A Very Small Diving Board

theartofnotwriting:

This is a very short list, far from comprehensive, but I wanted to post it anyway— sometimes the sea of books that exist, even YA books, is so large and murky that we aren’t sure how to navigate it and we default to reading the same kinds of books we’ve already been exposed to. But if you have a…

is it bad that I’m kind of in love with a book character and I’m actually like having dreams about them even though I don’t know what exactly they look like?? I’m basically using the picture in my head and having dreams about them omg that’s so weird

SPOILERS FOR PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT HAVE READ ALL OF THE ACROSS THE UNIVERSE TRILOGY BY BETH REVIS!!!
I usually try to avoid posting things that I have done myself, but since this is FROM a book, I thought I’d give it a shot. 
This started as a doodle and then I saw a post by the lovely bethrevis and caught a little bug. This bug told me to draw Amy from Across the Universe. But I’ve already drawn Amy (albeit cryogenically frozen) and thought, why not draw both Amy AND Elder? And then I thought, why not add Orion into the mix. But how?!
Thus, the image before you was born! I drew Amy and Elder viewing Orion as he is frozen in the cryogenic chamber (which was a very bad idea on Amy and Elder’s parts, considering Orion wasn’t properly prepared. But whatever. They panicked). 
I tried to make Elder a little less angry (like Amy is) and a little more forlorn. (Might I mention that since I do not often draw people of colour other than pasty white like myself that drawing and shading Elder was quite the trial?)
So, yeah. Here’s Amy and Elder!

it’s funny how the most unappreciated character in harry potter is harry potter

i’ve never heard anyone answer the question ‘who’s your favourite harry potter character’ with ‘harry potter’

shizukuns:

[strums guitar] editors don’t just check grammar but entire story structure [strums faster] most novels go through multiple read-throughs with an editor and assistants on plot, characters, pacing, tone, the list goes on [violent guitar solo] IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT GRAMMAR AND SENTENCE STRUCTURE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT A COPY EDITOR FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

So, I Saw the Divergent Movie...!

theartofnotwriting:

A few weeks ago I packed up a suitcase and flew to LA and bought some Milk Duds and watched the Divergent movie.

You know. As one does. (?!!)

It’s hard to prepare yourself for an experience like that, watching something that once existed only in your brain re-created on such a large scale….

I must have this. If nothing else, the Narnia one.

Books do make the best weapons! For arguments as well as, um, bashing.
