does the sweater ever go into a dryer because that sounds really comfy
Nah, you have to dry it flat so it’s damp for a really long time, kinda gross and staticy and sticky and when it drys it’s really stiff and stale smelling
It’s a pretty raw deal all things considered
I’m not even really sure what I mean but I’ve been feeling very not-girl lately
I have a friend who is an author and who I believe is INTP (could be INFP, but the writing issues are the same). Here’s some things that work for him:
1) He doesn’t write his ideas for novels down… if an idea is going to work for him at that length, it needs to be strong enough to stay in mind by itself.
2) He starts off writing in order to explore a particular idea that fascinates him and getting to the bottom of it/creating an explanation for it is what keeps him interested all the way through writing it. Often that original idea is not even evident to anyone but him by the end of it, but the story has been constructed around that seed.
3) He doesn’t generally limit himself to one genre per book - while always keeping people’s situations and reactions realistic, he unapologetically goes wherever is needed to tell the story best.
4) He doesn’t plan unless he’s desperate. He has a vague idea of where he’s intending to finish up but he needs to maintain the mystery in himself while he’s writing because once he knows what’s going to happen, how the different threads of his stories are going to come together, he starts losing interest. People always comment on how tightly-plotted his books are when in fact they just kind of happen to work out that way if he trusts where his intuition takes him and his ability to fit the pieces together when needed.
5) On perfectionism: “You can be perfectly dead - with everything else, you have to compromise. And don’t get wrapped up in corrections during the process because they drag you away from the thrust… and it’s that (and keeping it going) that’ll get you through to the end. When you’ve finished, you can always go back and fix it. But you have to have a whole thing to fix.”
6) On doubt about the worth of your work: “You just have to say what you want to say. It’s the reader’s job to make judgements on it. When you’re immersed in writing you’re the very last person who’s able to make a call on the worth of what you’re doing. Just write it, get it done, and then make it better. Then hand it on to others. Then start the next one.”
GOES TO LISTEN IMMEDIATELY, WHATEVER I’M JUST GOING TO LISTEN TO THE WHOLE SOUNDTRACK NEVERMIND
/sings along to the bass line of the title track
/Loudly imitates orchestra along with you
the Better than New track on the Pacific Rim soundtrack has taken to making me burst into tears b/c it has the exact emotion for when Raleigh sees Guillermo Danger again for the first time after his exile
the thing is so short, but it soooooooooo good
