“Killed 99 bears”
a fact that if actually accomplished, should be put on a tombstone.

My favorite part is “We hope he has gone to rest.” What, like… they weren’t sure? Maybe, if ever the bear uprising should start again, he would rise from the ground to finish what he started and slay that 100th bear?Was this man so powerful they are concerned he might not have decided to rest at all and is simply biding his time?

The bears made that tombstone.
A warning, and a prayer.
That he really, truely stays down.

This is too badass not to reblog.

The Angels Have the Boggart


cumberbitches-with-bowties:

nerdsandgamersftw:

If a wizard watched Doctor Who and the Weeping Angels became their worst fear then they came across a Boggart and it changed into an Angel, and since whatever takes the image of an Angel becomes itself an Angel, would that bring Angels into existence in the Harry Potter universe?

Okay this fucked with me majorly

How do you know when an idea for a book is "The One"? The one that can make it all the way to a finished draft, the one you love enough to oursue despite its challenges, the one you can see yourself commiting all your time to, the one you know you won't tire of halfway through?

I have a rule for myself, and that is this: I can play around with as many ideas as I would like, but if I get to 20,000 words on a book, I have to finish it.

I’ve broken this rule a couple of times, but by and large, it works for me, and the reason is this: for me, the middle of a book is ALWAYS a lot of work. It is ALWAYS tiring. Starting a new book will ALWAYS be more appealing for me than doing the actual work of finishing the book I’m working on. Pretty much the only way I ever get books written is that, once I’ve “committed” (around 20,000 words), I don’t allow myself to start a new book until I’ve finished the old one.

All of which goes to say, if you’re having trouble finding “The One,” it might be because there isn’t one. Eventually, no matter how awesome the idea, finishing the book is going to be a lot of work, and it’s highly likely that at some point, you won’t want to do it, because starting a new book would be so much more fun. This is normal—at least for me.

Having said all of that, how do I know which of any number of ideas to pursue? I have a few different litmus tests. First, I look for ideas where I’m really excited not just about the premise of the book, but also about the plot. One of the biggest revelations I ever had as a writer is that premise and plot are not actually the same thing, and it is entirely possible to have an “idea” for a book without having a plot at all.

(For example, when I sat down to write RAISED BY WOLVES, I knew I wanted to write a book about a human girl who had been raised by werewolves. I loved the premise—but that is not, in fact, a plot. I had to actually figure out the conflict and stakes and what the book was about, beyond the idea).

For me, having a plot that I’m excited about is often tied to character. For example, for each of the books in the NATURALS series, I ask myself how I can make the case the team is investigating PERSONAL. How can I make it matter to the characters? How can I make it devastating to them?

For me, the ideas that are most worth pursuing are the ones in which I’m truly excited about the premise, the plot, AND the characters, and where all three interact in potentially interesting ways.

But even then, halfway through the book, I will still feel the siren call of shiny, new projects that are so much easier than finishing the one I am on…

I didn’t grow up reading comic books. I didn’t have too much interest in them. It’s been kinda coincidental that I’ve made so many comic book films.
