openminds-openeyes said: I don't have a question, just a very humble thank you. I just saw your post explaining Obama's recent executive order prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the workplace, and immediately teared up. Hi, I'm Janessa. I'm 17, and I'm lesbian. Sometimes the way our society orients around the topic of homosexuality is a bit frightening. It feels like something a high schooler shouldn't have to deal with. But this order gives me strength. So thank you, for this huge leap.

Thank you for having the courage to share your story! The President and everyone in his Administration is fighting for you every day. Stay strong!

Guardians of the Galaxy, in theaters Aug. 1, is Marvel’s big leap away from its more established superhero properties into the depths of outer space. It’s also the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to have a woman as a credited writer — but getting there wasn’t exactly easy.

totallyalero said: How did you turn a short story into a novel? To me, it seems like an impossible thing to do. To pick up a pen and write a short story is one thing--but to pick up a pen and turn a short story into a full-length piece of work? How did you do it? How do you find the bravery to do that?

chuckpalahniuk:

Consider that a short story typically shows one event.  You might be able to extrapolate the preceding and seceding events from the original story.  Or the story can eventually act as a flashback within a longer piece.  Or, check out the original story version of “Story of My Life” published in Esquire.  Then, read the novel and you’ll see how extra details were added to build the story into the novel.

July 27th 1963: Garrett Morgan dies

On this day in 1963 the prominent African-American inventor Garrett Morgan died in Cleveland aged 86. Born in Kentucky in 1877 the seventh of eleven children and with only an elementary school education, Morgan went on to develop patents for several inventions. His patents included: a new sewing machine (his first job was as a sewing-machine mechanic); an improved traffic signal (he was the first black man in Cleveland to own a car); a hair-strengthening product; and a breathing device. His model of a breathing device, initially meant to help firefighters, went on to be used as the basis for gas masks in World War One. The hair-strengthening product he invented allowed him to start a business which sold these products to African-Americans - the G.A Morgan Hair Refining Company - which had great financial success. However, Morgan faced considerable racial prejudice throughout his career. Some refused to purchase his devices, which led Morgan to hire a white actor to pose as ‘the inventor’ when showcasing some of his inventions. After his heroism during the Cleveland Tunnel Explosion, when Morgan and his brother put on breathing devices and helped save some of the trapped workers, people realised he was African-American and sales of his products dropped. However after his patent of the traffic signal, which he sold to General Electric for $40,000 and provided the basis for the modern signal, he was honoured and respected by many in the business community. Garrett Morgan, who tirelessly supported the African-American community and whose inventions and personal heroism improved countless lives, died on July 27th 1963 in Cleveland.

"With a partial manuscript, I think it’s especially important for an editor to say what he’s enjoying. For a novelist to be told, midstream, what he’s doing right can actually influence the unwritten parts of a novel in a positive way—praise helps a writer know what’s good about what he’s written, what’s interesting and exciting, and what to work for in writing the conclusion. Knowing the strong points focuses one’s attention on what’s strong, and makes it easier to move from strength to strength. Whereas criticism at the wrong time, even if it’s legitimate criticism, can be seriously damaging and make the writer lose faith in what he’s doing. It’s the timing that’s all-important."

Donna Tartt, author of The Goldfinch, in conversation with her editor Michael Pietsch (via blairthornburgh)
