Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.

Big Box O'Links

The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity — Yeats


William Roper: “So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!”

Sir Thomas More: “Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?”

William Roper: “Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!”

Sir Thomas More: “Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!”

― Robert Bolt, A Man for All Seasons


You're not a gardener, are you? So perhaps you don't know that once a garden is established, much of good gardening is about removal rather than planting, honing what you have to produce a pleasing effect, sacrificing the particular for the good of the whole. Gardening is a creative pastime, but the result is always a work in progress; unlike a painting or a piece of music a garden is never fixed in time.

― Rosalie Parker - In The Garden

The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

― William Saroyan

Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

Playing with AI, Derpy, and old story ideas · 12:58pm Last Tuesday

There are still GPT apps floating around here and there. One popped up while I was reading a thread somewhere and I thought, hey, why not plug one of my never-written idea prompts into it just to see what might happen.

I both do and do not feel replaced, but at least I got a giggle out of it.

Twilight and Princess De Raptura attempt to regain control of the moon. It shouldn't be hard. All they have to do is dance with it.

Make an alt!

note: do not make an alt

It's a pity I can't follow you twice.

It's a first for me to get one of my stories on a shelf called something like thoughtful. Makes me feel good though, thanks for checking out Apple preserves.
