givemeajobplease: No, we can’t be friends. You don’t see me. You haven’t seen me for over 20 months. I was better as the skinny new girl with long, wavy hair. I was better as the girl who wanted to move to Bali the minute she arrived in DC. I don’t want to be friends. I don’t think I want you anymore, either…. It’s sad how well I can relate to this right now.

givemeajobplease: I walked to a Staples a few blocks away from work today to get paper and came back out the same door I entered, but somehow ended up at the White House. I don’t remember taking any turns, let alone wrong turns. But, I was at the White House, standing holding card stock paper in a five cent plastic…

givemeajobplease: Someday you won’t be 25-years-old and an idiot. You’ll always be two years younger than me, but someday you won’t be this stupid. I let you read it. All of it. Everything I wrote about you. We spent one hour on the front porch, riding out the rain. All of the neighbors asked, “Are you locked out”… “I won’t ever think of anyone else in my bones like I do...

givemeajobplease: The jeweler is a family jeweler, he lives in Philly. He made her a ring for her eighteenth birthday from her father’s cufflinks and an old ring. You’re going to make her one from a family ring. Something new and better. I’m listening, sort of. It’s just…will I ever want a ring from someone? Is…

christopherlindstrom: I look for signs everywhere Buy lucky strikes! Buy lucky strikes! in the silence among couches in a well lit room with you and the porous walls that let air come and go until there is no air at all and the floor creaks under the weight of a shoe being tied in silence There are no signs…

givemeajobplease: I meant to go to Target, but I kept walking and I got an 8oz. coffee. The barista held up the 8oz cup next to the 12oz cup and raised his eyebrows like, “Really?” And I nodded yes. I meant to go to Target then, but I saw that the two front window chairs that are never available on the weeknds… This is what I used to do all the time. I used to marvel at daily events. I...

givemeajobplease: There is a girl I follow on tumblr who has done a great job of making a brand of and name for herself, but slowly, over time, I’ve come to find her insufferable. Her posts often feature her mouth agape in the same tiny shape talking about nonsense things and I am the first to grant her that she… This is very much me.

luxyd: we live in a world where the practice of art, of making the endlessly boring endlessly fascinating, becomes exploited into a commercial profession - illustrator, designer, architect. each one a carbon copy of the other, manufactured in the same universally recognised four-year degrees. we live in…
Nick Miller: The Little Things . . . →
nickmiller: I read a piece in Cook’s Illustrated that encouraged—when preparing homemade broth for old-fashioned chicken soup—“hacking a whole bird into pieces” because “breaking the bones allows the rich marrow to permeate the broth.” In Hemingway’s own words: “I rewrote the ending to Farewell to…

charlyneyi: “I am tired of trying to force meaning to each and every day as it passes through me like a ghost-train. And these compartmentalized days are carts being pulled by god knows what. Sometimes the carts are empty and sometimes they are full to the brim. Meaning fluctuates, and when I feel it, I…

What Is Love?
benkling: benkling: A question that has plagued the mind of cavemen and conquistadors, plebes and presidents, kings and other kings. The obvious answer is “baby don’t hurt me / don’t hurt me / no more.” But let’s dig a little deeper. Read More This is old but once again relevant.

I cannot emphasise this enough
coffintreehill: If you are suffering from a crisis of confidence in your writing, be it from a submission rejection, a harsh critique, or nasty feedback, get back on that horse and start writing again. You will forget your self doubt in no time at all. Do not dwell on it. Get writing. Do it. Do it now.
