Guys guys GUYS I’m finally reading the Fantastic Beasts Screenplay!!! ❤️❤️❤️ I’m already halfway through and I think I would’ve finished it already if it weren’t for the distraction that is life. But anyway, it is so much fun! Really could we expect any less from J.K. Rowling the Queen? 😊❤️📚

Hey, onision, I figured that since the very first sentence that your wrote has three or four “I"s in it, that this may help you. Same with the "show, don’t tell” thing. But… since you take any actual criticism with a grain of salt, you’ll prob'ly ignore this.

And, really, there are a multitude of writing blogs and programs and what have you out there that you can follow and actually learn from. Here, let me give you a list (since I appear to be a habitual list maker, though there are blogs that I follow that are missing from this list, I will add them at another time) and, having this list, there should be no excuse why you can’t be a better fucking writer, Gerg:

@wellreadandwellfed@whatlovelybooks@womenreading@youngadultatbooktopia@youngadultread

I have reached over 2,000 followers here on this blog and am absolutely amazed. I was supposed to do a follow forever on my blog’s 1-year-anniversary, however, I forgot… which is why I’m doing one to celebrate me reaching over 2,000+ followers! (I wish I had enough money to do a giveaway, but I felt like doing a follow forever was good enough for now.) Thank you all so much for following me! I’m glad to know that there are other people out there who are equally obsessed with reading as I am. I love all of my followers and if I’ve forgotten to add you, then I’m really terribly sorry.

I would like to thank these blogs for being absolutely wonderful and for making tumblr amazing and bookish, of course.
