How much Frozen Yogurt is Too Much Frozen Yogurt?

Originally meant to be a fancy, obscure, art blog, this page became a dumping ground for all my assorted interests (of which there are many).
Which is alright, because there are too many fancy, obscure, art blogs out there already.

I am a 23-year-old college student majoring in Design. Originally from Oakland, CA I currently reside in Davis, CA. There may legitimately be Too Much frozen fogurt available between this town and Sacramento next door, just a road bike ride away. And I don't have much of a sweet tooth. Except when I do.
I've recently spent several months away from school, away from work, away from "real life", in an attempt to recover from depression and burnout. I also stopped using tumblr. Now that I'm back and dipping my toes into all these things, I plan to use this blog as an actual blog, following friends, documenting my life, connecting and growing in healthy ways. Hopefully it will become more directed than it was before. That is... if I manage to become more directed. Let's go!

Calling all Polish speakers!!!

My grandmother (78), a holocaust survivor who was born in Warsaw, desperately wants this letter (written after the war by the Polish woman who rescued her- Anna Neklasowa) to be translated since her Polish is very rusty at this point. If you’re a Polish speaker willing to help please contact me. I need this to be translated to English so I could translate it to Hebrew!

Thank you.

Do you speak Polish?

I need to interrupt the regularly scheduled programming to announce that Little Humans is coming out in TWO WEEKS. I was going to wait until I got home to start banging that drum, but my agent emailed me that my publisher is “freaking out a bit” that I haven’t mentioned it in so long. So allow me to announce that LITTLE HUMANS IS GOING TO BE THE GREATEST KIDS BOOK IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE. 
According to Publisher’s Weekly, “the vivid collection underscores both the diversity and commonality among children, and may well inspire readers to imagine the lives and stories behind each child.” Kirkus Reviews says the photographs are “so striking” and bring such “large delight,” that you won’t notice the text is a “little platitudinous.” (Let’s be honest— we don’t know what ‘platitudinous’ means, and neither do your kids. And anyone who uses that word is not getting invited to our birthday parties.)
But in 100% seriousness, I’m really looking forward to the next few weeks because me, my girlfriend, my dog, my mom, my friends, my editor, and everyone involved in Little Humans thinks that this book came out perfect. It was really a labor of love. So I’m looking forward to seeing if you, your girlfriend, your dog, your mom, your friends, your editor, and your kids love Little Humans as much as we do. 
If you’re planning on getting the book anyway, you can help my publisher get some sleep by preordering now. The book will ship on October 7th:
AMAZON: http://amzn.to/WPMamUBARNES AND NOBLE: http://bit.ly/1eawvWEINDIEBOUND: http://bit.ly/1zA0Sw6

WAIT. WHAT. THERE’S GONNA BE A LITTLE HUMANS BOOK? OH EM F GEEEEE.

How to Write Dual Main Characters →

fictionwritingtips:

I recently got a question regarding multiple protagonists, so I wanted to address this in a blog post.

Some writing experts will tell you that having dual protagonists is a bad idea. Personally, I like writing stories with a single protagonist, but I try not to discourage multiple protagonists if that’s what the writer wants to do. It can work and it has worked very well, so here are a few tips to get your started.

Develop Each Protagonist Separately

If you want to have two or more protagonists, you need to make each of them dynamic in their own way. If one character is developed less than the other, the audience will naturally lean toward that one. It’s hard to make your audience care about more than one main character, so to do that you need to develop each one individually and know their separate personalities.

Give Each Character the Time and Attention They Deserve

Again, one character can’t be more important than the other if you want them both to be a protagonist. I like to think about Breaking Bad when addressing this point. Walter White had the same amount of character development that Jesse had. I know technically Walter White was the main character, but it’s definitely arguable that Jesse’s story was also the focus. The story would not have developed the same way if they both hadn’t been in each other’s lives. Know all of your characters’ journeys and what they each want/need.

Figure out a Pattern

The best way to tackle dual main characters is to devise a plan. What viewpoint do you want to tell your story in? If you’re going for first person, are you going to alternate chapters? Remember that using first person POV and only focusing on one main character will make that character the most important voice. If you want to have successful dual protagonist, their voices need to feel equal and their actions need to feel meaningful. Figure out a pattern and stick to it.

When writing a story with more than one protagonist, organization is super important. You need to keep track of each main character’s story, so it might require a little bit more work. Hope this helps!
