#WhatYouDontSee

I came across this article on the side entertainment edition of today's Times newspaper. I'm not able to find the article written by Anjali Muthanna online so I'll just quote all of it here because it basically explains everything about the hashtag. What it is: People using the hashtag #WhatYouDontSee to shed light on the not-so-well-known… Continue reading #WhatYouDontSee

Ice-Fingered Mists & Truffle-Topped Monasteries

Just.. Wow.
Especially the imagery in the first few paragraphs that talks about how it feels to write.

Untold Tales by a Whimsical Wallflower

I have a frenemy. Her name: Descriptive Writing. She is difficult to figure out, elusive and slippery, and sometimes I get the feeling that she despises me. At times she’s willing to have a heart-to-heart chat over coffee, only to rush off mid-sentence for no apparent reason. But then there are times when she bares her entire soul, crying out for a friend to listen, and I forget all about yesterday, when she mocked me as I stuttered, unable to summon one word to paint on my blank canvas.

But when I get her to talk, I savor the rush of adrenaline, the heart-pounding satisfaction, of being able to see the splashes of color begin to fill the white space, the serene and chilling sounds whizz, whirr, and whistle past my ears, the perfumes of my imagination drift into my nostrils.

And I get taken away to faraway lands, where seedy politicians…

17 Ways You Can Literally Create Amazing Content Without Actually Writing Any Words (For Beauty, Book, Writing Bloggers & More!)

Millionaire's Digest

1. Quote collection: No matter what subject your website covers, there’s a quote (or, better yet, a collection of quotes) out there that will inspire your readers. Search for “[your industry/topic] quotes” and be sure to provide proper attribution to any you wind up using on your site.

2. Image gallery: Instead of words, fill your blog posts with pictures. If your blog is personal in nature, create galleries based on your own experiences and observations. If it’s for a business website, try a “behind-the-scenes” gallery or a collection of product-related images.

3. Song round-up: Similarly, create a collection of songs that capture a mood or serve some purpose for your audience.

4. Link round-up: Link round-up is an easy way to pack your web properties full of content. In this particular iteration, gather 10 to 20 interesting industry links you’ve encountered online recently and share them with your audience in…

The Little Seed

theburstedbubble

seedling-fertile-ground-e1284564039611They told the seed he would never grow

All the bushes stood above him and said he would never show

But the seed believed and never cried when they mocked

He believed he would grow into a tree and they would be shocked

Little by little he inched his way above the dirt

But all the bushes said was it was a little growth spurt

They kept laughing and never believed

All the big things the little seed could achieve

Then one day the seed grew to where he touched the clouds

He looked and saw all the other trees standing tall and proud

He looked down at the bushes on the ground

And the tree now saw how his life turned around

He wondered why the bushes put mocking him over their needs

The other trees told him that the bushes forgot that they too were once seeds

What are Fandoms?

The Art Teens

This question was appropriately described by midnightrantersblog.

And that’s the beautiful thing about it all: it’s a community that only grows and connects people together. Like how I just had one of the best conversations ever with a person whom I only just talked to.

-midnightrantersblog

Sooner than you think, we also end up making friends because of these wonderful fandoms. That’s one of the many things I love about being a book-reader; it’s like a place where everyone literally always belongs.
