Brb, pretending to be an apatosaurus.

Ask me anything.

INFP, Neutral Good, and an omnivore frequently masquerading as an herbivore.

Things which are an absolute delight unto the very cockles of my heart include apple orchards on windy days, baking bread, cat paws, naps, bicycles, things with owls, tall tales and fairy-tales, knee bruises, hedgehogs, blustery days, eating bowls of salad as big as my head, giraffes, freckles, skirts and sweaters, the sea-shore, snuggling up under a bunch of blankets, hooping, spending afternoons in libraries, and big warm bowls of noodles and cups of tea or coffee.

Here are some nice tags.

1.
why isn’t every picture that exists of you with someone else
a picture of you with me instead

all of these people are so many people
and none of these people are me

 

2.
i am sitting in a corner eleven stories high and
i am a very long time away from you

 

3.
you are drinking my blood in a non-literal way
we laugh but make extremely worried faces
i am being myopic because there is only
one screen in front of me and one screen in front of you
and we are practically touching in here
(feeling real is hard work / moving is even harder)

 

4.
spring forward, fall back down
i’m trying not to wonder where you are

are you listening to this too

 

5.
it seems irrational that it is 2014
and i cannot just be in love with another person
who wants to be near me in the same ways
an advance in date doesn’t negate a regard for others
ok i understand but i will try to get what i want anyway
can everyone help

like hello welcome to this place
let’s both just stay

a long time ago someone told me that
it’s not cute to be persistent
(i know you don’t belong to me)
but i am so good at it
i think you will agree

 

6.
after three hours in karpeles i took a two hour walk
i made myself alone because there are too many books in the world already
and you are too good
you squeezed a sigh out of me when i returned and i felt found

 

7.
last night i dreamt someone offered me one thousand dollars to close my eyes and sit in a chair for sixty seconds and instead i moved onto the floor, kneeled and retched loudly in front of him. i stared at my hands pressed flat against the floor and lifted them up one by one. i slowly crawled out of the room.

Maria Falconetti in La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc, 1928

In La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc, Carl Dreyer directed one of the great performances of the cinema and in the process created one of its greatest icons. Maria (Renée) Falconetti is remarkable. On stage from the age of eighteen, she starred in her only film, at the age of thirty-five, playing a nineteen year old virgin. The strength of Falconetti’s performance is such that her name is listed in most standard encyclopedias of the cinema and her performance has inspired artists as diverse as Patti Smith (“You got Balls” ) and Jean-Luc Godard (from Vivre sa vie [1962] through to Histoire(s) du Cinéma [1988-97]). 

None of the actors wears any makeup, which was unheard of in the silent era. Dreyer thought this lent strength to the characters’ faces.

simplefeasts asked: Please explain to me what "character maps" are they look interesting and I'd like to use them for my novel. Thanks! This is Kim Maureen's friend from Kent again.

Character maps can be really useful! It’s basically a way to visually lay out a bunch of components about your character so you can view it all at once in a slimmed-down, bare-bones format.

The ones I did for my novel in progress cover a slew of things - basic hobbies/likes, the main ways the characters tend to think, dominant characteristics, but then also plot-related things. One character has a branch all related to how they handled a trauma they suffered as a child and how it continues to affect them. Another has a branch exploring their body language because it’s really important for that character. Another has a branch about their fun, infectious personality and how that ends up being a crutch for them.

Here’s a super-simple character map for Kristoff from Disney’s Frozen; I didn’t put much thought into it, I just whipped it up real quick as an example, but it gives you an idea of how both character information and plot information can be incorporated:

If I were actually making a map for him I’d be more detailed about these things and a little more clear because I like detail, but really, this level of info is all you need if that’s all you want. It’s just a basic way to sort of plan out things and compare it to other aspects which are, conveniently, right there on the same page.

Hope this helps! Obviously not every method works for everyone, but as I was making my maps for this novel, I found out new things about the characters through the map-making process. So it’s worth a try, at least.

Today at work I looked super cute, and my coworkers did cute things for me for my birthday. A+ good.

I ACCOMPLISHED IMPORTANT THINGS

Been busting my butt the past few days to get these done. They take longer than you’d think. And more brain energy. Woo.
