“you cannot separate the self from the relationship and you cannot separate the relationship from the work.
call it poison, or call it the muse.

Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers
As described by Selnick’s article:
1. You are a writer. You write letters or you journal or you write the beginning of a novel that goes absolutely no where. But you play with words and you do it often — how could you not be a writer?
2. You’re young. Or you’re old. Or you’re living in a hazy middle. No age is the…

I like this mostly because the comic artist knows how to properly spell Snider. As a fellow Snider, I appreciate that.
It’s also funny and relevant to my interests.
Free your lines and the rest will follow…or at least that’s the idea behind this notebook created by Marc Thomasset.

Unless that writer is Edgar Allan Poe, in which case you should get yourself measured for a nice box.
Snider tries his hand at creative nonfiction. Sort of.
This is only a draft, I haven’t edited this beyond checking for grammar. Some grammatical “errors” were left in place for rhetorical effect.
Snider wrote a thing and it is good.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT A SHORT STORY I WROTE FOR A CONTEST HAS BEEN ACCEPTED.
AFTER I EDIT IT IT’S GONNA BE FUCKING PUBLISHED.
I AM GONNA BE A PUBLISHED FUCKING AUTHOR.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
here’s some context. this is the episode of Arthur in which Neil Gaiman appears in falafel. you’re welcome.
For the curious.
Okay I’m at breakfast in a public cafeteria and I don’t need to have the impulse to cry right now.
This is perfect.
In keeping with my New Years resolution to write more, I made a thing! It’s primarily an experimentation with character voice and stream of consciousness.
So, I occasionally post links to writings here. In an effort to write more this year, I’m returning to my flagship character, Tabitha. Since she’s also one of my primary figures for experimenting with metafiction, having her own blog works out great for her.
So, it’s a thing. Also, links to writings where she appears are found there.

The Stilinskis? Single parent household with real consequences for things. I am trying not to let my heart break right now because of Stiles’ dad’s career consequences for Stiles’ various lawbreaking. And… just… Stiles feeds his dad vegetables and talks to him even as he lies to him and God just this family.
The McCalls? Oh God, Mama McCall has such a hard time. Single Mom of increasingly delinquent son who is missing an exam or failing a test every time she turns around, she has to handle seeing the condoms he leaves right out on his desk (objectively in plain view of the laundry hamper), all while being a great nurse and good mama lady to a lot of the teens.
Lydia’s family? Oh ho ho. They don’t give me warm and fuzzies like other families, but come on not every family is great.
Lahey? Oh God that scary fucking abusive bastard.
Just. Families are important and I feel Teen Wolf things. Just… families. And consequences.
