why is it always the woman who has to see past the beast in the man? why does she always have to clean his wounds, even after he has damaged her beyond repair? why is it always the man who is worthy of forgiveness for being a monster?
I want to see the beast in the beauty.
the half smile, half snarl. the unapologetic anger. I would like to see the man forgive the monster. to see her, blood and all, and love her anyway.

I find it really strange that when you’re in a long distance friendship or relationship all you want to do is see that person and being around them is the biggest most wonderful deal but there are people who interact with them
all the time, on the street and in the classroom and in the shops and it always makes me jealous because you want to be with this person so much and for everyone else they’re nothing special but for you they’re everything special

THE WAY THE PAGAN GODS ARE HALF REMEMBERED HERE

FIRE POEM, Berlin || Robert Montgomery

We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.

✎ Anonymous: so you're one of my favourite writers and i wanted to ask you how you get over writer's block ?? //

That’s incredibly sweet thank you! I wish I had any idea how to get over writer’s block, I’ve got a huge case of it right now.

  • I made a list of a few writing prompts a while ago if you’re looking for ideas, alternately check out Rachel McKibbens’ blog because hers are sick.
  • I’d also try writing nonstop, as in without pausing, and slogging through a bunch of “golly gee what do I write rn” sentences until your subconscious runs fast enough to spit out some lines that intrigue you.
  • When I’m seriously like "why do I do this" I’ll consume some sort of media (books and movies, really) with a writer in it. It cracks me up seeing a writer write a writer. We either glorify ourselves or make fun of ourselves. Sometimes seeing that activity/experience/~identity~ represented can actually make me bear down and write. (Or just buy an expensive coat or something, depending on what kind of bad movie I just watched.)
  • Or if someone’s recced you a book or a literary journal lately, pick it up. Sometimes I think we forget that writers read, and it’s honestly just as important as writing.
  • If a fancier prompt isn’t working for you, I usually start my more journally things by titling a page "writing stuff out of my skin" or "what my head looks like"— the immediacy of a current feeling, pressure, emotion is helpful to me.

To be honest, from my brief and tumultuous experience with Writing, most of getting over writer’s block is just having the muscle to pull through it and write even though you’re not feeling it. Or, if you’re really not feeling it, just take a break, take off the pressure to write, do something else you love doing and just work on getting yourself happy/inspired/energetic, recharge yourself until you get excited to make something again.

growing under her skin
and all they had wanted
was to finally feel the sun.
