Social conscience may lead to change of the law…
The difference being the order.
I think the difference between internet activism and media / demonstrations / protests / petitions is that the latter four seek change in the law, whereas internet activism (usually) tends to seek a change or revolution in social conscience.
the thing about yahoo trying to buy tumblr
is that tumblr can best serve its audience as an independent service
saying you shouldn’t be sad because other people are sadder is like saying you shouldn’t be happy because other people are happier. i.e; ridiculous
i am slowly but surely becoming a writing blogger
y’all better be okay with this
I have a friend who loves to write, but she’s stuck in the same situation; she doesn’t always like the end result, and that makes her reluctant to try. But writing isn’t all about the end result, it’s also about the process; the ideas, the emotions.
My advice (and please don’t take my word as the be-all-and-end-all) would be to just write. If you’re stressed or busy, then don’t write much- sometimes, when I have a hectic week, I’ll only get a few sentences or paragraph drafts done. The way I see it, writing is like drawing with words- when you don’t have time for a full painting, just do a rough sketch. Enough to hold the idea you had, and the direction it was going in. Then go back and flesh it out when you have time, if you still like the idea.
Another thing is not to be too worried that all your pieces are brilliant. They won’t be. Sometimes things won’t flow, it’ll just sound clunky. Just set it aside, and move on. If you really like the idea, go back and try rewriting it later, with a fresh point of view.
The best thing I have ever done, when it comes to my self-esteem in writing, has been to keep a diary of all my (in my opinion, anyway) best pieces, plus inspiring / interesting quotes from other sources. Every time I look through my diary, it reminds me of all the good things I can do that I might have forgotten about, and it encourages me to keep writing.
I hope this helps, anon. Happy writing! :)
P.S. It’s worth noting that having a positive environment can be useful too. I often go down to the park to write, as it’s kind of an escape for me. People form a part of this environment, too- try finding at least one person to whom you can reliably give your writing to for constructive and positive criticism- it works wonders. :)
Move out of this country and be a buyer for retailer write some articles and travel around a lot and enjoy life. What is yours?
Travel until I find somewhere I love (and then travel some more), find amazing people to surround myself with, (hopefully) fall in love with someone with a beautiful soul, and write things for other people.
