Never Date a Writer by xstephens

Never Date a Writer by xstephens
Never date a writer because she’ll fictionalize everything. She’ll write about things you have done to her, or things you never did for her. She’ll write about how you never bought her flowers. Not once. She’ll say in well-constructed prose how the whole time you were together, she never came home from a long week to see a vase full of roses, or daises, or anything. She’ll describe times you embarrassed her, like at a party. She’ll continue this emphasis on what you had done to her, by describing things she had found, but said nothing about. She’ll later describe the moment in the bedroom when she sat at the foot of the bed and you kneeled in front of her. And she’ll send you a manuscript and you’ll be on the couch where you both had sat and you’ll read every word. You’ll sit alone on that couch where you made love to her and you won’t move and the glass of whiskey on the table will not be touched.

The longest joke in the world. A man in the desert. So, there’s a man crawling through the desert.

When you get your heart broken for the first time, you can’t imagine loving someone else again or having someone else love you. You worry about your ex finding love before you do, you worry about being damaged goods. And then it happens. Someone else loves you and you can sleep well at night.

The vellum on which it is written has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century (1404–1438), and may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance.[1][2] The manuscript is named after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer who purchased it in 1912.[3] Some of the pages are missing, but about 240 remain. The text is written from left to right, and most of the pages have illustrations or diagrams.

Eye to eye and head to head, (Keep the measure, Nag.) Manzanita Advent Tree A few weeks ago, I posted a blurb about Advent calendars. They were on my mind this year because it is one tradition I’ve been saving until I had children of my own that were old enough to get it. Sort of like how I’ve never read the Harry Potter series because I’m saving them for when my children are older. You know, so we can experience those novels together. I beg you, please don’t tell anyone I have yet to pick up a Potter. It’s shocking, but it’s true.
