More and more I think there’s an element of fiction writing that’s performative. If you want your stories to carry a particular charge of feeling, you have to experience that feeling while you’re working. I don’t know that you can fake it, or at least I don’t know that I’ve ever been able to fake it, because the choices you make when you’re writing—the rhythms you adopt, the phrases you construct, the effect one word has when it’s nestled alongside another—are so highly nuanced, and have so much to do with the ultimate emotional effect of a story, so that if you aren’t feeling along with your sentences, your instincts will gradually lead you astray.

The Rumpus Interview With Kevin Brockmeier

This is, no surprise, really really great.

This is really interesting! Do you guys feel this way when you write? I think I only do sometimes, and I would categorize those times as when I feel “inspired” or when “the muses speak to me”, etc. But it’s definitely not how I feel when I’m slogging away at something.

This is really weird because I’m pretty sure I wrote the comment right above this one, but it’s not sourced anywhere. Also weird that I can find something on Tumblr and be sure that I wrote it.

I think it’s so attractive when you’re with a girl who comes off as a hard ass, because when you make her moan she’s so vulnerable and you realize in that moment you broke everything she built.

holy fuck

ACCEPT IT! People who comment are just jelly

Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

Forever reblog

It’s ironic that this is tagged NSFW

It’s weird that Amazon.com shares its name with the largest rainforest in the world, and yet the 2 products it manufactures are named after things that could destroy said rainforest, “Kindle” and “Fire”.
