Reading Like a Writer


One of the most common pieces of writing advice is to read. Important, but vague. An easy way to analyze novels to become a better writer is to sort what you read into what you don’t like and what you do like. Spend some time thinking–whether alone, in writing, or through conversation–about what makes you like or dislike the writing, and brainstorm ways that the writing could have been improved or changed.

Here are some possible dislikes and likes that you might notice when reading:

What You Don’t Like: 

  • Boring spots that you skim through
  • Unnecessary scenes that don’t advance the plot
  • Confusing sub-plots
  • Chunky dialogue 
  • Characters acting outside their character
  • Poorly done tropes 
  • Too much telling, not enough showing
  • Too much showing, not enough telling
  • Overly flowery prose
  • Big words for the sake of big words
  • One-dimensional villains
  • Lack of distinctive voices

What You Do Like: 

  • Twists on tropes 
  • Scenes where you felt like you were a part of that world
  • Characters you think about after the book ends
  • Clever plot twists
  • Good information reveal
  • Villains and antagonists that keep you on your toes
  • Characters that know what they want
  • Characters forced to make sacrifices 
  • Side-characters that have personalities of their own
  • Scenes so intense that you find yourself peeking at the next page
  • Protagonists with flaws that hold them back
  • Scenes where you felt the emotions conveyed

there comes a point when you stop giving a shit about being nice to horrible people. it doesn’t feel good, it won’t change them, all it does is make you easier to step on. so fuck it i’m not a nice person. if you’re horrible i’m gonna be horrible. i’m done lmao

A classic novel isn’t good because it’s a classic, rather it is a classic because it was important to the development of the art. And that certainly doesn’t mean that any given person, on any given day, will enjoy reading it. It means that, as a writer, I should be aware of what the classic novel changed in the historical progression of novel story telling. Some classics are pretty terrible, even unreadable, but they are still important.

I had to find this post again because I’ve been thinking about how other Star Wars cast members (John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran and others) have talked about the extent to which they had to keep all Star Wars mentions from their family. They didn’t even tell anyone that they’d been *cast* in a SW film, let alone discuss any of the actual film details.

And here’s Jiang Wen, gets the super top secret script and the damn thing is written in English so naturally he’s like “FFS I can’t read this!” so he calls his boys to come and READ THE SCRIPT and get their opinion. Non-disclosure agreement be damned. lol

Another addendum: he told this story at one of the red carpet premiers, and there he adds that his son said “this is a hero” to which he replied, “but don’t you think superheroes are silly?” and his son said “but this is a humorous hero” and that was what sold him. The humor was important. <3

I love Jiang Wen.

the guy pissed off the chinese government at least once so much that they were considering banning him from directing for seven years, and likely have. 

‘disney told me not to do this’ probably doesn’t even register on his radar.

whole recap here




“Explain Freud’s structural model of the psyche”


this really is the best one


Wanting not to be touched doesn’t make you a mean person. Wanting people to respect your personal boundaries doesn’t make you annoying. You shouldn’t have to put yourself through things that hurt or upset you just because other people think they are harmless.
