B. Washington Writes

Hi! My name is Brittany. I write fiction and poetry. I'll be documenting the editing process of my first novel, offering writing tips and prompts, and of course writing about books! (Psalm 45:1)

Having a really great idea

itsonlythefirstdraft:

…but forgetting it before you have the chance to write it down:

Screw stardust; be iron instead.
Be the element that creates stardust.
Be the element that causes the largest stars to explode.
Be the element that is strong enough to collapse an entire universe.”

Good morning, dear followers! ♥︎

Today is my favorite day of the week :D That’s right, today is Friday (and you know what that means) it’s time for the Friday Artsy Reminder!

((What are we holding on to, you ask? That there is good in this world. And it’s worth writing about c;))

*Ahem*

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN (and everyone else not included within that binary), I AM PROUD TO LET YOU ALL KNOW THAT TODAY IS A GREAT DAY TO ART. TODAY IS THE PERFECT DAY TO WRITE, TO DRAW, TO MAKE MUSIC— AND TO FEED YOUR IMAGINATION. WHATEVER IT IS THAT EXCITES YOU, WHATEVER IT IS THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY, TODAY IS THE PERFECT DAY TO DO JUST THAT.

I REPEAT.

  • WRITE.
  • DOODLE.
  • MAKE MUSIC.
  • MAKE. GOOD. ART.

((Oh yeah, also take selfies. Today is ALSO the perfect day to take silly selfies, like the ones above :D though I don’t have to do much, since my face is naturally silly))

Today I plan to do a whole bunch of writing, along with finalizing the new Writing Playlist that should be going up later today~ But, what about you, though? What are you all doing today?

PS: Don’t forget to tag me (maxkirin) or tweet at me (@MistreKirin) if you make something, I want to see your creations and I also want to see your selfies :D :D :D

Now go, my writerly friends, go and make good art! ★

“I am beautiful,especially when I’m angry.When there are no words,and I am my purest form of rage.They tell us that women should cry quietly,and birth their anger in secret.But I will rain over everything near,unforgivingly loud,my beauty is in my angry rebellion.”

unforgivingly loud,
