Advice? I don’t have advice. Stop aspiring and start writing. If you’re writing, you’re a writer. Write like you’re a goddamn death row inmate and the governor is out of the country and there’s no chance for a pardon. Write like you’re clinging to the edge of a cliff, white knuckles, on your last breath, and you’ve got just one last thing to say, like you’re a bird flying over us and you can see everything, and please, for God’s sake, tell us something that will save us from ourselves. Take a deep breath and tell us your deepest, darkest secret, so we can wipe our brow and know that we’re not alone. Write like you have a message from the king. Or don’t. Who knows, maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who doesn’t have to. »Alan Watts (via fatalistichues) (via quote-book) (via digitalbin) (via guerrillamamamedicine)

I’m growing as an individual, but you’re always growing. All of my albums are snapshots of where I am artistically. With this album, I’m at this expansion point in my consciousness and my awareness. Things are becoming clearer and clearer to me. — Mos Def on “The Ecstatic” (via casabey)

There was never any money in the career I picked.

brainfood-:

To be honest money never thrived in the “Arts,” numerous great artists that hold the status of “Icon” were famous after their death. They were homeless, unpublished, and unrecognizable. During their life it didn’t stop them from doing what they love, painting on a canvas, writing stories in novels, creating photographs…

Are we in the age of realists instead of surrealists? I don’t care that my pursuit in wanting to do art for the rest of my life won’t get me a foreign high class car, 6 bedroom house in the country, swanky townhouse in soho, or a closet with high end fashion. If I wanted those things then I would have went to college with those intentions.

I’m okay with living modestly, with having very few possessions but my camera, laptop, and an eye for photographs. If doing something that I love, that I TRULY love means I will have to sacrifice the “American Dream” and take hold of my own that comes with a limited bank account, I’ll accept it with a smile. Becoming something or doing something meaningful doesn’t have a price tag, neither does happiness.

I’m happy with my choice, it’s about time you respected that.

PZ: Amen.

Eight rules for writing a short story, by Kurt Vonnegut

piscesinpurple:

joshisinfinite:

  1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
  2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
  3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
  4. Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action.
  5. Start as close to the end as possible.
  6. Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them—in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
  7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
  8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To hell with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
