heart go !oh my gosh!
  • and he hands the chocolate over to taeyong
  • dude
  • taeyong thanks him 10000000000 times
  • and johnny turns a bit shy bcs taeyong is just too cute
  • scratching the back of his neck telling ty it’s nothing
  • after that moment
  • taeyong starts talking to johnny more
  • ofc this makes johnny v happy
  • ten and jaehyun highkey shipping them
  • taeyong even makes his little brothers apply for a job in the grocery shop
  • aka another excuse for him to see johnny even more
  • bcs he always comes to pick up hyuck and mark
  • u kno donghyuck just loves teasing johnyong tho
  • bcs hyuck knows taeyong likes johnny a lot
  • so ofc he tries to get them together
  • w the help of his big bro mark
  • what he does???
  • well rlly he pretty much tried everything
  • and all of his ideas didn’t work :”))
  • one day tho
  • he thought it would be a GREAT idea to lock up johnyong in the rlly small storage room of the store
  • he’s gonna get his ass whooped by taeyong when they get back home
  • i mean
  • if taeyong gets back home
  • while donghyuck was collecting his stuff in the storage room
  • when suddenly they heard the door close
  • and they get locked up in the storage room
  • :”)
  • ty can hear donghyuck and mark’s giggles behind the door
  • and ty just sighs and hopes that johnny gets them out soon
  • problem is
  • johnny can’t find the spare key of the storage room
  • oh no
  • might i add that donghyuck turned off the lights
  • it’s not that dark but it’s dark enough to not be able to find keys
  • and even tho johnny knows where the switch is
  • he still couldn’t find it
  • and so johnyong
  • spends 20 minutes of their life
  • awkwardly looking for the spare key
  • bumping heads
  • yo dudes johnny is actually a bit shy shy shy atm
  • but at the same time
  • he’s gonna use the lack of space as an excuse to stand closer to ty
  • but he still keeps a distance bcs he doesn’t want to make taeyong uncomfortable
  • it’s 11:15pm and i just kno this is shit
  • suddenly tho
  • johnny remembers where he put the key
  • problem is that it’s behind taeyong
  • and taeyong doesn’t have enough space anymore to turn around
  • :”))))
  • so johnny’s all like “uhm im so sorry but”
  • johnny doesn’t even wait for ty’s reply
  • he just leans in rlly close and ofc ty goes !!!!!
  • bye taeyong thought johnny was gonna kiss him
  • but john’s just grabbing for the keys that’s behind tae
  • and taeyong actually closed his eyes omg
  • so ofc when johnny looks at taeyong
  • ty’s there w his eyes closed
  • and johnny’s like???
  • but then he goes u kno what
  • fuck it all im gonna kiss him
  • so ofc he leans in and softly kisses taeyong
  • lol bye i live for johnyong
  • their kiss doesn’t last for long tho
  • bcs donghyuck ends up opening the door to the storage room
  • he thought they fainted or something
  • but no they’re actually kissing boo
  • donghyuck just had to scream
  • ofc he had to
  • so obviously ten and jaehyun heard donghyuck’s screams
  • and they immediately ran up to johnny congratulating him
  • which ends w taeyong hiding behind johnny
  • and johnny scratching the back of his neck as ten and jaehyun tell taeyong about how long johnny has wanted to ask taeyong out
  • but johnny hasn’t even asked him out yet :”)))

iinterstellar-astronaut  asked:

I know it's not uber popular but, children of Hades headcanons?

welcome to the corny collins show! today’s special guest, @vivilevone,

side note: i had a whole thing written and i fuckin reloaded the page. i hate everything take 2

  • Hades kids are very quiet, and people think it’s because they’re shy or want to have an air of mystery
  • But no, mostly they’re just really confused
  • Hades kids daydream a lot
    • this can result in nearly getting shot by an arrow during target practices or the like
  • Sometimes campers will toss something at a Hades kid and yell “catch!” and watch as they fumble with whatever it is
  • except Leo Valdez, he throws things and yells “bomb!” and watches them panic
            • but Leo Valdez is a disaster so whatever
  • the Hades cabin have very independent lives, they aren’t codependent, but they are there for each other
  • it’s subtle though, like if someone has had a bad day the rest of the cabin will sneak some food back to the bunk for them, or leave them chocolate, or talk to them more
  • on the flip side, Hades kids can get annoyed really easily
    • The cabin has a sort of tradition that whenever two campers are pissed they just “duel” it out
    • basically they try to do the most impressive death-related thing
    • this results in a lot of trips to the infirmary because “YOU ARE KILLING YOURSELVES DIDN’T YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENED TO NICO JESUS CHRIST YOU GUYS”
  • this duel-like habit is put to an abrupt end when someone literally summons Hades himself
    • Hades was in the middle of a nap and did not appreciate being called in

a concept:bismuth finds a stray dog on the beach and cries its the cuttest thing she ever witnessed so she takes it home.she promises the cgs she wont bring any more

one week later the house has aproximately 86 puppies and everytime the cgs think bismuth will stop she brings 3 more home.where is she getting all those puppies

ok so I was giving @naggyfriend an enormous list of my fave YGO fics from my and a03 collections, and I guess I should probably make my own version of the giant list

KEEP IN MIND THOUGH that you’ll have to look for the fics on my favourites lists yourself (which I am linking however) - there’s just too many for me to link individually, but I’ve included the name and author of them so yeah

[Last updated April of 2016, I need to update it!]

anonymous asked:

Would you be up to writing a blurb about how niall would react when he finds out you're pregnant?

1-2-3-4 Tell Me That You Love Me More

One missed period.  Two pink lines.  Three pregnancy tests.  Four hours until Niall gets home.  

Sitting on the bathroom floor you stared in disbelief at the three tests - all positive.  Your first instinct was to yell out “How could this have happened!?”  Admittedly that seemed pretty juvenile; you knew exactly how this happened.  You and Niall had been together for years - since the early days of 1D.  You’d cycled through almost all the different types of birth control during that time, trying to find what worked best for you and your body.  You’d finally settled on the pill.  It had been working just fine…..until it didn’t, apparently.
