poof, boing!

Ask away!   Submitmarine   hard work and guts

Those things that are like “CREATE ART NOW. NO EXCUSES. JUST DO IT.” You know, those are great! They’ve encouraged me, they’ve encouraged countless others, they often make really neat graphics. People should make stuff. People should always make stuff. But I’d like to add not a dissenting voice, but another voice, to that whole deal:

Create art! But, you know, have excuses, sometimes. If for some reason you’re not ready, or you’re genuinely not able, you’re ill, hell, you’re afraid (because fear is not a thing that can disappear miraculously with the right encouragement), or you have a job that takes up all of your time, it’s painful to the point where it’s more of a harm than a joy, loans to pay off, a family you need to focus on, or whatever, you can still create art. You don’t have to do it RIGHT NOW. And doing it later won’t make it less meaningful or brave or important when you do.

Sometimes you go through your tumblr likes way way way back, and it serves to remind you, “I know a ton of pretty fucking fantastic and weird and delightful and interesting people”.

#i've watched this seven times  #steven universe 

I’m re-reading Fire right now (or more accurately, reading all the way to the end for the first time), and I’ve been thinking about something Cashore does in these books that writers too rarely think to do, especially in adventure-driven plots - she creates narratives in the spaces between misfortune and tragedy and pain for her characters to live in. Fire could easily be a character whose life doesn’t start until she gets to King’s City, entirely miserable, trapped person biding her time until she can undergoing her big realization, but she isn’t. One of the first things we find out about Katsa, a thing that happens before we even meet her, is that she formed the council of her own volition. Bitterblue learns to be queen slowly, messily. The way romance is treated as not incidental, but part of a larger and more complicated whole. You don’t get a sense that Cashore is saying “these are wasted years”. Things keep happening. Lives move in incremental ways that are just as important as the big plot resolutions or the ending of wars. 

Just something I really, really love. Something I think is really important, especially in books for younger readers and ones that are so explicitly about personal and national abuse and trauma. What a great series.
