I bought my friend an elephant for their room.

They said “Thank you.”

I said “Don’t mention it.”

It’s just Hey Monday#pascalcampionartMy computer is all messed up ( again).. When my computer is acting up like this, I makes it very interesting for me to come up with anything new..or anything at all..I’m pretty surprised I was able to do something at all…even if it’s a type of image I’ve done before. Ha.. life.. what would we do without your funny twists and turns, hu?

brilliant, never before seen fantasy ideas!!!!

  • allegories for racism using white people and some race of mythical creatures who are all also white people
  • allegories for lgbt*qia identities using someone being cursed or a werewolf and they are still a cishet the whole time
  • allegories for issues people deal with using no one except cishet white people

when your society marginalizes you so much that even stories about your marginalization….marginalize you

smh

"His grandmother and I are raising him. I worry about putting him into the public school system. I was a teacher for many years. I’ve seen so much confidence destroyed by the standardized system. Every human is born with natural curiosity. I’ve never seen a child who wasn’t inspired. But once you force someone to do anything, the inspired person is killed. I dropped out of school myself in 7th grade. So I know. I taught a GED course for years, so I’ve seen the end results over and over. I’ve seen so many kids who have complexes and insecurities because they were forced to do something they weren’t ready to do, and then they were blamed when they weren’t able to do it. What we call ‘education’ today is not organic. You can’t take something as complex as the human mind, compartmentalize it, and regiment its development so strictly."

hello. my name is alice oseman. i’m 19.

if you’ve followed me for a few years, which some of you have, since i was like 15/16, you’ll know that i’ve wanted to be a published author for quite a while.

you’ll also know that i wasn’t a very happy person when i was at school. i hated school a lot. A LOT. it got to the point where there was only one thing i really enjoyed about my life. and that was writing this book. Solitaire.

i would think about it all of the time. i would get homework done at school so i could write at home. i would spend entire weekends tucked up in bed, writing, and i’d go to school on four hours of sleep because i’d stayed up writing. i didn’t want anybody to read it. i wasn’t writing it for anyone else. it was just for me. in a life that seemed so out of my hands, this book and this story and these characters were things that depended entirely on me. it made me feel like i was worth something.

it wasn’t until i’d finished and edited it that i even considered that other people might enjoy it too. that’s when the determination hit, i guess. this book was completely and totally an outlet - i wrote it in anger and in sadness and in the desperate hope that life could be less boring than it was proving to be. so i finished it and decided - i am not putting up with any of this shit anymore. i am so fucking done. the only thing that i ever want to be is a writer. it is the only thing that makes me happy. i’d better get on and do something.

now i have a book in my hands. an actual book printed by a major publisher.

it’s going to be in waterstones and other bookshops. it’s going to be in the UK and america and australia and france and brazil and a heap of other countries. people are going to read and enjoy the story that i wrote because i didn’t know what else to do to make myself happier.

i believe i am possibly one of the luckiest people in the world

and i hope that my book, and the books that i will write in the future, will bring something to people’s lives, as Solitaire brought something to mine

amazon / goodreads / waterstones

this will be the only time i reblog this until publication day probably but i just wanted to say that i’m literally amazed at how many notes this has gotten and how many followers i’ve gained over the last 24 hours and thank you so much to everyone who’s sent me such kind and lovely messages - it means the absolute world to me to spread my love for writing and hopefully persuade young writers that age should never be something to hold you back and it is possible to be successful in writing, even if you don’t know anyone in publishing or have any money. thank you EVERYONE i am just so amazed and grateful, and if you get to read the book, i really really really hope that you enjoy it!

I’m looking forward to reading it!
