afro-dominicano:

thanks to gentrification, they’re starting to push out / evict tenants who can’t pay the steeping rent prices, myself included. so I made this gofundme in hopes to save something for the eventual eviction or just to keep up with rent if we don’t get evicted. any contribution would help, thank you. pls boost if you can.

30 Day Autobiography Challenge

Day 1: A story about your birth or early childhood

“You want to know someone? Heart, mind, and soul? Ask him to tell you about when he was born. What you get won’t be the truth: it will be a story. And nothing is more telling than a story.”

-Diane Setterfield

A quick tip for writers out there, who use Microsoft Word:

lookatthewords:

miss-evening:

Change the background colour of the pages to a mint green shade.

It is said that green is a calming colour, however, the main reason why I like this, is because I can write for a much longer period of time now, as a white background I used before made my eyes dry and exhausted after just a few hours of working.

It is basically much more soft and careful to the eyes. I can’t precisely explain why that is. I think it’s that by making a pinch softer contrast of the text and the background, your eyes does not get exposed to as much light.

Just make sure to not make the background too dark, or else your eyes will get exhausted due to over-fixating the lack of contrast between text and background.

And maybe you find a nice pastel/light background shade that fits you; give it a try.

Different things work out and fits for different people. And I just felt like sharing this.

Here’s the shade numbers I used to get my preferred colour:

Thanks for reading.

Yes yes. Also, f.lux is a free program good for typing at night and for long periods of time too!

The 30-Day Autobiography Challenge

Hey, guys! I started a writing challenge!

If you follow along to the Facebook group, you’ll find a list of prompts for thirty days of writing about yourself, your past, your history, your dreams and your goals. Feel free to join and write alongside other participants!

We’re also starting the challenge tomorrow, September 1st — but feel free to hop in at any time.

What are some comics you recommend that feature lesbians? I need some more lady lovin' reading material!

kateordie:

I am by no means an expert, but here are some I’ve enjoyed:

- Fun Home

- Dykes to Watch Out For

- Lumberjanes

- Blue is the Warmest Colour (Disclaimer: I haven’t read this, but I want to.)

- Dar (Although this comic is more about conflict of identity, I still really love and always recommend it, especially to people who lean more towards “queer” than anything else.)

- Batwoman: Elegy

- Young Avengers (There are so many queer characters in Young Avengers, especially in the newest run. Although there isn’t much on-panel lady-love, Miss America Chavez is a badass hero and I would kill to write her.)

- Sailor Moon

- Buffy

- Y: The Last Man

If you’re looking for some more… Ahem, ADULT material, I recommend the Smut Peddler books and Small Favors, if you can get your hands on it. 

Also, The Pride:

I had a dream last night that I was watching the two-part Adventure Time series finale. Gotta post it really quickly, before I forget.

The Lich was back and rather than helping defeat him, Finn and Jake agreed to help him destroy the universe — but not REALLY, just convince the Lich that the universe is destroyed and cast him magically into some void so that he’ll go back into hibernation mode (I think the Lich was rendered incapable of physically killing someone himself).

That was the first half. In the second half Finn travels to Ooo centuries in the future to fight alongside a resistance force against the Lich and his new army of minor liches and ghouls. Some of the people he fights alongside look familiar — it turns out they’re Jake’s descendants.

Also there were sixteen different pasta salads that everyone was eating — four kinds of pasta and four kinds of sauce in all combination. I can’t remember why but apparently it was very important.
