“If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones.”

“I’ll leave you with this tidbit. 73% of all female characters in the 100 highest grossing films of 2013 were Caucasian, 14% were African American, 5% were Latina, 3% were Asian, and another 3% were aliens or fantasy races. Yes. In 2013, American theater audiences were about as likely to see a woman of an animal species or completely made up race as they were to see an Asian woman.”

“Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”

William Faulkner (via feellng)

I Think I Can


maskandunveiling:

Lies, like engines,
whimper and hum,
shock-charge my pulse,
make lead feet run.

i-don’t-need-sleep
don’t-need-to-eat
love-my-sore-feet
won’t-know-defeat

Lies, like engines, 
heave Heaven-weight, 
boast Atlas-strength, 
eventually break.

i-don’t-
need-sleep
don’t-
need-to-eat
 
Love-
my-sore-feet 
don’t-know—
Defeat

political correctness kills creativity' if you can't create something without furthering the oppression of minorities, you aren’t a very creative person.
