Language Cards On White Walls

I enjoy learning languages in general so this is where all of my language bits and pieces will go so that they don't overflow too much onto my main blog. I also enjoy writing, so there will be writing posts and book posts as well. Enjoy. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! (btw, I'm Summer!)
I’ve had this book for a while now, and JUST managed to finish it yesterday. 
Ouch.
Just… ouch. It played with subjects and ideas that I’ve been struggling with as well, and the characters seemed real. I also love the readers questions at the end, and might just play around with those for my own musings and personal exploration. I especially loved the question “did you like Alaska? Do you think it’s important to like people you read about?” I did actually ask myself that question while reading. Did I like Alaska? And the answer is still… I’m not sure. :) 
Bye! Happy day!

George R. R. Martin everyone.

My favourite thing about this gifset is that George R. R. Martin acknowledges both of these methods without insulting or dismissing the other. He is a fantastic writer and I know that some other fantastic writers swear by their methods and discount the others, which can be really disheartening as a young writer. Hearing him describe both of these methods without dismissing the other makes me very, very happy, as I am very much an architect and I always get so sad when every writer I look up to is like “NO PLANNING. PLANNING BAD. WRITERS DONT PLAN.”

So thank you, Mr. Martin.

I am by and large an architect but I am not opposed to my building gaining sentience and doing what it wants along the way, a la a gardener. So I feel this. I feel it so hard. Also:

"No one is purely an architect or a gardener in terms of writers, but many writers tend to one side or the other."

GEORGE R. R. MARTIN, YOU MAY NOT BE PERFECT, BUT THAT SENTENCE IS. THANK YOU.
