Ask Me Anything  

Audrey, Detroit:

I write, I read, I edit, and I drink way too much coffee and tea, but that's what makes me a writer who is always improving, always growing and always getting better.

“Substitute 'damn' every time you're inclined to write 'very;' your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.” - Mark Twain

"I never wish to be easily defined. I’d rather float over other people’s minds as something strictly fluid and non-perceivable; more like a transparent, paradoxically iridescent creature rather than an actual person."
Franz Kafka, from a diary entry dated 23 March 1914 (via perfect)

"And I really wanted to see you, too," she said. "When I couldn’t see you anymore, I realized that. It was as clear as if the planets all of a sudden lined up in a row for me. I really need you. You’re a part of me; I’m a part of you. You know, somewhere—I’m not at all sure where—I think I cut something’s throat. Sharpening my knife, my heart a stone. Symbolically, like making a gate in China. Do you understand what I’m saying?"

"I think so."

"Then come and get me."
