Sometimes I need to change directions, work on a different aspect, begin writing something completely off topic. Turn to journalling or blogging or poetry. Switch channels. Go for a walk. Switch genres. Focus on a different character. Read something. Talk to someone. Breathe.(less)

there are energies like crickets set up to hum inside us when we are young, they speak to us of rebellion and work us into our circumstances. some are fueled by attitudes and opinions that over time got shaped into beliefs. others don't give a damn whether it's day or night, whether we are tired or hungry, broke or nicely compensated. they whip up a storm in us which is honestly so compelling,...

“It's a god-eat-god world" - katya”
Katya Mills

“Now I happened to be there, in the chewy maelstrom of his life, by his side. He taught me how to live in this fucked up environment. East Oakland. How to deal with the people. Which ones to avoid. The new currency was trading out what you have for what you need. And then maybe trading up for what you want. The new time was not told by the sun. Light or no light, we lived as things happened. I would soon realize there was no other way.”
Katya Mills, Daughter of Darkness: Grand Theft Life

“poisoning the environment by the littering of consequence.”

“None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.”
Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat

“Das war ein seltsamer Raum, hergerichtet in einem einzigen Stile: bizarre Künstlerlaune. Etrurische und japanische Vasen, spanische Fächer und Dolche, chinesische Schirme und italienische Mandolinen, afrikanische Muschelhörner und kleine antike Statuen, bunte Rokkoko-Nippes und wächserne Madonnen, alte Kupferstiche und Arbeiten aus Meysenberg eigenem Pinsel, - das alles war im ganzen Raum auf Tischen, Etagèren, Konsolen und an den Wänden, welche überdies gleich dem Fußboden mit dicken orientalischen Teppichen und verblichenen gestickten Seidenstoffen bedeckt waren, in schreienden Zusammenstellungen arrangiert, welche gleichsam auf sich selbst mit Fingern wiesen.”
Thomas Mann

“Always mystify, torture, mislead, and surprise the audience as much as possible.”
