orange_prose: She-devil from Echo Bazaar (Default)
This is a facebook note from forever ago:

I just spent about five minutes of my life reporting links to websites about how much a bunch of high school kids hate their ex-girlfriends. Each and every one promised nude pictures of the girls. There's no way these girls are eighteen, which makes this child pornography. I know they don't realize that, and I know it's silly, but they could get put away for the rest of their lives.

Man, my ex just told all his friends I was ugly.

I feel so bad for these girls. Not only do they probably have to go to school with boys this nasty and immature, that crap can now never be deleted.

And yes, I am enough of a goody-two-shoes to report them. Bunch a jerks. I don't feel guilty at all.

Okay, so, why The Snow Man matter to me, in 500 words or less. Or, at least, one hopes.

I think that you should not talk about things you don't know anything about. For instance, having never been homeless, talked to more than five homeless people, or done any research on the subject, I can't really talk about how they're just lazy. I do believe in "write what you know," but I think they make it too limiting. Women can write male characters, and men can write female characters. They can even do it well! But they should work at it, and think about it.

Anyway, what really got me on not assuming was two things in my life, which I will now put forward to you, in chronological order. this is a good time, I think )
