Aspire No More.

I am not a brilliant man, but I play one on Tumblr. I am a writer with moves like Jagger.

If you only love us,

when we obey your rules and do all the right things,

is that even love?

No. It’s love under condition. That’s it.

Stephen King AMA on Reddit

A few gems:

The only thing you can do with writer’s block is wait it out. Sometimes a few stories just die. There’s no explaining it. It goes with the territory.

On the question of how he dealt with rejection:

I just went on to the next story - there’s no way to deal with rejection other than to continue on, banging on the door.

When doubt rears its head:

I think all writers live with doubt. The trick is to put them aside as much as possible, and concentrate on that day’s work.

Attitude toward ebooks:

I like stories. The delivery system isn’t as important to me as a good story. I will say this: if you drop a book into the toilet, it doesn’t short out. And a lot of us read in the bathroom!

Most important lesson for storytellers:

I think the most important thing about storytelling is to let the characters lead, and not try to force them into things they don’t want to do.

On fanfic:

I think you might be talking about fanfic. I have no control over that, and I understand the urge, but I think writers would be best served by creating new worlds.

On success:

If I wasn’t writing, I’d probably be teaching school, but this is what I was meant to do. As far as high achievements, that’s for other people to decide. I try to keep myself amused. Every day I do that is a good day.

Where do you get your ideas from?

A little used idea shop in Pittsburgh. You sell them your soul, they give you ideas. :-)

I’M SORRY BUT THIS REALLY PISSED ME OFF AND I NEEDED TO VENT.
So I liked this page last year for the shits and gigs, as you do. I found it funny, and let slide the few sexist posts.
Only recently- and after I got a tumblr- did I really start to notice the abundance of rape, sexist and racist jokes appearing on my news feed. And it pissed me off.
I said nothing, however, because what could I do? Send in a message to the page and get labelled a whore and a slut by the Admins as I’ve seen so many people do? 
Then this motherfucking gem popped up.
I usually don’t get involved in these sorts of things; if I do my comment gets lost more often than not and goes unnoticed. But I had to comment, I really had to.
I thought my argument was valid and whole, and I was actually rather happy when he admin directly replied to my comment. 
I narrowed down my five favourite games ever and posted them.
Of course, I got beaten and labeled down once again. 
When I asked for a rational clarification of his definitions of “casual” and “core” he did not reply. It was only when I directly insinuated the bias of his claim did I get a response. 
“A feminist I see.  No arguments need to be made. Good luck with getting them eggs fertilized”
Note the use of “feminist” as an insult.
I have had my fair share of gender specific hate regarding gaming. I get told I am a fake and a bitch if I get a high score; I get told to “suck a dick because you are better at that, bitch” if I get a low score; I get told to “get back in the kitchen, slut” without any prompt at all, simply because I have a vagina. 
I am beyond sick of this. I hate the fact that if a male who hypothetically plays a few hours of CoD can be easily called a gamer by the wider community but I if were to say that I was a level 34 on Skyrim I would immediately be called a fake geek girl, a casual gamer and a liar.
I hate the fact that, even though 45% of gaming consumers are female, developers and publishers still believe that there is not a large enough demographic for female protagonists.
I hate the fact that most women in video games are no more than sexulised objects in skimpy clothing.
I hate the fact that I cannot enjoy a game without being labeled and branded because of the fact that I posses a vagina and not a penis.
~sorry about the long post clogging up your dash. I needed to vent~


All that back and forth. The dolt’s argument is worthless and he shot himself in the foot addressing those girls who are not “gamers” as…"Girl GAMERS,"
