I think we just wrote the greatest horror movie of all time in 20 minutes.
Live, love, laugh, learn, lie to ur parents about your relationships till you’re financially stable
Anne Lamott has some very helpful insights, but I absolutely hate her attitude regarding new writers who are motivated to get published.
The whole idea that it’s arrogant or impetuous to want to understand -the very business that you want to get into- is some seriously discouraging, gatekeeping bullshit. As though it is so comical for a writer to ask “How does one get an agent” before they have a completed manuscript that they’ve painstakingly workshopped several times over. I would imagine that is something worth knowing before you embark on a huge project.
It also belies her attitude that no one~ could possibly~ ever~ have an idea worthy of being that confident, because she didn’t. Like, I’m sorry, but Anne Lamott never wrote a cultural phenomenon. I do not doubt that JK Rowling found out everything she could about publishing while she was writing. Soooo…
I honestly feel bad for people who try to embarrass me or hurt my feelings bc I’m not ashamed of myself and you cannot make me ashamed of myself so like… maybe stop wasting yr time
they’re probably really boring so make sure your phones fully charged
I keep saying I can’t wait until we can get a cat but its going to be so hard because you can’t save all the cats.

Seen this happen a couple times now.
