People Are Delicious.

Ask me anything   About me   

Sometimes frantic, always hopeful, usually hungry.

"One of the biggest, and possibly the biggest, obstacle to becoming a writer — I’ve said this from a slightly different angle in another answer — is learning to live with the fact that the wonderful story in your head is infinitely better, truer, more moving, more fascinating, more perceptive, than anything you’re going to manage to get down on paper. (And if you ever think otherwise, then you’ve turned into an arrogant self-satisfied prat, and should look for another job or another avocation or another weekend activity.) So you have to learn to live with the fact that you’re never going to write well enough. Of course that’s what keeps you trying — trying as hard as you can — which is a good thing. As I started off saying, writing takes practise."

Robin McKinley, on advice to those who would like to be writers (via dinosaurjam)

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again… who doesn’t heart McKinley?
