Write an entire monologue with your main character if you have to. Spend a chapter just exploring the life story of an antagonist. They don’t have to be scenes in chronological order. They don’t even have to end up in your book. But they will help you to keep going.

Because you must keep going. Just a little more. You are stubborn. You are exhausted. You are determined. You are a Writer.
You and I – are like two mountains.
You and I – not meeting in this world.
Anna Akhmatova, from This Remorseless Black Separation (via violentwavesofemotion)

This August was the hottest ever recorded, and the summer was tied for the fourth warmest, according to new data from NASA. More worrying, however, is the broader trend: August marked the 354th consecutive month where the global average temperature measured higher than the 20th-century average, according to the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). 

In short, if you’re under the age of 30, you’ve never lived through a month that was colder than average.

Don’t expect this kind of news to go away.

You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.
