im a kid, i like being a kid, and i like making every one else think im an adult :D i lie about my age a lot, im 14, or am i?

i got a tumbler www.tumblr.com/blog/finnicky-a… art suicide! yay!
Interests
i posted this on tumblr and thought i should add it here!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the sun slipped in through the window, sliding across their face in warm fingers and tangling in their honey hair. blue eyes blinked tiredly from under the red-gold mop and they glared mistrustfully at the window, wishing they had remembered to close the drapes the night before. though really as they had not gone to bed until the small hours of the morning there would have been no point in closing them, only to wake up hours late and hungover from sleep. they dragged themselves out of bed, scrubbing a hand over their face and running the other through their hair, trying to make it look less like a dead animal.

—————————————————————————————————

alright so i just thought i would do a little writerly thing about gender neutral pronouns and writing them with them. a few of my notes/observations:

dont EVER use the word “it” to describe a person, it will offend your audience and make you seem like a douche-y person.

add description, description is your friend. while writing with these pronouns is perfectly expectable and fine because of their rarity in literature to describe a single person your writing may become stilted in a way it does not if you are writing using he/she or him/her

they/their not them, don’t ask me why its a fluidity thing, they and their sound better read aloud then them and their or they and them (with the exeption of a line like “they helped them to their feet”)  

give them a name! a really nice, cool, kickass name that you can use instead of repeating they/their again and again…

alright that is all for now, have fun, be respectful and do your research! would your character prefer they/their or he/him? or somthing else entirely? anyway that is all!

(small note: i am not someone who identifies outside of my assigned gender, i have friends who do, but i don’t.  i have all the respect and admiration in the world for people who chose to/are that way and i always try to show that respect while writing diverse characters into my books. that said if i do say something that offends you please tell me so that i can correct myself and apologize,  i did not do it intentionally!)

I'm doing pretty good! Been doing a bit too much for my writing to improve as much as I'd like... but art is slowly making it's way along :)

Yeah! I had to start reading it all over again though, because I forgot where I was ;_;

By the way, I cut my hair. I told Gothmo, (who is back from Iceland), and she really wants to see it! I'm embarrassed though... >///< it's been so long since I've cut my hair.
