Currently, I use a stream of consciousness method, where I write down on a separate document some brainstorming ideas, fears and frustrations, questions about my story and essays, and adding to the story's timeline.

But the best time-tested method has always been curl up in a ball, cry, and stuff my face with chocolate while music is blasting in my ears until an a-ha moment comes.(less)
Ives Phillips Creating worlds and people, and having a voice in the pages whereas it is hard for me to be vocal in real life.

Why I Sued Taylor Swift by Russell Greer
"Unintentionally hilarious. I'd score this much higher for the entertainment value if it was satire. Unfortunately, it is not. The author has no understanding of the law, despite being a trained paralegal. Russell Greer is time and time again set b..." Read more of this review »

“Write. Write Often. Write Now.”
Ives Phillips, Well, This Is Stupid: A Book of Poems Written by a Sleepless Writer

“But I don't want to lose my guts answered Pumpkin ”
Jodi Lynn Anderson, May Bird and the Ever After
tags: humor

“The state is controlling my destiny and my penis.”
Russell Greer, Why I'm Making It Legal for Your 18 Year Old Daughter to Get In Bed with a Complete Stranger for Only 500 Bucks: A Short Essay from a Pro Se Litigant who is Challenging the Utah Brothel Bans

“The liberal idea of tolerance is more and more a kind of intolerance. What it means is 'Leave me alone; don't harass me; I'm intolerant towards your over-proximity.”
Slavoj Žižek

“If your flirting strategy is indistinguishable from harassment, it's not everyone else that's the problem.”
John Scalzi

“When a stranger on the street makes a sexual comment, he is making a private assessment of me public. And though I’ve never been seriously worried that I would be attacked, it does make me feel unguarded, unprotected.

Regardless of his motive, the stranger on the street makes an assumption based on my physique: He presumes I might be receptive to his unpoetic, unsolicited comments. (Would he allow a friend to say “Nice tits” to his mother? His sister? His daughter?) And although I should know better, I, too, equate my body with my soul and the result, at least sometimes, is a deep shame of both.

Rape is a thousand times worse: The ultimate theft of self-control, it often leads to a breakdown in the victim’s sense of self-worth. Girls who are molested, for instance, often go on to engage in risky behavior—having intercourse at an early age, not using contraception, smoking, drinking, and doing drugs. This behavior, it seems to me, is at least in part because their self-perception as autonomous, worthy human beings in control of their environment has been taken from them.”
