people saying negative things about a character you love that aren’t even constructive criticisms of their character or valid points and are just pointlessly and immaturely rude

As much as I love reading I sometimes procrastinate about reading, and then when I sit down and read I think: god damn why did I not choose to read this sooner?
and then I think: oh right, it’s because I’m an idiot.

This goes out to anyone who’s ever chosen a book over friends, cried through a last chapter in public, or talked about fictional characters as if they were real people. We feel you.

Stop everything you are doing right now and WATCH THIS

gingerrivers asked

Z, do you have any tips on writing pain? Not so much life threatening pain, but something long the lines of pulling a muscle or accidentally cutting your flesh? Please and thank you.

thetrolliestcritic:

You should check out my wounds tag

Here are some things on pulling muscles

As for accidental cuts, scratches, and things like that, the pain is usually minor but initial shock tends to exaggerate what you feel. Typically, you don’t have much to worry about these types of injuries other than perhaps infection, which can be avoided with putting rubbing alcohol or peroxide (peroxide usually does not sting/burn) onto the wound. Bleeding is usually minimal.
