This is one of my big pet peeves, and it happens more often than you’d think. Are we in the past? The distant future? An alternate present? I need to know to understand your story! 

Also note that it’s easier to get your cat to participate in your social media self-promo if you have a toy readily available.

First line of my WIP:
On the anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, Davy and I plot European domination over burgers and fries.

This says April 26, 1987—without saying April 26, 1987.

seeing someone from school in public


Especially after you graduated. You’re just like NO, NOOOOOOO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Him: Was the grocery store busy? You were gone a long time.

Me: No, I saw someone I knew from work…and spent extra time avoiding them.

  • Question: Um. Clint makes Steve and Bucky read Harry Potter. The Avengers all have very, very strong opinions about which house they get sorted into. Bucky thinks he's a Slytherin, but Steve says he's a Hufflepuff through and through. - Anonymous
  • Answer:


    "This isn’t a legitimate classification system," said Steve angrily, throwing the book onto the couch next to Clint. "This is bullshit. They’re children, for cripe’s sake.”

    Clint’s eyebrows rose to comical levels.

    "You can’t just isolate different children or—or— or try to predetermine their characters at age eleven," Steve said, thoroughly angry. "And you certainly can’t condemn an entire fourth of your school’s population to a villainy house, what the hell is that?”

    He started to pace.

    "As if people never change! As if there’s no moral or ethical growth after age eleven!

    Bucky reached over Clint and picked up the book. Clint gave him a look and he shrugged.

    "Hell, if it makes Steve this angry, I gotta check it out," he explained.


    "This isn’t a basis for education!" Bucky shouted. "Where are the art classes, huh? Kids this age should have access to art classes."

    "Exactly!" shouted Steve. "Maybe a little less institutionalized racism and a little more arts education, am I right?"

    Clint buried his head in his hands.

    Not convinced this is in character.

    BUT the need for ‘a little less institutionalized racism and a little more arts education’ is a perfect criticism of Hogwarts.

greenhouse garden shed

I’m sure I can clear a space for this in the garden…

I think this is the first garden shed I’ve ever liked then look of. And now I want to build it. (Why don’t I have a yard???)

  • Him: *does something slightly annoying*
  • Him: What? Now you're irate?
  • Me: I'm not irate--I'm mildly exasperated.
  • Him: Are you getting paid by the syllable?
