I am suffering from severe YA. Just when I think it has completely left, it returns with a vengeance.

~ Lourdes

made some quote images to have on hand while I’m working. here’s one. happy writing.

Certain words perpetually rot inside of me and refuse to come out.
Virginia Woolf, from Selected Diaries (via violentwavesofemotion)

(via mindymcginnis)

The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.

Everyone calm down, this was posted on autostraddle first. So it’s  got queer cred! But it just makes me feel bad about myself. Not my sexuality, but that I can’t afford to buy $44 v-neck t-shirt.

where else can you go from reading about diversity in YA, to an in-depth analysis a hot dog gif?

Embracing the gif making INSANITY while I take a break from writing.
