Save Net Neutrality – Call Congress!
This site can't exist without a neutral internet. Fight for #NetNeutrality!
I grew up with a free and open internet. I found my friends and my family there. I will not allow this attack on our way of life to go uncontested. The internet is, first and foremost, a tool for communications.
#StoptheFCC from redefining it as yet another way for companies to control what we see and know. Call, write letters, make a ruckus. :D
"Make a ruckus." -- Jessica Rosenworcel, FCC commissioner
"I aim to misbehave." -- Firefly

The power of imagination makes us infinite — John Muir
Imagination is wonderful. Our world tells us we need to do this or that, but that keeps us from being able to come up with creative solutions to problems. And it keeps us from being creative.
Here are 5 ways to help yourself open up.
Trust that what you are doing is important.
You don’t have to get anything for your writing to have it be worthwhile. It takes time, and it’s not always outwardly doing anything, but I can tell you that you will benefit from creating.
Let go of the fear of recrimination.
Repetition isn’t bad. In fact, it can be very useful.
Here are five ways that you can use repetition to help you.
Ack! Meter AGAIN?
I-I know. I kind of messed it up before. Also, it helps to revisit things like this every now and again.
But it’s boring! And lame! Did I mention it was boring?
Yeah, it kind of is. It’s one of those fussy things. But it helps give your writing better…flow, you might call it.
O-Oh. Okay. Why?
There’s an inherent musicality in words, in the interplay of different stresses. If you put them together in the right way, you can mold your words to flow sweetly and calmly…or you can purposefully make them very jarring. (If you’re writing a scary scene, think of how it might help to have your words assisted by a jarring sort of rhythm. Conversely, think of how two lovers might speak to one another, and how you can show us their love for one another without relying entirely on just the words they speak.)
So I..hm. So how does this work?
