Your "A Good Man" never fails to make me cry. And not just a drop of tear but like a continuous flow of tears. I've read for like a dozen times already and it still makes me cry. I just read it today at 10AM, I know it's too early for crying, but here I am in my couch reading your story and yes, crying. Maybe even if I only read the last part, I'd still cry. I hope you write more and good luck in your future endeavors! Cheers x

Anon, thanks so much for this.  I was having kind of a crappy morning yesterday and when I sneaked a look at my mail and saw this waiting for me once I got to work, well, you really added a brightness to the entire rest of a stressful day!  So thank you for taking the time to send such a nice note, it means a lot.  And sorry (but I’m actually weirdly ecstatic) for the story making you cry!

This is the best explanation I could come up with for why it takes me so long to do updates sometimes when, at other times, I’m typing them up like clockwork.

also this:

Add in long stretches of panic that I’ve taken on more than I can handle & this is my process.

Also, coming up with great ideas in the shower & then failing to go write them down immediately due to drying off & getting dressed.

I’m so glad I’m not the only one who finds their best ideas in the shower (and then figuratively watches them disappear down the drain).  And basically all of the above.

Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions. Dale Spender, an Australian feminist who has been a strong advocate of female rights in this area, noted that teachers who tried to restore the balance by deliberately ‘favouring’ the girls were astounded to find that despite their efforts they continued to devote more time to the boys in their classrooms. Another study reported that a male science teacher who managed to create an atmosphere in which girls and boys contributed more equally to discussion felt that he was devoting 90 per cent of his attention to the girls. And so did his male pupils. They complained vociferously that the girls were getting too much talking time.

In other public contexts, too, such as seminars and debates, when women and men are deliberately given an equal amount of the highly valued talking time, there is often a perception that they are getting more than their fair share. Dale Spender explains this as follows:

“The talkativeness of women has been gauged in comparison not with men but with silence. Women have not been judged on the grounds of whether they talk more than men, but of whether they talk more than silent women.”

In other words, if women talk at all, this may be perceived as ‘too much’ by men who expect them to provide a silent, decorative background in many social contexts.

PART 2

Hahaha, this is brilliant!  But seriously, what gets me is how contrived that love triangle felt.  It did nothing to add to the story and just seemed forcefully thrown in as some sort of check list item.  It was the one aspect that took me out of the experience of the book while reading.  And that’s not that it takes away from the series as a whole, I just personally found it to be the one thing that annoyed me in an otherwise incredible series. *shrug*

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Dancing Groot

“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel
