  • Read Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller recently. A very good retelling of Greek mythology.

    For some reason I was not expecting something that pretty. Thank you!
    I am in a funk and not doing too hot. But trying to power through it. Will be back as soon as I can to respond to things and chat! Love y'all and happy writing.
    ALSO... What is up with all the hate people are giving BBCoders right now? These people put hours into their work so that someone else can use them for free. Love or hate them, at least respect their hard work. You going off about how you hate them without acknowledging that first makes others feel like shit. You can at least be decent and understand why people might like to use them or why a coder creates them in the first place. If you hate bbcodes, ignore them and look elsewhere! It's that simple. I'll never understand why people have to bash on others for something they like when it's not hurting anyone.

    Thank you to all our coders! You do so much for people who love to immerse themselves in a universe. Be that through the writing or through visuals or both.

    I agree that coders definitely shouldn't be put down for their work
    Though it goes both ways! I think many people have also been discriminated against for not wanting to use code. That doesn't excuse the hate, but it does provide a reason.
    There should just be more understanding and care all around ❤

    Couldn't agree more!

    Yep. It’s been going since forever and I’m not gonna lie it does get on my nerves a bit. Especially when people go as far as to accuse us of discrimination cause we didn’t use the color scheme that would suit a condition they happen to have but then refuse to approach the coder and ask politely.

    Just finished the first season of Westworld... It and The Leftovers has my heart and soul. Too good, too beautiful, too powerful.
    Had to put my dog down today. Might be distant these next few days.

    Same happened to me a few months ago. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I'm so sorry :/ It's hard when we lose our furry family.
    Fight Club (1999) is ten sorts of crazy.

    I love it.

    Oh, man. My boi Ebert is slamming this movie. Or is he somehow praising it?
    EVERYTHING'S SATIRICAL. I DON'T KNOW BACKWARDS FROM FORWARDS. SOMEONE SEND HELP.
    I'm down a job till April 13th b/c of the COVID crisis, so I'll have plenty of time to write while trying to look for temp work. :/

    Looks like I'm completely out of a job till the fall.
    Random thought of the night: It genuinely scares me how dependent I am on my family. Like, I've nothing if I haven't got them. I'd be ruined without them. And I don't mean family in a I'm married and have three kids kind of way. I mean the way in which I'm a grown ass adult and still cling to my parent's hip pockets and won't go out anywhere unless it's with one of my sisters.

    I am still such a child.
    I'm like a bird. If I'm happy and/or comfortable around the people I'm with, I'll make noise, sing songs, and say random things. If I'm not either of those two things, I'm quiet as a mouse.

    My parent's dislike of Bill Hader and reluctance towards watching anything he's in is BUMMING ME OUT. HE'S AMAZING. Barry, Documentary Now!, andThe Skeleton Twins is seriously very good.

    On another note... Jojo Rabbit was a phenomenal movie. Equal parts funny and happy and sad. Definitely one of my favorites of 2019.
    I hate those subtle transitions between what you think is good writing and what you know is bad writing. Like, let me stay blissfully unaware and somewhat content with my writing, please.
    2019 movies I still need to see:
    Parasite [x]
    The Lighthouse [x]
    The Last Black Man in San Francisco

    **If you've any other recommendations for movies just in general, lemme know!
    alfred.

    What the fuck even was The Lighthouse?
    Having a bit of a melt down. I might be absent for a few days here, but I'll shoot everyone a message when I get back. If I've expressed interest in joining anything, I'm very much still interested! I'm working on my characters in the workshop and I'll have them posted as soon as I can.
    I've the urge to share something with the world. To leave some small part of myself behind after I die or everything's gone to shit. But how is this feasible when I've an even stronger urge screaming at me to stay in bed all day and do nothing? Or why should it matter when there are so many other things I should be spending my time on? Things that are infinitely more important than writing some fantastical book about characters that could never dream of impacting the world the way I want them to? I mean... I'll give it a go, but I've been saying that since high school and it's been almost five years now with no progress.
    The song you're hearing is 'Dark was the night...'
    The man who wrote it was Willie Johnson.
    He died alone, blind, penniless, and sick but his song is out there now traveling the stars.
    The current state of the world is seriously bumming me out. It has been for some time. When do things get better? When can we all just rest peacefully and live our lives without some crisis breathing down our necks? When can we all be happy and content and not feel guilty about it? When will things finally be okay?
    What is up with me only picking movies with sad and/or ambiguous endings? Is this a sign? What is this? What does it mean?
