Hi! I'm Leonard. I just graduated nursing school and am going to become a nurse. I like to write, read, listen to Rock N' Roll, Nerf, and yes, even watch cartoons (anime mostly), but don't get me wrong, I am quite the mature person. I believe in God and his message of Love. Welcome to the world that I live in :D
"She deserves better, you say. I say: You’re a goddamn coward. What she deserves is an actual person she can connect with. She deserves you, or me or the entire world; she deserves someone achingly real and honest. She deserves a human being equally raw to pursue her and love her and, perhaps, destroy her emotionally, but she deserves all that as well. She doesn’t deserve anyone’s sugary fairytale. She deserves to float freely, with you, or me, or the world, into the very depths of her own psychosynthesis. She deserves to explore the meaning of the word "intimacy", with someone beside her that will care regardless. She fucking deserves all of it. So, pluck up the courage and be with her or leave her in peace but don’t you dare "sell" her your own "inadequacy" as a lie so that, again, you manage to comfort your conscience and eventually come to feel that you love her exactly because you’re letting her go. Because, darling, that’s bullshit. That’s only your own little self-created lie laying behind a much bigger lie; it’s not even properly concealed within itself, you fucking idiot."
Have you guys heard about this!? It’s new this year and it sounds so cool!
So basically this is how it goes:
- A bunch of famous authors will be sharing their stories on Twitter from March 12 to the 16th, using the platform as a unique medium to tell their stories.
- But what’s even more awesome is that between now and February 5th, anyone can apply to be featured in a showcase alongside the authors.
- Even if you don’t want to apply to be featured, you can still participate during that week by tagging your story tweets #TwitterFiction.
I think it’s going to be SO cool to see how people use Twitter to tell their stories (the main page, linked above, is super well designed and has a bunch of different suggestions for ways you can creatively use Twitter to share your stories).
And it’s sponsored by Random Penguin, which is also really cool… I feel like big publishers are known for having their heads stuck in the sand when it comes to changing technology and methods of story consumption, so it’s good to see them doing something new and progressive!
I’ll keep posting about this as it approaches… maybe we can create an index of yeah writers who are participating or something! I’ll keep brainstorming (and if anyone else has an ideas, let me know).
I might do this
