"You don’t ask people with knives in their stomachs what would make them happy; happiness is no longer the point. It’s all about survival; it’s all about whether you pull the knife out and bleed to death or keep it in."-Nick Hornby (via psych-facts)

Anonymous said: Any tips on writing?
Make sure what you’re writing about is important to you. If you’re afraid to share it, that’s good. Something that personal should be terrifying to share. Share it anyway. Believe in what you’re saying or no one else will. If you’re lying to your reader, make sure it’s intentional and you can explain why it was necessary. Writing fiction is not lying. Not believing in what you’re writing is lying. Don’t worry if it’s “good” or “bad” writing. Write whatever’s on your mind and then perfect it through editing. Use simple language and broad ideas. Get rid of the fluff. Don’t tell the reader how you feel, show them with details. Write often enough that the activity becomes a routine. It will feel easier then.
