I was thinking the exact same thing as I was walking to the bus stop this afternoon. With the exact same caveat. ;)
But seriously, it would probably help for people to see just how much writing and erasing and cutting and pasting and tweaking happens. For just a paragraph of writing. ;)
There’s a Monty Python skit where people do this. I think it’s one of the radio plays?
Yup, here it is: Novel Writing
Well, I get this idea from my little brother and his friend! :D

I’m sorry but my favorite part is that you can hear someone on-set laughing at the end.

For azriona, because.
YKINMK, but I still love you, so it’s okay.
shoutout to the other 5 people on here other than me that don’t watch supernatural
I want you to know that I am so fucking proud of you!! Sosososoooo proud of you and fuck anyone who puts you down for being new!!! You decided to take on a new skill and to jump into the unknown! Art which is a skill that takes years and years to master.
You don’t decide to be a doctor one night and start doing heart surgery the next day. So why do people expect you to know how to be able to fucking paint the Mona Lisa the next day??!?!
If you’re wondering where this is coming from, it’s because of my disgust with fuck-your-fanart. A tumblr that harasses artists everyday, which the tumblr staff has decided to ignore and to let them to continue spreading hate.
To think that because of this hate, artists could get discouraged and put down their pencil/pen/paint brush ect. for life makes me sick. So I’m making this post in hopes that we can keep encouraging or re-encourage any artist who is doubting continuing because they’re afraid of the backlash that being a new artist might bring because of this blog, or any blog like it.
As much as I still have to grow as an artist, I can say that I am proud of how far I’ve come. Every last horrid piece that I’ve made in the past is important!! it was a stepping stone to get to where I am now! So in this post I’m going to show you where I started out and if you feel like joining and posting yours as well, please do! And like Jake the dog said “Sucking at something is the first step to becoming sorta good at something." See<3
and now years later!! (about 8 probably)
Feel free to add to this post! Or if you feel like making your own post, tag it with “#bad art is good art” so others can find it<3
And one last point I need to make, is that if anyone says that you should expect to have to take anyone’s bullshit because you posted your art on the internet, they are wrong~ Be strong and know that no one deserves to be harassed or put down for taking the time to learn!
Ethiopian girl guarded from gang rape & assault by three lions.
“The girl had been taken by seven men who wanted to force her to marry one of them. She was beaten repeatedly. Then the lions chased off her captors. The three lions guarded her for about half a day. They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest.”
Then, Stuart Williams (the local wildlife ‘expert’) suggests that perhaps the lions mistook the 12 year old girl’s cries for a lion cub. Which seems awfully silly, considering that lions are perfectly capable of telling apart the gazelles they eat from their own cubs, aren’t they?
if fuckin lions know that rape is bad then so should you
