Will during the Infernal Devices

  • Will: Conceal, don't feel.
  • Will: Don't let them know.
  • Will: Don't them in, don't let them see.
  • Will: ...
  • Will: oh screw it she's hot

I’m only on chapter 5 of City of Fallen Angels and I’m already falling apart. Like, I usually save this kind of compassion for Alec, but like Jace? It’s okay. You are precious and Clary loves you and it’s going to be okay. I don’t know how, but it is.

Usually Jace manages to break my heart in the, would you please stop being an idiot, kind of way, but this? The nightmares and the vulnerability and the vocal desperation? This is new.

The Mortal Instruments Trilogy: Seconds Chances Changed My Mind

The Mortal Instruments Trilogy: Seconds Chances Changed My Mind

City of Bones/City of Ashes/City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

Before you say anything, yes, I know that the Mortal Instruments series isn’t a trilogy. I’ve read the first three books now, and there are three more. 

And The Infernal Devices. And the Dark Artifices. And The Bane Chronicles. It never ends, and that’s always good news. 

But, I read somewhere, that this series was originally a trilogy,…

Some advice I got from a guy in my writing group when I was pitying myself about being 20 years old and having never had anything even close to a love life. 

Mike: You’re 20. You’re cute. You have plenty of time to find that special someone (whoever it might be). 11:36 PM

Mike: Your place doesn’t matter. You can find someone no matter where you live. 11:36 PM

Mike: This world is populated with a huge amount of people. 11:37 PM

Mike: If travelling is what you want to do… then do it. 11:37 PM

Mike: Your first and only focus shoud be on what sophie wants. 11:37 PM

Mike: That’s it. It’s YOUR life. Do something with it. Do NOT focus on adding anyone else to it. 11:38 PM

Mike: other people will join with your life… and leave it… it’s YOUR stream you need to focus on. 11:38 PM

Mike: As soon as you forget that, you forget yourself and that’s when things happen that we regret. 11:39 PM

Mike: As long as you are looking out for Sophie… all the other stuff will fall into place. 11:39 PM

Mike: If you are you… no matter who or what decides to join your stream…. you will be happy. 11:40 PM

Mike: Keep that your number one focus. 

This writing group is probably one of the best things that could have happened to me this year. I’m crying in the best way possible, because this was something I really needed to hear.

I joined this writing group at the end of July as a Camp NaNoWriMo chat group, and I wasn’t even doing Camp, but they accepted me with open arms anyways. I will never be thankful enough.
