Yesterday I pointed out that John Banville wrote a new Philip Marlowe novel under the pen name Benjamin Black. If you’re a fan of Banville — and you live in LA — you can hear him talk about the book this Thursday at Sundance Cinemas.
you can also hear him this Wednesday (tomorrow) at George Washington University 7:30pm DC.
I was accepted into a 3-month-long creative non-fiction workshop. All the negative ghosts of christmas past, present, and future have come to circle my brain. I’m terrified, but I’m gonna do it. Today is writing sunday.

Very useful to know, pass and share please.
I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this.
I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head.
Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away.
So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out.
I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot

“What’s your greatest struggle right now?”
“Trying to hold my family together. Ever since my dad died, none of the brothers and sisters talk to each other anymore. I’m the only one making an effort. I feel like if it wasn’t for me, the family would drift apart completely.”
“What was it about your dad that held everyone together?”
“That’s what I’ve been trying to figure out.”
Bookmarked because I want to know if this guy figures it out. It’s happening in my family, too.
