“The (500) Days of Summer attitude of “He wants you so bad” seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.” – Joseph Gordon-Levitt (x) Ugh, I’m sorry to double post with two quotes, but he’s dropping another truth bomb here. I hate when people misinterpret 500DOS and think of Summer as some kind of bitch, or, alternately, as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. That’s only how his character saw her. To me, this movie was basically about Nice Guy Syndrome: A guy who thinks he’s just so nice that he’s entitled to the woman he wants, and when she decides she doesn’t want him back, she becomes a bitch, or a whore.

amandaonwriting: Cheat Sheets for Writing Body Language We are always told to use body language in our writing. Sometimes, it’s easier said than written. I decided to create these cheat sheets to help you show a character’s state of mind. Obviously, a character may exhibit a number of these behaviours. For example, he may be shocked and angry, or shocked and happy. Use these combinations as needed. by Amanda Patterson via Tumblr

Cheat Sheets for Writing Body Language

secret-agent-sam: fatgirlopinions: sazziscooler: angelicasylum: thisisthinprivilege: Don’t know if you guys have seen this. If you go to the fb page this is from, you’ll have to scroll down to find the OP. Pretty sure this shit doesn’t happen to thin people. Oh holy hell. I would take that note and knock on every fucking neighbors door and ask DID YOU WRITE THIS? =D Can we also mention the fact that this person is in their own fucking backyard? How about you don’t fucking look out your window into THEIR YARD? Creepy as fuck. Fat people can’t win. You don’t work out, you’re a lazy fatty who isn’t concerned about their health. You do work out, you’re a public eyesore that no body wants to be forced to look at. Sigh. If I were the receiver of this note, I would remain my backyard work out, only naked. People are such shitheads. Some of the comments on FB suggested doing that. Others recommended telling the Postmaster General about it, since it’s illegal. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/VH9dzl
