all the kids ever do these days are skip school, play video games, and smoke pot by the giant alien orb down at the old quarry.

think back though to when you were young and used to be the same thing. Sure back then it was the Giant Petrified Serpent In The Forest Clearing instead of the Giant Alien Orb Down At The Old Quarry, but same idea.

I love how she almost drops it until she smells it and that flashbulb memory hits.

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real … Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

Notice she says “who” it was and not “what” it was.

NaNo Prep: Giving Your Hero a Reason to Heal

lettersandlight:

NaNo Prep season is here! Whether you’re already planning your novel, searching for inspiration, or planning not to plan your novel, we’ll be providing insights, tips, and writer fuel to help you hit the ground running in November. Today, author Alan Sitomer shares how you can give your protagonists drive—and find healing:

To have a great story you must have a great hero. And to have a great hero, you must beat the crud out of them.

Totally serious. Great heroes, over the course of great stories will have been dragged through the mud physically, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically. Maybe not in that order, but it will have happened. Each hurt should be wrenching, vivid and altering (if not downright scarring).

Indeed, to become a successful writer you must love your hero and hurt your hero. Why? Because readers love it! Why do they love it? Because the more formidable the challenge, the deeper down the hero must reach in order to achieve their goal and heal.

Over the course of a good story, the reader will come to experience a couple primary hurts:

“Since I was eleven, I’ve been taking snapshots and videos of trains, each locomotive a different make, model, number, and bright paint scheme. In a sense, I collect them. I get close enough to feel the train’s wake blow against me. The power. I used to stake out stretches of track; now I follow them on a handheld scanner. But there are fertile spots for trainspotting all over. Off I-285, exit 13, on the west side of the city, four Norfolk Southern tracks run side by side carrying freight and passenger trains throughout the day. There’s no parking lot or viewing platform. Technically it’s trespassing—but that’s part of the fun. As told to Tony Rehagen” 20. Go trainspotting - Atlanta Magazine

Hermit Kitten, having arrived at her hermitage at age 43 in the year 51, is now 43 years old in the year 326. She assumes that this is a benefit of her life of quiet contemplation.

Flunkie updates us on the process of playing the Kittens Game in Hermit Mode. (With milestones and setbacks detailed throughout the thread.)
