quote 2015-09-09 21:01
One of the most basic assumptions that an audience makes is that the person who created the entertainment they’re about to enjoy is going to treat them fairly. They assume that everything they witness has a point, and is necessary to the story. Audiences are prepared to accept small exceptions to this rule – writers are allowed a few red herrings and MacGuffins – but break it in a major way and they’re going to feel cheated...

The secret storytelling truth we must mainline:

Be aware of the contract between you and your audience. Everything that happens must happen for a reason, and the more of a big deal you make of an event, the bigger the pay off must be.

I suggest every author who sees this read the entire article.

Reading progress update: I've read 24%.
How to Be a Woman - Caitlin Moran

On feminism:

 

These days, however, I am much calmer-- since I realized that it's technically impossible for a woman to argue against feminism. Without feminism, you wouldn't be allowed to have a debate on woman's place in society. You'd be too busy giving birth on the kitchen floor--biting down on a wooden spoon, so as not to disturb the men's card game-- before going back to hoeing the rutabega field....The more women argue, loudly, against feminism, the more they prove it exists and that they enjoy its hard-won privileges.

Thou Shalt Not Dump the Skater Dude and Other Commandments I Have Broken - Rosemary Graham

"I'm not going to lie and pretend I don't know I'm pretty.

 

I'm pretty.

 

There. I said it. And not because I'm conceited either. I just hate it when pretty girls pretend they don't know it.

 

It's bad form. If the gene pool has been nice to you, you should own up to it. Pretending you don't know is stupid."

My thoughts on the whole Goodreads Policy controversy

You guys are going to have to bear with me another day on the tutorials, because this took a lot out of me, but here are my thoughts. YMMV.

Preach or Perish
Preach or Perish - Donald Howard Ed Preach or Perish - Donald Howard Ed This is a good book to promote thinking about preaching's priority. It will remind preachers and listeners. I think it could be helpful for a group in a church to read some of the chapters then discuss how their congregation is going.
