"Rules such as ‘Write what you know,’ and ‘Show, don’t tell,’ while doubtlessly grounded in good sense, can be ignored with impunity by any novelist nimble enough to get away with it. There is, in fact, only one rule in writing fiction: Whatever works, works."

"Writers are outsiders, and usually not by their own choosing. It’s why they’re writers. If they didn’t feel alienated from human experience, they wouldn’t feel so drawn to writing to make sense of their lives. It’s not the outsider’s facility for language that makes her a writer — many a student body president or homecoming queen can turn a phrase — but her ability to howl at the moon, on the page."

Karen Karbo writes for Powell’s Books’s blog about how much publishing has changed in the last 20-some years, but she also has a lot of great words about why people would want to deal with writing and publishing in the first place. Pair her smart essay with our own Nick Ripatrazone‘s piece “Practical Art: On Teaching the Business of Creative Writing.” (via millionsmillions)

Sometimes I will stop eating correctly and working out for long periods of time and it makes me miserable. The moment I start doing what I need to do for my health though, like working out at least 30 minutes a day and actually eating 3 meals a day, I immediately feel better. Like I sleep better and have more energy throughout the day. It makes me wonder why I keep stopping. Like, am I really that determined to be unhappy?

I don’t know if I should be more concerned that Disney keeps making movies based off attractions at their parks or the fact that I will keep watching said movies.

My favorite thing about looking at houses is finding things like this. Like how did they even find a bathtub that color and why did they pair it with that particular color of tile.
