"Literature is the record we have of the conversation between those of us now alive on earth and everyone who’s come before and will come after, the cumulative repository of humanity’s knowledge, wonder, curiosity, passion, rage, grief and delight. It’s as useless as a spun-sugar snowflake and as practical as a Swiss Army knife."

Dana Stevens and Adam Kirsch discuss whether literature should be considered useful. (via millionsmillions)

zombres:

can we just skip to the part where i’m a published, successful author with a ridiculously talented fanbase that makes brilliant fanart and knows how to photoshop like magicians and there are dozens of inspired fanmixes on 8tracks and hundreds of shippy fics on AO3 and i can just wallow and cavort in all of the A+ fandom stuffs?

"Gendered criticism has a silencing effect, not just on the women criticized, but on all women who come into contact with it. I can’t tell you how many people have said to me, ‘I’m so glad I’m not published, that my writing is a hobby, so I don’t have to deal with this’,” she says “Every time something like this happens, some women’s ambitions get curtailed and quashed and discouraged, by both the thing itself and the culture’s reaction to it. And that’s the thing that keeps me up at night, not that one crazy man thinks I shouldn’t be writing."

"You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else."
