DUDE. You are SO fucking ANGRY that this CHICK doesn’t want to SCREW you. ALSO you use a LOT of capslock. Like, a lot.
This thing is all over the place. BUT I feel like it could be FUN to see the conversation that PROMPTed this post. If writing ABOUT that interaction TICKLES your fancy, please post a link in the comments below!
RANDOM CAPS LOCK ‘CAUSE WHY THE FUCK NOT?!
Hello WordPress community and people of the internet! I am working on a short story, and could use some help writing about the worst night out ever.
Please, share your stories – your personal stories, or a friend’s, or perhaps crazy things you’ve read on the internet. Right now, my scene is a little dull, so I’m looking for inspiration to make it better.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post; I hope to read your comments soon!
‘Why should I believe any of this?’
It happens that fast..
I say, because I think I like you.
Marla says, ‘Not love?’
This is a cheesy enough moment, I say. Don’t push it.
Chuck Palahniuk does a great job of writing about subject matter in a way that remains interesting, and never gets too sappy. Some might argue he occasionally goes too far in the other direction (I do not agree with this assessment, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion).
I just finished Fight Club, including the Afterword in my version, and find it interesting that the author considers this book a love story. There are many elements to Fight Club, but if I had to write a paper about themes/meanings/etc. of the novel afterward, I never would have thought to write that it is a romance. Actually, I still wouldn’t, even now that I know it is his intention.
He also mentions that he essentially considers Fight Club a re-write of The Great Gatsby. Also interesting, because I don’t know that I would classify The Great Gatsby as primarily a love story, either.
Thoughts? What do you think of this quote? What do you think of Fight Club (book or movie)?
I recently stumbled across this short, brief interview with children’s horror writer R.L. Stine. These are two excerpts from the interview I want to keep/remember:
When you write, for example, about a hideous mask that the heroine can’t take off, are you writing about some deeper theme?
I didn’t really think of that. When my son was little, he was trying on a green Frankenstein mask and he was pulling it down over his face and he couldn’t get it off. And he was tugging, tugging. I thought, “What a great idea for a story.” I should’ve helped him. I wasn’t a good parent that day.
I love his commentary, “I wasn’t a good parent that day.” We all have those moments.
What do kids say when they write to you?
That’s one of the best parts of writing for kids. I get wonderful mail, tons and tons. Here’s a couple classic letters:
“Dear R.L. Stine, I really love your books but can you answer one question, why don’t the endings make any sense?”
“Dear R.L. Stine, I’m huge fan of your books. Your friends and family are proud of you, no matter what anybody says.”
“Dear R.L. Stine, I’ve read 40 of your books and I think they’re really boring.”
That’s my favorite.
Kids are hilarious.
