Hollywood is famous for its treatment of writers. They are the low man on the totem pole, the person banned from the set, the guy who wrote the Great American novel drinking himself to death in Los Angeles, rewriting dumb scripts. It’s funny, as Hollywood — along with movies around the world — is obsessed with portraying “writers” on screen, which is a weird profession to lionize as writing is the least visually pleasing job of all. There are a lot of bad movies about writers out there. At Flavorwire, we wanted to make the definitive list of the 50 Best Films About Writers of all time, with the requisite mix of biopics, book adaptations (what’s up Stephen King and John Irving), foreign films that actually feature female writers, po-mo meta surrealist studies of madness (very frequent), and the works of Woody Allen. 50.

I love peeking in other’s offices, seeing what hangs on their walls, what piles up on their desktops, and what sort of filing systems they have in place.

The Psychology of Writing and the Cognitive Science of the Perfect Daily Routine. Books. Writers Who Published Great Books Before Age 25. Picture it: teenage Mary Shelley was on a vacation getaway, with her husband Percy and some of his rambunctious poet friends, like that rogue Lord Byron… and out of the group of legends, it’s Shelley herself who arguably published the greatest work of all at the ridiculous age of 20: Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, a book that has penetrated our human consciousness. In honor of Shelley’s birthday this month, here’s a list of 25 other writers who created heartbreakingly beautiful work before they could get a discount on a rental car or have their publishers demand an active Twitter account.

If you’re 26, get on out of here. (However, interestingly enough, 26 seems to be a magic age for a lot of writers, starting with Thomas Pynchon, which is a whole other list.) Enjoy the depressingly youthful visages and luminous skin below. Norman Mailer — The Naked and the Dead Mailer became a star when this book was published. Celtic Sacred Trees and Woods. To the Celts and many other peoples of the old world, certain trees held special significance as a fuel for heat, cooking, building materials and weaponry. In addition to this however, many woods also provided a powerful spiritual presence. The specific trees varied between different cultures and geographic locations, but those believed to be "sacred" shared certain traits.

Unusual size, beauty, the wide range of materials they provided, unique physical characteristics, or simply the power of the tree's spirit could grant it a central place in the folklore and mythology of a culture. Even our modern culture finds that certain trees capture our imagination. The mighty oak, the mystical yew and so many others are reminders of the power that trees have on our lives.

Trees are living things, filled with the essence and energy and of the Elementals and Mother Earth with an aura of power which is visible to those who are in total balance and harmony. ALDER This tree was sacred to the Druids. How to Make a Pattern: Learn How to Draw Patterns Step by Step.

No one has cracked the encrypted language of plants. Insects chirp, bees buzz, animals growl, hiss, hum, and even transmit low-frequency sound waves.

But plants, as far as we know, never say a thing. Most of what our earliest ancestors knew of plants has been forgotten. Yet, in ancient times, and in the not so distant past, humans had a greater intimacy, knowledge, and understanding of the plants that were particular to their environment. The first attempt to catalog plants is found in sacred Indian texts from 1100 B.C., known as the Avestan Writings. As such, and as a means to explain why a plant had such properties in lei of science, many were bestowed various mythologies and symbolism. Roses, for example, were considered symbols of love in ancient Egypt. Bamboo (actually the world's tallest grass, its height reaches 60 inches), represents various things.
