Anonymous said: Hey! I have read that while writing it is better to show not tell. I think I have trouble finding different ways to describe people's feelings other then outright stating it (for example, they were feeling happy). I think that maybe I feel like readers won't understand the emotion I am trying to portray. So if you have any tips or links to anything to help with this that would be greatly appreciated :) Love your blog by the way!

writing-questions-answered:

Humans generally come equipped with the ability to read various signals and understand their meaning. If someone is frowning, I know that they’re sad. If someone is gritting their teeth, clenching their fists, and turning red, I know that they’re probably angry. If they’re smiling, laughing, and their body language is open, I can assume they’re probably happy. As writers, it behooves us to learn what all of these signals are so that we can write them into our stories. Sometimes it’s just a matter of thinking about what someone looks like when they’re feeling a particular emotion. But if you need more help, I highly recommend The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becky Puglisi. You can find sample entries on their old web site here.

THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

Always reblog. Once i have money again, I’m buying a pair.

Buying these. If you subscribe to their newsletter, you get a $10 off coupon. 

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL INNOVATION FOR UNDERWEAR. I was actually thinking the other day “Why isn’t there underwear that can absorb period blood without ruining it? Because mother nature can be such a poop head and give you your period early!!!!

Capone prided himself as a man with style. If he ever killed someone himself, or one of his henchmen killed an important person, hundreds of dollars worth of flowers was sent to the funeral. In one fight between Capone’s men and another gang, an innocent woman was shot, not fatally, and required hospital treatment. Capone personally paid for all the hospital fees. He also would pay for all children’s hospital bills when he visited.

Biggest Nope I’ve Seen To Date

"Did you just catch that?"

I like that the batter actually looks impressed

I see this come across my dash one every three months or so and it still amazes me.

Honestly the best part is the total man-crush look the batter is giving him right there.
