Okay no. This is terrible. Guys. I really, REALLY need you to raise some awareness on the riots in Scotland. Violence has broken out. Videos have come out of voters kicking and attacking each other. There’s alleged (I use the word alleged as I am not sure) stabbings and an attack with the weapon being the hammer.
Glasgow City Centre is absolutely rife with violence. Scotland did not vote for violence, riots and absolute shameful acts of hatred in this country. People are being attacked, it’s dangerous and the fact that this isn’t being broadcasted whatsoever baffles me. Not really actually, due to a bias.
Just, please. Raise awareness. Reblog this. Those in Scotland, stay safe. As much as it is ridiculous to say, yes badges, stickers? Take them off! Saltires, don’t make them visible. Do not engage with any rioters. Just please be safe!
This is only one picture of what’s happening. I won’t even link the videos. It’s disgusting.
needless to say I didn’t show him my “eggroll”
anyway howd he get in there
The best ever episode of catfish
Hello there, writerly friend~ ♥︎
I know where you are coming from. Right now, before the story even begins— I can feel this certain pull when I think about my characters. it’s a strange sense of certainty, like the light of a torch inside of a dark tunnel. I don’t know where i am going, but I trust that the characters will take me there… and they always do.
The thing is, I didn’t start like this.
Back when I first started writing, I used to roll my eyes at the writers who claimed that they had no control over the story.
"Of course you have control! You are the one writing the story, just change what they say," Young Max said, rolling his eyes so hard they nearly fell out of their sockets.
It took me a while to understand that, (first off) all writers are different, but also that there seemed to be this unspoken truth that most writers had no control. It took me a long while to understand that. I used to plot like crazy. I used to think that I was the movie director, telling the actors what to do and shouting ‘CUT!’ when they screwed up a line.
Over time, though, I realized that I was not the director… but merely the camera-man. I am not calling the shots, I just show up every day at the same time, and the actors follow up on the script given to them by someone I have never met. Sure, sometimes I get a feeling for where things are going— but at the end of the day I am just the guy with the camera.
Now, I know what you must be thinking:
"Great, Max is going to tell me that I have to write, and practice, and wait until I am good enough to be able to ‘feel’ that pull or whatever he talked about,” said the Strawman, throwing his arms in the air like he truly did not care.
Nope. Although I think time and practice played a great part in this— I can tell you that the most important factor in learning to trust my characters was to…
It’s time for my catchphrase, everybody, at the count of 1-2-3:
GET OUT OF THE WAY OF THE STORY.
Seriously. The most important lesson is to learn to step aside and let the story go. You are the person with the camera. Your job is to record what is going on. Nothing else. Nothing more. You want your characters to shine? You want your characters to grow before your eyes? Get out of the way of the story. I want you to picture a movie set where the camera-man started yelling at the actors:
- "I am just not sure if anyone is going to take this story seriously."
- "I feel like this story has been told before."
- "I worry what people will think of me if they read this story."
I don’t know about you, but I would get a little fed up if my camera-man kept interrupting me in the middle of a scene.
Here’s what I want you to do, okay? I want you to keep writing. I want you to step aside and write. Go with the flow. Learn to trust your characters. You want them to behave like people? Then treat them like people. Simple as that c;
I hope this helps! If you, or any other writerly friends, have any questions, then make sure to send them my way.
Keep writing, writerly friend~ ♥︎
