We won’t bring about peace in the world merely by praying for it; we have to take steps to tackle the violence and corruption that disrupt peace. We can’t expect change if we don’t take action.— Dalai Lama (@DalaiLama) February 25, 2019
Something gaming has taught me about fiction is that fight scenes are not inherently interesting. They're a delivery mechanism, and need additional ingredients to be memorable: a cool setting, strong personalities/dialogue, weird monsters, unusual magic, or—best of all—emotion.— James L. Sutter (@jameslsutter) February 26, 2019
This is your reminder that you can only move forward if you do THE SCARY THING. Maybe it's writing the book, putting that webcomic online, reaching out to a pro, querying, or dropping art off with an editor at a con. Everything you want lies on the other side of OMG EEK.— Delilah S. Dawson (@DelilahSDawson) February 26, 2019
it’s weird how we use words like “faces backlash” and “stirs controversy” and “ignites debates” over patently stupid shit being said and done. A more honest headline would be “person says shitty thing, is shitty.”— Sam Sykes (@SamSykesSwears) February 24, 2019
The greatest lie ever told is that cauliflower is an acceptable substitute for rice or potatoes.— Trey Lawson (@T_Lawson) February 25, 2019

-walk like you own it. show up uninvited.

-swords or poison, it's up to you
-you can drink whatever you want in a skull goblet
-there's a curse for every occasion
people pretending that fun stories and deep, meaningful stories are mutually exclusive are conveniently forgetting that, for people to pay attention to your story long enough to get meaning out of it, they need to have fun, first.— Sam Sykes (@SamSykesSwears) February 23, 2019
When working out D&D backgrounds, I try to approach them the way I do character backgrounds in fiction: whatever I can see offering the most opportunities for a flat "...what," I do that.— Seanan McGuire (@seananmcguire) February 24, 2019
you don't need drugs to be cool, friends, when you can read fantasy novels and get "fucked up" on imagination— Sam Sykes (@SamSykesSwears) February 23, 2019
WRITER FRIEND: I'm stuck on this plot point— Paul Krueger (@NotLikeFreddy) February 23, 2019

WRITER FRIEND: *gives me a summary*
WRITER FRIEND: OH SHIT I JUST FIGURED OUT EVERYTHING
Sometimes when I am in the mood to want to go back and change comics history, I would take Buscema off of the b-team Avengers, and see him change Superman into a guy you never wanted to cross.— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) February 21, 2019
Because that would have been cool af.
A lot of people ask what the difference is between a mystery and a thriller:— Jason Pinter (@jasonpinter) February 20, 2019
—A mystery is what my toddler daughter is putting in her mouth.
—A thriller is getting to her before she swallows it.

I like to hope that my depression struggles with ME.— Imperator Gastropoda (she/her) (@DarcyLRoss) February 19, 2019
"Aw shit, she's taking her Vitamin D supplements AGAIN."
"Noooo, not an 11 minute morning yoga video, this is going to set the tenor of her whole day!"
"FUCK she saw a really cute crustacean. Pack it up boys, let's go home."
Democrats agree that Bernie Sanders is terrible except for all of his 2016 policy ideas which they love and/or have adopted as their own.— Joe Dunman (@JoeDunman) February 19, 2019
Entirely accurate. Librarians are gold, and romance writers will flat out fuck your shit up. https://t.co/zwTAvuK6b0— John Scalzi (@scalzi) February 20, 2019
I just saw a Twitter thread from a single author with 100 posts on it. You know what, if you're doing that, at some point along the way you should just realize you're writing a goddamned blog post, then do that and point people to it.— John Scalzi (@scalzi) February 18, 2019
When he called the Charlottesville neo fascists, “fine people,” you were fine.— Myke Cole (@MykeCole) February 18, 2019
When he called Mexicans “murderers and rapists,” you were fine.

That reminds me of this story from 2007. Reporter's wife discovers she's a world class Tetris player. https://t.co/yCTdfbaa8u— sick of mind and body (@djr) February 16, 2019
Picard management tip: Humility without confidence is sheepishness. Confidence without humility is arrogance.— Picard Tips (@PicardTips) February 15, 2019
This is your reminder that the timeline starts today. Not yesterday, not 5 years ago, not January 1, not when you reach some arbitrary goal or age. If you want to write a book, start now. Think of where you'll be in 3 months. Small actions add up. Just start, then don't stop.— Delilah S. Dawson (@DelilahSDawson) February 14, 2019
For today's #TenThings, let's talk about PLOT TWISTS. What are they? Why do you need them? How do you set them up? Did Luke totally regret kissing his sister?— Delilah S. Dawson (@DelilahSDawson) February 14, 2019

Remember, the super rich said we couldn’t afford to end slavery, offer Social Security, end Jim Crow or guarantee women’s rights. But truth was always that we couldn’t afford not to.— Rev. Dr. Barber (@RevDrBarber) January 31, 2019
