Just start writing. It doesn’t matter if it’s going to be good. It doesn’t matter what’s popular in the market. It doesn’t matter if someone somewhere will write a review later and call it stilted or say that you, the author, smell like goat farts. It doesn’t matter if it’ll get you an agent. The future of your writing is not your concern. The future is never a writer’s concern. Just start writing.
Sometimes she would hear her father’s voice, but always from a long way off, and no matter how hard she ran after it, it would grow fainter and fainter.
Power Structure of Oppression
Notice how this shit all rests on “acts of subtle bias”.
This is why you don’t allow that shit to go unchecked if you can possibly stand to engage with it. Jokes, that sort of bullshit, they lay the foundation for all that other shit.
Don’t do it. Don’t excuse it.
the academy award goes to me for acting like i give a fuck
IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT KIND OF WRITER YOU ARE YOU CAN BE WRITING: POEMS, FANFICS, IDK NORMAL FICS, NOVELS, SHORT STORIES, IDK ANYTHING!! JUST REBLOG!!!
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
I used to work at a place with a pantry to help people with the items unable to be purchased with food stamps (shampoo, soap, cleaning supplies, toilet paper).
Let’s just say we had a lot of people sent to us through the organization we were helping, and most of them were on food stamps. They just needed to be clean so they would stop getting weird looks at work for smelling bad, or so their kids would stop being bullied at school, or to have a clean house so their kids wouldn’t get sick. A lot of times we had to deliver things to their houses because they needed to save what little gas they had for getting their kids to school or to get to work. And when they saw how kind I was, how I didn’t judge them, several ladies burst into tears and would hug me.
Oh also, about 90% off the people sent to us were women.
Yeah, I will never treat people on food stamps badly, never.
This is what happens for real when I can’t find the right words.
Yes. Also cannot even with this post omg.
Shovel for food.
So…the cats are like the French

This tweet is so important to me
The skull-shaped Snapdragon Flower Dragon(Antirrhinum majus) seed pod. The Antirrhinum, commonly known as the snapdragon has been a popular garden plant for many years. Also known as the dragon flower, its common name derives from the resemblance of the flower to a dragon’s head.Yet once the flower has died, leaving behind the seed pod, something a little more macabre appears. The dragon – just a visual metaphor after all – appears to have a skull.
You guys have no idea how much money I’d save because I just wanna see the cat all the time.
