1. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

  4. Qualities of an Attractive Personality

    onlinecounsellingcollege:

    Someone with an attractive personality:

    1. Is warm and friendly towards others.

    2. Is open and real

    3. Knows their own strengths and weaknesses - and neither boasts nor puts themselves down.

    4. Looks for the good in every situation, and is generally positive and optimistic.

    5. Doesn’t…

  5. I was wondering if you had any type of information on age progression with children as how would a four year old act what type of characteristics would he or she have

    writeworld:

    We are not a child psychology blog (or else we’re a stupendously bad child psychology blog). It is with heavy hearts, therefore, that we must admit that we do not have many (any) in-house resources for the developmental stages of tiny humans. We do, however, have links! 

    I highly recommend the book The Writer’s Guide to Character Traits: Includes Profiles of Human Behaviors and Personality Types by Linda N. Edelstein for basic profiles of children in various social and psychological situations from the need-to-know perspective of a writer. 

    Other than that, here are some resources for writing four(ish) year olds:

    And here are some general resources on writing children:

    Also, I bet there are some parents out there on Tumblr who may be willing resources for you, anon. If you’d like to be a resource for this anon on four year olds, please reply to this post. Please do not send us a message with your interest. (It’s much easier for us and for the anon and for everyone, really, if you just reply directly to the post.)

    If anyone else has any resources they think would go nicely with this list, please send them along!

    Thank you for… wondering…!

  8. We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.
    E.E. Cummings (via englishmajorinrepair)
  9. Treat all of your secondary characters like they think the book is about them.
