In case you’re having a bad day…here are some puppies sleeping with stuffed animals.

(Credit: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. A note on the first puppy: At 5-1/2 weeks old, Daisy was mauled by a larger dog. As a result of that attack, she lost an eye, hence the stitches. Daisy is now 6 months old and doing well!)

Tumblr Doms: referring to models and other women who you don’t know as “bitch”, “slut” and “whore” in your photo captions is SUCH a fucking turnoff oh my god. Cut that shit out and have the smallest ounce of fucking respect for these women who are sharing their images with the public.

boazpriestly:

  • Over-explanation. This includes prologues. “Prologues are never needed. You can usually throw them in the garbage. They’re usually put on as a patch.”
  • Too much data. “You’re trying to seduce your reader, not burden them,” Friedman said.
  • Over-writing, or “trying too hard.” “We think the more description we add, the more vivid it will be; but we don’t want to be distracted from the story” we open the book for.
  • Beginning the novel with an interior monologue or reflection. Usually this is written as the thoughts of a character who is sitting alone, musing and thinking back on a story. Just start with the story.
  • Beginning the novel with a flashback. Friedman isn’t entirely anti-flashback, but the novel’s opening page is the wrong place for one.
  • Beginning a novel with the “waking up sequence” of a character waking, getting out of bed, putting on slippers, heading for the kitchen and coffee…a cliche
  • Related cliche: beginning the novel with an alarm clock or a ringing phone
  • Starting out with an “ordinary day’s routine” for the main character
  • Beginning with “crisis moments” that aren’t unique: “When the doctor said ‘malignant,’ my life changed forever…” or “The day my father left us I was seven years old…”
  • Don’t start with a dialogue that doesn’t have any context. Building characterization through dialogue is okay anywhere else but there.
  • Starting with backstory, or “going back, then going forward.”
  • Info dump. More formally called “exposition.”
  • Character dump, which is four or more characters on the first page.

whitepeoplesaidwhat:

did you give yourself a pat on the back for this one?

You gave yourself a high five for sending this didn’t you. OMG so clever

This is your blog

that shit says “A safe place for Europeans/ American-Europeans/ Canadian-Europeans/ Australlian-Europeans/ ECT…to find joy and beauty in their race.”

White people need a safe space now?

Pale faces need a safe space? Was the entire globe not safe enough for you so you decided to make a blog with the same white people we all open magazines and see

with the same mayo wonder bread sandwiches we see on tv, in movies, on billboards, defining beauty everywhere we go, 

But that wasn’t assuring enough for you so you made a blog because white people already don’t have enough

Tell me why your blog look like i google searched crackers?

Why your blog look like i google searched white bread?

You better shut your dumb ass the fuck up because I’m the last one for you to try to get smart on, okay?
