Even the greatest writers can learn new things about storytelling, about writing, about the world in which we peddle our salacious word-born wares. You can always up your game. Seek opportunities to do so. Oh! And by the way, any of those writers who tout that line: “You can’t teach someone to be a writer, you either are a writer or you aren’t” are high on their own stench and just want to make themselves feel better. What kind of fucked-in-the-head lesson is that? You’re born a writer or you’re not? We’re beholden to some kind of creative caste system? It’s in our blood, like vampirism or syphilis? You can be taught. And you can teach yourself.
Conceal… Don’t feel…
So wait does this mean that if we took away the whole being able to produce ice thing. This movie might have been about depression?
Disney has come out and said it’s about anxiety and depression so… yeah
the writers literally said that Elsa is a metaphor for depression
“There are a couple of things I want to impart to ladies who want to be in comedy: One, you don’t have to be weird or be quirky to get your job done. And two, comedy skill is not sexually transmittable. You do not have to sleep with a comedian to learn what you’re doing. Male comedians will not like that advice, but it is the truth.” - Tina Fey
Yes. As someone who used to do comedy in college, it was so difficult to recruit girls to even audition. I can’t tell you how many times I heard “oh, I’m not funny and weird.” The two are not conjoined!
And also, thanks for insulting me to my face.
The more you read, the less apt you are to make a fool of yourself with your pen or word processor.
okay okay but hear me out: wizarding tattoos
tattoos of cats that wind around your ankles, birds that fly across your back when you move, a wand that moves when you move your own wand, a map on the back of your hand that shows your current location
the possibilities are endless
More and more I’m allowed the benefit of corrupting the minds of creative writing students out there in the world, which is awesome for me, and probably disturbing for them. Regardless…
Yes! Yes to all of this!
