Survival Guide for the Thin-Skinned WriterIf you've ever thought of becoming a published writer, you must know the path to publication entails two things that go hand in had: submissions and rejections. If you're thick-skinned enough not to get depressed about rejections and analyze them with an impersonal, objective eye, all the better for you. But if you happen to be the sensitive type who makes a big deal out of the usual "your submission isn't a good fit for us", then the whole process might be very painful. It would be a good idea to toughen up and grow a thick skin, of course, but what do you do when you can't thicken your skin just by wishing it?Survival Guide for the Thin-Skinned Writer2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
As a this-skinned writer who had been suffering from depression even before she began submitting her stories to magazines, and who has received around 150 rejections so far, I've gathered a few ideas on how to deal with rejection when not being affected by it isn't an option.
1. Give yourself a little treat for every rejection you get. Personally, I prefer chocolate beca

At the meet n greet, after the Carver comment that Misha made, we all must've made astonished faces because Misha impatiently said, I think the love there is made pretty clear.
And I said, Sure, on Cas's part, its well established that he loves Dean, but i don't think it is on Dean's side. (yes, arguing just to get him to elaborate, I'm bad)
And he sorta rolled his eyes and said, C'mon, in the first few episodes, Dean's running around Purgatory, chopping off heads, Where's the angel, where's the angel, you know, the guy I'm in love with?
Us: I DON'T REMEMBER DEAN SAYING THAT!!
Misha: He might as well have. You know, we know what it is, what's going on. We don't talk about it. The actors don't, Jensen and I don't. But we're all perfectly aware of how the relationship is, the writers are co
MY BROTHER HELPED SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE!So yesterday afternoon, I was chillin' at home in my pyjamas, studying for this morning's exam (yes, an exam on a Saturday freaking terrorists) when all of a sudden, I heard terrible, terrible screaming and dogs barking like mad. We have a pretty noisy neighbourhood overall, and dogs often fight while their owners yell at them, but this was different.MY BROTHER HELPED SAVE SOMEONE'S LIFE!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I went outside. I couldn't see anything, but I heard the woman's screams very clearly. My mom insisted that if we dare check it out, we'd better do it in a car so that if dogs are involved, they won't attack us. We have a single-lane driveway and my brother's car was in the back, so I had to call him. He hopped into his car with his two friends to go see what he could see. I ran ahead to check past the corner (which was stupid of me, I admit) and when I saw two women and a little girl gathered on the driveway of a house down the street, I signalled to my brother to drive there. When I confirmed the coast was clear, I ran towards

Do me, and everyone else a favor.If you are involved in an over-rated, extremely popular fandom, do not talk shit about ANOTHER over-rated, extremely popular fandom.Do me, and everyone else a favor.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you like Kingdom Hearts, do not talk shit about Sonic.
If you like anime, do not talk shit about furries.
"But their fandom is over-rated, and I'm sick of seeing fanart of it!"
...And they, and everyone else, are sick of seeing yours, too.
So instead of sitting around baring your fangs at each other, wouldn't it make more sense to shake hands, and say, "I know what it's like to be hated, I know that feel bro" and be comrades?
...I've felt this way ever since Kingdom Hearts first became popular on here, and the Naruto fans wouldn't shut up about all the KH art on the front page, and the KH fans wouldn't stop whining about how over-popular Naruto was.
There is nothing more hypocritical than to hate on something that is disgustingly over-popular if you are enjoying someth

Frozen gets a pass for being the current movie.
But I've seen what you do in stores.
You have Rapunzel items and Frozen items and you kind of forgot that there was a movie in between them.
So I'm just letting you know in advance.

Soren was born on the Halloween of 2005, in Hogsmead, Scotland. He is a scorpio with Libra rising and moon in scorpio. As such he can have a very difficult, albeit rather charming, personality Soren´s delivery was very delicate (as was the entire pregancy)and he was a very fussy and difficult baby.
Soren has ADHD, and as a child needed several outlets such as toys, books, sports and creative games. As a result he developed quite an imaginative and resourceful mind. His parents joined efforts to provide him with an environment that could provide both intellectual stimulus as well as discipline have also given him quite an edge in his academic studies, even tough he can´t help but being all over the place all the time.
Soren was almost sorted into Ravenclaw.
Soren was taught Irish step dancing, piano and singing by his mother. He was part of the Hogwarts choir and was one of Flitwick´s most prized singers. As a child he sang in the contralto range. After

So, even I bought it! xD
Not sure if this is going to be Amazon's standard price, or if this is a sale, so you may want to get in on it!
Here's your link-a-roo: http://www.amazon.com/Wolf-Children-Blu-ray-DVD-Combo/dp/B00ENNUC9Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389568609&sr=8-1&keywords=wolf+children
I know a lot of you guys had talked about how much you loved this movie (before it was available for sale), so I thought you might want to also own a solid copy, and for an awesome price! ...Not to get all morals-y on you, but I mean, if you liked it, support it!
If you don't want a physical copy, but still want to go legit, you can also buy the digital copy for $8, which is pretty cheap although I like to buy my boxes (as you guys know).
