“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

“Child, to say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more or less or other than what you really mean; that’s the whole art and joy of words”

Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis (via wewillmakehistory)

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

“You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.”
